Fraunhofer IML develops a blockchain-based platform concept for the medium-sized enterprise group EJOT
Within the project “Blockchain in the EJOT Supply Chain”, the Fraunhofer IML, in close collaboration with the medium-sized company group EJOT, is elaborating blockchain-based platform concepts for the development of a contract service provider and a dynamic discounting platform. Fraunhofer IML analyses ongoing processes along the supply chain of EJOT and develops a target concept for the use of a blockchain-based platform solution.
The development of a contract service provider platform based on blockchain technology enables systematic data collection that creates transparency on all manufacturing orders. This is intended to reduce the manual synchronization and coordination effort for EJOT and its contract service providers.
As part of the project start, the ongoing process at EJOT and selected contractor service provider was started, which provides insights into the current exchange of information. Based on this, a blockchain-based platform concept was developed, which builds on the existing process and integrates the advantages of blockchain technology. According to the jointly elaborated concept, a blockchain-based contract service provider platform can be developed in the further course of the project.
