Qliktag Use Case - End to End Traceability

Build Track and Trace & Product Traceability Applications

Item Track and Trace solutions & End-to-End Product Traceability Solutions have not only disrupted logistics, supply chain management and distribution, it’s also emerging as the answer to issues around product traceability, food traceability, waste reduction, spoilage prevention, safety and consumer transparency.

With the Qliktag Platform, you can build innovative IoT based track and trace & product traceability applications to keep a track on your raw materials, ingredients, supply chain, shipments, manufacturing batches, product SKUs right down to product instances where serialisation level visibility is required. You can enable virtual digital passports for every instance of your product, log business activities performed on products, their location and movements throughout the product lifecycle from sourcing, manufacturing and right to the consumer.

Maintain a “Digital Twin” or digital product passport for every individual serial instance of a physical product in the real world.

Custom define hierarchies with Entities like components, ingredients, materials used, batch, manufacturing LOT, shipping pallet & their dependencies just as they exist in your organization

Use the APIs to connect your own scanning app, barcode readers, tag readers, RFID hardware or scanning devices at various scan points to log events against the products as they move through their journey

Use the “Visual Interaction / Micro Web Applications” designer to make the traceability data and product journey accessible visually to consumers or other stakeholders 

Leverage the GS1 EPCIS data model standards to maintain interoperability of traceability data globally

Building Tracking & Traceability Solutions with the Qliktag Platform

Case Study

A leading household cookware brand approached Qliktag with a request to demo a very basic B2B product traceability solution for the supply chain & a consumer side traceability digital interaction that could be used to view a trace log of the products journey to the consumer.

Entities were created for Batch, Product SKU, Serial Item and Trace Log. Data models were then linked to these entities and associations/dependencies created between the entities to match the business process. Data for some test products were added and an iOS mobile app was then developed which would allow a hypothetical company such as a manufacturing unit, transporter, warehouse, distributor, importer, exporter or retailer within the organization’s supply chain to scan a data matrix code on the product batch. Based on the GS1 EPCIS standard for visibility event data, the app would then automatically log the company name, the business event / activity, disposition, date, time and geolocation writing this information against the Tracelog entity instance for that batch or serial item in case a batch has been opened and a serial item within the batch was scanned. 

A digital interaction was designed using the Qliktag Interaction Editor which can be activated by consumers by tapping an NFC sticker on the packaging or scanning a QR code bringing up a chronological listing of events and locations for that item along with a map representation of the products journey and events leading upto them.
