Current supply chain management (SCM) requires the control of physical and information flows in order to satisfy the customer, i.e. deliver the right product to the customer at the right place, at the right time, at the right price and at the lowest cost. SCM is inseparable from traceability which makes reliable the said flows, accelerates the transmission of information on these flows, allows to access a detailed knowledge of the movements, and makes the flows visible. In order to streamline and monitor, if possible, in real time and permanently these logistical processes, we propose the design and implementation of an Ontology-based traceability system based on an architectural model for the physical Internet using computing resources such as Cloud computing, Fog computing and Internet of Things (IoT) to achieve efficiency and sustainability goals. To evaluate our system, we were able to carry out all the queries that the user can express whether he is a customer, a supplier or a manager.
