BUSINESS PROCESS RE-ENGINEERING IN SUPPLY CHAINS EXAMINING THE CASE OF THE EXPANDING HALAL INDUSTRY

Abstract

Due to several issues arising in the rapidly-expanding Halal industry, among them the production of non-genuine or contaminated products and meats, there is a need to develop effective solutions for ensuring authenticity and quality. This paper proposes the specification of a formalized supply chain framework for the production and monitoring of food and products. The latter enforces high-level quality of automated monitoring as well as shorter production cycles through enhanced coordination between the actors and organizations involved. Our proposal is guided by business process support to ensure quality and efficiency of product development and delivery. It moreover meets the requirements of industrial standards by adopting the Capability Maturity Model Integration’s highest process maturity level through establishing quantitative process-improvement objectives, proposing the integrated support of engineering processes, enforcing synchronization and coordination, drastic monitoring and exception handling. We then delve into some of the important technologies from the implementation point-of-view and align it with the formalized Halal framework. An Information Technology support instantiation is proposed leading to a use case scenario with technology identification.
