A Collaborative Model for Agricultural Supply Chains

Prof. Evandro Baccarin

ABSTRACT

A supply chain is a network of retailers, distributors, transporters,
storage facilities
and suppliers that participate in the sale, delivery and production of
a particular product. It is composed of distributed, heterogeneous and
autonomous
elements, whose relationships are dynamic, and change while the chain
is activated. Supply chains present several research challenges, such
as recording
and tracking B2B and e-commerce transactions, designing appropriate negotiation
protocols, providing cooperative work environments among enterprises, or
coordinating loosely coupled business processes.

This talk presents a collaborative model for agricultural
supply chains that supports negotiation, renegotiation, coordination and
documentation mechanisms, adapted to situations found in this kind
of supply chain – such as return flows and composite regulations. This
model comprises basic building blocks and elements to support a chain’s
dynamic execution. The model is supported by an architecture where
chain elements are mapped toWeb Services and their dynamics to service
orchestration.
