In a typical SODAQ style prototype development project we allocated a team of 6 FTE for an entire year. In close co-operation with Bayer we collected the potential technologies to solve such a challenge and came up with groundbreaking insights and solutions. For example the biodegradable printed battery solution from Elmeric. And the new iSIM technology deployed by Vodafone.
As of 2020, the complexities of the supply chain have only become more prominent with the global network that most companies are operating within. Sure, technologies have facilitated most of this process, but with the amount of parties that may be involved in the development of a single product, it is no surprise that many companies still seek optimizations within the supply chain. Bayer is the world's largest pharmaceutical and life science company. Imagine the scale of packages that are both entering and leaving their warehouses on a day to day basis. With today's modern technology, tracking each package by scanning seems outdated.
