The major supply chain challenges in countries with gold mining and gold supply chain are supply of low quality products , unreliable and uncertain lead times , inability of farms to maintain international standard , high transportation and violence by the local communities, fluctuation of international market prices etc. Energy, environmental protection authorities and other institutions should collaborate with mining firms to deal with environmental pollution and matters of inadequate compensation of the communities whose farm lands are destroyed due to mining to address unhealthy conflicts.

http://www.logility.com J. R. Simplot is one of the world’s leading agribusiness companies, with an integrated portfolio including phosphate mining, fertilizer manufacturing, farming, ranching, food processing, food brands, and other enterprises related to agriculture. On top of their complex agribusiness supply chain challenges, the company was facing the rollout of a major new facility on an aggressive timeframe. The supply chain team realized the time had come to go beyond home-grown supply chain management tools and adopt a comprehensive technology solution for their end-to-end S&OP process. They chose Logility because of the strength Voyager would bring to their demand planning, supply planning, manufacturing planning, and inventory optimization solutions. According J. R. Simplot’s Senior Director of Optimization, Logility's level of engagement and powerful solutions are the basis for a great supply chain partnership and a great enabler for growth.

John, welcome. Thank you. It's good to be here. Tell us a little bit about JR Simplot. JR Simplot's a large, private agribusiness company. We have interests in plant nutrition. That's probably our predominant business. I'm in The Food Group in North America, which sells primarily food service-related items into the food service market. We also have a little bit of retail. Then there's Simplot Australia, which is actually more of a branded play in Australia. And we have a plant sciences team, and a land and livestock team as well. What would you describe as your main business challenges today? Well, speaking for The Food Group, our main business challenge is that we operate pretty much in a mature market. And when you operate in a mature market, there's only a limited amount of ways, I guess, to improve your profitability. One is certainly improving your mix, and then the other main way is obviously controlling costs and making sure you operate efficiently. Did you come to a point in your development where you felt it was time for a new solution, and if so what were the trigger of that? What caused you to come to that decision at that time? What drove that decision was probably a lot of things. One is we needed to invest in new tools because they were coming end-of-life and were virtually unsupportable. Another is that we had a strategy that we were trying to accomplish, and the tools that we had that were existing weren't sufficient for the job. Sounds like, though, you were pretty sophisticated up to that point. You weren't totally immersed in manual processes, were you? You had some degree of automation going on there, right? We did. We had plenty of automation. The problem is it was homegrown, and it was fairly inflexible in terms of what we could accomplish with it. So we felt that it was necessary to go out and get some more what I would call industry standard or less homegrown tools in order to be able to not just manage our existing business, but manage the business as it grew, and as we moved into other areas. So why did you pick Logility? Well, we picked Logility for a variety of reasons. The first and foremost reason is their people impressed us. We had visits from probably three or four different teams of Logility people during the course of our research into which companies we wanted to use, and we found that they spoke our language, we found that they understood supply chain and demand planning extremely well, and we felt that because they implemented the solutions themselves, they'd have a higher degree of ownership that, from our perspective, was important. We view them as a very, very reliable vendor that's really gone to the mat to do a good implementation for us, and we view the relationship as quite strong. John, thank you so much for sharing the story of JR Simplot with us today. Thanks for being with us. You're welcome. I've been speaking with John Ball of the JR Simplot Company. Thank you very much for watching.

First I thought we should talk about where you can find lithium today. The truth is it’s likely on your body right now, you may be holding it in your hand, or you’re looking directly at it. But you might be surprised to know it’s also used in things like tools, aerospace equipment, military applications and backup storage for our Electric grid. And of course, Tesla’s and other electric cars // Looking to buy a Tesla S or X? Use our referral code and instantly receive $1,000 off and Free Supercharging! (limited) Get Started - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e9QapXri9iY // It is so good for batteries that 39% of all Lithium production goes towards battery production. So what is Lithium anyway? Lithium itself is a soft, silvery-white alkali metal. It is the lightest metal and the lightest solid element. Like all alkali metals, lithium is highly reactive and flammable. So this isn’t something you’d want just laying around your house. Especially if you have a toddler running around like I do... So Lithium is a metal so it must be mined right, like copper? Well, not exactly. It’s true lithium can be mined from rocks but mostly it’s found in brine pools. Lithium is also present in seawater but there aren’t any commercially viable methods of extracting it at this time As an aside when you see a meme floating around the internet showing a giant mine where lithium comes from, it’s a lie. As of 2017, most of the world's lithium production is in South America, where lithium-containing brine is extracted from underground pools and concentrated by solar evaporation. The standard extraction technique is to evaporate water from brine. Each batch takes from 18 to 24 months. With so much demand for lithium it’s a fair question to ask... Are Tesla and others doomed? Well…not really The US Geological Survey’s report for 2017 shows that "Worldwide lithium production increased by an estimated 12% in 2016 in response to increased lithium demand for battery applications. Production in Argentina increased nearly 60%, primarily owing to a new brine operation; the leading Argentine producer also increased production. A producer in Chile reported that its production rose by 20%. Two small Australian spodumene operations, one new and one inactive since 2013, planned to begin commercial concentrate production by year end. Worldwide lithium production capacity was reported to be 49,400 tons in 2015; capacity utilization was estimated to be 64% in 2015 and 71% in 2016. Based on average projections by producers and industry analysists of about 14% growth worldwide, consumption of lithium in 2016 is projected to be about 37,800 tons, up from 33,300 tons in 2015. So the trend is going up, but when you look at the overall picture you find that owing to continuing exploration, lithium resources have increased substantially worldwide. Identified lithium resources in the United States, from continental brines, geothermal brines, hectorite, oil field brines, and pegmatites, have been revised to 6.9 million tons. Identified lithium resources in other countries have been revised to approximately 40 million tons. Identified lithium resources in Argentina and Bolivia are about 9 million tons each and in major producing countries are Australia, more than 2 million tons; Chile, more than 7.5 million tons; and China, approximately 7 million tons. Canada’s lithium resources are about 2 million tons. Congo (Kinshasa), Russia, and Serbia have resources of about 1 million tons each. Lithium resources in Brazil and Mexico are approximately 200,000 tons each and Austria, and Zimbabwe have more than 100,000 tons each. Beyond just producing more lithium, companies like Tesla have focused on creating a closed-loop battery recycling program since as early as 2011. So while Tesla drivetrains are rated to go 1M miles, and the batteries will likely last to last north of 350K miles, once the cars do get turned in, Tesla isn’t going to just throw away those precious metals. If you’re an investor in companies reliant on lithium for their batteries such as Tesla, Apple, Google, or any other company making electronics today, you shouldn’t worry about the supply chain. We’ve got a long road ahead of us and probably by the time we need to worry about a shortage of Lithium we’ll have a new way to make batteries that are even better. // Join Our Community on Patreon!

The SCM is the backbone of E- commerce. Supply Chain Management means coordinating, scheduling , controlling ,production, inventories and deliveries of products and services to customers. A supply chain is the connected network of individuals, organizations, resources, activities and technologies involved in the manufacture and sale of a product or service. A supply chain starts with the delivery of raw material from a supplier to a manufacturer, and ends with the delivery of the finished product or service to the end consumer. SCM oversees each touch point of a company's product or service, from initial creation to final sale. With so many places along the supply chain that can add value through efficiencies or lose value through increased expenses, proper SCM can increase revenues, decrease costs and impact a company's bottom line. Supply chain management (SCM) is the active streamlining of a business' supply-side activities to maximize customer value and gain a competitive advantage in the marketplace. SCM represents an effort by suppliers to develop and implement supply chains that are as efficient and economical as possible. Supply chains cover everything from production to product development. Series of activities involved in the production or processing of a product or of a service Set of activities involved before the creation or production of a product or the kind of services to be rendered by the business firm to the public at large, or the specific market it wants to serve. According to Chase, Jacobs and Aquilano, et al it is how organizations (suppliers, manufacturers, distributors, and customers) are linked together. Evolving supply process. Total system approach to managing the entire flow of information, materials, and services from raw-material suppliers through factories and warehouses to the end customer.

In illegal mining, there is a high incidence of human trafficking for forced labour, including a system in which debt bondage is achieved by providing workers with advances or start-up capital. Workers in the mining sector are employed under extremely dangerous conditions, including exposure to toxic substances and severe illnesses, and that women and children tend to be more vulnerable to exploitation. The challenges of due diligence in for example, the gold trading process are faced at every point in the supply chain; from ensuring that gold has been extracted not only legally, but also complying with international human rights and labour standards and /or does not fuel armed conflicts, to retail buyers taking the sourcing of their gold into consideration. While the World Gold Council Conflict-Free Standard is designed to ensure gold producers mine responsibly, it is also very important that the whole supply chain is sustainable and does not contribute to conflict. For instance, the London Bullion Market Association (LBMA) – the international trade association that represents the market for gold and silver bullion – has developed Responsible Gold Guidance standards for refiners that lay out due-diligence processes that refiners need to follow, in line with the OECD Guidance on Responsible Supply Chains of Minerals from Conflict-Affected areas. What are the most promising practices to eradicate human trafficking from the supply chains within the mining industry, including gold and other minerals? How does labour exploitation in the mining industry relate to other forms of human trafficking and illicit trade? What laws specifically address human trafficking related to the mining industry and where can improvements be made to further create public policy? And how can academia assist in research around this critical industry? This webinar will focused on these questions and more in a two-hour discussion.
With rapid globalization, the world is getting smaller, but supply chains are getting longer. How can businesses ensure ethical production, free from child labour and supportive of decent work for adults, in this rapidly changing environment? How can consumers react to the risk that children may have been involved in the production of the food we eat, the clothes we wear, the consumer products we use? There are no easy answers to these questions, but check out this short video for an introduction to the topic that will raise awareness and stimulate discussion.

https://www.udemy.com/blockchain-for-business-the-new-industrial-revolution/?couponCode=YOUTUBE Bitcoin and cryptocurrency mining explained with the the Byzantine Generals Problem. The Byzantine Generals problem was first introduced in a computer science paper published in 1982. The problem discussed in the paper is that reliable computer systems must be able to function effectively in the presence of faulty components that may send conflicting information to different parts of the system. This issue is even more acute when we talk about decentralized computer networks. Imagine the following thought experiment: The Byzantine army has surrounded an enemy city. The army is organized into several units. Each unit is commanded by a general and they all need to come up with a coordinated plan of action. However, they are located away from each other and the only means to communicate among themselves is via messages. To make things more complicated, one or more of the generals are possibly traitors. The presence of disloyal generals means that misleading messages could be sent aiming to disrupt any coordinated plan of action, be it attack or retreat. To find a successful solution to this conundrum, the Byzantine army needs to find its path to coordinated action, one way or another. To achieve this, the Byzantine army needs an algorithm that works effectively towards a coordinated outcome where the loyal generals follow it and the traitors don’t. Now that you are familiar with the problem, let’s see its solution. It is called the Byzantine Fault Tolerance algorithm. Over the years, there have been several proposed theoretical solutions involving game theory and math. The first practical implementation of Byzantine Fault Tolerance algorithm came with the Bitcoin’s Proof-of-Work. In this case the “generals” are nodes on the Bitcoin network, also known as “miners”. A network node is a connection point that can receive, create, store and send data across a network. In other words, nodes are the connected dots that make up a network. To simplify, think of it in the following way. In the image we traditionally use to depict a blockchain, every single computer is a separate node. They are all connected and can receive, create, store, and send data to each other. In the context of the Byzantine Fault Tolerance algorithm, the important concept to grasp is that these mining nodes start from the assumption that nobody else on the network can be trusted. Proof-of-Work secures network consensus even in the presence of non-compliant nodes. That is, even if there are some Byzantine generals who are not acting in the army’s best interest, coordinated action can still be achieved. Let’s see how this mechanism works in Bitcoin. As we all know by now, Bitcoin is a peer-to-peer network where all activities are done by its users through appropriate software and hardware. These activities include making transactions, receiving transactions, and verifying and transmitting transactions. Now, this is where we need to introduce the concept of “mining”, which many of you have probably heard. Mining is an activity, carried out by network participants, which involves Proof-of-Work and results in generating new coins as a reward for the miner who successfully did this Proof-of-Work first for each new block.

June 1, 2018 – “The idea behind Cobalt Blockchain is pretty simple. We target high-scale cobalt exploration in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. We will do metals trading to generate early cash flow empowering local communities and supporting ethical sourcing. We will use blockchain technology to transform the mineral supply chain.” states Samuel Peralta, Special Advisor for Technology and Blockchain and a Director of Cobalt Blockchain Inc. (TSXV: COBC), in a recent presentation at the 7th Annual InvestorIntel Summit – Buds, Batteries & Blockchain 2018. Samuel Peralta: We are Cobalt Blockchain. We basically straddle 2 of the 3 subject matters of this summit. I was just wondering how we could sneak cannabis in to make it 3, but we are going to keep it this way. Lance Hooper is our President and CEO and I am on the board of directors. We are COBC on the Venture Exchange. The idea behind Cobalt Blockchain is pretty simple. We target high-scale cobalt exploration in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. We will do metals trading to generate early cash flow empowering local communities and supporting ethical sourcing. We will use blockchain technology to transform the mineral supply chain. There were many questions this morning in the blockchain panel as to what the next level of blockchain will be. We all know about the cryptocurrency applications and about the Fintech applications. My best bet is that the next area of “disruption” for blockchain is going to be in the supply chain. The company is founded on a couple of principles. This is the management team. We have got folks who have got backgrounds in the cobalt business and the mining business. Most of these folks have been in the DRC for 12 years with active trading for the last 4 years. They do have actual on-the-ground experience in the DRC, which is rare. Lance Hooper, our President who you saw in the panel this morning, in addition to being one of those lead of Belaire Mining, the trading company in the DRC, also was a founder and a CEO of CertaPay, which was the first email direct bank to bank money transfer as well as other technologies. I am down there. I am the Special Advisor for Technology and Blockchain. My background was in physics and the application of high technology to resource firms so working with Nobel Mineral right now using AI applications, a graphene technology company mining graphite using the blockchain as well. It turns out that supply chain is a very interesting application. There are two parts to our premise, the cobalt part and the blockchain part. I was not sure if this was the right name. We had a big debate about whether we were going to do something different. Cobalt Blockchain pretty much captures what we stand for. Cobalt, as you have heard from many people at this conference, is one of the keys to our battery-based future. Cobalt demand is rising due to EV batteries. No matter what Elon Musk is saying this morning he still has to use about 4½ kilograms of cobalt in his batteries. Even if he goes forward, the Chinese and others are pretty far behind and will be seeing cobalt usage for a long time from now. It forms efficient electrode materials and helps stored power last longer that is the reason for the use of cobalt. Cobalt is being used in a number of applications including catalysts, hard metals, magnets, but if you notice usage in batteries is about 50%. That is quite a large share. There is a looming cobalt supply deficit…to access the complete presentation, click here Disclaimer: Cobalt Blockchain Inc. is an advertorial member of InvestorIntel Corp.

As the president of Business Laboratory, a company that performs scientific simulations for businesses and governments, George Danner needs a program capable of solving complex problems. Because he simulates everything from airline routes and supply chains to flu pandemics and business processes, he needs a tool capable of quickly computing statistics, optimization, and graphics functions. Danner and the Business Laboratory team use Mathematica for every project. It enables them to compute complex calculations with great speed, work with large data sets (including unstructured data sets), and create sophisticated visualizations for communicating with their audience, which often includes company executives. In addition to bringing speed, power, and flexibility to each simulation, Mathematica offers integration with many data sources to help Danner quickly build prototypes, significantly enhancing profitability for his clients. "It's really the perfect environment for doing serious work in technical computing," says Danner.
