Learning by doing

SMARTYS is our smart contracts simulation. It’s a training and workshop module, supported by a working blockchain application. The simulation is based on an actual use case from the logistics Industry.

The module is suited for non-technical people working in organizations with little to no background on blockchain and/or smart contracts. The objective of the module is to learn the basics of smart contracts and how this new technology can be effectively applied in business processes.

It is an interactive business simulation where the attendees work with the blockchain application and other materials. They simulate an actual transport of goods and financial settlements. The workshop module also includes a general introduction to blockchain and smart contracts, as well as other real-life examples of the use of smart contracts. The length of the full workshop is 3 hours.

The workshop is designed around an example of a logistical process, making it specifically suitable for people working in this business sector. However, people from other sectors will also find this workshop module very suitable.

Simplification

SMARTYS is based on a simplification of a real use case. However, to make a business simulation effective for learning purposes, we use a simplified version of the business process, focusing on the role of the smart contracts. By creating a simplified environment everybody is able to understand to additional value of smart contracts.

Effective in 2 ways

SMARTYS can be used in two ways: it’s both a training tool and can serve as a blueprint for a proof of oncept of a live business application.

Training

Based on a logistics use case the participants in the training will experience how smart contracts work. They will learn the principles of blockchain, tokens and smart contracts. They will play a role in the simulation using various materials. They will use our blockchain (Ethereum) application and other tools like Etherscan and Metamask. Learning this way is interactive and the most efficient way of learning new technologies.

Blueprint for a PoC

Since SMARTYS is an actual working blockchain application, it is a perfect starting point for a PoC. The makers of SMARTYS have in depth technical and non-technical knowledge of business process design, blockchain, smart contracts and IT architecture. They can support business process owners to redesign their processes and effectively apply smart contracts.

We have a step-by-step method to support organisations in designing and applying smart contracts.
