Blockchain for Supply Chain Traceability: Business Requirements and Critical Success Factors

  title={Blockchain for Supply Chain Traceability: Business Requirements and Critical Success Factors},
  author={Gabriella M. Hastig and ManMohan S. Sodhi},
  journal={Production and Operations Management},
We seek to guide operations management (OM) research on the implementation of supply chain traceability systems by identifying business requirements and the factors critical to successful implementation. We first motivate the need for implementing traceability systems in two very different industries – cobalt mining and pharmaceuticals – and present business requirements and critical success factors for implementation. Next, we describe how we carried out thematic analysis of practitioner and…
