The InterTech Development Company has released its Component Tracker System, which, it says, offers plastics manufacturers cost-effective ways to collect and archive test data for product-lifecycle management systems and quality assurance; the system "integrates bar coding, scan and software tracking of each part and batch, including all leak test, functional test and lifecycle test data related to each component." The company further says that its Component Tracker System provides full traceability in the event of product recalls, and also provides data for process optimization to streamline production, and storage of all test data at each production stage for statistical process control data that underlies most quality assurance systems and full ISO 9001 compliance.
