Utilization Of Blockchain Technology By Updf For Supply Chain Transparency And Traceability

Abstract: To sustain ethical sourcing practices, prevent the sale of counterfeit goods, and increase consumer confidence, organizations must provide transparency and traceability in their supply chains. This case study focuses on the Uganda People's Defense Forces (UPDF) and examines the creation and implementation of a blockchain-based application for improving supply chain transparency and traceability. The main goal is to look into how a blockchain application may enhance supply chain management, decrease corruption, and increase accountability in the UPDF's logistics and procurement procedures. The project will involve designing, creating, and assessing a blockchain-based application specifically catered to the needs and supply chain procedures of the UPDF. In order to provide transparency, immutability, and decentralized control, the app will use blockchain technology to record and verify each stage of the supply chain, from purchase through delivery. The investigation will take into account whether the UPDF has access to the infrastructure and training required to use blockchain technology. A mixed-methods approach will be used to combine quantitative data from transaction logs and supply chain records with qualitative data from stakeholder interviews and observations. The study will evaluate the app's effects on supply chain efficiency, transparency, and traceability as well as any risks and rewards of integrating blockchain technology into the UPDF's supply chain ecosystem. Finally, this technique seeks to advance knowledge of how blockchain technology might enhance supply chain management in governmental and military contexts by examining the adoption of a blockchain-based app within the UPDF's supply chain. The results will advise policymakers, procurement officers, and R researchers on the applicability of blockchain-based apps for boosting supply chain transparency. They will offer insights into the viability, effectiveness, and potential barriers of using blockchain solution
