This research aims to qualitatively explore the readiness of Australian organisations with digitisation of their supply chains.
Business models and supply chains are rapidly evolving given the dynamic environment they are operating in and the technology that enhances their operations. Digitisation is becoming more prevalent in how organisations are responding to this dynamic environment.
Technologies and approaches such as 3D printing, drones, robotics, as well as business intelligence, artificial intelligence and big data are influencing these business models, particularly in the context of the supply chain.
Australia is impacted by the tyranny of distance, having many of its trading partners located far away from the country, with Asia being its closest trading partner.
Little is known about the changing business models in the current supply chain environment and how ‘ready’ organisations are to keep evolving as we go more digital. Furthermore, even less is known about how Australian organisations are evolving their supply chains to engage in a global digital environment.
As such, the objective of this project is to explore the question: “Are Australian firms ready for the evolving digital environment?”
