Track & Trace with the Y path from ifm

From production to logistics - reduce the fault rate in production! Traceability is used to keep track and ensure the quality of all production parameters: when, where and in what conditions was your product made.

Through timely monitoring of quality key figures, product traceability can reduce quality-related downtime. This involves an increase of the First Pass Yield (FPY) as well as a reduction of internal nonconformity costs. In addition, product traceability provides protection against recourse claims in case of recall actions.


  • Period, production date
  • Product type (article number)
  • Product series (lot number)
  • Production part (part number), parts used (batch related)

Recording of all product-related data via:

  • Barcode or data matrix code
  • Chip card
  • Magnetic cards
  • RFID, etc.

Traceability in logistics

  • Automatic recording of all goods at any time, e.g. by means of RFID
  • Avoidance of inventory errors and optimisation of stock capacity and inventories
  • Automatic target/actual comparison between inventory and order or delivery
  • Complete image of the real world in the system world

Application example: Track & Trace

From production to logistics - keep an eye on your production and reduce the fault rate.
