The GS1 Global Registry is the worldwide registry that links information about products and participants of the Global Data Synchronization Network (GDSN). The GDSN is a network of interoperable data pools and the GS1 Global Registry, for communicating ‘master data’ (trade item and party) among trading partners. Additionally, as trade items are registered, each product is assigned a Global Product Classification (GPC) code. Data Synchronization Businesses evolve. People come and go. Companies come and go. Product lines change as the needs of customers change. Sources change. New products are developed. Slow moving products are dropped. New distribution centers open. How do trade parties ensure that information is kept current? Data synchronization keeps information current. Data synchronization is the ongoing process of maintaining up-to-date information about the products and trade parties in the GDSN. The GS1 Global Registry enables all products and trade parties of the GDSN to communicate product and trade party information among trading partners, keeping that information current. So as new products are introduced, or when a foodservice trading partner opens a new location, this information is transmitted electronically through the data pools to the GS1 Global Registry.

P&G Organization Theory and Design

...Organizations must renew themselves. 10. The true test of leaders is the performance of the organization when they are absent or after they depart. Read more about these principles and McDonald’s stories behind them on the P&G Web site. In transport and logistics, they created a digitally enhanced operational program they call Control Tower that lets them see all the transportation they’re doing: inbound, outbound, raw materials, finished product. Distributor Connect lets them link directly with the distributors and help them run their business. This benefits all of them by improving service and reducing inventory across the supply chain. They want to be digitally connected to retailers too. For example, they use and support GDSN. Global Data Synchronization Network, which is basically a standardized data warehouse that allows them to do commerce with their retail partners in a totally automated way, with no human intervention. They also have performance standards that retailers in developing markets can visualize on their phones. For example, they believe you should arrange your store in a certain way to maximize consumer sales. If you have a store that partner with P&G on this, you can call up the performance standards on your phone, hold it up, look around your store, and compare it with what you see. You can take a picture of the shelf, have it digitally compared, and then automatically send action steps back to the retailer to help rearrange the shelf......

...that most medical devices distributed in the U.S. carry a unique device identifier (UDI). The FDA cited its benefits in improving the quality of information in medical device adverse event reports and improving patient safety by helping the FDA identify product problems more quickly and more efficiently target recalls. The Global Harmonization Task Force, a voluntary group of representatives from national medical device regulatory authorities and the regulated industry, supports these interests by encouraging international harmonization in the regulation of medical devices. Although this future use is not included in our assessment of GS1 Healthcare's position and adoption speed, the UDI is dependent on something like the GDSN operating, and UDI code would be according to ISO 15459 (issuing agencies GS1, Health Industry Business Communications Council and the International Council for Commonality in Blood Banking Automation). Interested parties should keep abreast of the pending/overdue final rule from the FDA on the UDI and review of approximately 300 comments received. Note that GS1 Healthcare is part of the World Health PharmaCARE's International Medical Products Anti-Counterfeiting Taskforce (IMPACT). An important endorsement occurred in April 2013 when the Healthcare Transformation Group (made up of Geisinger Health System, Intermountain Healthcare, Kaiser Permanente, Mayo Clinic and Mercy, which has been acting in support of GS1 standards for some......

...lead to the rekeying of information has been a barrier limiting the adoption of SCM. Successful online marketplaces such as Elemica within the chemical industry have been based on collaboration between a limited number of partners within a vertical sector. But for markets with a more diverse range of products such as consumer packaged goods or retail, standardization is more difficult. GDSN is a more recent development which should help accelerate adoption of e-SCM (see Box 6.5). Box 6.5 Standardizing the world’s data with GDSN Every commercial organization has databases or catalogues containing information about the products they make, or sell, or buy. But, and it is a big but, the way in which they describe the information differs according to internal terminology, country, competing industry standards and when the database was last updated. This is one of the reasons for the development of barcodes and this principle has been developed further by supply chain trade organization Global Standards One (GS1) into the Electronic Product Code (EPC) and GDSN. The Global Data Synchronisation Network (GDSN) was launched in 2005 to create standards for sharing information about retail products. By 2008 there were over 2 million items registered. G1, the organization that manages this standard, explains that there are five simple steps that allow trading partners to synchronize item, location and price data with each other: 1 2 3 4 5 Load Data. The seller registers product and......

...distribution center, the transportation, and the receiving personnel. The savings in paperwork and manhours are immense and offer insight into how Walmart has been able to gain competitive advantage and market share in the retail market so quickly. The results of this program have been a doubling of both sales and inventory turn for the affected categories and suppliers. The Basics of Becoming a Walmart Supplier 1. To be an approved Walmart supplier, you must be EDI capable and AS2 communication is required to transmit EDI transactions to and from Walmart. 2. Walmart requires their suppliers to be 100 percent synched and to provide accurate data through GDSN (Global Data Synchronization Network). Walmart offers free workshops to help their suppliers with this requirement, and most EDI providers can walk you through GDSN compliance as well. 3. Walmart requires security source tagging in order to reduce shrinkage. Security source tagging is the practice of incorporating disposable anti-theft labels at the manufacturing, packaging, or distribution level. According to, “All products must be certified, prior to tagging, by an authorized Source Tagging Lab.” 4. You must have a D&B risk rating of less than 7 to be considered by Walmart. For more details on what it takes to become an approved Walmart supplier, see The measures Walmart has taken have not come without expense. In order to......

................................................13 Executive Summary The Global Trade Item Number (GTIN) is the foundation of the GS1 System (formerly the EAN.UCC System) for uniquely identifying trade items, which includes both products and services that are sold, delivered, and invoiced at any point in the supply chain. GTINs provide unique identification worldwide. The GTIN is encountered most frequently at point of sale and on cases and pallets of products in a distribution/warehouse environment. GTINs can be encoded into various types of GS1 bar codes and Electronic Product Codes™ (EPC) which are programmed into Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) tags. The GTIN is a required component of the Global Data Synchronization Network™ (GDSN™) and various types of e-commerce transactions. They are most commonly used on purchase orders, and delivery and payment documents. Companies can be confident that a GTIN, when used correctly, will uniquely identify their products as they move through the global supply chain to the ultimate end user. This global identification system of GS1 ensures that the GTIN placed in a bar code or EPC is the same information contained in the corresponding electronic documents processed between trading partners. GS1 US™ has developed the Data Driver® to help companies with the assignment and management of GTINs. Data Driver is a key benefit of GS1 US Partner Connections and is presently used by companies of all sizes and in various industries to......

...finished product. We’re probably the second- or third-largest user of trucks in the United States, and through this technology we’ve been able to reduce “deadhead” movement1 by about 15 percent. This reduces costs and carbon monoxide. In circumstances where we use distributors, a similar interface, called Distributor Connect, lets us link directly with them and help them run their business. This benefits all of us by improving service and reducing inventory across the supply chain. We want to be digitally connected to retailers too. For example, we use and support GDSN,2 which is basically a standardized data warehouse that allows us to do commerce with our retail partners in a totally automated way, with no human intervention. The industry association GS1 did a study a few years ago that found that 70 percent of orders between retailers and suppliers had errors. But if everyone used a common data warehouse like GDSN—where the data are kept dynamically correct—that number goes down to virtually zero, and it saves millions of dollars in doing commerce together. Another thing we do is to use our scale to bring state-of-the-art technology to retailers that otherwise can’t afford it. Imagine a small store in the Philippines, for example—a country where I used to live. We can provide sophisticated ordering applications to help people there run their businesses better than they would be able to otherwise. We have mobile-phone applications that allow retailers to order from us......
