The results of the specialized IT system from the SMART SC project enabled the creation of a DIN SPEC (PAS) for the “harmonization of enterprise-wide data communication in the container related supply chain via a data mediator”. For this purpose, a business plan was developed by a group of experts, and a workshop panel was formed which then adopted the business plan. Cooperative development within the workshop panel led to the initiation of DIN SPEC 66298, completed by the end of November 2015. A publication will follow under the publishers Beuth-Verlag. This project commissioned by DIN e.V. under the framework of an INS programme has recently won the 2015 DIN Prize for Innovation (german).
