ARXUM® Suite

What is the ARXUM® Suite?

The ARXUM® Suite is the first turn-key supply chain software that enables 100% tamper-proof and automated processing of information in your supply chain.

Based on a common backend, the ARXUM®Suite offers pre-built plug-and-play modules for your supply chain applications, such as monitoring and tracking of goods or regulated data transfers.

EXPLORE THE DIVERSITY OF USE OF THE ARXUM® SUITE:

Tracking

01

Tracking Module:

Track an object along a chain of predefined or expected events. Get real-time information about WHO is the current owner of the object and WHERE it’s currently located and store the data securely. By storing the information securely and unalterably, all steps/pathways and state transitions (WHO and WHEN changed the state of the object and under what conditions) can be seen and tracked within the tracking chain.

Tokenizing

02

Tokenizing Module:

Digitize any assets, such as products, machines, hours or even errors using tokens to assign them to digital storage locations and assign them an owner or meaning (e.g. machine hours for machine X). Smart Contracts define permissions and conditions for the creation, transfer, and deletion of tokens. This allows you to determine HOW MUCH is in WHICH digital storage location at any given time.

Transfer

03

Transfer Module:

Securely release files or data from internal or external data sources to recipients you specify. The data is safely stored in your own IT system until it is called up. The Smart Contract within the Transfer Module contains and checks the business rules according to which the data may be transferred/retrieved. Thus, various conditions, such as the number of data records per period, can be programmed.

Traceability

04

Traceability Module:

Keep an overview at all times in complex, multi-stage production and supply chain processes regardless of the industry you're working in. By backtracking the end product, you can always see which components / parts/ ingredients have been installed or used. You can also see in which end product they were installed / used.

Advantages over conventional SCM software solutions:

  • Sensitive data is stored in the register with a timestamp in such a way that it cannot be changed and can always be traced.
  • The cryptographic encryption of the stored events or data guarantees absolute security on all communication levels, from the machine level to the ERP level.
  • The plug-and-play framework enables deep security and integrated digitization of the supply chain across company boundaries
  • Data is provided fully automatically within the framework of Smart Contracts according to the rules of the business partners.
  • Ready to use modules and an ecosystem for networking all parties involved within the supply chain or company structure ensure cost-efficient and trustworthy cooperation between business partners.
  • The scalable infrastructure allows quick adaptations to new conditions at any time, such as the integration of new data sources or business partners.
  • ARXUM® Suite – Entry Level:
    Start a pilot project in a selected application area and test the possibilities of ARXUM Suite. Benefit from a short implementation phase, and meet your goals quickly.

FAQ

  • What is contained in the ARXUM® Suite?

    The ARXUM® Suite is the first turnkey supply chain solution that enables 100% audit-proof and fully automated cross-company processing of information in your supply chain. Based on a common backend, the ARXUM® Suite offers ready-made plug-and-play modules for your supply chain applications. The following components are part of the ARXUM® Suite:

    • Web interface for easy management of your ARXUM® Suite modules
    • Up to four ARXUM® Suite modules (Tracking, Traceability, Transfer and Tokenizing)
    • Pre-defined Smart Contracts per module for the execution of your services / use cases
    • Connectivity Agent to connect your IT infrastructure with the ARXUM® Suite
    • User management system to manage users and roles. A connection to an external identity provider is possible.
    • Access to a Block Explorer service, for monitoring and checking the ARXUM® Suite transactions and smart contracts.
  • What is the Connectivity Agent?

    The Connectivity Agent is a piece of software that is installed on premise or in your corporate cloud. It connects your local or external data sources (e.g. file systems, databases, ERP and MES systems, etc.) via REST API to the ARXUM® Suite blockchain. Technically, the Connectivity Agent observes your ARXUM® Suite modules and forwards requests made to your Smart Contracts, to your IT infrastructure, and vice versa.

  • What is the purpose of the Tracking Module?

    The purpose of the tracking module is to provide real-time information on relevant events along your supply chain. Track an object along a pre-defined process path. Get real-time informationabout WHO is the current owner of an object (tangible or virtual) and WHERE it’s currently located by tracking all supply chain events. Through secure and immutable information storage, all steps, pathways and state transitions can be visualized along the tracking chain (e.g. WHO, WHEN and under WHICH conditions did the state of the object change).

  • What is the purpose of the Traceability Module?

    The purpose of the Traceability Module is to enable seamless traceability of products and sub-components within your supply chain.

    Keep an overview at all times in complex, multi-stage productions and supply chain processes, regardless of your industry sector. By back-tracingthe end product, you always see which components, parts or ingredients have been installed or used. Or, by forward-tracing, you can also see in which end product they were installed or used.

  • What is the purpose of the Transfer Module?

    The purpose of the transfer module is, to fully automate the exchange of data across company boundaries. Securely provide files or data from your internal data sources (ERP, MES, CAQ, DBMS) to authorized recipients. Yourdata remains safely stored in your own IT system until called up. Smart Contracts within ARXUM® transfer module implement business rules you define, according to which data may be transferred & retrieved. Various conditions and business rules can be programmed and the data owner remains in full control and sovereign of own data through cryptographic access keys. Please note that the transferred data is never stored on the blockchain.

  • What is the purpose of the Tokenizing Module?

    The purpose of the tokenizing module is the secure digitization of physical objects.Digitize any assets, such as produced materials, products, machines, or even intangible assets such as hours, events & errors using digital tokens. Token and values can be tracked along digital storage locations and ownerships. Smart Contracts define permissions and conditions for the creation, transfer, and deletion of your digital assets. This allows for determining HOW MUCH is in WHICH digital storage location at any given time, or allows for immutable certification of material.

  • What are Smart Contracts?

    Smart Contracts are programmed self-executing scripts that are natively deployed on a blockchain. They allow enforcing conditions (similar to „If…then…else”) and executing arbitrary automation codes. The Smart Contracts allow trustworthy transactions and agreements between different parties to be carried out. Smart Contracts make all transactions traceable, transparent and irreversible, as all transactions are stored on the blockchain. However, your own process and product data is never stored on the blockchain. As the Smart Contracts themselves are stored onthe blockchain, a contract owner has full traceability on all changes ever done (e.g. to programmed conditions).

  • How scalable is the ARXUM® Suite?

    ARXUM® is working with the highly scalable EOSIO technology stack and constantly adapts the infrastructure to the required conditions. Scaling takes place in a very short time, as the ARXUM® Suite is completely basedon a cloud infrastructure, which can be adapted at short notice and as required. Depending on global geographical requirements, on the number of transactions sent or on the complexity of your smart contract code, ARXUM® can hyper-scale to most likely any condition.
