The major aspects and impacts of the interrelationships between Industry 4.0 (I4.0) technology and Lean Supply Chain Management are discussed in this article (LSCM). Many practical LSCM systems based on I4.0 have lately appeared. Despite this, there has been little research into the use of I4.0 technologies within LSCM. Machine learning, smart factories, blockchain, and the internet of services (IoS) are all possible LSCM revolution enablers. The goal of this research is to find out more about present and potential I4.0 technologies that can improve LSCM research and application in order to fill a gap in the current literature. A Systematic Literature Review (SLR) technique was used for the collection, selection, and evaluation of published literature. We looked at 79 studies published between 2010 and 2021 that were found in the Scopus database.
