Traceability is the ability to track and trace the history, location, and usage of components, materials, and products throughout their lifecycle. In the automotive parts industry, traceability plays a crucial role due to several reasons:

  • Quality Control and Assurance
  • Regulatory Compliance
  • Supplier Management
  • Recall Management
  • Continuous Improvement
  • Liability and Legal Protection

Key Parameters of Our Traceability Solutions

Data Capture and Collection: Systems are provided to capture and collect data at various stages of production, assembly, and distribution. This includes information about the manufacturing process, materials used, dates and times, and locations.

Database or Software System: A centralized database hosted on an edge server inside the company premises is used for storing and managing traceability data. This system is able to associate unique identifiers with relevant information and provide easy access for authorized personnel.

Integration with Manufacturing Process: Our traceability system is integrated with the manufacturing process itself. This ensures that data is collected automatically as components move through different stages of production.

Data Sharing Standards: Standardized data formats and communication protocols are provided for seamless data sharing between different entities within the supply chain.

Event Logging and Timestamps: Timestamps and event logging are provided to create a chronological record of each component’s journey, including when and where it was processed or assembled.

Quality Control Points: Our traceability systems can include checkpoints for quality control and inspections. These checkpoints can help identify any defects or discrepancies early in the process.

Analytics and Reporting Tools: The ability to analyze and generate reports from traceability data can provide insights into process efficiency, quality trends, and areas for improvement.

Data Security and Access Control: Given the sensitive nature of traceability data, robust security measures and access controls are provided to protect the data from unauthorized access or tampering.

Long-Term Data Storage: Traceability data may need to be stored for extended periods to meet regulatory requirements and for historical analysis. Regular backups ensure that long-term data is safe & sound.

Communication Infrastructure: A reliable communication infrastructure, including networks and connectivity solutions, is essential for transmitting data between different locations and systems. Our team helps your networking team to build this infrastructure.

Training and Education: Proper training for employees on using traceability systems and understanding their importance is provided for successful implementation.
