MaterialTrack™ functionality provides real-time material management and traceability in FactoryTalk® Batch execution systems, enhancing corporate inventory solutions and allowing more effective management of materials and recipes.
When integrated with company-wide inventory management systems, MaterialTrack complements ERP-level resource management by collecting the detailed material and equipment tracking information needed for optimizing your supply chain and e-business fulfillment.
MaterialTrack manages and tracks the use of materials, vessels, containers and pallets, and permanent and transient storage. It also provides automatic support for bulk containers with multiple lots.
- Assign attributes to materials that are managed by MaterialTrack. Attributes identify material lots, sub-lots, and types.
- Use the MaterialTrack Editor to manage equipment, lots, and containers.
- Take advantage of inventory prioritization, which allows you to specify the order in which containers should be used during the execution of a recipe.
