Manufacturing: eccenca leads development of SCORVoc and heads APICS Supply-Chain Council working group to develop Supply-Chain 4.0 templates
eccenca, a leader in semantic data integration and lifting, has collaborated with Infineon and Fraunhofer IAIS over the past two years in developing a semantic data model designed to disambiguate data used within the Supply Chain Operations Reference Model KPI structure.
