Authored on

The Data Discovery and Conversion Framework is a guide for helping implementors define the gap between current product and item structures and the ideal GS1 hierarchical product and trade item structures needed to identify trade items using the Global Trade Identification Number (GTIN). The Framework also helps the implementor in assessing the potential need to convert product master data in the legacy logistics systems to achieve the alignment between existing internal product identifiers and related Global Trade Item Identifiers. The Data Discovery and Conversion Framework is designed to help implementors prepare for working with countries on a path to GS1 standards to achieve product traceability, with a goal of updating their product master data to support automatic identification and data capture (AIDC).
