Description

Quality management (QM) and efficient information sharing among value chain partners have been important IS research topics for decades. Today, IS researchers and practitioners hope to overcome various information inefficiencies in complex supply chains using blockchain approaches. Additionally, future traceability regulations increase companies’ interest in innovative blockchain-based enterprise solutions. We identified several factors that could hinder BC adoption, due to a lack of standards. This paper sheds profound light on organizational and technical aspects of blockchain enterprise applications to support future collaboration initiatives. Furthermore, it develops a terminology that researchers and practitioners can reuse. A case study describes several quality-related objects and events that characterize multiple dimensions and traceability types. Based on these findings, we provide a set of design principles to assist future design features. Finally, this paper provides a holistic orientation and implications for researchers and practitioners moving forwards.
