Traceability of process data

Plant Historian PTT - Production Tracking & Tracing

Tracking & Tracing - traceability of process data


With the help of RFID, the materials intended for different production units (furnace, casting machine, packaging unit ...) are documented - which prevents material from being processed at the wrong production unit.

The system is installed on lift trucks, elevating trucks and trucks. It collects, documents and controls material withdrawals and accompanies any material activitiy throughout the whole production process. All the recorded parameters like date, time, weight and temperature as well as any information on the production units are checked for plausibility. This process prevents the materials from getting to a wrong production place.

The correct procedure is displayed by order. For special batches, cleaning, emptying, maintenance and makeready processes, there is a special procedure wth required password release.


Traceability of process data, Tracking & Tracing
Plant Historian PTT - production tracking & tracing - traceability of process data


  • Tracking & Tracing – traceability of recorded process data
  • Fault-free flow of material to the greatest possible extent
  • Planning and control of the material flow
  • The right material according to the specified process parameters - quantity and quality - (e.g. temperature, volume etc.) at the right production unit
  • Process security and transparency
  • Intuitive user interface
  • Guidance of the production employee throughout the entire manufacturing process - from material withdrawal to the filling of the dosing furnace
  • Transparent and trouble-free shift procedures
  • Cost saving due to fault-free production processes


  • Plausibility check: e.g. right proportioning in right dosing furnace
  • Monitoring of e.g. cleaning times
  • Prioritization concerning the starting of e.g. dosing furnaces
  • Tracking & Tracing: monitoring of the flow of material
  • Equipment occupancy on the basis of the master data of the ERP system
  • Traceability in cases of complaints
  • Intuitive touch operation e.g. in the lift truck cockpit
  • One display for many applications (filling camera, rear view camera, fill level indicator of dosing furnaces etc.)


  • Offline functionality
  • Synchronization if WLAN access point is available
  • Lift truck locking possible
  • Direct indication of filling levels at the lift truck terminal
