Abstract

The basic concept of supply chain management (SCM) is to handle the flow of information, goods, and services in an efficient way to achieve better performance and minimize risk. In SCM, information or data is the key resource for collaboratory. However, it has been found that in many cases, there is lack of trust among collaborators. Blockchain technology is considered to facilitate security and privacy for several applications. This paper focuses on some case studies of SCM integration with blockchain and that how the technology allows transfer of transactions securely in a digital decentralized ledger in absence of any mediator.
