Collaborative Industrial Project (CIP):

Smart Supply Chain Process Management and Innovation with Digital Workflow Automation, Blockchain Integration, and Data Mining

Smart Supply Chain Process Management and Innovation


In today’s fast-paced logistics industry, companies strive for innovative solutions to optimize supply chain processes and gain a competitive edge. SIMTech’s “Smart Supply Chain Process Management & Innovation with Digital Workflow Automation, Blockchain Integration and Data Mining” course is designed for logistics organisations and those tackling supply chain challenges.

During the 6-month course (with 10 training sessions), managers and engineers will explore the concepts and practical applications of digital workflow automation, blockchain integration, and data mining in supply chain operations. This comprehensive course combines classroom learning, exercises, and real-world implementation.

Participants begin by digitizing paper forms and automating manual workflows, enhancing supply chain processes. They will discover how digital workflow automation streamlines order fulfilment, inventory management, and logistics coordination through examples and interactive exercises.

The course then focuses on blockchain integration, exploring its potential to transform supply chain transparency, security, and traceability. Participants gain hands-on experience with Ethereum, a leading blockchain platform, and learn to customise smart contracts for supply chain challenges like product authentication and traceability.

Lastly, participants learn data mining techniques to extract valuable insights from supply chain data. They gain practical experience with tools like Excel, Orange, and Python to uncover patterns and opportunities for process improvement.

Upon completion, participants will possess the knowledge, skills, and tools to drive supply chain transformation. They will leverage on digital workflow automation, blockchain integration, and data mining to enhance supply chain efficiency, traceability, and decision-making capabilities.


  • Gain a comprehensive understanding of digital workflow automation (DWA), blockchain integration using Ethereum, and data mining techniques
  • Acquire the knowledge and skills to digitize paper forms, automate workflows, and streamline business processes within their organisations using DWA
  • Gain practical experience in creating customized blockchain smart contracts for supply chain applications using Solidity
