CHALLENGE

The client requested development of a Kanban app for its clients to instantly order SKUs with their tablet or mobile phone. Most importantly, the provenance of the products and integrity of the supply chain needed to be ensured.

PROCESS

As we designed a full-stack application to allow the company to fulfil it’s clients order in real-time (Kanban), the DLT-layer enabled uninterrupted monitoring of the entire supply chain and ensure the provenance of products. Hence, the sequence below refers to the DLT-part of the project only:

2. WORKSHOP

We conducted several senior- and middle-management workshops and covered the following aspects:

  • Principles of distributed ledger technologies
  • Productive DLT solutions and industry-specific DLT applications
  • Client stakeholder mapping
  • Status quo analysis and syncing with management agenda (reasoned use cases)
  • Problem statements, target model definition, ideation & use case synthesis
  • Evaluation with an integrated heuristic for preliminary assessment of technological, financial, operational and legal ramifications

Findings from both the workshops and system audits were modulated in the feasibility report.

3. FEASIBILITY

We conducted a detailed feasibility report prior to taking stock on all relevant software requirement specifications:

  • Definition of project scope
  • Legal & regulatory attestations
  • Definition of systems actors
  • Design of system architecture
  • Definition of functional & resource requirements
  • Planning of deployment environment
  • Definition of non-functional requirements

3. FEASIBILITY

Once all milestones, deliverables, timeline and the budget were agreed upon, we kicked-off the implementation of the Proof-of-Concept:

  • We detailed the preliminary framework configurations and software requirement specifications
  • In the kick-off meeting, we assembled the final team structure and designed Scrum-specific project roles
  • Time to project completion was 11 weeks
