Who am I?
Here we demonstrate how our system will work if you are a Supply Chain Manager
Stock is running low in the warehouse… Based on your forecasting a new stock order needs to be placed.
This portal allows you to make an informed decision on order quantities based upon multiple inputs from the Omnitude Platform. Omnitude allows data flows from other Enterprise Systems already in place.
This is a Proof of Concept so not all functionality is enabled at present. Extra functionality will be added as the development continues.
What is actually going on here?
Within the full Omnitude Platform stock replenishment may be automatically triggered by your Warehouse Management System or an automated replenishment request.
In this scenario a Smart Contract is in place with the supplier. A manually entered product quantity will be manufactured and placed with a logistics partner for delivery to the warehouse.
You will place the order, it will be produced by your supplier and delivered into the National Distribution Centre. The order will be handled by a blockchain using Smart Contracts and these transition stages will be shown in the portal.
The final stage of the product being received into the National Distribution Centre warehouse will trigger a ‘push’ event to the front end eCommerce site and the stock level will automatically be updated for that product.
This Proof of Concept tells the story of how blockchain and specifically Hyperledger Fabric enables us to provide the benefits of immutability, provenance and finality into the Supply Chain workflow.
You will see a Login screen, log in with…
This takes you to the Supply Chain Management Portal where you will see a number of functions.
The enabled function so far is the ability to place a replenishment order. Choose a 10, 20 or 30.
Place the order with the "Create Replenishment Order" button.
You will see other buttons that are greyed out, that is the additional functionality that will follow as the Omnitude Platform is developed.
Log out of the Supply Chain Management Portal and into back into any of the demo eCommerce sites. Order one of the products that the Supply Chain Manager (you) previously ordered. Notice how the stock level has increased.
You can also search for all of the other stock replenishment orders that the Supply Chain Manager placed with your relevant quantity.
The Future is everything
Our building of Smart Contracts allows us to add functionality like allowed time to pick up product by the Logistic Partner and allowed delivery time.
This is purely a Proof of Concept and shows just a fraction of the power of the Omnitude Platform, a small taste of what is to come.
We would love to have your feedback and ideas around this Proof of Concept so don’t be shy… let us know what you think. And thank you for taking the time to check it out. Full details of our vision are available in our Whitepaper.
