Abstract

The purpose of the paper is to identify the issues and challenges to employing blockchain technology for different operations context. The paper analyses five cases to identify drivers and barriers to adopting the technology. Our findings suggest that interoperability and platform dependency can limit the wide-scale deployment of the technology. Additionally, trust in rule-based software automation and consensus among supply chain actors can inhibit effective adoption. In summary, the paper finds that care should be taken when applying blockchain, since there are many situations where its implementation is not feasible or not beneficial.
