Traceability Control for Important Automotive Safety Components

Case Number 199

last update: April 1, 2008

For quality control, important components affecting safety are physically managed by inscribing them with 2-dimensional codes.
For example, when assembling engines, the 2-dimensional code is read and linked to the engine number, and this data is stored in a database for history management.

Know-How

Parts data (serial number, degree of protection, etc.) is written into a 2-dimensional code, so a large amount of information can be added in a small space.
Ideal for reading 2-dimensional codes embossed onto metal components that are otherwise difficult to read.
Characters printed by the stamping machines that are commonly used in the automobile industry can also be easily read.

Benefit / Efficiency

When a recall occurs, the applicable vehicles can be accurately found, without missing any, to minimize recall costs.
This provides basic information for analyzing problems, and makes it possible to quickly determine the cause.
