AUTOMOTIVE CHALLENGES

The automotive industry is shifting towards globalized platforms and standardised vehicle architectures. While this streamlines production, a single flawed part will result in broader, more detrimental effects to the supply chain. A reliable Traceability system can minimise these problems.

In 2014, 19 different automakers conducted what NHTSA has called “the largest and most complex safety recall in U.S. history.”¬† to address defective air bag¬†inflators made by Takata Corporation, costing them $1 billion.

In 2016 Volkswagen had to recall over 11 million cars worldwide due to a non-compliance emissions control system. This resulted in a $14.7 billion settlement.

It pays to have a comprehensive, easily accessible record of each part at every stage of production to minimise disruptions. Product recalls, if not handled efficiently can result in considerable losses to and irreparable brand damage.

A COMPLETE SOLUTION TO AUTOMOTIVE TRACEABILITY

CHALLENGES
Encoding key information into a durable marking that can withstand the harsh conditions.
To ensure quality of the codes, prevent no-reads down the line and be able to track parts throughout their life cycle.
To be able to read codes accurately and be small enough to fit in to tight spaces

To achieve reliable long distance communication within a high-mix production line.
Capturing and utilizing the date collected as much as possible without making the system overly complex.
