Abstract in different language: The global competition requires that the companies adapt themselves to technological changes rapidly, develop new products, reduce the cost, shorten the time to market, and increase the quality. In this context, supplier involvement in New Product Development (NPD) is determinant for a company to respond to the requirements of the increasingly dynamic markets. The main purpose of the paper is to demonstrate the importance of supplier involvement in NPD, buyer- supplier relationships and their effects on buyer’s NPD process, highlighting the bene fi ts of supplier involvement, the barriers, the strategic aspects and industry aspects. These issues are addressed with a case study from the semiconductor industry. Besides helping to understand NPD in the semiconductor industry, the contribution and fi ndings of this work are clear: the results achieved con fi rm the fi ndings of studies referred in the literature review, and con fi rm that the semiconductor industry sector requires a closer and more complex relationship structure with suppliers, given the speci fi cities and challenges of the sector, such as rapid technological changes, permanent innovation, global competition, reduction of cost and time-to-market cycle, increased capacity, among other. The main contribution of the paper to the scienti fi c literature and to managers is the better understanding of the buyer-supplier relationships in NPD in the semiconductor industry.
