ICHNOS is a traceability integrated system developed by Data & Control Systems company, which covers the needs through one and only application.
By observing the products and the production lines of a company, it provides assurance and sequrity for both the consumer and the producer.
It offers the ability for thorough tracing throughout the entire production line, aiming for their quality reservation and the efficiency in searching and projecting every single batch from its production line (producer) to the consumer.
The Data & Control Systems' ICHNOS practical goal is recording, tracing and presenting the information related to the production of each and every product.
This information is being presented after search, using as search criteria the package's label LOTNUMBER of the final product or the code of the materials used for the production.
Thus, the presentation of all phases can be made from the collection of the materials and raw materials used, to the delivery of the final product and reversely.
The ICHNOS system comprises of a main server, where the system's central management application is installed. In cases where other automatation systems are used during the production process, a specially designed protocol is being used in order for the communication to be achieved.
The central management application communicates with a Data base, where all the information is being stored. What is more, the system comes with all the essential devices for generating barcode labels and reading barcodes. These barcode labels that are being placed on the product's package facilitate on the utmost extent the search and presentation of the entire information behind the product's code.
Generally, the production process splits up to the following phases:
- Phase A: Raw material collection by the producer
- Phase B: Raw material concentration and storage
- Phase C: Raw material processing
- Phase D: Final product and packaging generation
- Phase E: Final product delivery to customer
In each of the above phases of the production process, the entire information that labels it is being recorded.
