While the overall concept of product traceability is not new, the automated tracking of product down to the individual part and component level has proven to have even greater bottom-line impact.  The most permanent way to ensure complete quality control of the production process is to directly mark a part with a machine-readable code and track it through its entire life cycle.  This is called Direct Part Mark Traceability.

DPM can be used to optimize line performance, identify defects, increase first-pass yields and as a result, reduce the costs of manufacturing.
