Abstract: The objective of this paper is to propose a generic architecture framework for an activities monitoring system capable of providing real-time access to critical data and performance indicators for agricultural field operations. It is based on an innovative enhancement of the Business Activity Monitoring (BAM) systems used mainly in the industrial context. The proposed framework architecture has been tested with a specific and real-life harvesting example case. The premise is that agricultural field logistics operations are viewed as a challenging application and development target for emerging and innovative decision-support systems.
