Monika Solanki is a Senior Research Fellow in the Operations and Information Management academic group at Aston Business School. With a deep background in Computer Science, Solanki has started to delve into the supply chain world, providing frameworks for traceability and open data.
In her talk below, she discusses the value of data and what it can add to transparency, provenance, consumer awareness, and compliance. FlSpace, a project in collaboration with Aston University and many more, is designed to help businesses share information with their affiliates. This can be used, for instance, to trace the provenance of meat, or the import and export of consumer goods.
