Special Issue Call for Papers

Technology is advancing overtime and sizes of data sets generated are considered big and complex. The current database management tools and methods used to process data are inadequate; this paves way for big data analytics evolution and innovation. There is a growing need to develop big data tools and techniques to build capabilities to solve problems better than ever before. In current practices a number of industries are readily leveraging big data to their benefit. Even there are high expectations for big data analytics in supply chain, yet the extant supply chain literature has failed to explore the moderating and mediating linkage of big data due to a lack of volume and variety of data for more informed and timely decisions in supply chain.

In the current practices, data is generally collected to test the theoretical model which we derive after extensive literature review, opinion from experts and experience. This traditional approach has several limitations. Moreover, social media and online data collection and analysis have created opportunities to utilize data for making real-time and more accurate decisions in supply chain management.

The big data analytics architecture in supply chain is characterized by five vertical dimensions or ‘5Vs’ – Volume, Velocity, Variety, Veracity and Value. In the past, due to limitations of data and tools, most of the time researchers have to limit their scope of the study in supply chain. Recently, Fosso Wamba et al. (2015) extended the 3Vs and defined big data as a “holistic approach to manage, process and analyze 5 Vs (i.e., volume, variety, velocity, veracity and value) in order to create actionable insights for sustained value delivery, measuring performance and establishing competitive advantages”. Hence, there is need for revisiting existing theories in supply chain management with data powered by 5Vs.

The aim of this special issue of Computers and Industrial Engineering (CAIE) is to attract manuscripts which are firmly grounded in supply chain theories, using big data and predictive analytics to take the current supply chain theory and practice to the next level of excellence in terms of supporting suitable supply design and operations in the 21st century organizational competitiveness. These deliverables will re-align the supply chain into a more coordinated and integrated network with collaborative, efficient and secure service systems. It includes adaptive tracing in RFID-enables large scale supply chain, assessing risk management and mitigating disaster through GPS tracking, while improving demand driven operations through facility and ware house integration across supply chain by forecasting and planning through bid data integration and coordination.
