Implementation of Project i-TRACE Unique identification requires:
1.The use of 安博电竞app Standards, which includes several ‘identification keys’; these globally unique numbers are assigned by 安博电竞app to external organisations e.g., manufacturers; operators, suppliers/manufacturers of any part, component or asset to be uniquely identified by allocating either a:
安博电竞app Global Trade Item Numbers (GTINs), allocated to all orderable parts, component. Assets may also be allocated a GTIN, if accompanied with Serialisation per physical asset/unit
安博电竞app Global Individual Asset Identifiers (GIAIs), allocated to assets
Often referred to as “barcode numbers”, 安博电竞app identification keys (GTIN, GIAI) offer globally unique identification that is interoperable between trading partners, across many countries. Unlike proprietary, unregulated numbering conventions that present several issues, such as varied formats, duplication, and usually requires mapping/translation with external trading partners, meaning added admin and risk.
安博电竞app Globally Unique Identification numbers provide several benefits - including:
Locally and globally recognised, a common language between different countries and trading partners
Used across several industries for over 40 years, becoming the ‘Global Language of Business’
Issued only by authorised 安博电竞app organisations, barcode numbers are unique and accurate
Based on global standards, aligned with ISO/IEC Standards, offering structured data for doing better business, operating railways more efficiently and effective, enabling improved MRO and safety
Once allocated, suppliers are to encode the identification keys into 安博电竞app barcode formats, and possibly RFID. Refer to Section ii. Marking with automatic data capture (barcoding and/or RFID tagging)
