Blockchain for Digital Manufacturing and Logistics

+ VAT if face-to-face attendance

Supercharge your company’s digital transformation with blockchain technology

Digitisation is the key to staying competitive and increasing productivity. For the manufacturing and logistics sector, this starts with blockchain technology.

Today, blockchain technology is being used to share data, to save costs and unlock new business opportunities, but it can also help you improve traceability, support cross-organisational notifications, log critical events, product and material certifications, enhance warranty services, and facilitate contractual agreements. It can even be fully integrated into your existing IT systems and processes.

What you will gain

Developed in partnership with the renowned Budapest University of Technology and Economics, the course teaches you to evaluate and introduce blockchain-based solutions into your digital manufacturing and logistics systems. The course kicks-off with a deep dive into blockchain essentials and by taking an in-depth look at which of your processes will benefit most from ‘blockchainification’.

The course uses a combination of face-to-face training, group activities, and hands-on exercises to cover an array of specific blockchain solutions, processes, and concepts, including: 

  • Key business cooperation patterns
  • How to apply blockchains
  • The role of smart contracts in business cooperation
  • Digital twinning, digital thread, and block-based services in digital manufacturing
  • Process migration
  • Addressing domain-specific requirements with blockchain
  • DAML language and hyperledger fabric
  • Defining measurable KPIs for blockchain models

To enhance the learning experience, the course includes an opportunity to apply your new skills and knowledge towards solving real-world problems. One of the course’s most popular components is the ‘bring your own problem’ session. This is a unique opportunity to apply blockchain proof-of-concept applications to the types of challenges you face every day.
