Theme Update - Blockchains in Smart Services

last modified Jun 06, 2018 07:02 PM
In May, Veronica and her team worked very hard on the first practical phase of the project – the Codification of the Blockchain Prototype for the CAT/Perkins’ Supply Chain.

The team started with a webinar presentation for the CAT team about the Blockchain platform technology and applications in services and operations. They moved fast to the diagnostic of the problem and first data gathering at CAT where the context, process, problems, rules and other implication for blockchain were captured and discussed. This data collection allowed them to start the codification of the CAT Blockchain. During the codification, they fully customized the blockchain to the specific problem and needs of the CAT/Perkins’ supply chain and customers.  After many sleepless nights, many cups of coffee and endless discussions, a great advance in coding and setting rules was achieved. The month was closed with a great sense of success when the first initial trials of the basic Blockchain body run smoothly. While the adrenaline was at the highest by coding the Blockchain, the team managed to finalise a book chapter in the journey to services and organize a conference track for the next EUROMA Conference achieving 45 papers on the topic of “Digital Services”. A busy month for this team, well done!  Next month, they will be reporting the progress on the Blockchain Prototype.
