Digitalized – Connected – Integrated – Smart – Automated: Supply Chains 4.0

Which strategies are best to tackle supply chain challenges caused by various global imbalances and amplified by measures meant to tackle the pandemic? Are supply chains a part of the problem or a part of the solution? How can digitalisation  and new technologies in general help to guarantee for all supplies to be on-time?

No doubt: Intelligent supply chains create major values in the 4.0 world. Technological trends like AI, IoT, AR, 3D printing or Blockchain just started to re-shape supply chain strategies in many ways. Now is the right point in time to accelerate the transformation. The convergence of physical and digital processes enabled by IoT and AI creates a transformation from linear supply chains to connected, intelligent, scalable, adaptable and fast Digital Supply Networks (DSNs), the latter being more efficient and profitable. Blockchain technology has a lot of potential to foster trust and transparency in complex and partly automated business relationships. New and lean 4.0 manufacturing technologies will lead to more de-centralisation and regionalisation of logistics. To make this transformation a success physical data and relationships need to be mirrored in a Digital Twin of the supply chains.
