Key Factors for Information Dissemination on Communicating Products and Fixed Databases
Integration of intelligent products carrying their own information is more and more present nowadays. In recent years, some authors argued on the usage of such products for the Supply Chain Management Industry. Indeed, a multitude of informational vectors take place in such environments like fixed databases or manufactured products on which one is able to embed significant proportion of data. By considering distributed database systems, one can allocate specific data fragments to the product in order to manage its own evolution. The chapter aims at analyzing the Supply Chain performance according to different strategies of information distribution between manufactured products and fixed databases. The purpose is to determine the key factors which lead to improve information distribution performance in term of time properties.
