AGGREGATION

THE COMPLETE PROCESS


Tracking and Tracing your products at any point in the value chain is beneficial for any industry. Your genuine product must reach the end user to ensure value, quality and reliability. Track & Trace solutions improve product safety, reducing the possibilities of counterfeiting, and guarantee the reliability of your supply chain. By implementing Track & Trace, you are able to follow and monitor your products throughout the life cycle.


INTRODUCING AGGREGATION


Aggregation is the combination of serialized single products packaged together on different levels and identified by unique serial numbers. The process of creating these packages optimizes product traceability which makes it safer, easier and faster, due to a higher comprehension of the contents within. Aggregation can be implemented on any existing production lines.


The concept of aggregation is best explained with the use of this familiar hierarchy concept: 


  • Single serialized products are referred to as “children” and are packaged together into a bundle, which is also known as the “parent”.

  • When this package is then put together with other bundles, they are then referred to as the “child” and packaged into a case “parent”.

  • This process can then develop from case to pallet.

  • Each level of aggregation is given a unique serial number, which when scanned, provides details of all the serials within the entire package.
 
 

THE FUTURE OF AGGREGATION

 

As the world’s most comprehensive, reliable and widespread Track & Trace platform, we can implement a wide range of flexible aggregation solutions, taking into consideration different workloads - complete with both hardware and software.


  • Automatic process: fully integrated on high throughput bundling machines, case packers and palletizing stations.

  • Semi-automatic.

  • Manual procedure: with standalone modules designed for multiple end-of-line operations and higher flexibility across the packaging process.

Our solution architects develop the most efficient aggregation solutions both on Antares Vision serialized lines and those serialized with external vendors.


We are well equipped to manage software and data challenges to ensure results based on know-how, experience and the highest quality of fully scalable turnkey solutions.

 YOUR GROWING ASSETS

 


/    OPTIMIZE YOUR LOGISTIC OPERATIONS

We anticipate and understand the growing demands of your logistic operations. By implementing aggregation, your logistics can quickly comprehend package contents without dissembling them, therefore saving vast amounts of time which will increase overall productivity. Aggregating will also ensure product is not stored over its expiry date, thus minimizing wastage.

 

/    TAKE CARE ABOUT YOUR OEE

The aggregation implementation process is delicate and demands the care of true expertise, could ensure minimal impact for your production OEE. Improving the full end to end traceability on your production lines with aggregation will benefit your entire production and supply chain.

 

/    SAVE THE INTEGRITY OF YOUR DATA

Our data integrity protection safeguards your data, even within a multi-vendor environment. Our full compatibility with existing external solutions protects your current production environment, ensuring workflow continuity and the security of your data.


/    LEVERAGE DATA TO IMPROVE YOUR FUTURE

The Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE), from serialized line and managed by aggregation solutions, can be elevated with the introduction of AVionics. AVionics is the comprehensive tool designed to monitor the production efficiency and performance of your line in real time, based on predictive analysis and smart analytics. AVionics works with data not only taken from existing serialized lines and aggregation but also from the packaging machines and all other production equipment. Therefore, it is possible to have a full overview in which you are able to monitor the complete performance.
