Purpose and goal

The aim of the project has been to evaluate whether the principles of Systems-of-System can be applied to an industrial supply chain with focus on the transport between production to a port terminal. The project propose an architecture based on semantics and linked data that delivers an organisational independent linking of existing IT-environments with several different standards and data formats.

Expected results and effects

Results from the project details existing challenges in a supply chain. The challenges have been mapped based on an analysis of an actual flow of gods. Based on the mapped challenges focus has been put to produce and suggest an architecture based on the principles of Systems-of Systems incl. a few examples of potential digital applications. This has been achieved by basing the suggested solution on semantics and linked data.

Planned approach and implementation

The project has been implemented in three workpackages. 1. A mapping on an actual industrial flow with focus on quality in subprocesses (manual as well as IT-based) 2. A suggested future architecture based on semantics and linked data and overall system applications aiming to streamline flows 3. A qualitative effect analysis evaluating the impact of the future architecture, incl. linked system applications to improve societal benefits, benefits for the logistics operations as well as from an organisational perspective.

The project description has been provided by the project members themselves and the text has not been looked at by our editors.
