Towards a model for holistic mapping of supply chains by means of tracking and tracing technologies

  • The usage of tracking and tracing technologies not only enables transparency and visibility of supply chains but also offers far-reaching advantages for companies, such as ensuring product quality or reducing supplier risks. Increasing the amount of shared information supports both internal and external planning processes as well as the stability and resilience of globally operating value chains. This paper aims to differentiate and define the functionalities of tracking and tracing technologies that are frequently used interchangeably in literature. Furthermore, this paper incorporates influencing factors impacting a sequencing of the connected world in Industry4.0 supply chain networks. This includes legal influences, the embedment of supply chain-related standards, and new possibilities of emerging technologies. Finally, the results are summarized in a model for the holistic mapping of supply chains by means of tracking and tracing technologies. The resulting technological solutions that can be derived from the model enable companies to address missing elements in order to enable the holistic mapping of supply chain events as well as the transparent representation of a digital shadow throughout the entire supply chain.
