    2. 2. Highlights of UID Approach <ul><li>Capstone UID Initiative </li></ul><ul><li>Item Unique Identification (IUID) </li></ul><ul><li>International Engagement and Impact </li></ul><ul><li>Opportunities </li></ul><ul><li>Next Steps </li></ul><ul><li>Challenges </li></ul>
    3. 3. UID: Capstone Initiative <ul><li>Prescribes the vision to efficiently and effectively manage resources using globally unique identification of: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>People </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Personal Property (i.e., tangible items) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Real Property (e.g., buildings) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Organizational Entities </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Sites or Locations </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Program </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Prescribes rules and assigns responsibilities for a process of uniquely identifying tangible entities, their attributes and their relationships </li></ul>
    4. 4. Unique Identification – The Capstone View <ul><li>Related ISO UID Initiative </li></ul><ul><ul><li>ISO 15459 proposal describes uniqueness for transportation units, location and item unique identification </li></ul></ul><ul><li>US DoD Vision of UID </li></ul>Time Line 2007-2008 2006-2007 2005- 2006 2002-2005 Enterprise Visibility Accountability Value Organization Program Location Status AT&L/P&R PA&E AT&L CJCS/P&R/AT&L Property (AT&L) Real Property Personal Property AT&L People (P&R) Person Role P&R CJCS/P&R/AT&L Formal Ad Hoc Budget ACAT Absolute Relative Condition Disposition IUID RPUID FMID EDIPI Ability to describe Ability to value and account
    5. 5. DoD Vision for Item Unique Identification (IUID) DoD, its coalition partners, and industry efficiently and effectively manage individual tangible items of Government property with: Item identification and tracking can enhance Configuration Management, Systems Engineering, Logistics Support and Operational Planning <ul><li>near real-time situational awareness </li></ul><ul><li>using globally unique item identification </li></ul><ul><li>enabled by fast and accurate automatic data capture </li></ul>
    6. 6. Principles <ul><li>Create data once, reuse many times </li></ul><ul><li>Embrace standards, but enable independence </li></ul><ul><li>Use master data sources </li></ul><ul><li>Every commodity area is unique </li></ul><ul><li>Goal : Standard master data set for finance, acquisition, maintenance, transportation and supply </li></ul>

UID Equivalents <ul><li>Criteria for UID Equivalents </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Must contain an enterprise identifier which is assigned by a registration or controlling authority </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Must uniquely identify an individual item within an enterprise identifier, product or part number </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Must have an existing Data Identifier (DI) or Application Identifier (AI) listed in ANSI MH10, Data Identifier and Application Identifier Standard </li></ul></ul><ul><li>DoD Recognized UID Equivalents </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Global Individual Asset Identifier (GIAI) EAN.UCC (AI:8004) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Global Returnable Asset Identifier (GRAI) EAN.UCC (AI: 8003) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) ISO 3779 (DI:I) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Electronic Serial Number (ESN, for cellular telephones only) TIA (DI:22S) </li></ul></ul>
    10. 10. Using Item Unique Identification (IUID) for Serial Management? In today’s world, retail use of 1-D barcodes is mainstream and indispensable. Some items do have serial numbers. Serial numbers are unique, but not outside of their enterprise or commodity – the serial number assigned by XYZ Manufacturer could be the same as one assigned by ABC Company. Two identical cans of Coke from the same bottling plant will show the same data on the Universal Product Code (UPC). By combining enterprise identification and serialization, a globally unique item identifier is created that differentiates every item from every other item. Each item has its own globally unique item identifier (UII). MFR 0CVA5 SER 674A36458
    11. 11. Automatic Identification Technologies - an Important Enabler DOCVA5674A36458 UII can contain up to 78 characters AIT enables error-free data transfer !
    12. 12. IUID is About Permanent Item Identification – RFID is Not IUID Item Unit Pack* NO Shipping Container YES * If the IUID Packaging is also an External Container or a Shipping Container, it will have an RFID tag. Palletized Unit Load Tag YES Exterior Container YES Pallet tag
    13. 13. UII and NSN – Related Not Equal <ul><li>NATO Stock Number (NSN) is a Tool for Identifying a Group of Items that Meet a Set of Capabilities </li></ul><ul><li>IUID Creates a Globally Unique Number for a Specific Individual Item Among all Items That are Considered Equal by NSN </li></ul>
