The K SYS (K Systems) are DApps that live on the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM). The first of them, K SYS 1, is an AS/EN 9100 Compliant, Production & Quality Management System (QMS) set of dApps (suite) meant for the Aerospace Industry. It is actually a set of Decentralized Applications used to version, store, secure, certify and track all the data regarding the industrial production of a car, an aircraft or a satellite module. Forever.
K SYS 1 is effectively working in High Precision Manufacturing of Aero Space Components for Ingegneria Aerospaziale Torinese (IAT) S.r.l. in Turin, Italy, since the second quarter of 2017. The alpha and beta testings took place in 2016.
K-ATIA (K Systems – Aided Three-dimensional Interactive Application) will become an official module of KSYS 1 at the end of 2019.
How did we achieve that?
K SYS 1’ implementation of the ISO 9001 Quality Standards is achieved using multiple Smart Contracts that are linked to each other and that use the only decentralized consensus algorithm capable of meeting the performance requirements of applications on the blockchain, Delegated Proof of Stake (DPOS).
Each step and document involved in the production flow of the parts (from the first proposal review till delivery) is permanently stored on the blockchain and IPFS, at the end of the process the parts are automatically compliant with the ISO quality standards, since the completion of every step is mandatory in order to move to the next one.
K SYS 1 uses the KSYS ERC20 token to reward the suppliers that have submitted the parts, and/or the documents required by the project, and rely on a Clustered IPFS implementation to store the actual data (transport documents, drawings, emails, CAD files, invoices, CAM part programs etc.), K SYS 1 has a built-in penalty system for the suppliers or workers whom do not deliver on time, at the requested rate or at the required quality level. Every action is recorded on the Blockchain.
“Before the first test implementation of KSYS 1 within our infrastructures, I didn’t know what to really expect from it… I had been working in the Aerospace industry, and specifically on the ISO 9001 Standards aspects of it, since the early 70’s, and never came across something similar to it.
At the beginning, I thought this was just another attempt to introduce an additional licensing and maintenance cost into our budget, I did not know anything about this new Blockchain technology or any other weird application Mickael LEVY was talking about…
But I knew two things: K Systems had always been providing my company with what was needed, at the highest quality levels AND that the Industry needed at least an attempt to make things easier for what was regarding the AS/EN 9100 Quality Standards implementation.
What I can state now, nearly 2 years after I saw and used by myself, for the first time, KSYS 1, is that we will not switch back to the old Quality and Production procedures and Management Systems!
In fact, many times in the past, we had trouble in combining – well and all together – the construction of a batch of high precision flight components, the respect of our internal policies, the machinery workload, the human resources assigment, the traceability of the parts and many other production and delivery aspects… All this simply meaning: We had dfficulties complying to the AS/EN 9100 Quality Standards, in fact, these required standards are difficult to achieve even for big multinationals as all sectors of the company must know what the others are doing, how they do it and when they do it… As a result, many times we did not know where in the production chain the parts were, which milling machine was busy and with what, what the latest revision of a document or drawing was, where the dimensional control reports were stored, who was working on what, etcetera etcera… Oftenly, we had delays delivering the components and/or the parts were returned to us as they did not fully comply to the ISO 9001 standards.
Today, with K SYS 1, I just scan a QR code on my screen or on a label and I know everything about that work order, that part, even where the material to build it originally came from, at what price, how much of it is left… Everything! We just deliver on time (or even earlier), the parts don’t come back anymore… Actually, the only things that came back from our customers since the K SYS 1 implementation, were compliments and commendations!”
K SYS 1 can operate on private blockchains and private IPFS clusters of nodes.
K SYS 1 is based upon:
- The ETHEREUM blockchain
- ETHEREUM Smart Contracts
- The «InterPlanetary File System» (IPFS)
- An enormous amount of experience in the IT security business and the Aero Spatial, Automotive and EN 9001 quality, design and production fields.
Every implementation of KSYS 1 is custom tailored, as every company has different internal administrative and production policies and procedures.
K SYS 1 will keep its developing open, K Systems LTD will teach students from all around the World (that will benefit of KSYS Token bounties for their work), how to further improve this set of dApps. We will also hold AS/EN 9100 specific courses within our K-AMPUS Project!
If you are interested in this product or you know a Company that needs this kind of AS/EN 9100 Quality Management System, fill the form below and get in touch with us OR wait for Q4, 2018, when the KSYS Shop will open!
All of the K Systems LTD products and services are only purchasable with KSYS Tokens. The total supply will not be increased and KSYS Token holders will keep their coins as they have a real value within our ever-growing K-Economy Model, and, as we all know, if “Holders HODL, the value increases”, making it interesting for everyone to adopt the KSYS Token as their Favorite Crypto Currency!
