Peter alvarez gs1 beyond consumer goods

  1. 1. GS1 Standards Beyond Consumer Goods ECR Asia 6th October 2010 Peter J Alvarez Lessons Learned from the Past… “Over the course of a few years a new technology annihilated distance and shrank the world faster and further than ever before.” “A worldwide network spanned continents and oceans, it revolutionized business practice and gave rise to new forms of crime. Romances blossomed. Secret codes were devised by some and cracked by others.” “The benefits of the network were relentlessly hyped by its advocates and dismissed by the skeptics. Governments and regulators tried and failed to control the new medium and attitudes to everything from news gathering to diplomacy had to be completely rethought.” Courtesy of Prof. Steve Woolgar – The Virtual Society? (2002) what “New Technology” was it ? © 2010 GS1

  3. 3. Barcodes – Revolutionalise Check Out In June of 1974, the first U.P.C. scanner was installed at a Marsh's supermarket in Troy, Ohio. On June 26, 1974 the first product scanned at the check-out with a bar code was Wrigley's gum. Modern bar code began in 1948. Bernard Silver, a graduate student at Drexel Institute of Technology in Philadelphia, overheard the president of a local food chain asking one of the deans to undertake research to develop a system to automatically read product information during checkout. Silver told his friend Norman Joseph Woodland about the food chain president's request. Woodland was a twenty seven year old graduate student and teacher at Drexel. The problem fascinated Woodland and he began to work on the problem. © 2010 GS1 Not Everyone Was Convinced Then… “I think the industry has sold itself on a program that offers so little return that it simply won’t be worth the trouble and expense.” A Midwestern Grocery Chain Executive discussing the potential of the barcode in 1975* *“Scanning Hits a Snag,” Progressive Grocer, December 1975, p. 47 © 2010 GS1

  15. 15. Global Data Synchronisation Providing master data synchronisation for more efficient value chains What is data synchronisation? Every company has a database filled with master data about the products they make, or sell, or buy But when one company needs to change any bit of information in their database or add a new item to it, another database may not be up to date anymore…! 30 © 2008 GS1

RFID Based EAS Two Functions – One Tag EAS Item Identifcation (SGTIN) 33 © 2010 GS1 RFID Based EAS Integration of Item Identification & EAS = EPC Items secured using EAS • Systems know exactly where a specific item is Items identified using EPC tags Only specific items rung at POS are "deactivated" • Others will set off EAS alarm Visibility of specific items throughout supply chain can detect and prevent shrinkage from manufacture to shop floor 34 © 2010 GS1 34
  18. 18. Supply Chain Operations Fundamental process changes to gain better visibility in supply chains But Why RFID ? This pallet has at least one “inner core”. That means that there are cartons inside the pallet with no line of sight to their labels Verifying all cartons present means you must •Drop the pallet •Break it down •Line up the label and scan the barcode on each carton •Rebuild and re-label the pallet RFID can possibly read all labels as pallet passes the antennae without stopping at all 5th March 2009 © 2006 EPCglobal Inc © 2010 GS1
