Supply Chain proposal
Dave Cecchi provided an overview of the proposal
Are there more details on generic components being built that could be more widely shared? Supply chain is a very general term that encompasses many thing -- what is your definition and specific set of capabilities?
The motivations are supply chain centric, but certainly components from this type of framework may have applicability to other market models. Typical use cases deal with logistics, track and trace, as well as multi-party distributed supply chain business enablement. Want to solve distributed supply chain problems.
Would it be useful for Hyperledger to define a transaction format that is generic enough to be used in a wide range of environments with similar commonalities (i.e. format with sender/receiver addresses with backpointers)
What code currently exists? If this was put into incubation, what would land on Day 0? A lot seems to be centered around business process -- is supply chain as an umbrella project the best path?
Some code exists, but not production ready -- this is for incubation. Code from track and trace usage linked in proposal, as well.
Customer, counterparty/party, product or material -- reusable components that can be assembled into an application that would tie these primitives together.
Why wouldn’t existing standards for supply chain apply?
Compare Hyperledger Composer with the scope of this proposal?
Composer is a tool to help people get ramped into blockchain and do code generation of business considerations.
For this supply chain project, not code generation, but to still facilitate coding business level concerns in delivering an application.
A suggestion was made to add this into the proposal.
A suggestion was made to create a non-generic name (not “supply chain”)
A suggestion was made to have some references to existing standards, and sequencing expectations on deliverables
Questions as to whether it is limited to this vertical or more broadly encompassing
