EPCGlobal... Standardization is not THE solution (simply a part of it).

EPCGlobal set of standards are one of the best available resources one can use to address traceability issues in closed or semi-open loops.

However, I consider the current EPCGlobal vision and concepts as somehow "limited" in its willingness and capacity to address every kind of actors in any situation (too much standardization, too many deterministic views, etc.).

This is why my company is using different approaches to enhance / leverage existing solutions (artificial intelligence, decisional analysis, etc.).

What has been done on DS (Discovery Services) so far (BRIDGE project, IETF, etc.) is, to my point of view, not always adapted to the market (real life) and I really wonder whether EPCGlobal will succeed or not with such an issue.

Actully deterministic and probabilistic approaches (some of the experimented ones) are not suited to treat complexity...

Use of “semantic approaches” : for a switch from existing EDI to « Any-to-Any communication » in the Internet of Things (and extending the current “semantic web”)

Intrinsically, the Internet of Things will be « non deterministic », complex and various although, so far, the ongoing standardization models (eg : EPCGlobal) are still apprehending deterministic value chains or processes.....
In such an environment, the use of Semantic approaches will, possibly, give a “meaning” to every kind of message and will accordingly facilitate communications whoever will be the actors, even though they have no prior interchange agreement.
