Fujitsu’s German unit revealed how IOTA’s [MIOTA] Tangle technology could be implemented for documenting product quality in the manufacturing space. Fujitsu had already partnered with IOTA to work on supply chain management solutions using the blockchain.
Fujitsu CE on Friday tweeted the proof-of-concept for its latest audit trail technology. According to the concept, IOTA would serve as an “immutable data storage medium” to enable audit trails in supply chains and industrial production.

The tweet, in German, translates to – “Product quality is a critical factor for the success of the manufacturing industry. Fujitsu shows how product quality with IOTA is documented.”
According to the presentation, the audit trails will help improve quality management. It also prevents security breaches, data corruption or fraud on account of being cryptographically secure.
“Fujitsu is well-equipped to help roll out IOTA as the new protocol standard as we are experts in both IT services and the manufacturing of IT products,” said Leopold Sternberg, program manager at Industry 4.0 Competence Center at the Japanese IT firm.
What’s next for Fujitsu, IOTA?
The IT firm plans to engage with the manufacturing and automotive sectors to explore use-cases for the IOTA-based innovation.
The company also plans to expand into identity and access management by combining its PalmSecure Palm Vein Pattern Recognition Technology and Tangle.
Tangle is a distributed ledger technology (DLT) where there is no concept of blocks. Basically, the technology involves transactions that are linked like a web tangle, instead of being grouped into blocks and stored in sequential chains. Tangle is highly scalable, fast, secure and completely fee-free.
Fujitsu has been working with IOTA on exploring use-cases for its technology in the manufacturing space. According to the company’s website, it is the next-generation DLT, as it offers scalable technology specifically designed for the IoT.
Tangle can be deployed to ensure the use of original components and for warranty management in supply chain management, among other potential applications, the IT services provider added.
