Abstract

Building on earlier work, this paper aims to demonstrate and discuss an instantiated architecture for situation-aware logistics in an operational environment using smart returnable assets. The demonstration is based on a
motivation scenario focusing on exception management. The system outline and its components, interfaces, and enabling technologies are described and linked to the different layers of the architecture. This paper documents and illustrates the use of the system with detailed models and screenshots. Earlier work is extended using business rules to identify and quantify exceptions and potential disruptions. Specifically, it is shown how shipment data are enhanced with data from IoT sensors of smart returnable assets to provide situation-aware decision
support based on data analytical methods. This demonstration provides scholars and practitioners, active in the fields of enterprise computing, insights into the concepts, models and engineering technologies used to implement an architecture for situation-aware logistics. The instantiated architecture provides
a rich testbed for experiments, measurements, and incorporate the ideas promoted by the international data space initiative. An online recording is available to support the demonstration and ignite discussion about the potential of IoT technologies and future research directions in pursuit of the smart logistics vision.
