Ongoing projects

Digital Supply Chain (DSC Core)
Systemic Value Transforming within the Industrial Internet. DSC Core focuses on new value creation that’s based on standardized business process and IoT data integration. Our research studies how ecosystem integration can be accelerated by sharing relevant open standardized information and blockchain technology across organizations, finding new methods to manage change across the supply chain.

Digital Supply Chain

The DSC Core project is executed as a case research. Integration pilots are implemented by all of our stakeholders in the supply chain: buyer organisations, their suppliers, intermediator operators, transaction based financing and IT service providers.  All the stakeholders are also studied from the ecosystem perspective to validate their system interfaces. Results are openly shared with the companies in the DBE. The project was started in the beginning of October 2016, and it will end by 2019. The total budget is 580 000 euros. DSC Core cooperates with the following international associate partners: OASIS/UBL, GS1/RosettaNet US, RosettaNet Singapore, IBM, Technical University of Dortmund and Fraunhofer Institute. Our research will contribute in the form of scientific articles and by providing new knowledge and new business models for integration practitioners.

The Digital Disruption of Industry

The DDI project studies the impacts of digitalization to the Finnish society through the lens of the industry. The next industrial revolution has already started with digitalisation making it possible to create intelligent and networked products and produce significant added value. This six year project (2015-2020) is funded by the Strategic Research Council (SRC) at the Academy of Finland. SRC provides funding to long-term and programme-based research aimed at finding solutions to the major challenges facing Finnish society. The multi-disciplinary consortium consists of ten research groups from Aalto University, ETLA, Lappeenranta University of Technology, VTT Technical Research Center of Finland and University of Turku.
