Title of the paper :
Modeling Critical Success Factors of Traceability for Efficient Food Logistics System

Abstract :

Economic growth of any country depends upon whether it can provide food safety to its citizens. Despite food’s vital role in the growth, Emerging economies, such as BRICS, face a number of challenges in their food industries. The most attention seeking challenge is ensuring security and safety of food commodities, an important area in the management of food supply chain (FSC). The problem is associated with the limited usage of resources for monitoring the entire system, including monitoring the quality of product and keeping track of availability and accessibility of food products for the end-consumers. One of the concepts that suits best to resolve this issue is traceability. Currently, changing lifestyle, priorities and increasing smartness of people have made consumers more aware and conscious about everything they consume. It is thus important to have an effective and efficient food traceability system (FTS) in place for supplying safe and quality food to satisfy consumers. This paper deals with the identification of various critical success factors (CSFs), impacting food traceability implementation in emerging economies associated with BRICS countries. Also, it involves the analysis of the relationships within these CSFs in the form of a hierarchy, using a novel approach called Total Interpretive Structural Modeling (TISM). Out of all identified factors, Government Regulation has the maximum capability to drive rest of the factors, leaving consumer satisfaction at the top.


Keywords: Food Security and Safety; Food Traceability System (FTS); Food Supply Chain Management (FSCM), Total Interpretive Structural Modelling (TISM); Critical Success Factors (CSFs).

Title of the paper :
Le rôle de la veille stratégique sur le processus d’innovation dans les activités de services : application au champ non médical en milieu hospitalier, le cas

Abstract :

If researchers have investigated the service innovation process for the last twenty years, one cannot say the same about the link between strategic watch and the innovation process. We will focus our attention on this link. In this paper, we will analyze a case study (no medical innovation in the hospital sector) through our model. It confirms how many people with various responsibilities are involved in the innovation process, and search for information, data and knowledge to participate.
