Traceability for the automotive industry is tracking the genealogy of the parts and subassemblies associated with a specific vehicle or range of vehicles. A barcode mark on the part serves as a tag for the accumulated data. Barcode readers then decode the data throughout the part’s lifecycle and reliably transfer the information into an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software system ensuring full traceability for each part of a finished vehicle.
Cradle-to-grave visibility of data is vital for making, storing, or moving items through the supply chain used in production output calculations, inventory control, revenue forecasting, warranty, repair, service and support solutions, and other business operations. It is also critical to improving throughput and lowering production costs. A complete traceability solution simplifies monitoring the process by identifying bottlenecks or problems. It helps in implementing error-proofing methods. In addition to eliminating manual part number data entry errors, code reading can also assist in data logging for safety, liability, and warranty issues, and satisfy regulatory requirements for tracking high-value parts that are prone to theft or counterfeiting. A solid traceability minimizes the costs for rejects and recalls. With the availability of cost-effective solutions for every application and budget, you are no longer bound by selecting a limited number of code-reading checkpoints.
Complete Automotive Parts Traceability
- COMPONENT LEVEL TRACEABILITY - Information like quantity, date, the location of origin, and supplier are either directly marked on components or printed on labels as barcodes or RFID Tags.
- SUBASSEMBLY - By marking and reading codes through each step and then integrating the data collected with your ERP system, significantly helps operators avoid mistakes in operations involving many similar components.
- MAJOR ASSEMBLY - Tracking historical data including time, date, location, operators’ names, and all details of assembly help to achieve regulatory compliance and meet your customers' demands easily.
- FINAL ASSEMBLY AND SHIPMENT –Mark and scan to track the final product to its next destination. Complete traceability simplifies tracking repair, service, the authenticity of a part at its ultimate location and helps in resolving support issues later. Reliable tracking is a requirement for keeping your line moving toward meeting daily throughput goals.
