At a recent GS1 discussion group meeting one of the
moderators acknowledged that they need to create a clear explanation for
exactly what EPCIS is. I’ve never been
very impressed with GS1’s ability to explain their own standards at a high-level
for non-technical readers. They do a
great job of explaining them at the minutia-level, but that’s the problem. Non-technical people who must make decisions
about GS1 standards probably get bogged down in that minutia and end up not
really understanding what it is, why it is significant, and why they should use
it. Too much technical documentation
exists on how to apply EPCIS, and not
enough documentation on the why.
