The use case revolves around expediting and enhancing transparency between a focal company of a manufacturing ecosystem (OEM) and its supplier in their production order management processes. The existing communication methods have proven inadequate in facilitating efficient and adaptable exchanges between the two entities. By facilitating transparency and fostering a more seamless integration between the IT systems of both companies, the management of product orders can be streamlined, resulting in heightened efficiency and a reduction in errors.
The objective is to facilitate a reliable and seamless flow of data between the OEM and its supplier by establishing a dedicated data space. The developed solution will be seamlessly integrated with pre-existing IT infrastructures of both companies and the solution is grounded in the framework of the IDS reference architecture.
The OEM can selectively disclose data from their production environment to the supplier without the fear of data leakages. Respectively, the supplier receives only the data that are essential for them and there is no need to locally extract meaningful insights and valuable information from big data sets.
