Product Traceability


A complete audit trail of inventory activity enables Orbitall to provide users with details concerning any identifiable batch of product.

The image above depicts a "tree view" showing the history of sub-assembly and raw material usage for all levels of build for a selected product.

Each node in the "tree" represents a component that is included in the bill-of-material for the top-most selected product and if any component is a sub-assembly with its own bill-of-material then successive nodes may be expanded to identify lower level component details relating to the sub-assembly itself.

The traceability setting for a product identifies 3 different levels of monitoring - Untraced, Supply or Batch. The former indicates that all inventory for a designated product and unit-of-measure combination will be treated as a single audited position whilst the Supply and Batch settings ensure that inventory is tracked by supply chain source or individual identifiable inventory receipts respectively.

If expiry dates have been associated with particular batches of product then those dates are included as relevant information.


The inventory transaction list window incorporates a filter that enables the user to focus on operational activities that have been recorded and affected the stock held for a particular, product or individual identifiable batch of product.

The example shown identifies a Purchase Order Receipt of 20 packs of Large Cams each containing 25 individual items. At the point of receipt Orbitall issued a prompt to the user entering details of the receipt and based upon their response "automatically converted" this supply chain delivery to an inventory position of 500 individual Large Cams on the basis that inventory is primarily "monitored" in the latter unit-of-measure.

A few days after receipt this inventory was Relocated from its receiving warehouse location GOODS-IN to a designated area identified as BIN008 and some days later 36 Large Cams were required for a production process - Route Card Issue.
