What benefits does Tau-Chain add over conventional solutions?


Supply Chain Management (SCM) software can offer tremendous value to any company that relies on the smooth planning and execution of related operations to achieve long-term profitability and maintain a solid competitive edge. That’s why more and more organizations are purchasing and implementing supply chain applications. Here are some of the key benefits that SCM software delivers:

Improved Supply Chain Network
Supply chain management software provides complete, 360-degree visibility across the entire supply chain network. It allows users to monitor the status of all activities across all suppliers, production plants, storage facilities, and distribution centers. This enables more effective tracking and management of all related processes, from the ordering and acquisition of raw materials, to manufacturing and shipping of finished goods to customers or retail outlets. The status of mission-critical activities can be tracked at all times, and potential inefficiencies...

Turing complete languages are undecidable: it can be proved that some algorithm cannot always work as expected for all possible inputs. I believe that most of these problems have to do with deciding if another algorithm can or cannot do something.

An undecidable (programming language) grammar means that you cannot be certain what the meaning of a given program (source code) is just by looking at the code. Look at the answers of this question for examples.

A classic example of undecidability is the halting problem:

In computability theory, the halting problem is the problem of determining, from a description of an arbitrary computer program and an input, whether the program will finish running or continue to run forever.

For completeness also read this, especially the "Mathematical theory" section.

In contrast a decidable programming language can mathematically prove that a program will always have the expected results; e.g. a smart contract...

Whether produced via conventional or renewable methods, the advantages of natural gas as an alternative fuel include its domestic availability, established distribution network, relatively low cost, and emissions benefits.

Natural gas produced via renewable methods offers additional benefits. Renewable natural gas (RNG) is essentially biogas—the gaseous product of the decomposition of organic matter—that has been processed to purity standards. Capturing biogas from landfills and livestock operations reduces emissions by preventing methane release into the atmosphere. Methane is 25 times stronger than carbon dioxide as a greenhouse gas. Additionally, producing biogas through anaerobic digestion reduces odors and produces nutrient-rich liquid fertilizer.

RNG and conventional natural gas, and must be compressed (CNG) or liquefied (LNG) for use in vehicles. Like any alternative fuel, there are some considerations to take into account when contemplating the use of natural...

2. Safety and quality products

The pressure on manufacturers to produce high-quality products that are safe is an increasing challenge. The number of product recall cases is growing each day. It can damage a company’s reputation and is expensive to its bottom line.

Since 2008, a number of analysts have forecasted the demise of long-term supply chain relationships because of increased competition within the supply chains for thinner slices of the margin pie.

Their premise: As markets become tighter, energy and raw materials prices increase, and as working capital becomes harder to procure, supply chain collaboration will suffer in a Darwinian struggle for profitability scraps. Yet two reassuring developments are undermining that premise.

First, most supply chains are finding enormous amounts of waste, which they are c trimming away to keep working margins. Second, supply chain partners are finding innovative ways to make collaboration work for mutual benefit in previously unexplored ways. As a result, while a number of supply chain partnerships have deteriorated over the past eight business quarters or so, most have survived. In fact, many companies credit their own survival largely to their working relationships with buyers and...

In several of my articles on

supply chain strategy

, I have emphasized that capabilities are the origin of all competitive advantages. So what must a capability deliver to create such competitive advantage and contribute towards achieving the goals of the

business strategy


In simple terms, a firm will have a competitive advantage, if its products are superior or if it provides superior customer service and so on.

If the advantage comes from superiority, then what makes something superior to another? What creates superiority in a product or service or process? Let us review the question from the point of view of

, assuming that superior supply chain processes will create competitive advantage for a company. Between two business processes enabling an identical function, when is one business process superior? I contend that a business process is superior to another when it has at least one of the following advantages over the...

If you are searching for a way to gain an edge on your competition, consider one of the business world's most valuable tools: the value chain analysis.

Value chain analysis relies on the basic economic principle of advantage — companies are best served by operating in sectors where they have a relative productive advantage compared to their competitors. Simultaneously, companies should ask themselves where they can deliver the best value to their customers.

To conduct a value chain analysis, the company begins by identifying each part of its production process and identifying where steps can be eliminated or improvements can be made. These improvements can result in either cost savings or improved productive capacity. The end result is that customers derive the most benefit from the product for the cheapest cost, which improves the company's bottom line in the long run.
