Traceability is the capability of tracking every part or product along all the manufacturing process, from the reception of the raw material to the moment of shipping the final product to the final destiny.
Laser Galicia guarantees full traceability of every part and product, including material certificates, dimensional reports, assembly instructions, time needed for every process, operator that does every process, quality inspector, location of the parts, etc.
We count with a customized ERP that allow us to register the necessary data of every customer and every part, to program our machines and define and register all the necessary processes to comply with the requirements of our customers.
We have real time information about the status and location of every part in every moment of the production process. This allows us to react right after a problem occurs and to immediately inform our customers to cause the minimum impact possible.
We are certified to supply the most demanding sectors like: aeronautics, automation, rail, ect. for whom the traceability is indispensable.
Why is traceability important?
We usually think that traceability is only relevant for high demanding sectors like food and medicine, however, every modern manufacturer, even from the less restrictive industries should make traceability a priority. At Laser Galicia, traceability has always been a must to improve quality and efficiency by giving our customers real-time information about their orders and by facilitating root-cause analysis in case of a non-conforming product. In this way corrective actions are more efficient and occurrence in almost impossible.
Benefits of traceability
- Root cause analysis
Having access to all the information about the steps taken to manufacture a product, allows us to dig deep, and find the root cause of problems, minimizing impact and quickly solving the problem.
- Continuos improvement
Having access to the flow diagram of a product facilitates continuous improvement. Improvement opportunities are lost when information is not accessible. Knowing where and when bottlenecks and delays occur makes real-time optimization possible.
- Quality and engagement
Part traceability along the entire production line can also help find key points where quality check-ups should be added. It also increases accountability and engagement on the shop floor.
- An obligation
In highly regulated industries, manufacturers do not need to weigh the benefits of traceability, since it is compulsory. Laser Galicia is involved in very restrictive industries, so traceability is fully implemented in our company.
