Abstract [en]

Purpose – The wood construction industry has been described as slow in adapting efficiency-increasingactivities in its operations and supply chain. The industry is still facing challenges related to digitalization, suchas fragmentation, poor traceability and lack of real-time information. This study evaluates the status ofdigitalization in construction supply chains by thematically analyzing the existing literature and mappingresearch trends.Design/methodology/approach – A review of the key literature from 2016 to 2021 was performed. Theresults highlight various technologies and their applications within supply chains and identify research gaps,especially between theoretical frameworks and actual implementation using a scientometric-thematic analysis.Findings – This paper provides a conceptual framework to further aid researchers in exploring the currenttrends in Supply Chain 4.0 and its applications in the wood construction industry compared to other moreadvanced industries. Suggested directions for future research in the wood construction Supply Chain 4.0 areoutlined.Originality/value – The existing literature still lacks a comprehensive review of the potential of a digitalizedsupply chain, especially in the construction industry. This framework is pivotal to continue explaining andobserving the best ways to accelerate and implement Supply Chain 4.0 practices for digitalized supply chainmanagement (SCM) while focusing specifically on the wood construction industry. The literature review resultswill help develop a comprehensive framework for future research direction to create a clearer vision of thecurrent state of digitalization in supply chains and focus on the wood construction supply chain, thus, fullyachieving the benefits of Supply Chain 4.0 in the wood construction industry.
