7 © 2007 WP 2: Serial-Level Lookup Service Two categories of serial lookup data: Serial-lookup service: scalability, rapid response, robustness, security, implementation of authentication and access control policy serial-level master data recorded by manufacturer of the product (particular batches – ingredients – processing equipment) lifecycle event data (involved operations – sensor information) WP Partners: AT4 wireless, Cambridge, ETH, BT, SAP, AIDA, GS1 UK

8 © 2007 WP 3: Serial-Level Supply Chain Control Encapsulate information from EPC network, analyse the information and utilize it to enhance existing business processes and/or decision-making processes WP Partners: Cambridge, ETH, BT, SAP, Bénédicta Targeted Recall, Diversion, Shrinkage, Lost & Found, Asset Tracking, Condition Monitoring, Reconciliation,...

12 © 2007 Approach of Business Work Packages Problem Analysis Requirement Analysis Business Case Pilot/ Trial Infrastructure/Application Base: EPC & EPCglobal Network

13 © 2007 WP 5: Anti-Counterfeiting –Develop a secure track and trace solution based on EPCglobal network infrastructure –Analyse the drivers and enablers of counterfeiting and product piracy, the supply and demand side of illicit trade –Requirement analysis of end-user, consumers, brand-owners and manufacturers (task will include the demands concerning an end-user EPC-based device to perform product checks) - Input from EU SToP project –Assessing the economical justification; build business case –Development of trial infrastructure WP Partners: SAP, ETH Zürich

14 © 2007 WP6: Pharma Traceability Pilot Implement a complete supply chain traceability system for pharma products to improve patient safety and increase supply chain efficiency in the branded and generic supply chain. Demonstrate a business case and the feasibility, cost efficiency, and interoperability of the technology suite, regardless of: –Pharma product packaging level and and product type –Serialised data tag (RFID or Data Matrix code)

15 © Analytical Approach 2. Empirical Study -Problem Analysis based on studies and field reports -Requirements Analysis Hardware, Software and processes -Develop a Business Case -Execution of an Empirical Study - analysis results - deployment of a pilot WP Partners: GS1 Germany, AIDA, UPC, Carrefour, gardeur, GS1 Spain, Kaufhof, Northland WP7: European Textile supply chain

16 © 2007 WP 8: Manufacturing Process Application –Examine the role of RFID in providing accurate and complete item level information in a timely manner to enhance the management of products in services –Problem analysis: identify business process improvements that are possible through RFID tagging on work-in-progress containers – specially in manufacturing processes –Requirement analysis: HW (types of tags/readers that are appropriate to business processes) + SW (existing systems and new decision system) –Business case and trial infrastructure WP Partners: Cambridge, Nestlé, SAP, BT

17 © 2007 WP 9: Reusable Asset Management Focus on the use of EPCglobal applications for the management of reusable logistic containers - how to develop a secure track&trace solution to cut the cost and increase efficiency Items: pallets, crates, barrels, gas cylinders, beer kegs, rail cars, trailers, etc. First steps: market description - defining the key actors in the market - providing figures on the market Approach: 1. Questionnaire will be circulated to container pools and providers 2. Description of current practices in terms of flows of goods, data and money Pilots and trials are planned WP Partners: GS1 France, Carrefour, GS1 Germany, Bénédicta

18 © 2007 WP 10: Products in Service (I) Business problem: the gradual loss of item level information during and after the point of manufacturing. The information associated with a particular product decreases. WP Partners: Cambridge, Sony, BT, Carrefour

19 © 2007 WP 10: Products in Service (II) Examine the role of RFID in providing accurate and complete item level information in a timely manner to enhance the management of products in services: -to conduct feasibility analysis of an RFID enabled information system for the whole lifecycle for a specific product type (e.g. TV) -to examine the type of information that needs to be captured when products are in service and maintenance -to conduct a requirement analysis, e.g. tags and type of information needed for maintenance and products in service –to determine a business case: the benefits of having accurate and complete product information on products in services against the cost of HW/SW –trial to prove the robustness of the EPC network for intra- and inter-communications to store, retrieve and filter product lifecycle information

20 © 2007 WP 11: Item Level Tagging for Non-Food-Products To understand how item level tagging will help to improve efficiency and provide better services for the customer: a) optimised order and forecasts with enhances visibility b) reduction of returns to suppliers c) improve inventory in store and warehouse d) decrease out of stocks e) lower shrinkage f) develop collaboration between partners Product categories: - cultural products: DVDs, books, SW, CDs video games - textile products WP Partners: Carrefour, Cambridge, GS1 France, GS1 Germany

21 © 2007 Training, Dissemination Innovation & Policy Work Packages

22 © 2007 WP12: Training Training activities (WP 12) – GS1 GO –To perform a Training Needs Analysis as to assess which course material needs to be developed for which target audience and in which format –Based on the Training Needs Analysis, to develop course material in a blended learning approach (eLearning, face-to-face training, trainers kits, syllabi, etc.) –To customize the existing GS1 eLearning platform (i.e. LEARN) as to ensure it fully support EPC/RFID student administration, tracking and certification for this project. –To assess whether a ISO business certificate can be delivered to the students attending the EPC/RFID courses developed in the framework of this project

24 © 2007 WP13: Dissemination Dissemination activities (WP 13) – GS1 GO –Concept animations: multi-media objects used for e-learning courses, presentations –Portable Demo: Demonstration software of the EPCglobal network –Economic impact: RFID market sizing study complemented by qualitative impact analysis –Portal: Public and Private web portal enabling dissemination and collaboration –Awareness: Study about consumer awareness of the technology –Roadshow: Information and material package to support conferences and workshop disseminating the results of the project

25 © 2007 Portable demonstration Interactive software package + Comprehensive user manual Pallet with RFID tags passing through portal

26 © 2007 WP15: Innovation & Policy Innovation and Policy (WP15) – GS1 UK –From RFID to the Internet of things: Annual report on how ubiquitous computing may develop, especially with regard to RFID and its application in a more pervasive network –RFID and public policy matters: Annual report on areas where RFID implementation affects public policy matters (Competitiveness, Governance, IPR and Anti-Trust, Privacy and Security, Health and Science, Environment and Waste, Communications, Spectrum, Research)
