Mini-track: Information Technology (IT)-enabled Supply Chain Management: Co-Creating and Capturing Business Value from IT


The preoccupation with supply chain management (SCM) has been present over the last few decades. Numerous studies have pointed to the need to increase the level of integration of inter- and intra-organizational processes and information systems in order to achieve a greater level of seamlessness and reduce duplication efforts and corresponding inefficiencies. The advent of new concepts (e.g., social media, Web 2.0, green supply chain) and technologies (e.g., Radio Frequency Identification (RFID), Bluetooth, Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) II) should accelerate this trend. For example, the combination of intelligent products and intelligent services enabled by RFID with the existing ICTs in supply chains should play a facilitating role – thus allowing greater visibility of products and services to supply chain members –, and in parallel offer more opportunities for quick and efficient supply chain activities. Supply chain members should therefore face greater strain as they will be expected to manage not only their own activities in relation to those products and services, but also the integration of upstream and downstream core business processes and inter- and intra-organizational information systems. In this context, collaboration between the supply chain stakeholders to co-create and capture value from ITs for their economic growth sustainability becomes not only a prerequisite, but also a major challenge. This mini-track aims to look at how to co-create and capture business value from new concepts (e.g., social media, Web 2.0, green supply chain) and technologies (e.g., RFID technology, Bluetooth, ERPII) both at the firm and supply chain levels.

Suggested topics, but are not limited to:

• IT-enabled business analytics at the firm and supply chain levels
• Business process modeling & simulation, business process redesign from new concepts (e.g., social media, Web 2.0, green supply chain) and technologies (e.g., RFID , Bluetooth, ERPII) at the firm and supply chain levels
• Modeling and simulation of the business value of new concepts (e.g., social media, Web 2.0) and technologies (e.g., RFID technology, Bluetooth, ERPII) on quality management
• Modeling and simulation of the costs and risks associated with the deployment of new concepts (e.g., social media, Web 2.0, green supply chain) and technologies (e.g., RFID technology, Bluetooth, ERPII) at firm and supply chain levels
• Modeling and simulation of financial, managerial, leadership, and human resources required for projects of new concepts (e.g., social media, Web 2.0, green supply chain) and technologies (e.g., RFID technology, Bluetooth, ERPII)
• Diffusion, adoption and use of new concepts (e.g., social media, Web 2.0, green supply chain) and technologies (e.g., RFID technology, Bluetooth, ERPII) at firm and supply chain levels
• Case studies on the implementation of new concepts (e.g., social media, Web 2.0, green supply chain) and technologies (e.g., RFID technology, Bluetooth, ERPII) for business value co-creation at the firm and supply chain levels
• Enabling innovative electronic business models using new concepts (e.g., social media, Web 2.0, green supply chain) and technologies (e.g., RFID technology, Bluetooth, ERPII) in various sectors (e.g., healthcare, retail, manufacturing)
