... MES features include production tracking and control activities in an organization, making available data on the shop floor and evaluating real-time performance metrics such as the usage of equipment, supply of inventory, and quality status [82]. The usage of MES systems is becoming increasingly common in the field of manufacturing; therefore, they also offer interfaces to a wide range of shop floor systems, they also come with data integration, data analysis, and dashboard generation features [83][84][85]. ...
... Henningsson et al. (2011b) note that the popularity of the current AEO certification is limited, as it is perceived to bring only limited benefits to traders. Within the ITAIDE context, a modularized and extended AEO concept has been proposed in that light (Henningsson et al., 2011a) . In that case, the process to obtain other certificates, for which overlapping information has to be submitted to other governmental agencies, is further streamlined. ...
... Byrne and Power (2014) talked about the unequal distribution of information in supply chain and how it influences the relationship between firms. They found that if a single firm holds the whole information, the relationship between firms is one of compliance rather than collaboration (Schmidt, Otto, & Osterle, 2010). A multi-disciplinary research can provide a better understanding of the role of information sharing, collaboration, trust and information technology in supply chain management (Christopher, 2016). ...

... They can be subdivided into the following four types of software: (Type 1) Process-oriented business systems (often in the form of enterprise resource planning systems such as SAP ERP or customer relationship management systems such as Salesforce) (Davenport 1998), (Type 2) enterprise collaboration systems (such as HCL Connections) (Schubert and Glitsch 2015;Schwade and Schubert 2017;Williams 2011), (Type 3) enterprise content management systems (such as Alfresco) and (Type 4) business process management systems (such as Camunda) (Weske 2012). Historically, business-related information is distributed across different systems, making it difficult to establish an overview of the entirety of availably information (Schmidt et al. 2010). Therefore, it has become necessary to develop integration concepts and applications in order to allow the employee to gain the necessary comprehensive and consistent view of the information. ...
