Abstract

Builds on earlier work in developing the concept of information supply chains and the ways in which it can assist industrial organisations. Presents practical results that stem from the conceptual modeling and simulation environment. Asserts that the ATLAS “A push Technology Leveraging Action for ‘Slingshot”’ initiative, which is already successfully employed in the financial services sector, would be ideal in many other sectors. Provides a case study of a pilot application of real time management of operations in an industrial enterprise using Slingshot in a company producing flexible packaging materials, Chatzopoulos S.A.
