One Network Enterprises, a global provider of secure, multi-party business networks that enable autonomous supply chain management, today announced the availability of the latest version of its Real Time Value Network™ (RTVN). Version 22 continues to enhance the customer-driven, agile, and responsive business network that enables companies to onboard once and be connected to a rich ecosystem of trading partners so they can effectively manage, optimize and automate multi-party processes.

Underpinning the new functionality in 22.0 is NEO, the Company’s proprietary machine learning (ML) and intelligent agent technology that makes and executes decisions and supports autonomous supply chain management. NEO identifies patterns, trends, and anomalies and extracts insights to inform execution decisions and make recommendations. NEO monitors millions of outcomes of decisions across the network and uses ML to continually improve decision-making abilities and results. It also enhances the current Control Tower services and includes key performance enhancements that is designed to support high volume, high transactional networks such as Telematics/GPS and IoT applications.

“Using real-time, critical supply chain data, One Network’s platform continues to help companies improve their operational efficiencies by providing valuable insight and network-informed recommendations that drive positive business results,” said Greg Brady, CEO of One Network Enterprises. “The combination of the consumer-driven multi-party network, our autonomous supply chain technology and customizable network agents, plus our depth of supply chain expertise, helps customers gain greater business value and a stronger competitive advantage in a matter of months not years.”

Additional platform enhancements include:

  • NEO is enhanced with new simulation skills and a new stream processing framework to support high volume Internet of Things (IoT) data streams.
  • Dispute Management enables the creation, and management of disputes for any and all parts of a shipment.
  • Blockchain Support improved functionality orchestrates permissions across, and writes transactions to, multiple blockchain networks. Blockchain-enabled transaction throughput has been boosted to in excess of 100 transactions per second and now supports Hyperledger Fabric (in addition to existing support for Ethereum).
  • High-Fidelity, What-If Scenarios available to customers through NEO’s micro-simulation skill. This enables end-users to perform complex network-altering, what-if scenarios to study the effect of the proposed change even before they are implemented.
  • Stream Processing Framework handles high-volume data sources and events such as those from GPS and IoT sensors.
  • Time Bounded Role Assignment allows organizations to grant temporary permissions and assign roles to users for delimited time periods.

The new version significantly enhances the Supply Chain core as well as other industry cores. These industry cores provide rich and nuanced functionality for specific industries, including Aerospace and Defense, Automotive and Manufacturing, Consumer Goods, High Tech, Humanitarian and Pharmaceuticals. They do this by providing industry-specific data models, terminology, functionality and workflows.

Supply Chain Core Enhancements 
NEO enhancement also improves the central Supply Chain core bringing improved performance to autonomous skills including, forecasting, replenishment, supply allocation, inventory planning, and multi-tier material planning. Other supply chain core enhancements include:

Item Catalog /GS1 with enhanced admin and standard user functionality, allows Admin users to manage schema definitions and associate schemas with product hierarchies; allows Standard users view and update attribute values on new the Item Attributes tab.

Streamlined Partner Onboarding with self-service onboarding that simplifies the onboarding process. Now customers can quickly search for, and establish partnerships with, organizations already in ONE. They can also easily invite organizations to join ONE if they have not already joined. Customers have complete visibility to invitations and their statuses.

Task Orders are a set of instructions with optionally associated transactions which can be assigned to specific users.

Rule-Driven Document Holds that trigger document holds when users do not upload required Documents within a preconfigured time.  

Many other functions have been added, improved and redesigned, including Logistics, Sales & Operations Planning, Order Management, Warehouse Management, Optimized Execution, and Manufacturing.

Supply Chain Management Association Becomes Supply Chain Canada

Published

on

Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

At its AGM yesterday, the Supply Chain Management Association™ announced its name change to Supply Chain Canada™. The association also launched a new website as part of an overall rebranding initiative.

“The new name and look are part of a transformation that we have undertaken as the association enters its second century,” said Christian Buhagiar, President & CEO of Supply Chain Canada. “Today’s supply chains are dynamic and fast-paced. The association for Canada’s supply chain professionals must reflect that.”

Through the rebranding process, the association has also acquired a meaningful new logo and tagline, “Professionals advancing the future.”

The logo’s maple leaf design not only conveys our nationality; it also represents the connectedness of the supply chain, illustrating the networks and collaboration that are so essential to supply chain success, and the interconnectedness of the association’s federation, institutes and members. Its connected dots can be seen, as well, as the complex route of a global supply chain.

“Professionals advancing the future” succinctly communicates both the professional status of supply chain practitioners and their forward-looking perspective. It is intended to:

  1. Elevate the perception of supply chain practitioners as professionals, acknowledging the value they bring to their organizations and to the Canadian economy.
  2. Encompass the several ways that the association and its members “advance” – in their personal careers and knowledge, and for the profession, the country and the economy.
  3. Express the future focus of the association – with its emphasis on the development of skills and policies – and of the supply chain itself, now so focused on AI, blockchain, robotics, automation and so on.

The new website, now at www.supplychaincanada.com, is enhanced with a modern look and new functionality that enables location-based content for users across Canada.

These changes are not simply style enhancements. They are part of a larger plan to strengthen the association. Supply Chain Canada consolidates the organization’s brand across the country under a single name in every province and territory, removing any possible confusion from its federation structure. “The unity that this will ensure will help us improve recognition in the sector, and thereby provide stronger leadership to the Canadian supply chain community,” said Buhagiar.

The association’s transformation began in 2018 with a new vision and mission, as well as an ambitious three-year strategic plan. The new name and rebranding announced yesterday are part of a larger evolution that will continue over the next two years with the introduction of new and revised educational offerings, new initiatives to engage with industry, more value-added membership benefits and more.

Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Export Portal CEO Ally Spinu will be adding her take on the alignment of trade facilitation and sustainable development goals at a session at the 9th Asia-Pacific Trade Facilitation Forum (APTFF) in New Delhi.

“The Asia-Pacific region is a wealth of unexplored opportunities which lay deep in the communities of local businessmen and women that just need support in bringing their amazing products to the world to see and buy,” Ms. Spinu said. “I am looking forward to this event and being a part of the change that will help local businesses from this part of the world sell their products globally. I deeply believe that shifting attention to developing SMEs is the major change international trade and local economies have been waiting for.”

This year’s APTFF will focus on how digital and sustainable trade facilitation measures and practices can bring prosperity in the Asia-Pacific region. The forum will investigate opportunities from trade digitalization for sustainable progress of the area and challenges ahead in materializing such opportunities. APTFF will feature panel discussions as well as interactive and informative sessions. These sessions will allow participants to share experiences and perspectives on different aspects of trade facilitation, including trade finance, cross-border eCommerce and paperless trade, transit, innovative application of emerging technologies, and more. APTFF will bring relevant regional initiatives and implementation cases to each session, making it a unique opportunity to share knowledge and practical lessons. The forum will also include many side-events providing a more in-depth exploration of the pertinent trade facilitation issues.

“Agricultural products are the fastest category and industry growing within Export Portal, and I can say that is just natural that SMEs around the world are actively looking for new ways for selling their products around the world,” Ms. Spinu said. “The role of innovative technologies such as Export Portal is crucial in helping these SMEs integrate within the world supply chain of food with ease and at optimal costs. I want to explain the current issues existing within SMEs’ integration in international trade due to the high cost involved and how technology slowly but surely changes this.”

Export Portal’s trade goals align directly with the purpose of this session, as its international B2B trade platform is an affordable and all-encompassing solution for SMEs all over the world. The features that are available and being developed on Export Portal, such as the panel of experts (EP+), the educational hub (EPU), and data flow insights (EPI), provide SMEs with the resources they need to trade effectively on an international scale safely, securely, and efficiently.

The Digital and Sustainable Trade Facilitation for Regional Prosperity session is co-organized by ADB, ESCAP, Ministry of Commerce, India and Confederation of Indian Industry and will be held on Wednesday, September 18, from 9:00 to 10:45 AM.
