Product tracking and genealogy can take many forms – from tracking products down a production line through to full life cycle product tracking from raw materials in, through the process to warehousing and then distribution. The costs savings aspects and drivers of a tracking system are typically:
- Direct labour costs associated with maintaining a paper based system verses an electronic system
- Direct labour costs associated with the time taken to find products that are tracked on a paper based system verses one where the relevant information is immediately available on screen
- Indirect costs associated with product tracking and total amount of product recalled in the event of a product recall being needed
- Regulatory requirements – a necessary requirement in relation to maintaining your business’s sustainability.
By adding a tracking system your whole manufacturing cycle becomes more streamlined and effective, and the tracking system can be integrated with any other MES components that you may deploy.
