IS-Enabled Supply Chain Agility

Chapter

Abstract

The chapter gives an extensive review of the current research on industry 4.0, supply chain agility, IS integration. It also investigates the role of IS in supply chain agility. The findings and results reported in the relevant research streams are discussed in the following three aspects: (i) IS integration, including the technical development and the theory of integration process; (ii) supply chain management, specifically agility, including the theoretical background and the approaches taken to achieve agility; and (iii) the actual IS application and issues in supply chain management from real world.

Keywords

Supply chain management (SCM) Supply chain agility IS integration
