EPCglobal Standards to enable Data Sharing within and across Enterprises
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.
