Representing Supply Chain Events on the Web of Data

Representing Supply Chain Events on the Web of Data

This video was recorded at 12th International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC), Sydney 2013. The Electronic Product Code Information Service (EPCIS) is an EPCglobal standard, that aims to bridge the gap between the physical world of RFID1 tagged artifacts, and information systems that enable their tracking and tracing via the Electronic Product Code (EPC). Central to the EPCIS data model are \events" that describe specic occurrences in the supply chain. EPCIS events, recorded and registered against EPC tagged artifacts, encapsulate the \what", \when", \where" and \why" of these artifacts as they ow through the supply chain. In this paper we propose an ontological model for representing EPCIS events on the Web of data. Our model provides a scalable approach for the representation, integration and sharing of EPCIS events as linked data via RESTful interfaces, thereby facilitating interoperability, collaboration and exchange of EPC related data across enterprises on a Web scale.
