The need for manufacturers to focus on compliance and traceability initiatives is increasing significantly across the globe as commercial pressures grow to meet regulatory mandates. By mitigating the risk of product recalls, reducing manufacturing costs and quality controlling end-to-end traceability of processes, Eastek will also be able to successfully reduce inefficiencies within the supply chain.

In addition to MES, ERP and the using professional services (i.e. UPS, FedEx, etc.), in traceability solutions, system capabilities depending on the client and product may include serialized container and individual part tracking; built-in barcode printing and scanning, RFID, and direct part marking; and detailed traceability from any point in the manufacturing process.

In principle, our traceability takes two forms.  The first, product tracking, is the capability to follow the path of a specified unit of a product through the supply chain as it moves between our facilities. Products are routinely tracked for obsolescence, inventory management, and logistical purposes. The second, product tracing, is the capability to identify the origin of a particular unit and/or batch of product located within the supply chain by reference to records held upstream in the supply chain. Products are tracked for purposes, such as product recall and investigating complaints (CAPAs).

Eastek puts heavy emphasis on traceability. We use traceability to better manage customer relations. By using it to reduce the time required to react to customer complaints, for example, we can typically ensure higher levels of customer satisfaction.

Traceability also helps enhance the quality of the process and, as a direct result, the quality of the service or solution provided.
