Lot Traceability Software: Lot Number Tracking With Barcode Scanning

Track lot numbers / serial numbers of used components, materials and ingredients through the production process from start to finish. Eliminate physical paperwork, use mobile devices for barcode scanning and data collection. Find what lot numbers of components where used in each serialized assembly or final product batch. Quickly find where and when each batch was distributed in case of a problem or recall.

Using Mobile Devices For Lot Numbers Tracking / Lot Traceability

Manual lot number tracking is very tedious, time consuming process that introduces errors, and you are still having problems finding required information when needed. With QR Inventory, you will be able to do all tracking and data recording on the shop floor using mobile devices. All recorded data are sent to a secure cloud in real time, are easily searchable and accessible on demand via an admin web dashboard.

How Lot Number Tracking Works With QR Inventory

Receiving New Materials Lot: Label the lot with QR code labels (or use existing barcodes / QR codes if available). Scan the label and enter lot information into the system on a smartphone. You define what information you wnat to keep on each lot via the web dashboard. The information can include date produced, date received, manufacturer, expiration date, and any other parameters specific to your products.
Once information is entered, all authorized employees can access it: by scanning QR code label on the shop floor, and via the web interface in the office. Authorized shop floor employees can update information, add new data obtained during production process, or add images taken with a smartphone camera.

Tracking Lot Through The Production Process: As product batch (lot) is moving through the production process, or is used as an ingredient / component in the intermediate or final product, each step is recorded by scanning QR code. All additional information that you need to keep track of is collected on the mobile devices using custom mobile forms.
You are in a complete control of the process: you define the process steps and what data should be collected on each step via an easy to use web dashboard.

Intermediate and final products: Each intermediate and final product that is created during the process is assigned a lot number, labeled and is tracked through the process in the same maneer using mobile devices.

Product Distribution: Once your final product batch is created, it can be split into units (if applicable), and distributed to the customer(s) or sent to the storage. All distribution information is recorded during the process using smartphones or tablets for QR code / barcode scanning and data entry.

What Happens With The Data Collected On The Shop Floor With The Mobile Devices

All data collected on the shop floor using mobile devices are sent to a secure cloud in real time. All authorized employees have an access to the up-to-the-minute information, on the mobile devices on the shop floor and computers in the office.

Office employees can access and download the following information using admin web dashboard:

  • Inventory stock, by product type and lot number
  • History of all recorded transactions / production steps, with dates, employees, and collected information
  • Check live progress of everything in production
  • Check lot number of all ingredients used in a final product
  • Find all product batched that contain an ingredient with the specified lot number
  • Check how each lot number was distributed, to what customer, when, and all associated details
  • Check inventory usage and trends
  • and more...

Adjusting QR Inventory To Your Process

Regardless of what you operations are: manufacturing of the unique on demand products, food or beverage manufacturing, agricultural or greenhouse operations, etc. - you will be able to adjust QR Inventory to your unique business needs. You can define what information to store for the material lots and batches of the final product, create inventory transactions that you need, define production steps, create custom mobile forms for data collection, create custom pdf reports, and more.

Lot Traceability Through The Entire Supply Chain - Blockchain Traceability Solution

Often multiple companies are involved in creating a single product. As product batch or serialized inventory moves through the manufacturing process, from raw materials to the final product, it is transferred from one company to another. When each company records traceability information in it's own internal traceability software system at best, and using paper and pencil at worst, each company needs to do more manual work and it is still impossible to get the entire traceability picture.

Our Shared Traceability solution, which is based on blockchain technology solves this problem. It allows companies within a supply chain network to share traceability system, where each partner company tracks product batch through it's internal process, and all supply chain partners have an immediate access to the complete, end-to-end traceability data. Shared Traceability can be used as an addition to QR Inventory or as a stand alone product. Please let us know if you would like to learn more about Shared Traceability or would like to try it out.
