Position Statements on AIDC in the Public Sector
These position statements support the effective use of AIDC technologies to support government regulations associated with safe and secure inventory management within the defense, pharmaceutical, food, and medical device supply chains
It's a fundamental role of government to ensure that the food people consume, drugs people take, medical devices used by hospitals and providers, and equipment to our soldiers, sailors, and airmen are safe. The benefit of AIDC technologies is that they can quickly and accurately identify crucial information about a product, determine product validity, and its exact location can be tracked throughout the supply chain.
Key Takeaways - It is the position of AIM NA that
AIDC technologies are:
1) Well understood across all global supply chains
2) Low cost, with either existing readers and devices or nominal investment to upgrade, which can quickly serve to address all specific data collection and date use needs
3) Effective in improving the chain of custody of the supply chain from producer to customer
4) The first layer in the Internet of Things (IoT); enabling the machine-to-machine communications needed for the IoT.
