Abstract:Consumerism has become one of the main pillars of today’s world economies. This is putting increased pressure on supply chains to have a good and efficient management. The increased size and complexity of supply chains along with fraud and misunderstandings also results in a high number of disputes between parties. These have the potential not only to disrupt supply chain partnerships and activities, but also lead to time and financial losses. This thesis proposes a dispute resolution blockchain system built with the permissioned Hyperledger Fabric technology, which helps manage and solve disputes in the supply chain easier. The developed system allows easy tracking and access to information among supply chain participants such as the source, current and past states and holder information of assets. It also enables dispute creation, examination and settlement within the app. Because the designed system is meant to be as automated as possible, it implements automated shipment deliveries among organizations. To showcase the system functionalities, a web Graphical User Interface has been developed. Finally, the system design is analyzed from the security point of view and implementation details are discussed.
