Supply Chain Solutions - Lot and Serialized Traceability

Real-time Lot / Serialized Traceability

Lot / Serial Traceability via Scanning Transactions

Lot/Serial Traceability Data
is Captured Automatically

The ability to contain a quality issue inside your plant, plus trace it one step Back / one step Forward into your Supply Chain is critical to:

  • Protecting your Consumers
  • Protecting your Brand
  • Minimizing your Liability
  • Reducing the Scope and Cost of Recall Events

The SPEDE Real-time Material Control system builds a detailed traceability database of individual parts, containers, and pallets as a by-product of printing serialized inventory labels and scanning inventory transactions from Receiving through Production to Shipping.

Detailed Lot / Serial Traceability Reports

Detailed Lot Tracking Reports - easily accessible 24/7

Access Detailed Traceability Data, 24/7

An effective Traceability system requires 24/7 access to relevant, real-time electronic records.

SPEDE time-stamps and logs Inventory transactions in an SQL database on the SPEDE server. You can use standard data mining tools or Crystal Reports to access the SPEDE Event Database 24/7 to identify and trace affected units of product by:

  • Part, Lot, Serial Number
  • Production machine, Work Order
  • Run date, Shift, Work Cell
  • Warehouse Location
  • Shipped Date, Customer, Ship-to Address
  • Raw material components / Supplier, and more

Serialized Parts Traceability

WiFi TouchScreen - Counting Serialized Parts

If you're currently serializing individual parts using some type of parts marking technology, you can automatically count, track and trace the serialized parts for easy traceability later.

Serialized Parts Traceability is an optional feature of the SPEDE PLC Labeling solution, which prints serialized container labels at line-side.

SPEDE PLC Labeling uses an image scanner at line-side to read and capture the serial number of Parts as they leave production. SPEDE records serial numbers of both Good Parts and Scrap Parts.

When the container label is printed, SPEDE time-stamps and logs it into a Label Database, and associates the Part serial numbers to the container label in which the parts are packed.

Real-time Traceability Queries & Reports

You can define the parameters by which to trace serialized parts. For example, you can trace by:

  • Part Number
  • Production Run, Date, Shift, Time, etc., of Part Serial Number
  • Container Serial Number it was packed in
  • Master Pallet Serial Number associated with that Container
  • All other Part Serial Numbers packed in that particular Container
  • All other parts numbers associated with that Master serial number
  • Location of serialized Part / Container / Pallet
  • Ship-to Location of Part Serial Numbe, etc.
  • Serialized WIP units associated with serialized Finished Part numbers

Capturing "Critical Tracking Events" for Traceability

Capture Traceability Data by Scanning Transactions

Pallet/Container Traceability is Captured by Scanning the Pallet Serial Number

Critical Tracking Events provide the "Who, What, When, Where and Which " details about each unit of material as it moves through your 4 walls.

SPEDE's real-time Lot/Serialized traceability function:

  • Begins at Receiving by capturing Lot/Serial data for units of raw material
  • Continues into Production by linking Lot/Serial data of raw material to Work Order / Production Run data
  • Continues to Finished Goods by linking the serialized parts to Production Run data
  • Continues to Labeling by linking serialized parts to a serialized Container Label, and to a serialized Pallet Label
  • Continues to Shipping by capturing the ship-to data of serialized product shipped to internal warehouses and Customer sites
