Digital Trust

In the ultra-smart Society 5.0 era,
we generate Trust for supply chains through
"Digital Trust" to create a secure future.

Digitalized Supply Chains

In recent years, amid a lack of technicians and intensifying price competition, incidents of fraudulent practices have become a serious social issue.

At the same time, with the progress of digitalization, producers and consumers now exchange data in real time, allowing them to share status information. This is accelerating the complexity of supply chains and globalization.

Due to this significant change in the flow of data, there is a burgeoning demand for quality assurance of products and services, making the trustworthiness of supply chains (Trust) ever more important.

The Trustworthy Society Hitachi Aims to Establish

Hitachi aims to achieve Trustworthy supply chains by merging the latest digital technologies, products,
and know-how at manufacturing sites with a focus on the social infrastructure field.
The “Digital Trust” we have created is provided not only to producers, but also to consumers in order to contribute to
achieving a secure and comfortable ultra-smart society.

Hitachi's technology for Achieving a Trustworthy Supply Chain

Trust technology that uses the business know-how of factories, logistics, and retail businesses.
Visualization of correctly executed production activities on supply chains generates Trust.
By connecting this mechanism, we aim to achieve a Trustworthy supply chain.

Conformance Validation This validates whether production activities were performed correctly as stated in the corresponding regulations.
Digital
Evidence
This evidence is used to explain to a third party that production activities are performed correctly.
Trust Store This stores the Trust of companies and is connected via the supply chain.

A part of this technology development is executed by
"SIP-CPS (Cross-ministerial Strategic Innovation Promotion Program - Cyber Physical Security) for IoT Society project" (managed by NEDO) of the SIP, which is advanced by the Cabinet Office.

The Future that Digital Trust Creates

Quality Improvement by Analyzing at Manufacturing and Production Sites

To execute Conformance Validation, we use sensor, video, and other such information, to confirm that production processes are carried out exactly according to procedures and to confirm the state of materials. This results in quality improvement.

Research and Development Related to Trust

A Trustworthy Society Conceived from People's Changing Connections

When the way people connect changes, their values and the services they demand also change.
Adopting a three-pronged approach, we used Vision Design* to think about
what "Shape of trust" is generated in a trustworthy society.
See how people live in a trustworthy society.

*
Vision Design is Hitachi's activity for design relative to envisioning the future. It displays a future design as a springboard for discussion to explore Hitachi's role in the systems that support society and asks what those systems should look like.
