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.

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...

Opening the EPC Namespace could make the EPCGlobal network the release candidate for the Internet of Things (WEB 3.0) in case we manage to solve 2 important issues....
