Digital Smart Logistics. Managing Supply Chain 4.0: Concepts, Components and Strategic Perspective
AbstractFast pace of development of ICT over last decades led to enormous transformations in many spheres of economic and social life. Impossible has become possible, dreams have become reality. The proof for this is the concept of Industry 4.0. It’s not only a buzzword now. It has become a business practice and a wellestablished research area with a rapidly growing body of knowledge. Its size can be defined by Google Scholar that returns over 32000 search results when asked about Industry 4.0. Logistics is also the beneficiary of these changes. It has become digital and is becoming smart. As such, it becomes a process that, to the greatest extent, shifts supply chains from the inside to make them fully supportive to the concept of Industry 4.0. On the basis of a simple transcription we can call such structures Supply Chains 4.0. The purpose of the paper is to deliberate on the Supply Chain 4.0 concept, its delimitation, drivers and barriers, and to define its capabilities to create value under conditions of Industry 4.0 in order to give the discussion a strategic management perspective. Major recent developments in ICT as well as seminal theoretical advances will be taken into account to cope with the operationalization of Supply Chains 4.0 while providing a theoretical point of view on supply chain design, its operational performance and process maturity. The paper aims to designate new paths of scientific cognition, to open new avenues of detailed research, and to fine-tune scientific discussion in the field.
