    Abstract

    En este trabajo se analizan los factores más relevantes de la cultura organizacional que aparecen en las redes virtuales de fabricación global (RVFG). Estas organizaciones están formadas por empresas muy dinámicas que fabrican todo tipo de productos o servicios, las cuales establecen entre sí relaciones de tipo horizontal y vertical, pudiendo incluso ser competidores, donde no es necesario mantener internamente grandes recursos fabriles sino gestionar y compartir eficientemente los recursos de la red. El estudio de la cultura organizacional a nivel de red incluye aspectos como la similitud de las prácticas culturales entre sus actores, la integración social, la transferencia de conocimiento tácito o la importancia de la confianza en la red. Mediante el modelo teórico propuesto se analizará la presencia, bajo una perspectiva sistémica, de unos valores y prácticas culturales homogéneas en las que se puedan identificar los actores de la red. Finalmente, para validar el modelo propuesto, se aplicará la metodología del caso a un ejemplo de la industria aeronáutica que ha constituido una de las relaciones con más éxito dentro de las RVFGs, la colaboración entre GE y SNECMA para la fabricación del motor CFM 56. / This paper analyzes the most relevant factors of organizational culture that appear in Global Manufacturing Virtual Networks (GMVNs). These organizations are formed by highly dynamic manufacturing companies, that may even be even competitors, which establish horizontal and vertical relations among themselves, and where it is not necessary to maintain internally many manufacturing assets but to manage and share efficiently network resources. This study of organizational culture at the network level includes aspects such as the similarity of cultural practices, social embeddedness, tacit knowledge transfer or the importance of trust in the network. By using the proposed theoretical model, it will analyzed the presence, under a systemic perspective, of homogeneous values and cultural practices where network actors can feel indentified. Finally, in order to validate the proposed model, the case methodology will be applied to one of the most successful collaborations of GMVNs within the aeronautics industry, the collaboration between GE and SNECMA to manufacture the CFM56 engine.
