Hi All, Another great meeting.
Thanks for your active participation and discussion. Slides, meeting notes, and recording will be posted on Supply Chain SIG wiki home page.
As a reminder if you have not joined a specific project yet, please consider doing so. Start by adding your name to projects, and contributing content.
Meeting Minutes - 6/20/2019
- Reviewed poll result to determine SIG meeting time - Thursday, 9am PST still a top choice. Poll is opened indefinitely for everyone to vote.
- Recognized Marco Carvalho, Adnan Iftekhar, and Zaher Srour for their community leadership and enthusiastic contribution in the last two weeks
- Shared a few industry news items- The retailer, Target, unveiled and open sourced project ConsenSource, that runs on sawtooth. Codebase is in GitHub, FB announced Libra, Fed government doing a study on how they may use blockchain with Booz Allen (see slides for links to articles, and repos, etc)
- Suggestion: It would bMinutes - June 20e good to get an update on progress made in food consortiums, find contacts and invite them to present, make it part of the discussions: MediLedger, FoodTrust, Target’s ConsenSource (if anyone knows someone who can speak about these consortiums feel free to invite them, and we can add them to the agenda). Everyone - invite contacts from these food consortiums to come and present in our SIG meeting.
- Suggestion: Bret Carpenter will send abstract of his proposed talk on use of Geospatial info, for potential inclusion in a future SIG meeting.
- Question: Grid project details and code repo may be found here: https://wiki.hyperledger.org/display/GRID/Hyperledger+Grid
- Joseph Catende - FL, Accountant, F500 company, Interested in Grid, access to codebase, Entrepreneur - Github. Startup - How GTM can be made into an agile process.
- Bret Carpenter - Financial professional, Asset management in precious metal. Bold Forward with CDW, Inception program with Nvidia - Geospatial - Would like to present AR and Geospatial technology he is developing.
- Kamlesh - Pune, India - Startup, IT, Building supply chain solutions for different sectors based on Hyperledger Fabric
- Christian Winzeler - Works in RSM, based in S. California, Food & Beverage consulting practice, interested in Food Safety
- Amim Knabben - Logistics company in NY
- Wesley Graham - Oracle, Product Management, Track and Trace app, interested in defining standards
- John Hopkins - Track and Trace for a cannabis startup, interested in Grid, working on Semantics Working Group working on overlays to create shared context across different ledgers
Food Safety Project Meeting Notes
- Add Ripe.io, Corda, Food Trust
- Add more details to scope
- Deliverable suggestion - one stop shop for understanding where the industry is at, best practices, analysis of consortium models - what’s unique about them
- Talk about how these interact with outside systems - return data - how do we make it easy for getting that data in/out of blockchain - Bret has done some work in Blockchain and AWS - Integration/Interoperability heading/bullet is needed.
- Vivek Ahuja & Michael Ribet from Sofbang will join this project - please add yourself to wiki.
Supply Chain Contract Template Meeting Notes
- Defining interactions, taxonomy, participants
- Start with High level - types of smart contracts with supply chain. Then go to industry specific smart contracts (pharma, beverage, life science)
- Its not system specific - hyperledger fabric or sawtooth - that’s implementation detail. This project seeks to capture the business logic - data model, state transitions, business logic is the smart contract implementing.
- Create a spec for smart contract logic - what capabilities should the smart contract support.
- Project Transact will be announced shortly - integration points for blockchain with supply chain processes
- Be more specific to particular supply chain sub-processes e.g. purchase orders, reconciliation, acceptance notices, etc. talking about how smart contracts deal with these sub-processes.
- Does what asset you monitor also has an implication on smart contract logic - it should be a nuance worth covering
- One idea - group can review BiTA specs - https://static1.squarespace.com/static/5aa97ac8372b96325bb9ad66/t/5c7e8882f9619a98a55ec24d/1551796355748/BiTAS+Location+Component+Specification+v4.pdf (Dave to check if this is current or not) - and propose smart contracts that can handle state transitions with the events.
- GS1 also has defined EPCIS for data models and state transitions, which could be used to build logic for smart contract template - https://www.gs1.org/sites/default/files/docs/epc/EPCIS-Standard-1.2-r-2016-09-29.pdf.
Use Case Repository:
- Mark and Jay to create a wiki based structure that we can use to define each use case.
- Everyone writes editable use cases (sample will be posted) on wiki for collaborative editing
- Create categories for use cases - by industry - retail, food, pharma, discrete manufacturing, process manufacturing, logistics, etc.
Using Blockchain for Drug Supply Chain Security Act
- Action: Put a link to the actual DSCSA regulation document
- Government wants to more granuarly track drugs in supply chain
- Ben shared a link to the FDA page that outlines things like MediLedger - their specs for smart contracts are on Github
- Legislation is being transformed into specs through 2023 - i.e. Unique identifier for all drugs at a salable unit level that carries though from manufacturer, to wholesaler, to pharmacy - several FDA pilots are underway
- One use case for MediLedger is to verify returned drugs
- Baiju, Marco, Ben and others will jump on a call next week - others please add your name to wiki if you want to be included in that call.
- FDA already has a “guidance document” - Ben to provide link on wiki page - that’s already established data models, schemas, etc.
- Also, GS1 has a spec for healthcare and pharmaceutical already - that talks about DSCSA - to frame up data models and schemas - https://www.gs1us.org/industries/healthcare/standards-in-use/pharmaceutical. For this use case, defining a schema (data model) and smart contracts to handle the type of transactions that need to be processed by a distributed solution would be a great exercise for this use case. ("Definition of Done" could be completing those deliverables.)
- Marta to make introductions to GS1 team, and invite them to the next call
