Beyond compliance, Industry 4.0, Track and Trace – why and how?

CONFERENCE SESSION # 903 at the 2020 Automatik Exhibition and Conference

Regulatory trends and frameworks amplify the importance of track and trace within the digital supply chain. The European Tobacco Products Directive (TPD), Medical Device Regulations (MDR), and Framework Convention for Tobacco Control (FCTC) have set the pace in this regard. As businesses reshaped their operations to comply with these regulations, they digitised their manufacturing processes and supply chains.

Lessons learned made it apparent that manufacturers should consider track and trace as part of their digital supply chains for compliance reasons, but also for reasons beyond compliance. These include positive outcomes relating to internal governance, quality assurance, data management, other digital improvements, and more.

Join our session to find out how you can – and why you should – include a track and trace capability at the core of your digital supply chain and throughout the industrial automation process.

We will share the following that can help you set up or optimise your digital supply chain with a solid track and trace capability:

  1. Regulatory trends.
  2. Real-life examples.
  3. Valuable lessons learned.
  4. Key technologies.

During the panel discussion you can ask our speakers and track and trace enthusiasts from DNV GL, Worldline and Persequor practical questions. Our host, the Managing Director from Beckhoff Automation, will lead the session.
