CALL FOR PAPERS: Production Planning & Control- Special Issue on Information Technology (IT)-enabled Supply Chain Management:  Co-Creating and Capturing Business Value from IT

Special issue scope

The importance of supply chain management (SCM) to competitive advantage and firm performance is widely accepted. Numerous studies have shown that the level of integration of inter- and intra-organizational processes and information systems is expected to play an increasingly important enabling role in SCM. The advent of new concepts (e.g., green supply chain, ‘Big data’, Web 2.0) and technologies (e.g., Radio Frequency Identification (RFID), Bluetooth, Enterprise Resource Planning II (ERP II)) is expected to accelerate greater levels of seamless integration and reduced duplication of effort. For example, the combination of intelligent products and services enabled by RFID with legacy information communication technologies will allow greater visibility of products and services to supply chain members.  In turn, these technologies offer greater opportunities for more agile and efficient supply chain activities.

Information technology-enabled SCM creates greater pressures for partners to co-create value and support not only their own activities in relation to those products and services, but also the integration of upstream and downstream core business processes and inter- and intra-organizational information systems. Web 2.0 tools such as Facebook and Twitter are radically transforming traditional firm processes and the co-creation of value.  In this context, collaboration between the supply chain stakeholders to co-create and capture value from ITs for economic growth and sustainability becomes not only a prerequisite, but also a major challenge.  While early studies agree that co-creation of business value can be enhanced through emerging concepts and technologies, the early adopters and scholarly literature have yet to answer the question on how firms share this newly created business value among key supply chain stakeholders. 

This special issue aims to invite scholars and practitioners to look at how firms co-create and capture business value from new concepts at the supply chain level of analysis. Research that investigates the implications of IT-enabled SCM for practices and management strategies is highly encouraged. 

More precisely, this special issue seeks articles based on field-studies, in-depth or longitudinal case studies and pilot studies that provide insights from successful applications of these concepts and frameworks development to enhance the contribution of SCM to firm performance. 

Suggested topics include, but are not limited to:
•	Application of IT-enabled supply chain management to operations optimization at the dyad and/or extended supply chain levels.
•	In-depth and longitudinal case studies, pilot studies on the implementation of new concepts and technologies for value co-creation at the dyad and/or extended supply chain levels.
•	Governance structures and practices facilitating the co-creation and capture of business value from new concepts and technologies at the dyad and/or extended supply chain levels.
•	Insights from enabling innovative electronic business models using new concepts and technologies  in various sectors (e.g., healthcare, retail, and manufacturing).
