Smart homes become more common, with programmable window rolling shutters, mobile control Apps for lights, security systems linked to the central police station, etc. Thanks to the same idea, but with higher potential, smart factories allow devices to communicate with each other and with computers. Welcome to the era of Industry 4.0!
This new era lets machines provide access to real-time supply chain information, making it possible to track materials and products as they move through the supply chain. It gives a real-time scope to recommend adjustments in operations for better management of operational costs. However, this connectivity is useless without a trustable and efficient network. Thankfully, we have a network called Blockchain and an enabler technology built upon the blockchain, called ARXUM.
