Supply Chain - AIDC Vertical Markets
Share |


The Supply Chain market spotlights how AIDC technologies have the ability to improve visibility, security and responsiveness across global supply chains, and AIM members provide the know how. Some of the world’s largest corporations and government agencies have come to AIM for help in applying the technologies and standards they need to improve supply chain management. From tracking cargo containers around the world or providing track-and-trace visibility for unit-of-use pharmaceuticals, AIDC technologies and AIM are at the center of modern supply chain management programs.

Here are some of the ways AIDC technologies are supporting supply chain visibility and collaboration:

· Barcodes and RFID tags can provide serialization at the item level so systems can automatically capture and share accurate information about products and transactions.

· Reduce latency in supply chains by building sense-and-respond capabilities into items and processes using automatic identification technologies, sensors and real-time wireless communication.

· Use AIDC to monitor material and inventory levels to trigger automated replenishment orders.

· Improve decision making and resource allocation by using automated monitoring and data capture to give instant status updates ERP, WMS, inventory control, materials management and other enterprise systems.

· Barcode and other technologies support automated track-and-trace processes and can automatically build chain-of-custody records. Use them to prevent diversion and counterfeiting by building authentication capabilities into products and processes.

AIM supports supply chain transformation programs underway at the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA), Department of Defense (DoD) and other public and private organizations.
