Real-time Traceability Inside your 4 Walls

If your facility experienced a major quality issue or an outbreak of foodborne illness, the ability to rapidly trace the problem inside your 4 Walls, plus one step Back / one step Forward into your Supply Chain would be critical to:

  • Protecting the health of consumers
  • Protecting your brand
  • Minimizing your company's risk and liability
  • Reducing the scope and cost of a recall event.

With 24/7 access to detailed, real-time electronic traceability records, you can respond quickly to the crisis and expedite the process of:

  • Identifying, containing and eliminating the QC problem
  • Minimizing its impact on your consumers
  • Miniziming the impact on your company and your supply chain partners.

The ability to trace your product at least one step Back /one step Forward is a mandate under the new Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA).

The SPEDE Raw Material, Work-in-Process and Finished Goods modules capture traceability data automatically, as a by-product of scanning inventory transactions from Receiving through Shipping.There is no additional recordkeeping needed.

Capturing "Critical Tracking Events"

Capture Traceability Data by Scanning Transactions

Scan Pallet S/N to Capture Traceability Data

What are Critical Tracking Events? These are inventory transactions that provide the "Who, What, When, Where" details you will need to:

  • Determine the origin of the QC problem
  • Identify specific Lots / Serial numbers of affected product
  • Locate & quarantine all affected product to prevent shipment
  • Trace Forward all shipped product to its ship-to locations
  • Limit a Recall to only the affected units
  • Trace Back to appropriate Suppliers, if necessary

When you scan a serialized inventory label to record an inventory transaction, SPEDE automatically records the Critical Tracking Event details.

This data is stored in the real-time SPEDE Event Database. You can trace serialized units of inventory to see when they were:

  • Received
  • Issued
  • Produced
  • Labeled
  • Picked
  • Packed
  • Shipped
