What is Bi-directional Traceability?

‘Forward trace‘ is the ability to trace a raw ingredient or component from its original received supplied lot, through various production phases until it becomes a finished product. The finished product is ultimately inventoried shipped to a customer, and logged against the invoice number. ‘Backward trace‘ is the ability to trace a finished product (usually sent to a customer) through the processes to its source batch, then back again to the source ingredients and the original supplier.

Why is Electronic Tracing Important?

Anybody in the food industry will understand why global batch traceability is essential. Traceability can be a challenge for any QA professional when pencil and paper is the method to obtain the data. Handwriting errors can result in unqualified results. Manually keystroking data into an ERP system can be risky and prone to mistakes. Both methods can generate risk for a business. V5 traceability uses production software screens designed to eliminate the threat by validating lot information using barcode scanners, labels, and touch screen technology – placing the data within the ERP, saving time, mistakes and money. Ultimately electronic traceability makes your business perform better and without the unnecessary risk to the company.
