Blockchain in Operations and Supply Chain Management

Blockchain technology (BCT) has emerged as an enabling technology that can provide traceability, provenance and transparency in business operations, across complex global supply chain ecosystems, where leanness, agility, and speed are crucial, in addition to achieving social sustainability. It is considered one of the most disruptive technologies representing decentralised environment for transactions, self-executing digital contracts (smart contracts) and intelligent asset management over the Internet, providing a single-view to the entities (users) involved in the transaction. Therefore, the key characteristics of BCT will significantly impact the organisational governance, supply-chain relationships, operations strategy, digital transformation pathway and existing supply-chain business models. BCT when integrated with other technologies such as the Internet of Things, big data analytics, and artificial intelligence, will help to increase the efficiency of supply chain through agile data-driven decision-making based on high quality data (stored in Blockchain) and further facilitating supply chain transparency that will also afford product traceability, authenticity and legitimacy, and enhance sub-supplier transparency that will alleviate social sustainability problem in multi-tier supply networks.
Despite the potential of BCT for the field of Operations and Supply Chain Management (OSCM), it has thus far received extremely limited attention in the OSCM literature, except for a few studies reporting a systematic review of literature reflecting on the characteristics of the technology, potential drivers in a business environment and technical challenges to deploy it. However, empirical evidence and research on developing new models and contemporary tools to assess several elements related to the technology, including and not limited to, performance, organisational readiness, risk assessment, operations strategy, integration with existing ERP systems and supply chain business models, will facilitate deeper understanding of the benefits offered by the technology that in-turn will help managers and relevant decision-makers to systematically assess the impact of BCT on their respective organisation and supply chain model. Furthermore, research into application of BCT within OSCM literature will require examining the relevance of existing theories and either developing new theories or extending existing theories that will facilitate better understanding of this contemporary phenomenon and its impact on supply chain relationships, operations strategy, workforce management, business partnerships, value creation, social legislations and business transparency.
For this special issue, we expect original research papers reporting empirical evidence, models and tools, and developing new theories contributing to the application of BCT in OSCM.
The main topics of interest include but are not limited to:
- Impact of BCT on supply chain relationships
- BCT and trust in OSCM
- Blockchain adoption and risk assessment
- Blockchain adoption and performance measurement
- Blockchain and supply chain sustainability
- Blockchain and social sustainability
- Blockchain and OSCM theories
- Blockchain and operations strategy
- Blockchain and supply chain intelligence
- Blockchain readiness models and empirical assessment
- Blockchain analytics for business operations
- Blockchain and data-driven decision making
- Smart contracts in OSCM – feasibility , use-cases and business performance
- Smart contract rules and governance
- Blockchain – managerial/business perspectives
- New business/supply chain models using BCT
- Blockchain – consumer perspectives
- Blockchain and sustainability development goals in OSCM

NAPW has long been established as a major biennial conference on the topics of productivity, eciency and performance analysis. Following the successful NAPW X, we expect a large and diverse body of participants to attend NAPW XI in Miami. This year’s theme is especially important to the Miami Business School, Sustainable Productivity. Sustainable productivity encapsulates enduring growth and process improvements, a healthy workforce and surrounding operational environment, a regular ow of new ideas and innovations, and an unwavering optimism about the direction of the rm. The school recently launched the only STEM certied Masters in Sustainable Business and the Miami Business School is the only academic building in the state of Florida to have achieved LEED Gold certication. Submission for presentation on all areas related to the measurement, assessment and character of sustainable productivity are invited. Submissions on the theory and application of economics, econometrics, statistics, anagement science and operational research related to problems in the areas of productivity and efficiency measurement more broadly are highly encouraged. Our aim is to have a conference program that features all popular techniques and methodologies within the eld, including stochastic frontier analysis and data envelopment analysis. We also welcome papers on broader issues related to measuring, understanding, incentivizing and improving the productivity and performance of rms, public services, and industries.
On behalf of the scientic committee, we look forward to welcoming all participants of NAPW XI to Miami this upcoming June.
