AIDC Standards: Who Needs Them?

Bert Moore

Understanding standards may be a painful process...but lack of understanding is worse.

Who needs standards? Short answer, "You do." Longer answer, "You and your trading partners need them." Correct answer, "Everyone needs them -- and everyone should thoroughly understand them in order to comply with them completely."

And if you think it's a difficult and not-very-rewarding job to learn all the relevant standards, think of how much more difficult things would be if everyone thought that way. Take something as simple as connecting to a WiFi hot spot or even screwing in a light bulb. Without standards compliance, each of these tasks would require a custom or proprietary solution. That wouldn't be very rewarding, would it?

But once you understand the need -- what do you do about it? And how do you know which standard(s) apply to you and your supply chain?
