Design, Develop and Implement

SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS ANALYSIS

Our team can conduct a system requirements analysis to assess your current data collection systems and business processes and to recommend the most appropriate system transformation plan.
Upon completion of the functional requirements specification,  our system architects define the hardware, software and custom modifications required to optimize your SCEM system. 

OBEDA™ IMPLEMENTATION

Our team can help you implement an SCEM system based on OBEDA infrastructure for plug-and-play interoperability that minimizes complex middleware and system integration costs.  Information sharing based on OBEDA (ontology-based event-driven architecture) is ideal for heterogeneous supply chains.

RFID SYSTEM DESIGN

An RFID system has many components which global standards have helped ensure can work together. However, simply connecting the components together does not mean that the system will work effectively – the components must be configured to work together.  Many countries also impose a specific limit on the amount of power that may be transmitted from the antenna. The power transmitted is not simply that output by the reader but is a result of the influence of many components within the system, which is why it is important to know how to configure the system overall to work in unison.  Our team can perform an RFID Site Survey to help determine these factors.

IOT SYSTEM DESIGN

Our team can help design systems that incorporate IoT sensors, actuators, and controllers to monitor and react to the condition of products throughout a supply chain.  We can design IoT systems for asset tracking, fleet management, food traceability, and temperature monitoring. These systems are designed to provide greater visibility into supply chain data and processes and to leverage cognitive technologies to predict and mitigate disruptions and risks and deliver more value to your business.

BPM/MICROSERVICE DESIGN

Our team can help you design and implement model-based businesses processes that can be implemented as decoupled microservices. These microservices can consume, produce, and distribute events that, when connected, can orchestrate an entire distributed B2B2C workflow.  By modeling business processes, manual coding within each microservice can be minimized or eliminated.

TASK-DRIVEN UI DESIGN

In most businesses, there are hundreds of tasks that must be completed every day in order to deliver the best customer experience possible. Since tasks can come from so many different sources, orchestrating the execution of these tasks is a real challenge.  Our team can help you integrate a task-driven UI for your mobile workforce based on an event-driven architecture that supports human-machine collaboration.  This architecture can automatically create personalized real-time prioritized task lists that workers could access from any device.

ONTOLOGY DEVELOPMENT

Ontologies are structured, machine-readable concepts, terminology, relationships, and rules about a knowledge domain. Our team can help you integrate a common commerce ontology within your business systems to enable interoperable information exchange with trading partners.   We can also help you develop custom extensions to a commerce ontology such as OBEDA or schema.org tailored to your business operations and supporting a unified commerce platform. can support intelligent insights and actions using microservices.

BLOCKCHAIN INTEGRATION

Supply chain processes often require information collected in the field to validate transactions. Think of measurements of conditions of shipped goods, including storage temperature or humidity. This data is collected by different sensors at each stage of the supply chain, and validated in an immutable registry, represented by a blockchain digital ledger.  We can help you build supply chain workflows on the OBEDA platform that integrate IoT devices with a blockchain network. Relevant objects and their state changes are stored using OBEDA's Common API Gateway. Transactions are validated by executing smart contracts on the blockchain that are modeled from OBEDA ontologies.
