Apollo is an open source, experimental Inventory Visibility (IV) application. The IV applications enable both suppliers and customers to have a Web view and to manage activities that affect the customer inventory based on a certain inventory replenishment process. The type of the replenishment process that is supported by the Apollo application is electronic Kanban (eKanban). The motivation to explore new development approaches follows from the need to address high costs in cross-enterprise business application integration efforts, particularly in complex industrial supply chains . The primary direction of exploration in developing the Apollo IV application was to assess the new Semantic Web-based technology for data messaging interface in the context of the newly proposed semantic mediation architecture within the ATHENA project . In addition, we are interested in how the Open Source technology can support our development.
