Technical Industries

Companies in Technical Industries face many challenges, such as cost pressure, counterfeiting and the race to digitise their physical worlds. They need transparent processes to optimise their supply chains as raw materials and parts enter production environments, are assembled and packaged as finished products, and are put into operation and managed over many years. In these industries, companies need robust life cycle management.

GS1 Standards for identifying, capturing, and sharing information about products, business locations, and more are making it possible for this industry to achieve true supply chain visibility and achieve leaps in operational productivity. This sector also focuses on relevant and pivotal industry activities and business processes such as:

  • Digital Factory (Industry 4.0), Innovative Technologies, Spare Parts Management & Automation
  • Direct Parts Marking
  • Maintenance and Repair Operations (MRO) & Serialisation
  • Unique identification and IoT (Internet of Things)
