TLIX9986X Establish blockchain in a supply chain  

Modification History

Release 1. This is the first release of this unit of competency in the TLI Training Package.

Application

This unit of competency describes the skills and knowledge required to establish blockchain in a supply chain. It includes assessing readiness for blockchain, developing blockchain strategy, implementing and managing blockchain, managing change associated with blockchain and reviewing and reporting on blockchain.

The digitisation of transactions and data using blockchain offers supply chain organisations the ability to implement and monitor their contract management, traceability, transparency, authenticity, monitoring and compliance programs.

Blockchain is a decentralised, shared, immutable database of transactions that uses consensus mechanisms to operate. Blockchain networks can be public with anyone able to join and see any transaction that happens. A private (permissioned) blockchain, that restricts who can access the network, is required when working with supply chains. Participants in the supply chain using blockchain will determine what data is seen by whom.

The unit is applicable to those with management or team leadership responsibilities within a supply chain.

No licensing, legislative or certification requirements apply to this unit at the time of publication.

  1. Overall this is very poorly framed and lacks reality with job design (in the future). It mixes procedural (SC) and technical (IT). I would removed Element 1 all together for simplicity and relevance.

    Element 3 has components (3.2, 3.3, 3.4) more IT dept than SCReference

  2. This unit addresses current and future skills gap regarding use of blockchain within a supply chain context. Establishing/implementation of systems or processes within an organisation are typically conducted by project teams (may be a mix of internal resources and external consultants with various areas of expertise). I see this unit being of value to Management/team leads and project team.Reference
