Supporting Digital Supply Chains by IoT Frameworks: Collaboration, Control, Combination

The purpose of this paper is to introduce a technology-oriented SCM (Supply Chain Management) development methodology, which can be used in the design of IoT (Internet of Things) frameworks especially characterized by supply chain processes. In order to meet DSC (Digital Supply Chain) expectations, two areas are examined in detail during the literature review. Firstly, the current SCM models are studied. Secondly, Industry 4.0 requirements had to be surveyed. As a consequence, challenges and gaps are identified for which we seek the solution during our research. Based on the results, it can be stated that digitization has definitely required an improved technological solution that IoT frameworks can provide. The result is a technology-driven, IoT-based SCM development methodology that serves as a basis for the design of such platforms, which will manage supply chains. To prove the feasibility of the proposed development methodology, the Arrowhead industrial IoT framework is used for validation.
