REQUEST FOR INFORMATION— HIGH-VOLUME, LOW-COST ITEM SERIALIZATION

March 7, 2019

Affordable and practical item-level traceability has been urgently needed in consumer packaged goods and other high-volume manufacturing for improved quality assurance, inventory management, compliance, counterfeit mitigation, and real-time operational excellence. Although there are a number of existing solutions for item-level traceability, none are practical for high-volume, low-cost consumer packaged goods (zero cost, zero product real estate, serialize at rate of production, etc.).  MxD is seeking information on existing technologies and/or research and development work being done in this area. Any individual from industry or academia may submit a response; early responses are encouraged.

RFI responses are due on or before April 3, 2019, 5:00pm CT.

MxD will utilize information received to scope projects in this subject area. Early submissions are encouraged to accelerate project scope and will be discussed with MxD membership during the Agile Tech Team Quarterly Meeting on March 29th.  Members interested in responding to the RFI are encouraged to register and participate in the March 29th meeting.

For questions or more information, contact Katie Tillery-Merk at katie.tillery-merk@uilabs.org
