Are you in control of what has been included in the production?

There is a growing need to keep track of items and commodities in the manufacturing supply chain. This applies to companies that are subject to US legislation for compliance with legal requirements. If a customer reports a defect in a product, it is crucial that you can track the item with a quick overview and react to any deviations in quality.

What is Item Tracking?

Tracking of items and commodities in stock, production and sales

Item tracking is a solution to identify the source and destination of goods, commodities in the supply chain. As a manufacturer, you can trace the item back to the supplier, where it is used right now and throughout the manufacturing process to sale of completed product.

If the error originates from a specific series or lot number, this is tracked forward to see what this is part of and the necessary precautions can be taken – it could be recalling some items from different customers.

What is the benefit of Item Tracking?

Item tracking gives you the overview to be able to react quickly to defective items

When items and commodities are assigned a tracking dimension, you have the ability to track in posted inventory transactions. Furthermore, item tracking gives production managers an overview and insight into any deviations, so that they can quickly take action and take care of quality defects.

Here are some examples of benefits you will experience from item tracking:

  • Manage the flow of items in the supply chain
  • Complete overview of an item or material’s location and inventory
  • Knowledge of where the item or commodity has been used
  • Trace back to the supplier of the specific item or product
  • Knowing how much has been delivered and to whom
  • Overview of whether defective items are included in planned production orders
  • Tracking in posted inventory transactions

What is in Item Tracking for you?

For you, this means that you have complete overview over what has been entered into in production and to whom, so you only have to recall the products where defective items have been entered into.

All companies that need tracking of an item – including where it is used, how and when it was received or manufactured, transferred, sold, consumed or returned – can greatly benefit from item tracking. This has especially value to companies that are subject to U.S. law.
