University, NIST Researchers Develop Supply Chain Model Using NIST CPS Frameworknist.gov
After supply chain disruptions in the COVID-19 pandemic, NIST and university researchers teamed up with private sector experts to explore methods for making supply chains more resilient to radical changes in demand. Their efforts resulted in a new supply chain model, which is based on NIST’s Framework for Cyber-Physical Systems: Volume 1, overview. This development was reported in Formalizing and Reasoning about Supply Chain Contracts between Agents, published in Practical Aspects of Declarative Languages.
This team took the view that a supply chain is a “cyber-physical system” (CPS) that uses the Internet to connect physical systems and computational components to enable coordinated operations for an intended purpose. This perspective allowed researchers to use NIST’s CPS Framework to develop a common terminology for supply chain components and stakeholders, which used different language to describe their products and needs. The CPS Framework served as a foundation for developing a model ...
