Aims and Scope of the Special Issue
There is a substantially increasing amount of research on new information technologies and digitization in the context of Industry 4.0 and supply chain management. There is substantial evidence of downloaded articles in blockchain technology, Industry 4.0, Smart Manufacturing, and other digitization technologies in almost every journal supply chain, digitization, and operations journals. We are also on the cusp of new emergent technology such as 5G which will also contribute to performance analysis, big data, and supply chain management. Some of the most currently downloaded papers, based on personal experience and websites of various journals with this information (e.g. the International Journal of Production Research) show these are by far the most downloaded articles. Additionally, performance measurement, organizational and supply chain, are growing in importance as Big Data is central to the digitalization revolution.
The "Exploring the Supply Chain and Organizational Interfaces between Performance Measurement Systems and Modern Digitization" special issue aims to:
- bridge the literature gaps in the literature with emphasis on the interplay between performance measurement systems, digitization, and information systems in the context of emerging new information technologies, integration and a dynamic technological and inter-organizational business environment;
- offer to practitioners fresh, new applications of digitization to support the performance measurement in different processes or areas within and between organizations;
- advance the understanding on the interfaces between performance measurement systems and current and emergent digitization technologies and their relationships in the context of emerging new information technologies and changing business environment; and
- offer to the practitioners fresh, new applications of digitization to support performance measurement systems in different ways, processes or areas.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:
- The relationships between information systems (e.g. Interorganizational Information Technologies, Internet of Things, Blockchain, Big Data, Industry 4.0, 5G technology) and performance measurement systems
- Potentialities and use of information systems, organizational and inter-organizational, in performance measurement systems for supporting supply chain management
- Use of information systems and digital technologies to improve new supply chain performance: flexibility, collaboration, dynamism, transparency, relational capabilities and innovation performance
- Digitization and implications on emergent sustainable supply chain performance dimensions (economic, environmental, and social).
- Applications of digitization in performance analytics and measurement
- Stakeholder involvement in integrating digitization and performance measurement systems
- Empirical and decision support based business models in integrating information systems and performance measurement systems to manage the complexities and potential paradoxes of these relationships
