26 September 2010
Full Charter downloadable from RVC IUG Community Room
RVC IUG Co-Chairs formally in place since June 14th
We are still seeking a full time Retail Industry Director
Other existing Retail related initiatives will fall into one of these BNG's
Leadership Team composition not yet decided but likely to include BNG Co-Chairs. LT will be led by IUG Co-Chairs
BNG's need to elect co-chairs and define their roadmaps
Existing CE IUG will integrate into RVC IUG
Leadership Team- all activities to do with:
Implementation - anything to do with the actual implementation and/or support of our standards, services, solutions, guidelines. Includes all general activities to do with business processes
Packaging - all activities concerned with packaging at all stages from raw materials through to end user and reverse logistics. Includes standards for exchange of packaging data and requirements between the packaging industry and manufacturers/retailers
FoodChain - everything to do with growing, processing, transporting, storing, labelling, retailing, providing and consuming fresh food. Includes safety, traceability, recall, cold chain and all food outlets such as commercial caterers and restaurants
MobileCommerce - all activities related to the use of mobile technology in the Retail Value Chain. Includes, but not limited to, electronic coupons, retrieving item information etc.
Security - everything related to the safe transportation, storage, provision and sale of items through the Retail Value Chain. Includes EAS
SupplyChain - everything from raw material to manufacturing to delivery at retailer or point of consumption/use. Includes focus on inventory management and Returns/EOL processing
ConsumerElectronics - special focus on all electronics from USB stick to large white and brown goods, i.e. any electronics used by a consumer!
The Leadership Team - is a permanent group covering all parts of the RVC.
Data needs may be raised in the group but would then normally be passed over to the GDSN IUG
All other groups listed would effectively be BNG’s (Business Needs Groups in the new Industry Engagement environment) and would exist only as long as there was ongoing work for them.
