Leading2Lean introduces TraceCloud alert system

December 9, 2016—Leading2Lean, a cloud-based lean manufacturing solutions provider, introduces TraceCloud, a CloudDISPATCH engine designed to identify possible manufacturing problems across disparate systems in different plants.

It’s common for companies to use different traceability systems for each of its plants. Discovering issues and tracking them across various systems can take days and tie up precious IT resources ultimately needed in other areas. Some discovery processes may even include shutting down production. With TraceCloud, companies can access aggregated data from multiple systems and find issues in minutes.

When a problem is detected—because of a faulty product, for example—TraceCloud is able to alert production teams about the problem, and allow for quick access to the data necessary to identify the root cause. Manufacturers can then contain the suspect material, ultimately preventing the quality issue from being perpetuated or shipped. Once the system has contained the material, TraceCloud enables quick decision-making based on facts and data collected from systems at various production plants and even suppliers.

TraceCloud offers seven key components:

  • Traceability and genealogy: Manufacturers can trace all the way through source material to make decisions based on facts.
  • Unites existing systems: TraceCloud combines data from multiple systems and sites, enabling standardization and eliminating the need for replacement of current systems in existing or newly acquired plants.
  • Alerting and containment: With TraceCloud, a user can notify all relevant parties upon discovering a lot-based or serialized issue. The system will identify the location of all corresponding product issues, and contain the faulty product.
  • Dynamic data collection: Leading2Lean’s dynamic-schema architecture lets manufacturers collect variable data length and type, as well as counting to extend product trace detail to any degree desired. Collect machines used, participating operators, settings or readings in the process, and combine bill-of-materials (BOM) from both serialized or lot to create the complete genealogy tree.
  • Eleven9s: Leading2Lean performs above industry benchmarks, with Eleven9s durability of historical data.
  • Year-Long-Term data storage: Maintain your data for 20-plus years. TraceCloud maintains your data for as long as needed, and the system allows anyone to retrieve data instantly when required.
