Trace engine

March 1, 2009



Lawson’s M3 Trace Engine 3.0 is designed to help food and beverage companies strengthen and simplify the process of tracking ingredients and finished products through the supply chain. The standalone, Web-based traceability system operates with the Lawson M3 Enterprise Management System and other farming or food lab software systems, and allows users to share trace data, such as product origin, transport data and other attributes online with retailers and regulators. Quality and food safety managers can use the trace engine to visualize internal production processes in real time, identify potential ingredient issues and respond to events or problems before a product leaves the production facility. The Lawson Trace Engine also helps simplify compliance with current US and European Union food safety regulations while providing tools to help users adjust to future requirements.
