The Need For 360° Traceability

For pharmaceutical, chemical, and food companies, **360 traceability** is essential for meeting regulatory compliance and ensuring product safety. However, achieving end-to-end traceability across the supply chain is complex.

Why 360 Traceability Matters

Under regulations like the FDA’s Code of Federal Regulations Title 21 (CFR) and Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA), companies must track batch details across all stages of production and distribution. This protects consumers and provides accountability if issues emerge.

With 360 traceability, manufacturers gain complete visibility into ingredients, processes, test results, storage conditions, shipping, and more. This facilitates rapid response to quality problems or audits.

Overcoming Traceability Challenges with Technology

Basic “batch traceability” gives partial insights but lacks a unified view across siloed data sources. Modern platforms like ProcessForce provide relationship mapping and visualizations for true 360 traceability.

ProcessForce consolidates production data with inventory, orders, quality testing, and other systems. This connects the digital thread across departments into an integrated interface.

Using Predictive Analytics for Proactive Monitoring

360 traceability data powers predictive capabilities to flag potential problems before they occur. Statistical models can identify anomalies and trends that indicate emerging risks or deficiencies.

With proactive monitoring, companies can improve audit performance, reduce recalls, and strengthen operational excellence. This takes traceability to the next level for a smarter, safer supply chain.

Driving Value with End-to-End Traceability

By overcoming data fragmentation, businesses gain a competitive advantage through 360 traceability. This allows rapid recalls, informed decision making, and continuous process improvements.
