Use Cases GAPC
UVDB allows parts to be found more easily by adding EAN, GTIN, UPC numbers as well as translating local "common" names into the most common names in each country. For example "Hood" in USA is automatically translated to "Bonnet" in other parts of the world. You only need to define it once.
Cross reference, and interchange
Aftermarket parts can be added as replacements for OEM, OEM parts can be superseded.
Options (package sizes, offsets, etc), images, and categorizations can be updated by experts and then voted on to enter the core UVDB.
