The ability to track data by serial number is very important. With Lighthouse software, we have reduced the amount of time this takes from days to minutes. For me, this is priceless.

The QIC and Lighthouse Solution – Shopfloor-Online
Shopfloor-Online is a comprehensive, web-based MES Software solution that provides a complete and real-time view of all aspects of Manufacturing Operations Management. A major component of Shopfloor-Online is in the area of Traceability which is vital to food safety.
Traceability means manufacturers have to record each lot of materials consumed in each step of the manufacturing process. They must be able to take any pack of finished goods and be able to report what went in it, when and where throughout the process. This means tracking back through semi-finished goods processes, back to incoming raw materials from suppliers. Shopfloor-Online is naturally positioned to capture this traceability information at the point of consumption by operators on the shop floor.
