Extensible Markup Language (XML)
is a simple and flexible information exchange format that is well suited to support web-enabled business applications. XML
is also playing an increasingly important role in the exchange of a wide variety of data within the Department of Defense (DOD). To take advantage of XML
and ensure interoperability, the Defense Logistics Management Standards Office (DLMSO) is developing XML
schemas that support DOD
enterprise integration and end-to-end customer business process reengineering objectives.
Item Unique Identification (IUID)
is actively participating in the incorporation of UID
in logistics business process. Go to the Unique Identification Tracking Committee (UITC) page
