Abstract:Manufactured products flow through complex supply chains involving many actors. Visibility within the supply chain is a key business challenge with the potential to improve business performance through higher efficiency in processes as a result of this increased visibility. This visibility is difficult to achieve as it requires sharing sensitive data, requiring a high level of access control, trust and security. Blockchain technology may provide the trust and security aspects, but some challenges are present. These include user access control to manage who can perform certain actions and access data. In this research, the necessary components for a blockchain based system for supply chain visibility are identified, a prototype is developed, leading to a system architecture and knowledge of further implications that need to be overcome.
