This study aims at investigating how Lucania' farms cluster according to the level of innovation adopted. It was used a questionnaire for asking if farms adopts ICTs tools and, in case, what type they involved in managing and/or production processes. It has been done a cluster analysis on collected data. Results show that, using k-means clustering method, appear two clusters: innovators, remaining groups. While, using boxplot representation, clustered three groups: innovators, early adopters and laggards. Results will be exploited for identifying good practices in terms of smart devices adopted, within the H2020 project “Short Supply Chain Knowledge and Innovation Network - SKIN”.

Abstract

This study aims at investigating how Lucania' farms cluster according to the level of innovation adopted. It was used a questionnaire for asking if farms adopts ICTs tools and, in case, what type they involved in managing and/or production processes. It has been done a cluster analysis on collected data. Results show that, using k-means clustering method, appear two clusters: innovators, remaining groups. While, using boxplot representation, clustered three groups: innovators, early adopters and laggards. Results will be exploited for identifying good practices in terms of smart devices adopted, within the H2020 project “Short Supply Chain Knowledge and Innovation Network - SKIN”.
