Traceability for the Automotive Industry

Print Reprint
FILED IN:  Traceability, Automotive
     
Traceability for the automotive industry is a process that documents the genealogy of the parts and subassemblies associated with a specific vehicle or range of vehicles. You may ask, “Is it worth putting a barcode on each of the 10-20,000 parts that make up an automobile?” Yes, actually, it is.

All of this data can be accumulated and combined into a barcode and marked on the part. 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.
