Track & Trace Software

Interface with All Traceability and Production Data

By adding the Track & Trace Module to the Ignition platform, your system can have the capability to look up where any product has been in its manufacturing process, and where it is now. This paperless and fully integrated solution allows you to do the following:

  • Track products from the raw materials to the finished state, including consumables and byproducts
  • Access Genealogy data
  • Set up unified operator interfaces including SCADA, HMI, other MES, and more
  • Serialization of items and sub-assemblies

Automated Traceability Software

Tracking and tracing is the process by which manufacturers obtain and record highly important information about where and how products are made. Track and trace software automates this process and has become a modern necessity for manufacturers as their industry faces increasing economic and regulatory challenges. Track and trace software fits into the Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES) / Manufacturing Operations Management (MOM) layer that resides between the Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) layer and the plant floor.
