The aim of this paper is to analyse manufacturing networks and supply chains from the operations strategy perspective. These two areas have traditionally been treated as separate research objectives, but under the conditions of the ongoing globalisation, there is a need to integrate these complementary disciplines to study the networks of facilities. In this paper, there is presented a typology for the analysis of the network system resulting in four basic network configurations. On the basis of this configuration, there is presented the coordination matrix, which distinguishes four types of the coordination activities.Keywords:
