The fast development of digitally supported working practices has had a significant impact on the performance of all sectors of the supply chain in recent years, and this trend will continue in the future. Digitalisation has a growing potential to support Strategic and Operational Management of Supply Chain processes, which enables to analyze the performance of each member of Supply Chain and plan new investments. The role of HEI-s is to develop the digitalisation competencies in today's students and tomorrows company managers accordingly to the future needs of the business sector.

It is also extremely important to provide the enterprise managers and key specialists with the innovative possibilities for on-line contact-free real-time management of their physical business facilities. To
achieve this target, it is vital to improve the existing curricula
formal, non-formal learning and in-service training processes of Supply
Chain management towards digitalisation.
The redesigned curriculums
improve the readiness of graduates to work in a new digitally supported
operational environment of Supply Chain. The project vision is that the graduates
will become the drivers of the digitalisation in the companies, which
can be achieved by the teaching of stationary students (formal
learning), updating the digitalisation knowledge of professionals
already working in the companies (non-formal learning) by providing the
curriculums for current degree programme students, but also in-service
training to the business representatives who wants to update his /her
knowledge. It is necessary to achieve compliance of learning outcomes
of curricula of higher professional education with expectations of
the labour market and students on the way to the Digital Supply Chain
era. TTK, VMU and RTA have developed a mixed study environment for
selected part of Supply Chain (including Purchase/ Procurement,
Manufacturing/Operations Management and Logistics/Transportation
topics). The prepared e-learning materials enhance the conventional
classroom study process and support the fully online study. The
environment enables flexible mobility both for instructors and students.
DIGSCM 4.0 project started from the desk research of work processes in
the areas of retail trade and procurement, logistics and manufacturing,
which are directly related to the developed Digital Supply Chain
Management 4.0 module. This research focus on the implications of
digitalization, AI (Artificial Intelligence) and 4IR (Fourth Industrial
Revolution) for the work processes (tasks), as well as implications of these changes to the competence needs and qualifications.
implementation of the above-mentioned activities has to be carried out
in the global work market internationally by member states. A national
approach will not answer the needs and will not provide benchmarking
of the new operating environment for the Supply Chain 4.0 sector of the
EU. In order to cover the most important competencies of Supply Chain
4.0 the partners from the following countries are involved:
coordinator TTK University of Applied Science (TTK) has expertise in
the digitalisation of purchase and procurement activities and the
availability of Industry 4.0 and Logistics 4.0 labs.
partner REZEKNES TEHNOLOGIJU AKADEMIJA (RTA) has the know-how and
practical experience in the manufacturing processes digitalisation.
partner Vytautas Magnus University (VMU) will bring in the expertise in
work processes research, focused on digitalisation and knowhow of
Logistics 4.0 environment.
