Tracking and Tracing
Precise insight into which raw materials have been incorporated into a product and which operations have been carried out on said product, that is the advantage of a good Tracking & tracing system. Tracking and Tracing may be required be law, but it can also be a wish of your end users and customers.
For optimal traceability, it is important that raw materials, semi-finished products and end products are provided with a unique code. In the food industry, where raw materials cannot be provided with a code or RFID chip, batches can easily be traced using sensors in weighing and filling systems or product counters.
With automation, you can identify products throughout a production process or even throughout the entire chain, so that you can tell exactly who supplied a given product, whether products have been sufficiently heated or cooled, who worked which shift, whether samples have been taken and what anomalies or malfunctions occurred. Industrial labelling or coding during all process steps makes it easier to link process data to individual products and orders. Van Lente Systeemintegratie can design and realise new Tracking and Tracing solutions or expand existing systems to optimise the production process.
We can set up integrated links between your Tracking & Tracing system and your MES/ERP layer, label printers (Industrial printing), RFID readers and barcode scanners for example. Automated registration saves you time and can be used to generate comprehensive (legally required) documentation.
