Shipbuilding Supply Chain 4.0

The supply chain is currently taking on a very important role in organizations seeking
to improve the competitiveness and profitability of the company. Its transversal character mainly places it in an unbeatable position to achieve this role. This article, through a study of each of the key enabling technologies of Industry 4.0, aims to obtain a general overview of the current state of the art in shipbuilding adapted to these technologies. To do so, a systematic review of what the scientific community says is carried out, dividing each of the technologies into di erent categories. In addition, the global vision of countries interested in each of the enabling technologies is also studied. Both studies present a general vision to the companies of the concerns of the scientific community, thus encouraging research on the subject that is focused on the sustainability of the
shipbuilding supply chain.

sustainability supply chain shipbuilding key enabling technologies industry 4.0

1. Introduction
The existing flow of materials and information within an organization is defined as Supply Chain and it goes from the suppliers of raw materials to the consumer of the final product [1]. In addition, the Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals also assigns it the role of integrator between all actors involved. The evolution of the Supply Chain has reached the point where it is considered a strategic concept within the business model of companies [2]. This strategic tool with a multidisciplinary and transversal character, affects the three strategic levels that are distinguished in the organizations. The first strategic level considers where the organization is framed and the market in which it competes. The second strategic level defines how it will compete and the functional strategy as put into practice within each area that makes up the company [3]. 
Based on this transversality, which is assigned to the Supply Chain, the models that can be most interesting to follow are studied. The techniques and practices provided by Lean Manufacturing are fully applicable to the Supply Chain as it is considered a network of small businesses that even become a network of small independent companies that must be coordinated in the best possible way. A Lean Supply Chain develops collaborative relationships based on mutual trust between suppliers, develops programs to be able to give them technical support, establishes open door policies and promotes participation from the first stages working as a team in the search for solutions [4].
The agile contribution to the Supply Chain allows it to respond to the continuous changes that exist in the market by establishing new competencies. It is based on a dynamic structure management providing information visibility [5]. There is also the supply chain defined as a combination of both paradigms known as leagile [6]. Most studies focus on studying the supply chain from a financial risk aspect, which has led to new studies from a social perspective, hence creating a new model [7]. In addition, it is known at the outset how many interruptions a Supply Chain will be subjected to, and knowing this, the most appropriate approach would be to try to prevent and properly manage the changes in status that the supply chain may be subjected to. Resilience offers this contribution [8]. 
Special mention is made of sustainability. Sustainability, green, there are different terms that refer to this concept but although there are nuances, the objective is the same. It must be understood that the Sustainable Supply Chain contemplates the creation of economic, environmental and social considerations. In other words, integrating the environment into the management of the Supply Chain [9]. 
For the shipbuilding sector, sustainability has a very important weight. To be able to integrate the environmental dimension in all the operations carried out within a shipyard has been a matter of vital importance in the last years. Therefore, one of the advantages of such integration in the Supply Chain would give the company a certain competitive advantage, for example with regard to improving energy efficiency [10,11].
Considering also that, the efforts lately are directed to its adaptation to the requirements marked by the Industry 4.0 not to be left behind in the market being this the only way to survive in a so competitive market in a sector. That is why it is proposed to improve management by using a tool as useful in this sense as the systematic review for companies. For companies, used to using business articles, the contribution provided by a scientific study is beneficial for decision making [12].
The origin of the term Industry 4.0 is located in Germany where Kagermann, Lukas and Wahlster base their industrialization proposal on nine high technologies in addition to establishing strategies for their implementation, which was later known as Key Enabling Technologies (KETs) [13,14]. Some authors have varied these technologies, adapting them as best suits their sector. In the shipbuilding, there have been few contributions and differences with respect to overall [15]. In our study, those described in a conceptual model developed specifically for shipbuilding will be considered [16]. These studies have even allowed defining an index that allows evaluating the state of maturity in the implantation in the company [17]. These technologies will affect the development of new products and services, the business models carried out by organizations and Supply Chain, creating competitive advantage and cost reduction. In order to generate benefits for all stakeholders, Supply Chain 4.0 could define itself as the transformation of the traditional supply chain using enabling technologies [18–20]. This is not the only new dimension of Supply Chain 4.0, it must also be supported by other new dimensions such as those related to management and capacity supports, process performance requirements and strategic results. This makes the concept of Supply Chain 4.0 an evolution of the traditional concept which, despite being in its initial period, is in the process of development [18]. This development of Supply Chain 4.0 can be considered as a transformation that includes the incorporation of technologies in addition to the human and environmental dimensions, placing sustainability at the centre of improving the company [19]. Furthermore, Industry 4.0 itself helps industries to incorporate actions for the protection and control of the environment converting supply chains into Sustainable Supply Chains 4.0. The purpose of these sustainable supply chains 4.0 is to plan and project the supply chain itself taking into account environmental and social concerns besides profits [20]. 
Therefore, this study aims to give an overview of the state of the art in shipbuilding adaptation for Industry 4.0. Firstly, it provides an analysis of the interest of countries around the world in key enabling technologies for industry 4.0. Secondly, it provides a review of studies focusing on making the supply chain sustainable by trying to encourage greater concern about this issue.

2. Materials and Methods 
In order to carry out the proposed study, the article aims to follow a systematic review. This systematic review procedure is a tool for both advanced management scholarships and studies carried out in organizations that wish to improve their management practice. In this way, the management accomplished by companies becomes enriched by the contribution of the scientific community that goes beyond those consulted by companies, usually, journals more focused on business. This enrichment provides a clear, scientific and replicable process, it does not provide answers, it provides what is known and not known about the question –both equally important-. The five steps of the systematic review are planning the review, locating studies, assessing contributions, analyzing and synthesizing information, and reporting evidence. These steps will allow getting to know the state of the art of the studied proposal. [12]. 
There are different possibilities to frame a systematic review as PICO (Patient, Intervention, Comparison, Outcomes), SPICE (Stakeholder, Phenomenon of Interest Comparison Evaluation) and CIMO (Context, Intervention, Mechanism, Outcomes). The CIMO logic (Context, Intervention, Mechanism, Results) is adopted to developing the set of proposition of the research sections as being appropriate to the field of management [21]. Where we could define: Context: Shipbuilding, Intervention: Each of the KETs, Mechanisms: Categories into which the impact on the supply chain has been divided, Outcomes: effects of these interventions. Figure 1 shows the methodology followed in the article based on the reviewed literature for the systematic review [12,22].
During the preparation of the review, the need for it is identified through proposed research questions, not answered by previous studies. Subsequently, the search strategy is defined, the selection criteria for data extraction and quality assessment are established. The checklist of Preferred Information Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses (PRISMA) [22] is used to provide for the accuracy of the review process.

Regarding the search strategy, different databases were evaluated. Starting by carrying out the search with the same argument in several databases and evaluating the answers obtained in each of them until reaching the conclusion that the Scopus database offers a greater number of contributions including those provided by the rest of the databases and the possibility of classification with different criteria including impact criteria [23]. No a priori exclusion criteria are made with respect to the time horizon of the publications since the search arguments already mark recent studies. The established search arguments allow the intersection of Marine AND each of the twelve industry 4.0 enabling technologies for the shipbuilding sector [16]. The term shipbuilding was logically the first search argument although a number of items were not generated that would allow it to be considered an appropriate indicator. Therefore, "Shipbuilding" was not considered as a search argument, it was preferable to establish exclusion criteria, extending the search term to "Marine" given in this extension, included the publications generated with Shipbuilding.
It is decided that only articles from peer-reviewed journals will be accepted, with the inclusion of a book chapter being an exception. It is the co-authors who decide whether publications are accepted or not, and they debate until agreement is reached. Most of the indexed journals used, have a high impact factor, between the first two quartiles, considered through the Journal Citation Report (JCR), an appropriate tool for the area in which the study is framed.
Each of the elements studied is collected to be classified according to the context, the intervention and the mechanism and result relationship. In this way, categories are established that allow the content of each topic to be analysed (see Appendix A). In addition, it was decided to carry out a study that would allow us to know which countries are studying which technology that would allow us to identify the development of each technology at a global level.
3. Results
As a first contact and applying the search strategy limited to the "Supply Chain" AND each of the twelve enabling technologies with their most common nomenclatures shown in Figure 2 as "Search String 1", 680 publications are obtained. However, when the term "Marine" is included in the search string, the number of publications decreases considerably to the number of 284 publications shown in Figure 2 as "Search String 2", which we will study next.

The second search string was therefore the term "Marine" with each of the KET's and filtering with the term "Shipbuilding". "Supply Chain" being understood as a transversal and driving factor of the shipbuilding industry. At this point it can be stated that many of the publications related to shipbuilding, are made associated to the object of research directly without any relation with the term shipbuilding.

Figure 2. Search String Comparison
3.1. An overview of the results
Regarding the country study, Figure 3 shows the distribution of each of the publications grouped by technology. As can be seen, the trend is that these technologies are being studied globally in a general way, however, it is possible to make a breakdown of this. 
The United States is the only country with publications on all enabling technologies, with the highest number on additive manufacturing (9/50). China shows more interest in simulation (15/43) followed by Big Data (7/43). This behavior is the same for South Korea (Simulation: 14/22, Big Data: 3/22). Both have no publications are found in Cybersecurity, Horizontal and Vertical Integration Systems or Internet of Things. In the same way England and Japan also show the highest number of publications in simulation, however Norway does it in Big Data and Spain in Artificial Intelligence. India, Singapore and Canada are also opting for additive manufacturing along with Italy while France is doing so in augmented reality. The rest of the contributing countries present few publications in each of the technologies, highlighting the Netherlands that present 4/5 in simulation and on the other hand the Internet of things is only of interest to Croatia outside of the countries with the highest number of publications.

Figure 3. Worldwide Distribution of Technology Studies
Figure 4 shows the technologies studied by the different countries, as well as the number of publications provided. As stated above, the United States is the only country that studies all the technologies, being also the one with the highest number of publications. Of the 44 countries that make up the study, 18 focus on a single technology. Most of the studies deal with simulation. However, 11 of these countries have a different interest in technologies such as Cloud Computing, Automated Guided Vehicles, Augmented Reality or Autonomous Robots.

3.2. Analysis of the key enabling technologies
In order to carry out our study and as previously indicated in the methodology, the values of the surveys to be confronted are divided into two groups, on the one hand to experts of the sector, and on the other hand to the scientific community. For this second group, using the scientific database, asking to provide with the publications up to the moment of each of the KET's associated to the shipbuilding supply chain. 
Additive manufacturing has been one of the most disruptive manufacturing technologies provided in the context of Industry 4.0. Additive manufacturing could be classified according to the material used, the way it is provided and the method used to induce consolidation. Based on this, the largest number of published papers are in the general technology group. Firstly, the application of technology for metal [24], for composite materials [25]  and the simulation of processes for marine components with the intention of inserting the simulation of additive manufacturing in the large scale shipbuilding environment [26]. Also included are studies on how additive manufacturing benefits the shipbuilding supply chain [27]. Other studies focus on the manufacture of parts using direct laser forming technique for the blades of a turbine or X-band a horn with 3D printing [28] and even the refurbishment of parts outlining the benefits of laser cladding technology for in-situ marine crankshaft repairs [29]. There also articles that study the improvement of the properties of manufactured parts, on the elasticity of naval steels [30] on corrosion [31] even going as far as redesigning them for application in additive manufacturing [32].
Big Data and Analytics enables real-time decision making through stored data and its evaluation. Key to promoting operational excellence by adding value to the company. Applied to shipbuilding, publications can be grouped into four groups. In the first group are those aimed at improving processes and systems. One of the most important system improved are navigation systems, where  finding solutions based on ship performance, monitoring and navigation data that improve navigation strategies [33]. Also there are processes improved focused to correlate the sound of the arc with the quality of the welding [34] or studying how the adoption of Big Data Analytics increases the production and productivity of the company, and helps it to have more control of its processes [35]. The second group is focused on its potential application motivated by growing concern about climate change [36] and to analyze the optimization of energy consumption through the transfer of energy that exists in the hull, the propeller and the main engine coming to demonstrate the efficiency reduction of energy consumption and CO2 emissions [37]. The third group focuses on the improvement of intelligent systems as is the case of a tool to analyze data obtained through IoT [38]. Moreover, other publications show guidance for implementation [39] and sector analysis [40].
Cloud Computing improves reaction times and allows to improve production systems through data based services. There are three different groups, one of which aims to improve ship behaviour in service analyzing stress, fatigue, fracture [41], their maintenance [42] and on improving the safety of ship operations developing a method of accident analysis with a bridge simulator [43]. The second group focuses on improving data management improving the detection, identification and ship tracking [44] and their application on ship routing [45]. The third one concerns environmental efficiency through marine engine failure detection to reduce marine pollution [46] and sustainable development [47].
The general application of Augmented Reality is to provide workers with information to improve decision-making and work procedures in real time. Applied to shipbuilding, three groups can be distinguished, the first one based on a general assessment of the technology applying augmented reality techniques for learning and daily management of the marine hydraulic system [48], of its impact on the sector considering how it can be applied in order to provide useful and attractive interfaces that allow workers to obtain information about their tasks and to interact with certain elements around them [49] and as a training tool [50]. A second group focuses on application to simulated naval environments [51], specifically in the fields of navigation alleviating cognitive load problems for ships [52], safety [53] and maintenance work [51]. A last group aims at improving the efficiency of systems such as the development of a methodology to match images to different fields of view of the camera and display device by means of coordinate conversion [54].
Autonomous and collaborative robots are born with the intention of tackling complex tasks and work as a team with the humans. The main activity in shipbuilding is automated welding describing the welding robots used in the prefabrication of sub-assemblies in production lines as well as a new high-speed welding process that uses two wires in the welding torch, allowing productivity to be at least doubled [55], in this case rail running mobile welding robot for the double hull ship structure [56] can be considered one of the complex tasks mentioned. In addition, there are cleaning and inspection tasks solving the huge environmental and financial problem for the marine industry of marine growth on ships [57] and those corresponding to dimensional control in particular the difficulty of measuring marine propellers [58]. The improvement of systems efficiency through simulation is again present in this technology [59], as well as the study of the technology from a general perspective.  
Regarding to autonomous vehicles, it could be divided into two initial categories, one focused on improving the systems and the other on the applications derived from their use. In the first group, a distinction is made between surface vehicles. In this case, studying the propulsion topologies of ships in mechanical, electrical and hybrid, propulsion and energy supply systems and demonstrating that hybrid architectures with advanced control strategies can reduce fuel consumption and emissions, improve noise, maintainability, manoeuvrability and comfort [60] and underwater vehicles, integrating the obstacle detection and analysis capabilities  [61].  Within the applications of their use, there are autonomous vehicles dedicated to Inspection-Maintenance-Repair, so they are called IMR vehicles. Therefore, their use can be more focused on inspection incorporating the Smart Loop Management System (STMS)[62], others on maintenance [63] and on repair which allows engineers and marine operators to assess the risks associated with certain tasks, such as pipeline repair or the installation of hoses, in real time using ROV (Remotely Operated Vehicle) simulation technology.  A very useful system to give a quick response [64].
The Blockchain technology allows the division into three groups, one formed by applications of its use in the sector saving the industry from intermediaries, and rebuilding all business models [65]. A second group is made up of publications aimed at strengthening security where it is stated that the Blockchain technology allows to extract the information of the contract directly, guaranteeing the reliability of the system, it also guarantees its authenticity and security building a more ecological environment [66]. The last group is devoted to the search for energy efficiency studied from the perspective of cryptocurrences, due to the algorithms used developing an increase of energy consumption, being necessary to develop new algorithms [67].
With respect to the category of horizontal and vertical integration systems, the majority of publications address vertical integration. These publications aimed at the development of new products such as the developments carried out for the aero-derivative gas turbine [68]. Also it is used as an indicator of productivity in the sector developing strategies that allow it to improve costs, quality indices, flexibility and delivery time, among others [69], and are valued as an alternative in management by supporting efforts aligned with the supply chain and commercial strategy [70]. Other publications consider it to be positive compared to the transfer of information to foreign shipyards in such a positive way in an increasingly globalized world [71] and compare it to the alternatives of outsourcing [72]. 
The groups in which we divide Cybersecurity technology are focused on reducing environmental risks, so essential today that optical communications and quantum encryption are included to ensure the operations of the safest ships and to guarantee the safety of the oceans [73]. A second group studies the safety of the systems on- board by developing virtual laboratories to characterize and identify security events in maritime control systems [74]. Of course, there is a group aimed at supporting other technologies as is the case with IoT. Considering that as more devices are brought online, safety must be a major concern for users and operators. It is established that embedded applications should be built on a secure platform that can extend security features to the applications it houses [75]. And a group aimed at general considerations of the implementation of the same [76].
Artificial intelligence is present in different aspects in the shipbuilding sector although it was foreseeable that most of the publications would be on the development of improvements to navigation and control systems as algorithms that help route planning to avoid ship collisions [77]. In general, the applications that the use of the technology could have in the sector from the design stages by studying the main dimensions, hull shape selection, stability or propulsion, through the use of artificial neural networks [78]. It also has a group of publications focused on decision support [79], energy efficiency and even process optimization [80] such as the formation of certain parts of the hull by heating or mechanical forming by developing an automatic line heat forming process based on the intensive application of numerical simulation and artificial intelligence [81].
The Industrial Internet of Things (IoT) that allows field devices to communicating with each other and with the control systems with real-time responses establishes three groups. The first group includes the linkage it has with other technologies as explained above with Cybersecurity [82]. The second group includes the use of technology to support the design stage of vessels allowing for increased performance and value of the ship although there are challenges to be considered in ensuring that relevant, accurate and reliable data are articulated to stakeholders [83]. The third group is composed of publications that reflect the integration of processes and systems [84].
Within Simulation, we distinguish depending on the type in, simulation by finite elements, simulation of discrete events, SPH, CFD. In the six established groups, we find studies with the different types of simulation previously identified. The first group contains the new propulsion systems in which electronic propulsion systems are established [85] or on the effects that the hydrodynamic efficiency of the propellers has [86]. Both are physical simulations. The second group studies the ship structure and services with respect to crack propagation behaviour [87] or residual stress analysis [88], finite element simulations. There are publications focused on spill prevention [89] and risk analysis due to high pressure of fuel gas in tanks [90]. The third group is dedicated to welding which is so important in the shipbuilding sector [91], both from the perspective of different positions [92] and deformations in assembly [93].
The following group [94] covers the study of navigation systems and a fifth group [95] covers the supply chain. The sixth group includes planning [96], production control [97] and optimisation [98]. Finally, an important number of publications are dedicated to the previous stages of shipbuilding such as ship design as a tool for optimization [99] and analysis [100].
3.3. Evaluation of the key enabling technologies according to some basic categories
From the twelve industry 4.0 enabling technologies specific to the shipbuilding sector, the categories that are common to most of them are identified. One of the common categories focuses on the general study of technology in its application to the sector (66 studies). Another common approach with a larger number of articles focuses on the application of systems improvement and efficiency, especially for navigation systems (66 studies). Another category discussed was dedicated to design, including within this category both tasks aimed at ship design and the design of new related products (64 studies). and the other grouping subjects ranging from productivity, production control, decision support, process optimisation and the supply chain (16 studies). There is a specific category dedicated to one of the most relevant activities in the sector as it is the welding distributed in only two technologies: Autonomous Robots and Simulation. (12 studies). This leaves other non-common categories with less than 10 studies (44 studies). 
Finally, it is followed by two categories with the same number of studies, one dedicated to studying the effects on energy efficiency and environmental sustainability (16 studies). This is the indicator offered by the study of the trend followed by the scientific community in its approach to supply chain sustainability. It can be seen that less than 6% of publications are of concern to researchers in the sector. 
Not all KET's address the category of environment, called Energy Efficiency and Environmental Sustainability. Only five of the twelve KET's deal with studies related to Sustainability. The weight falls on Big Data Analytics with a total of 9 of the 16 articles counted, the rest being distributed among Cloud Computing, Blockchain, Cybersecurity and Artificial Intelligence. It is very striking that the rest of the technologies do not present any interest in this field when it should concern all technologies completely for being one of the key points of the 4.0 industry. Figure 5 shows the seven categories addressed by each KET. 
Figure 5. KETs' concerns distributed in the six basic categories
This therefore highlights the lack of integration of the environment into supply chain management, i.e. the economic, environmental and social considerations necessary for the understanding of a Sustainable Supply Chain are not taken into account. There is still a long way to go to implement sustainable practices and techniques for a sector for which it carries considerable weight, such as Shipbuilding. Information that should be taken into account both by the interested scientific community and by the companies of the sector, which besides being an imperative need, could be reversed as a competitive advantage.
4. Conclusions
The supply chain has been considered today as a strategic tool because of its transversality, affecting all levels within an organization. Using it also as a trainer to make the company more sustainable, is one of the tasks that the study has carried out. Sustainability should be studied as a basic requirement in all sectors but it is more important for the shipbuilding industry. Such sustainability, carried out through the Supply Chain, will make the techniques and practices used applicable to different companies, thus contributing to extend an appropriate and extensible sustainability network. Industry 4.0 brings to the industry the need to implement new technologies that allows the industry to be updated improving sustainability and benefits. This transformation also affects the Supply Chain in which, in addition to using new technologies, it considers the human and environmental dimensions. This is why the supply chain is now considered Sustainable Supply Chain 4.0.
Firstly, the enabling technologies of the industry 4.0 adapted to the shipbuilding sector have been studied. Studies of each one of them belonging to the sector have been located and have been grouped by categories, giving a clear vision of which technologies are being studied for the longest time and which, it could be interpreted, as the sector has not yet shown enough interest. Additionally, it has been studied at a global level, which countries are researching these technologies and which are not, providing a clear vision of the major powers such as the United States and Asia, which are choosing to advance in technologies such as Additive Manufacturing and Simulation, which are experiencing a peak.
The proposed categories have been measured in the literature and could serve as a starting point to study the implementation of Supply Chain model practices in shipbuilding. However, the approach of the research method carried out, allows to have a general vision of what the scientific community is studying and which are the reference places to be available to the companies that decide to consult and improve their practices. One of the proposed categories is related to the environment, sustainability and energy efficiency as a key point for the advancement of technologies and coincides with one of the lines of interest of the industry 4.0. However, it has been detected that not all KETs show concern in their research for this key category in which one should emphasize above all, the Big Data Analysis which presents studies focused on climate change and emissions reductions. Cloud Computing follows with concern on the subject, presenting articles focused on engine failure detection to reduce marine pollution and to reduce energy costs. Blockchain also shows interest in developing new algorithms that take into account this dimension. Cybersecurity contemplates the security of ships, thus guaranteeing the oceans in the same way that Artificial Intelligence does. 
With regard to Simulation technology, is important to add that although no direct reference is made, its indirect involvement with sustainability should be acknowledged. Moreover, it should also be noted that additive manufacturing does not have any articles either, despite the fact that it is considered to be a clean technology in its own right, it is an intrinsic property of the technology itself. However, this means that there is not enough attention to the subject and companies should provide the means to expand research in this area, so that they can implement sustainable policies at all levels, taking advantage of the transversality offered by the supply chain.
