Supply Chain collaboration - the battle for data

"the comparison between ETIM, GS1 GPC International and GS1 DIY"

Read on and learn a little bit:

Did you visit the GS1 conference "Collaboration in the Do-It-Yourself Supply Chain"! Do you want to know what has been said visit the post event page.

Are you now aware of the Information Need - Pressure that is falling down upon the Manufacturer!

Have a look at the ETIM classification model, the eCl@ss model and the UNSPSC®.

The ETIM model can be downloaded freely. Now add to all these models the GS1 DIY product classification model (once it becomes available and accessible!) and maybe the real "product data classification dilemma" is apparent.

I do not have access to the GS1 DIY product classification model but it seems that the GS1 GPC Standard version June 2016 is not taken as the starting point.

How can we see this?

Go to the GS1 GPC Browser and enter:

The result is:

Now go to Doe-het-zelf veldenkiezer and enter:

The result is an URL: https://www.gs1.nl/doe-zelf-veldenkiezer?segment_id=9&family_id=18&class_id=29&brick_id=1216

We can see that these are other families, classes and bricks:

The found characteristics (snippet) are:

And now go to the ETIM Classification Management Tool and search for the class EC000125.

You will now see all the characteristics of the Class EC000125.

I am comparing both results and will come back on the findings later.

Main question !?

How are we collaborating in this battle for data? Will there be winners? And who will survive? At what cost?

I went home with a lot of ideas to help manufacterers in their quest for data classification and provisioning.

Love to hear from other visitors what they felt and what they took home!

My focus areas are business processes, business information systems (ERP, CRM, BPM, ...) and integration of business processes and systems over the boundaries of companies AND not to forget Open Source business applications.

If you have an opinion about the utilization of product data classification then do not hesitate to react. If you agree with the fundamentals then share it with others.
