Track and trace systems, in combination with digital services, can make the full supply chain more successful. Barcodes, 2D-codes or RFID technology can identify materials. At the same time, the digital services are digitizing the logistic processes, for example, repacking or validation of material in handling units.
These systems provide every stakeholder with necessary and trustworthy information via the IDS data structure. Based on the secure data exchange, further data-driven process automation, such as billing processes, is visible.
Digitized and trusted transparency of material flow in the full supply chain
Flexibility in generating new business models in the supply chain to reduce process costs
Trust is one of the highest rated requirements for collaboration in industrial environments, such as material provider and productive consumer, e.g. automotive production. Especially when exchange of sensitive data is required purely trust is not sufficient due of the fact that access to IT systems is outside of human’s control. A technical solution is mostly required to ensure data sovereignty on both ends, establishing trust by using technology.
With ONCITE, companies can process and store data on site before they exchange it over a public cloud – with data sovereignty being ensured across the entire process. ONCITE is a compact computing center that is based on edge cloud technology. At the heart of it is the IDS–certified Trusted Supplier Connector. The user interface monitors and controls any exchange of data between two partners. Using the Connector, partners can evaluate data and make it available for being used by their own or by OEMs’ systems.
