IT support for logistics processes in production companies

In the harsh operating conditions on international markets, companies face increasing demands for sharper tracking of their products during their whole life cycle and in all distribution channels. The reasons for this are several: the fulfilment of specific requirements imposed by the branch in which the entity operates (e.g. food and beverage industries); developmental and technological complexity of product and explicit customer requirements; the need to raise the level of service as a competitive advantage (e.g. delivery of mail items); and environmental requirements. Therefore, the project aims to develop and implement IT-based monitoring system of a product, which means:

• develop standard building blocks for automated product identification

• develop an information-technology solution for product tracking in its distribution channels,

• develop solutions for monitoring technological development of a complex product through its life cycle,

• integrate the solution with the business information system - enterprise resource planning system
