EPCglobal Standards to enable Data Sharing within and across Enterprises
Devanand, India
Item relationships and the complex information flows required to manage objects in modern supply chains are increasingly being formalized through the efforts of EPCglobal (Electronic Product Code™) standards. The EPC provides a static ID which is stored in the RFID tag, providing a simple extension to the Universal Product Code (UPC), which bar code technology is based on. These standards allow organizations to move faster, provide richer information sources and increase the efficiency of trading networks.

EPCglobal Architecture Framework
Jaap de Jonge, Editor, Netherlands
The EPCglobal Architecture defines and includes a list of EPC-related roles and standards.
- EPCIS Capturing Application: Supervises the operation of the lower-level architectural elements and provides business context by coordinating with other sources of information involved in executing a particular business process step.
- EPCIS Accessing Application: Responsible for carrying out overall enterprise business processes aided by EPC-related data.
- EPCIS-enabled Repository: Records EPCIS-level events and makes them available for query by EPCIS Accessing Applications.
- Partner Application: Trading Partner systems that perform the same role as an EPCIS Accessing Application, but outside of the responding party’s network.
