Consuming Linked data in Supply Chains: Enabling data visibility via Linked Pedigrees

Monika Solanki, Christopher Brewster
2013 International Semantic Web Conference  
The performance of a supply chain depends critically on the coordinating actions and decisions undertaken by the trading partners. The sharing of product and process information plays a central role in the coordination and is a key driver for the success of the supply chain. In this paper we propose the concept of "Linked pedigrees" -linked datasets, that enable the sharing of traceability information of products as they move along the supply chain. We present a distributed and decentralised,

We then present a communication protocol to enable the exchange of linked pedigrees among trading partners. We exemplify the utility of linked pedigrees by illustrating examples from the perishable goods logistics supply chain.
