The automotive sector is certainly one of the precursors in the field of the traceability.
Even if no law requires the installation of the traceability, this sector applies it since many years in a standardized way.
Thus certain elements (mechanical, of fixing or screw of safety) profit from an excellent traceability for economic reasons and from safety.
As a sector always at the technological point, the traceability is a permanent challenge.
So the sector calls upon new techniques of marking and identification: code EAN, code 2d Data Matrix, RFID.
One of the objectives is to guarantee a traceability (and thus identification) of all the components and this, during many years, and even until the end of lifetime of the vehicle.
Other goals of the traceability are of course to optimize the assembly of the vehicles as well as capacity still to facilitate the management of the recalls in the event of defective part.
In the same way, traceability is present in all the logistic chain in order to guarantee the "Just in Time". This is why the identification of conditionings and pallets is also standardized at the request of the sector.
In order to fulfill the requirements of this one, UP trace brings very pointed techniques of marking in addition to more traditional technologies:
For the management of flows and information, the middleware of UP trace answers all the requirements in term of traceability, interface with the lines of production, management of the systems of marking, follow-up of the production (MES), followed pallets to stock (LES) and shippings.
