Is multichain suitable for supply chain management/provenance?

+1 vote
I am going to start a project for supply chain management for car parts and would like some help.

Would multichain be a suitable platform for doing this? A combination of Private chain and custom assets?

I think the part would need to have a unique characteristic (RFID for example) to help with the validation.

The bit that confuses me is the actual linking of the part to the asset on the chain. I think its done by hashing the RFID to the on chain asset which is managed by a PKI. Would this process be done by the front end of my project reading the RFID then running a hash function?

In general, yes, MultiChain is well suited for this.

If you want to identify a MultiChain asset with a particular part in the real world, that is something you would indeed manage at the application level. MultiChain assets can have custom fields which you can use to store any type of information about that asset.
