Managerial Relevant Impact Factors On Inter-Organizational Supply Chain Management - Empirical Findings From Quantitative Research

Emanating from the goals and visions of the so-called Internet of Things and the German economic concept of ‘Industrie 4.0’, virtualization and collaboration among supply chain members are main challenges for creating prospective smart logistic processes. Objects of the real world have to be virtualized to create a so-called physical awareness within the Internet of Things. Therefore, the successful implementation of innovations in supply chain management is necessary to reach this goal. This paper will provide empirical findings regarding managerial relevant impact factors on inter-organizational supply chain management from quantitative research of supply chain members in the German electricity power generation industry. Keywords- Supply Chain Management, Supply Chain Integration, Supply Chain Visibility, Innovation, Internet Of Things.
