Avoid image and financial damage
Errors surrounding the processing of raw materials can be very costly. In the worst case scenario, the costs may not only be financial but also relate to a company’s image. The sooner errors within a process can be detected and rectified, the less damage is caused. The tracing functionalities make it simple to build in controls of raw materials at various stages of the production process to prevent errors from going undetected and leading to problems at a later stage.
'Bill of material' increasingly importent
Required materials are included in a bill of material. On the basis of a determined sales and production plan and the specific period of the production, the scheduler can calculate which materials, components and amounts must be purchased. This bill of material does not only contain information about these parts, but also information about the order where and when they were produced. For example, after a recall, it will be possible to find out where mistakes are made in the whole production process.
