Validation, Track & Trace

Tracking, tracing material and error proofing are essential areas for many of our customers and to deliver it effectively Cedar Bay have an array of core transactions that support their businesses.
  • Validation, Track & Trace

    Cedar Bay projects completed for customers often focus on delivering end to end traceability for our customers. In many industry sectors the ability to rapidly track, trace and recall products mandatory and the ability to demonstrate this capability in a timely fashion is part of many customers audits. One of the major objectives for one of our customers Vitacress, who produce salad products, was to deliver ‘field to fork traceability’.

    With our unparalleled ability to streamline and error proof our customers processes and provide simplified or automated data capture we can help customers quickly and effectively deliver this functionality.

    RECEIVING

    Supplier lot numbers can be linked to internal lot numbers on receipt and the goods can be palletised on receipt. Control plans and inspection results entry can be linked into the receipt process to further streamline the receipt. For more details on this see the Finlays case study

    Manufacturing

    Capturing lot, serial, pallet and case level details can be streamlined by using the Cedar Bay transactions for Shop orders. Labels for products, cases and pallets can be automatically generated through touchscreen or scanning transactions. Labels can include SSCC / UPC with 1D or 2D bar codes and any production information to aid traceability.

    Shipment and Dispatch

    The use of scanners in the warehouse is vital to ensure that the correct goods are picked and are matched to the correct orders with their appropriate delivery information. This ensures from a quality perspective that 100% shipment accuracy is assured and that customer returns are minimised. For more details see the User group conference presentation by Olympus KeyMed

    Recall

    All of the key data from the manufacturing process is held within the core system and the standard traceability reporting and enquiries are fully functional. For specific requirements beyond this Cedar Bay can enhance this with extra reports or enquiries.
