Manufacturing Supply Chain Traceability with Blockchain

The National Institute of Standards and Technology’s (NIST) Engineering Laboratory (EL) and the NIST National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence (NCCoE)  will host a virtual workshop on October 26-27, 2020. The purpose of the workshop is to discuss the challenges, opportunities and use cases of various blockchain technologies to improve traceability across manufacturing supply and logistics chains.

 

Several members of the SIMBA Chain team will be presenting during the Successful Implementation Stories on October 26 at 12:50. These include Joel Neidig (CEO), Ian Taylor (CTO), Jeff Curtis (Senior Advisor), and Anjon Roy (VP of Market Development).

 

Background

Our nation’s supply chain continues to grow in complexity with a variety of stakeholders, processes, and intermediaries, constantly working together to deliver products that we all rely on. As this complexity increases, so does the need to secure our nation’s manufacturing supply chains, especially those supporting critical infrastructure.

 

The National Institute of Standards and Technology’s (NIST) Engineering Laboratory (EL) and the NIST National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence (NCCoE) are organizing this workshop organizing this workshop to inform a subsequent whitepaper that will provide guidance on the challenges and benefits of using various blockchain technologies for manufacturing supply chain traceability. This whitepaper will cover the role of blockchain technologies to improve traceability across manufacturing supply and logistics chains, to assure the provenance of parts, and to identify participants and organizations in the overall manufacturing supply chain. The whitepaper will build upon prior NIST guidance on Blockchain Technology and Securing Manufacturing Industrial Control Systems.

 

Participation

NIST invites industry subject matter experts and stakeholders to join this conversation. 

 

The workshop provides an opportunity for participants to provide feedback on relevant standards, guidelines, recommended practices, and use cases as they relate to supply chain traceability.
