Part / Process Tracking

Posted on Posted in Work

FACSTrack™ enables serial numbers, lot numbers, batch numbers and similar quantifiers to be tracked throughout the production process. FACSTrack™ guarantees your product follows the correct process path and that all assigned criteria and inspections are met. The result is a product that has been everywhere it should, passed all inspections and is packed properly. A complete part history is made from the first operation to the warehouse.

Requirements

FACSTrack™ requires a complete installation of FACS™ including the FACSTrack™ developer and service module. These server products utilize real time services that process a track key and track ID and keeps track of them through the process. FACSTrack™ nodes are your process locations through which the tracked part must pass. A node requires of one of three software programs, FSWorks™, FSTrack™ or FSPack™.

Creating Nodes

Your process will consist of nodes. A node is defined as a combination of an Operation and Machine. FACSTrack™ utilizes the nodes generate in FACS™ Part Manager. In Part Manager you create specification plans for your part. Specification plans without measurement features are utilized by FSTrack™ and FSPack™. Therefore, utilizing Part Manger to create a POM for each step of your process will in essence create all of your FACSTrack™ nodes.
