Four deliverables from WP2 PLANET Cloud-based Open EGTN Infrastructure have been submitted at the end of November and are now ready to be read!
- D2.12 Multi-Actor Multi-Criteria Analysis final version. This report addresses the challenges associated to multi-stakeholder decision making in the context of Transport and Logistics (T&L). A Multi-actor multi-criteria analysis is undertaken considering the unique supply chain contexts of intercontinental corridors, warehouse and hinterland transport and last mile delivery. Operators with activity in all three supply chain sectors are found to have unique operational criteria and priorities, that indicate the need for separate instantiations of MACMA in each context.
- D2.14 Intelligent PI Nodes and PI NetworkServicesfinal version. This deliverable proposes methods and algorithms, that adapt legacy T&L practices to the operational principles of the Physical Internet (PI). The proposed methods have been identified based on the challenges identified in the Living Labs (LLs) but have been developed in a LL agnostic way into services, as part of a more generalized framework of T&L solutions. The deliverable focuses both on the algorithms and their performance, as well as the EGTN platform that embodies the algorithms, their interactions with other EGTN services and where applicable with the interaction with the user.
- D2.16 Integration and Interoperability of proprietary BlockchainSystemsfor SeamlessGlobal Trade Workflows final version. This deliverable is the second and final report on the integration and interoperability of proprietary Blockchain systems as part of the PLANET project. The report aspires to inform any stakeholder or consortium of stakeholders involved or interested in the design of innovative, cross-organisational EU-Global T&L networks, but also any stakeholders interested in the deployment of Blockchain interoperability solutions in T&L or any other field in which the use of smart contracts can be applied. The report presents the design, architecture, interfaces, and implementation of the Blockchain ‘front end’ that is an integral component of the open cloud based EGTN Platform. This includes the presentation of the APIs between the different backend Blockchain networks, as well as the APIs towards the other EGTN components. The EGTN Interledger Service acts as a proxy between backend Blockchain systems and redirects traffic from oneto another by translating heterogeneous events to a commonly agreed Data Model.
- D2.18 EGTN smart contracts and associated PI motivated workflows in the context of SLAmanagementfinal version. This deliverable focuses on the design and structure of the Blockchain-enabled smart contracts which are called to facilitate, verify, or enforce the negotiation or performance of a contract or an aspect of the SLA. Smart contracts are employed in the context of Blockchain interoperability, which aims at unifying multiple proprietary Blockchain systems of different T&L stakeholders. In this manner, actors across the entire T&L supply chain shall be able to collaborate and exchange information seamlessly. The report aims to inform any stakeholder or consortium of stakeholders involved or interested in the design of innovative, cross-organisational EU-Global T&L networks, but also any stakeholders interested in the deployment of Blockchain interoperability solutions in T&L or any other field where the use of smart contracts can be applied by replacing existing paper-based contracts.
