For many companies, lot or batch tractability is critical. Industries such as Pharmaceuticals, Food, and Chemicals require stringent batch traceability. SYSPRO already holds much of the required Lot Traceability functionality where one can track a raw material batch or lot number into the business and then through work in progress and ultimately to the end customer. However, the difficulty is implementing these systems on the factory or warehouse floor.
Most lot traceability within companies becomes hard to manage if a WMS solution is not in place. As volumes of transactions grow, manual systems start to fail. Even ERP systems become very difficult to maintain. Implementing DATASCOPE with lot traceability turned on will resolve much of this headache.
Due to the nature of the TrackIDs used in DATASCOPE WMS, we hold much of the lot data in the unique pallet record in the database. This assists the user when tracking the many movements of this particular pallet or drums.
Serial tracking is the other requirement in many industries. DATASCOPE WMS allows for serial tracking of all picking operations to maintain records of which customer bought which serial numbers.
