July Community of Interest Meeting

last modified Jul 04, 2018 02:19 PM
In collaboration with our Industrial Partners, the July Community of Interest Meeting (CoI) took place at Perkins, in Peterborough. The focus of this year events is on 'How companies can strategically design, pilot and experiment digital services in the new digital age?’

In the July event, the Alliance jointly discussed two main research topics:

  1. Blockchains technology to optimize the supply chain

This first project aims to develop a methodology to model and simulate the use of blockchain technology for automating part of the demand-supply operations of a manufacturing site and exploring new smart services enabled by this digital technology.  The interactions between customers-employees-providers will be recorded, analyzed and triangulated with other real-time factory data to inform the models.  The project will consider the codification of a blockchain application and development of scenarios' analyses.  A demonstrator will be prepared to support, evaluate and improve the proposed methodology.

  1. Moments of Truth in Services: AI-Neuro-marketing Perspective

The second project aims to develop a methodology and demonstration using real time data and AI technique to analyze the customers ''moments of truth'' to increase the quality of service experience perceived by the customer.  Also, the project will consider capturing and analysing the interaction between employees and customers using data generated from wearable technologies to identify anomalies in customer journeys - where customers deviate from habit or predictions and identify opportunities for intervention and moments of influence.
