The Agile-Based Monitoring and Management System for Dairy Supply Chain - the User Driven Design Approach
The paper considers how the agile concept can be included into The User Driven Design framework. This design method combines requirements and constraints of users and stakeholders. The agile concept can be treated as one of the requirements, which should be considered differently by various users and stakeholders. The design process depends on the application fields and has to be implemented accordingly to their characteristics. The case study of this research is a monitoring and management system that enables adaptation of the conventional dairy supply chain to the agile supply chain strategy. Due to the daily variation of the milk production, the efficient dairy supply chain requires a forecast and real-time data regarding adaptations to the variation. The system should accommodate not only changes dependent on external environmental conditions, but also internal unpredictable circumstances. The agile-based supply chain could help to maintain the high responsiveness and flexibility among the dairy plant, transportation provider and milk suppliers. To evaluate the agile strategy, an engineering solution, including hardware and software, which monitors and manages transportation as a part of the dairy supply chain is proposed. The solution is implemented and tested at a medium-sized dairy company. (original abstract)
