Increase throughput and launch new products faster

With Tracker, each serialized item that moves through  your production or packaging process can be tracked. You get the information you need to optimize your manufacturing process while managing inventory levels and locations, scheduling resources, and routing materials much more effectively and automatically.

 

  • Collects data from many automated sensors and readers, including bar codes, RF tags, and mechanical tag systems
  • Maintains detailed data for all jobs in the system, including content, status, location, and production process counts
  • Provides routing control of production orders through the production facility
  • Facilitates Build to Order / Build to Sequence
  • Ensures building it right the first time

Implement Lean production

With Production Routing and Order Execution Management, Tracker helps manufacturers and suppliers understand real-time sequence requirements and handle situations that occur on the plant floor when the sequence is broken – enabling manufacturers to build right the first time. It helps facilitate a large reduction in WIP inventories along with finished goods inventories while meeting production targets.

 

  • Enables Lean manufacturing
  • Collects genealogy and traceability data for audit trails and regulatory compliance
  • Enhanced visualization: provides graphic screens to display tracking paths and item information, and reflects production control commands

Improve inventory & production with real-time information

Better manage inventory, production orders, and routing materials with detailed data using Tracker. This software solution empowers your operators with real-time information and control of their operations to accommodate a variety of production flow adjustments.

 

  • Coordinates the supply chain
  • WIP inventory control
  • Find critical jobs
  • Meet production schedules
  • Manufacturing resource utilization

Achieve real-time flow management of jobs

Tracker provides the ability to not only track the real-time location of jobs on the production floor, but can be configured to perform routing logic on the movement of jobs throughout the facility. This unique capability allows manufacturers to manage the manufacturing, routing, and delivery of multiple product components into complex product assemblies.

 

Keeps cycle counts, repair information, and carrier/container status online; it accommodates different types of carriers and containers within a system, allowing you to track products even when the manufacturing process transforms them.

Standards for interoperability and visibility

Tracker delivers a standards-based open ecosystem for superior interoperability and the foundation for IoT. As part of the Proficy family, Tracker reflects GE Digital’s commitment to:

 

  • OPC UA
  • MQTT
  • ISA 18.2
  • ISA 101

 

With Tracker, you can gain visibility across disparate, disconnected systems as well as a blueprint for manufacturing across enterprise-wide operations for a simpler, reusable manufacturing infrastructure. 

 

Furthermore, through CIMPLICITY HMI/SCADA, you gain a powerful, widely-used SCADA system that includes device connectivity (both native and OPC), graphical development, alarm management, marquee and pager interfaces, client management, and much more.
