BIO

ABOUT ME

As a curious and entrepreneurial supply chain professional, I am fascinated by the dynamics of international supply chains. I like to solve complex, interdisciplinary (re-)design problems by applying innovative methods and technologies. At the University of Twente, I am currently leading research projects in the position of principal researcher. My professional goal is to build bridges between science and supply chains and help companies become smarter and more competitive.

About The Publication
Disruptions and exceptions are an important source of risks in logistics, as far as the planning of transportation services is concerned. Failing to rapidly react on and handle such events may lead to serious depreciation of the transported cargo and reputation damage. The Internet of Things seems to be the technology capable of providing the tools required to detect exceptions nearly real-time. However, currently, there is little research on how to enhance the detected exceptions with related information from internal or external sources. Furthermore, most exception detection capabilities rely on experience and not much research exist on how to improve the accuracy of using third-party knowledge. In this paper, we propose a reference architecture for situation-aware logistics. The architecture specification follows the key principles derived from an extensive requirements analysis, the state of the art literature, and the ideas promoted by the Industrial Data Space initiative. The proposed architecture has been instantiated and tested by means of a prototype designed for the case of temperature-controlled transportation services.

About The Publication
The aim of this doctoral consortium paper is to introduce my doctoral research proposal in the field of enterprise computing. The scientific problem that I address in my research is the limited usage of real-time data, originating from Industry 4.0 (I4.0) technologies (e.g. smart IoT devices and sensors), by Small-and Medium sized Enterprises (SMEs) in the logistics industry. I argue that the development of an industry platform for real-time data streaming and analytics would allow SMEs to benefit from such data and help them streamline their operational processes and overall performance. The main contribution of my research is a reference architecture for such a platform, geared for the needs of SMEs, and incorporating: 1) a logistics canonical data model to collect and harmonize I4.0 data, 2) an automatic schema matcher to map SME data to the logistics canonical data model, 3) autonomous data mining agents, 4) an adoption strategy based on the concept of intelligence amplification and 5) key performance indicators to measure adoption effects on operational and decisional performance.

About The Publication
In logistics, questions as “Where is my container?” and “When does my container arrive?” can often not be answered with sufficient precision, which restricts the ability of logistics service providers to be efficient. Since logistics is complex and often involves multiple transportation modes and carriers, improving efficiency and saving costs in the supply chain requires communication between the different parties and the usage of real-time data is critical. Currently, logistics service providers (LSPs) use real-time data to a very limited extent, mainly for tracking the progress of a specific part of a given shipment. This data is retrieved manually from a number of websites and sharing with other actors is not even considered. This leads to lack of end-to end visibility and delays in planning. This research proposes an architecture and a common data model for an integration platform that allows the automated collection of real time container tracking data enabling LSPs to plan more efficient. Currently, there is no common data model available that contains all the information required and enables LSPs to track their shipments real-time. The common data model is designed via a bottom-up approach using results of interviews, observations at different logistics service providers, analyses of open data on websites, and serves the information needs of the business processes involving such data. The model is also validated against industry standards. Based on the proposed architecture a prototype was built that is tested in real operating conditions with a fourth party logistics company.

This project develops the Logistics Data Space (LDS) for small- and medium sized enterprises, which allows logistics companies to participate in digital ecosystems for efficient collaboration and new services. LDS consists of a Connector Store, offering connectors to realize data exchange between heterogeneous ICT environments, and an Interoperability Simulator, to explore collaboration opportunities prior to implementation.

AUTONOMOUS LOGISTICS MINERS FOR SMES

DESCRIPTION OF THE PROJECT

This research project aims to increase the competitive power of the Dutch logistics sector, by providing small- and medium sized enterprises with intelligent data mining agents, that can perform the most common data mining functions, and require minimal supervision and domain knowledge from the human employee.

SYNCHROMODAL IT

DESCRIPTION OF THE PROJECT

The main objective of this project is to facilitate efficient, reliable, and sustainable logistics services and to strengthen the Dutch logistics sector through the design of a synchromodal logistics network model and integrated service platform and the development of related planning and scheduling policies, and of decision support through serious gaming.
