Abstract: Screening existing literature on Supply Chain Risk Management (SCRM) shows that only sporadic attention is paid on real data driven SCRM. Most tools and approaches lead to an expert knowledge based SCRM. Due to the arising topic of digitalization in supply chains, leading to Industry 4.0 (I4.0), there is huge potential in building a data driven, smart SCRM. To speed up research in this direction it is worthwhile to define a new research framework giving direction. To create a consistent framework and define smart SCRM in more detail a literature review will take place to select appropriate dimensions like SCRM phases, readiness stages of Digitalization/ I4.0 and SC perspectives describing the degree of SC collaboration. Afterwards the SCRM and I4.0 dimensions will be put into focus describing what impact I4.0 will have on SCRM leading to future requirements. The new framework serves as a basis for future SSCRM research. It helps to categorize research projects through multiple dimensions and to identify potential research gaps. The developed SSCRM requirements framework is a practical tool guiding the requirement specification when designing a company specific SSCRM system.
