[A207] Understanding the UID

Instructor: Rick Bushnell

UID – Unique Identification – is really a set of existing data structures with a new name.  Required by the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) to identify trade items and assets of either a certain value or of a certain mission-critical nature, the UID provides globally unique identification and serialization  of those items and assets.

In this overview session, the attendee will learn how to encode DoD-requisite Unique Identification using EAN.UCC Application Identifiers, Data Identifiers, and SPEC 2000 Text Element Identifiers, as well as the fundamentals of “The Language of the Mark” – encodation of UID structures using the DataMatrix symbology.
