Industry 4.0 is a phenomenon in which emerging technologies of the physical, digital and biological worlds converge altogether to revolutionize the organization of value chains globally, disrupting business models, reshaping production, distribution and consumption (Schwab, 2016[1]).


In this context, many opportunities for advancing business exist, particularly in Operations, Logistics and Supply Chain Management where a digital transformation is undergoing fast. For many, this is just a business hype, but for diverse companies, this is a reality.


This special issue is dedicated to theoretical and applied works in this field. Topics may include, but are not limited to:


  • Adoption of emerging technologies and Smart Devices (e.g., Big Data, IoT, Additive Manufacturing, Cobots, Autonomous Vehicles, Virtual and Extended Reality, Digital Twins etc.) and their impact on business and supply chains
  • Emerging new business models (e.g. servicitization, social manufacturing, etc.)
  • Humans at the heart of the digital transformation
  • Education and Skills
  • Enterprise and Supply Chain Strategy
  • Integration, Synchronization, Cooperation, Collaboration
  • Visibility, Transparency and Real-time Management
  • Manufacturing and Supply Chain Analytics
  • Product Innovation Platforms
  • Modularization and Flexibility
