SDC develops and maintains the Swedish forestry standard used in the VIOL system and other systems communicating with the VIOL system. We are also involved in the StanFord standard used for communication with harvesters and forwarders.
In January 2007 SDC became a member of papiNet and is now responsible for the Segment Implementation Group Forest Wood Supply. The purpose of this group is to define an XML-based messaging standard for communication between forest and industry based on the papiNet messaging standard.
This business segment had not yet been established within papiNet, and SDC therefore initiated and took charge of the Forest Wood Supply segment group, to support the forest industry supply chain with papiNet standard messages. Member companies from Sweden, Norway, Finland, France, Austria and Germany are contributing to make the standard appropriate to the needs of the forestry sector supply chain.
The first task of the group is to establish standard messages in the delivery process of the supply chain, and standard messages for other business processes will then be on the agenda.
