Semantic Supply Chain Management
The efficiencies of Supply Chain Management (SCM) are often impaired by inconsistent exchange and sharing of information semantics among supply chain partners. Small and medium enterprises formed into a supply chain are working in a multi-cultural and multilingual environment. The eBEST platform equips these enterprises and their associations with state-of-the-art software tools for ecosystem-wide business collaboration. To ensure effective collaboration through the whole supply chain visible communication, traceable workflow and process management are required by users. In the eBEST project the semantic interoperability was realized by ontological approach and is tested by pilots in nowadays.
