During the entire production process, a considerable amount of Information is stored in the Steel Projects PLM database thanks to all the feedback collected from the workshop or the erection site. Once processed, these data can be used to edit the traceability files that you need.
Steel Projects PLM allows you to save all the operations carried out on each piece (who, when, where, how?) thanks to the automatic feedback from CNC machines, and manual feedback from manual workstations, including quality control stations.
Many other features of the software also allow to enrich and facilitate traceability management: management of revisions, checking of the feasibility of parts, management of the user rights, management of constraints related to norms (restrictions of some tooling operations according to execution class for example, etc).
In order to follow the material as soon as it is received, our solutions allow to create an ID of traceability associated with the cast number given by the steel supplier. This ID is then tracked throughout the production process. Operators on CNC machines or manual workstations input that number on parts that are being produced. In addition, information related to the consumable used can be recorded. For example, which weld bead and which barrel of paint were used for which part or assembly?
Unique identifications of parts are possible for those that are in multiple quantities, thanks to the imports of detailed information from the CAD software. There is also the possibility to adjust them inside Steel Projects PLM after the imports (External or internal GUID’s). This level of accuracy allows to manage the maximum traceability requirements possible.
At any stage of the process, edit barcodes/QR codes and labels associated to facilitate the identification of pieces, raw material and remnants, in order to save time and avoid errors.
