Many companies are obliged to manufacture a product with proving liability across the whole process chain. This should guarantee traceability of end products or proof of liability for raw materials. International standards like the FDA regulation 21 CFR 11, GMP or EU norm 178 leave no room to maneuver, particularly for food producers and pharmaceutical companies. Producers of packaging material or suppliers of safety-related products like automotive supplies are also subject to strict regulations.
HYDRA Tracking & Tracing (TRT) supports manufacturers to comply with these requirements by consequently tracing lots and batches and complete product documentation (Electronic Batch Record). The module also offers functions to monitor manufacturing processes up to process interlocking. Modern technologies (e. g. RFID, barcode) are used to identify material batches/lots/batches or serial numbers. Plausibility checks ensure that only approved materials are used. In case of a recall a possible damage is reduced to the minimum - bearing in mind consumer safety and economic efficiency.
