Achieving clarity within a plant has become an important goal in today’s manufacturing world. Whether plant managers want to cut costs by making operators work more efficiently or minimize losses during a recall, having a clear understanding of what is happening on the production floor is essential to achieving these goals.
Material management with tracking and tracing capabilities is one of the tools that can provide this clarity. Tracking and tracing records all of the materials that enter or leave a plant and monitors the status of the materials while being consumed and/or produced.

Managers will have the ability to trace back all original materials of a product and quickly determine which supplier they came from as well as identify other products that may have been contaminated. Recalls are a stressful and costly process. By having an effective tracking and tracing system, companies can reduce the time and money spent during these events.
