A Blockchain Application Supporting the Manufacturing Value Chain

Abstract : Blockchain applications supporting the manufacturing value chain are beginning to appear; early adaptors are testing blockchain technology for applications like trace and track, life cycle management by digital twins, protection of intellectual property rights, enforcement of licensing agreements, and trading platforms for 3D printed parts. The aim of this paper is to discuss the use of blockchain applications in the value chain of manufacturers followed by a case study of a blockchain application used in the value chain of a Norwegian furniture manufacturer involving the manufacturer, a third-party service provider, a retailer, and the end-customer. The application supports a product configurator providing product selection and customization, a delivery planner and a product tracker using an open public blockchain for inter-organizational data-sharing.
