Get real-time insight into batch genealogy with our product traceability software

Establish a complete product genealogy by tracing batch-managed products and components across your supply network – using SAP Global Batch Traceability. This real-time product traceability system links tracked objects to business activities such as deliveries and purchase orders – and makes it easier to find the root cause of product defects and trigger targeted holds, withdrawals, or recalls.

Why SAP Global Batch Traceability?

Because it gives you real-time batch and product traceability across your global supply chain. In the event of a recall or withdrawal, the software ensures compliance with legal reporting timelines and can help you minimize costs and corporate risk exposure. With SAP Global Batch Traceability (SAP GBT) you can: 

  • Minimize the impact a product recall may have on your customers and their customers€™
  • Use batch analytics and graphical tools to investigate product issues and understand root causes
  • Track and trace individually identified objects across SAP and non-SAP systems
  • Get a complete, real-time view of your product supply chain
  • Enhance data quality by managing broken traceability links across
    systems

Learn how SAP Global Batch Traceability can simplify the lives of business users and IT staff:

Functional Capabilities

Analyze your global batch network
Interactively explore your global batch network to determine how a batch was created and used at various stages of the supply chain. Display your network as a graphic or a table.

Find multiple batches
Use a sample report – online or in a background job – to find tracked objects for multiple batches in one run. Display the results as a downloadable list.

Search for batches
If you don’t know which batches need to be investigated, you can search for them in the system. For example, you can search for all batches with the same production date produced on a specific production line.

Use worklists
Use worklists to facilitate analysis of your global batch traceability network. Group tracked objects together for deeper analysis – or share a worklist with colleagues to collaborate on solving an issue.

  • Transactional data, such as production orders
  • Organizational data, including the plant where the batch was produced
  • ERP batch master and classification data
     

Integrate external parties
Transfer information about the movement of goods to SAP Global Batch Traceability – from both SAP and non-SAP systems. Support wider visibility between partners, subcontractors, customers, and your company.

Integrate handling units
