The key success factor to achieve an efficient upstream supply chain within an industry is the use of standards. Our product classification key (PCK), also known in the industry as FEDAS code, is meant to make data transfer and product identification easier on all levels.
With the current 6-digit code, you can immediately know what kind of products we are talking about with a simple structure:
