BIG DATA APPLIED TO CYBER-PHYSICAL LOGISTIC SYSTEMS: CONCEPTUAL MODEL AND PERSPECTIVES
Keywords: cyber-physical systems, logistics, big data, business analytics, supply chains
AbstractThe management of supply chains and their subsystems embodies strategic and contemporaneous challenges. The competitiveness of supply chains depends increasingly on their flexibility. Logistics as a supply chain function has to compensate increasing requirements regarding flexibility by means of a higher information density and the employment of innovative techniques for data acquisition and analytics. Indeed, the flow of information that commands the physical flow embodies a critical issue for the management of supply chains. Hence, by means of a theoretical and conceptual approach, this paper aims to propose to research management perspectives and propose a model for the application of innovative techniques for data acquisition and analytics in Cyber-Physical Logistic Systems.
