Improved track & trace Software for Entire Manufacturing Lifecycle

Monday 2 May 2005 17:01 CET | News

Teradata, a division of NCR, has unveiled Manufacturing Logical Data Model (MLDM) 3.0 which defines how different types of data relate to each other and is a roadmap for building an enterprise data warehouse.

Serving as a pre-packaged blueprint, the Teradata MLDM provides a starting point in the process of building and implementing an enterprise data warehouse. In this upgrade, manufacturers can take uniquely identified items and track them through the whole life cycle beginning with production. Track-and-trace analysis can yield benefits around targeted product recalls, warranty expense management, shrinkage control, counterfeit-item detection and inventory optimization. Manufacturers can also track electronic product code-tagged units to better support radio frequency identification efforts. The second new component of the data model includes a measurement subject area, which is integral to being able to further identify unique items. Examples of measurement include any kind of quality testing done on an item or determining a suppliers performance. Finally, the third new feature area of the MLDM 3.0 provides manufacturers with increased visibility into fleet logistics, including fleet movements and routing, freight billing and invoicing and bid tracking and scoring. The MLDM upgrade will be available beginning in the third quarter of 2005.
