Introduction to Traceability Chains for Manufacturing Supply Chain Visibility


Manufacturing supply chains are increasingly critical to maintaining the health, security, and the economic strength of the United States. To address the supply chain traceability challenges, the NCCoE Manufacturing Supply Chain Traceability team recently published the Project Description for the Manufacturing Supply Chain Traceability Using Blockchain Related Technologies project. This project is a follow-on to the earlier NIST IR 8419 White Paper published in April 2022.

Join us to discuss the planned multi-ecosystem reference implementation for supporting supply chain traceability research.  During this one-hour webinar, the team will describe the current plan, from the Project Description, for creating an environment that supports capturing and querying traceability transactions.

We look forward to your feedback.
