Abstract

Discusses the concept of materials traceability showing how it can produce up to 80 per cent of the benefits of total quality management. Identifies a number of critical control points (CCPs) in any production process. These are the points at which things could go wrong and where the source of complaint may be found. Demonstrates how a sophisticated system can record data at each of these CCPs leading to improved efficiency.
