From which supplier ingredient lots was this batch composed? Which batches did this pallet feed? Which batches ran next? What’s the effect of this badly performing unit on previous operations? Is there any correlation?These are not easy questions, which are too often left without an answer. In many cases users have to rely on a combination of the operator’s memory, some paper log-sheets and a variety of electronic data sources.With the introduction of the ISA S88.01 standard in 1995 and the work of the SP95 committee,process industries finally receive a structured framework that extends its advantages beyond the pure process control aspects. By applying the standard, a basis for building traceability is available as an intrinsic function of the production control system.This paper focuses on topics like material flow control, process inventory and its relation to ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning), integrating quality control and non-conformity checking in the batch recipe and building product genealogy. This paper explains the methodology behind these topics and how leading enterprises have already successfully applied material tracking.
