Traceability

Keep track of materials and product stock to avoid stock-outs

Traceability in manufacturing helps to monitor the operation flow, quantities of raw material used, time spent by the operator at each work station to do the product activity, and also the overall productivity of the plant.

The system keeps track of all vital data and information of a product and its components through all or part of its production and utilization chain. This will enable you to see in which areas of your production are underperforming and help you make changes to improve your manufacturing lead time.

The system is powered with a barcode that is uniquely generated and assigned to a product which can be scanned in any phase of the product to find vital information. At each stage of scanning the information is getting stored in a secured server which can be monitored and analyzed at any given point in time.

Features:

  • Items and sub-assembly are serialized by unique code number
  • Tracking of Products from raw materials to finished state
  • Work order Management and scheduling
  • Tracing Critical and vital information of products in its usage lifecycle
  • Track the progress of production orders throughout the factory
  • Provide full history of each production order
  • Capture planned quantity, actual quantity, start & end time and duration

Traceability

Overview


Traceability solution in manufacturing companies helps to trace the raw materials and equipment used in the production or assembly area, to clarify “when and where the product was produced by whom.” This system gives the complete chain of data of the raw materials or sub-assembly used in the production for making the product

As the demand for Safety and Quality increases in the manufacturing arena the traceability uses have increased very rapidly. In order to have the proper safety and deliver quality products, tracking and tracing are most important in a manufacturing facility.

How does Traceability work?

Traceability works by attaching a unique barcode on every manufactured product at every stage to make sure they are traced through the manufacturing process.

The operator details, Equipment details, Raw material usage can be easily identified using the system

Traceability includes Online tracing, order management tools, test certificate generation as well as traceability software.

Manufacturing industries contain various sections in the assembly line like inventory management, component marking, product labeling, packaging, cartoon pallet labeling. The assembly contains a physical flow of traceable items along with a unique barcode. The barcode contains desired information about the product.

During the process, online tracing is deployed across the plant with unique number generation. First, this needs to trace the flow of materials.

Traceability is used for tracking the PCB, Bessel assembly and order management tool is used to manage the orders like creating order and viewing orders. Every component can be tracked through online and offline software.
