Book Description :

The central problem to be addressed in this thesis is to investigate how blockchaintechnology can be used to provide greater asset traceability in todays food supply chains.Blockchain is a shared, distributed ledger that uses cryptography to validate and record transactionsand track assets in a business network. The goal is to create a blockchain model that can beimplemented across food supply chains and present the benefits and limitations in itsimplementation. Food provenance is one of the most challenging problems that FSC companies facetoday. A global supply chain network with multiple operating procedures and asymmetrical foodregulations between countries makes end-to-end food tracking incidental to the food industry. Adetailed literature review on the current challenges in food tracking, food safety regulations and foodsupply chain design is also discussed in this research. Analysis of food illness outbreak dataset in theUS between 2007-2016 is also presented to focus on two key results. Firstly, to focus the blockchainmodel development on food products with highest food illness outbreak incidents and secondly, toincrease IoT scanning points in certain stages of the supply chain that have recorded more than 50%of the total contamination incidents. Finally, a blockchain model is created using HyperledgerSawtooth, and its benefits over conventional information technology systems and global foodtracking methods are presented. Future research studies can focus on using blockchain enabledmodels to replace ERP systems, reduce food waste and improve supply management between stagesin the food supply chain.

Book Description :

The COVID-19 pandemic has taken precious lives and devastated the global economy. It has also revealed chinks in our supply chains. Not only have manufacturers found themselves scrambling unsuccessfully to find new suppliers when their Asian sources shut down, but the Western world has experienced across-the-board shortages of essential consumer packaged goods for the first time in decades. Blockchain technology has the potential to minimize these kinds of pandemic disruptions. In this book, some of the world's top experts show how blockchain--in combination with other innovations such as additive manufacturing, artificial intelligence, and the Internet of Things--can address longstanding problems that make the business of getting goods to customers so slow and expensive, especially in crises. Today's supply chains are complex, as they move resources through trucks, planes, boats, and trains. Too many parties rely on a hodgepodge of documents and intermediaries to do business, which make the whereabouts and custody of goods unclear. That's why, in a pandemic, uninformed consumers might reasonably believe that toilet paper won't be available for many months. Enter blockchain--the Internet of Value. For the first time in human history, individuals and organizations can manage and trade their assets digitally peer to peer. In doing so, they will reinvent global commerce and how we exchange value. This will transform the best practices of operations, logistics, procurement and purchasing, transportation, customs and border control, trade finance and insurance, manufacturing, and inventory management. Global supply chains are ripe for disruption at every level and in every role. Supply Chain Revolution identifies what leaders should be doing now to prepare their organizations for the inevitable decentralized future. Enterprise executives and entrepreneurs alike will find ideas and opportunities to discuss with their stakeholders and decide how best to participate in the blockchain revolution.

Book Description :

As supply chains are becoming increasingly more complex, there are always new ways to advance them for efficiency, especially as technology evolves and expands. Blockchain is an emerging technology that has many potential applications to the supply chain, namely, the pharmaceutical supply chain. This thesis examines the current pharmaceutical supply chain from both payment and product standpoints. It explains blockchain technology and provides applications for meeting regulation compliance, creating efficiency for the complex payment system, and providing better treatment for consumers of the products by utilizing the supply chain. This thesis concludes by highlighting the benefits of blockchain application. While it concludes that it is ultimately beneficial to invest in blockchain solutions, it does comment on the overarching challenges it would take to implement them, as many of the applications face similar challenges. The thesis recommends implementing a blockchain system as a means to create efficiency and cut costs due to administrative tasks and slow lag time, as well as create a more secure and interoperable way to store data. However, it notes that due to the relative novelty of the technology, there are many hurdles that must be overcome, namely creating an industry standard, getting all parties to adopt the technology, and cost, that can be overcome if the industry works together to solve them.

Book Description :

In a competitive global market place, technology adoption and application in supply chain is becoming increasingly important as companies seek to acquire competitive advantages. Since blockchain’s advent to the global stage of modern disruptive technologies, several questions remain unanswered pertaining to the benefits that blockchain adoption poses to global supply chains. I apply a typology analysis to a corpus of company filings, press releases and industry studies to better understand the reasons for which global supply chains industry wide are adopting blockchain technology and the specific benefits which they seek to exploit through the use of blockchain. I characterize the intentions of management in a variety of companies and industries through the application of importance scores applied to company management’s expressed reasons for blockchain adoption into their global supply chains. I standardize analysis by industry and key blockchain benefits applied to supply chains. As a final application, I apply a case study analysis to early adopters of blockchain to assess intentionality in adopting blockchain and the expected supply chain benefits that are expected to result therefrom.
