Serialization

Introduction

SoftGroup® SaTT (Serialization and Track & Trace) is an integrated mass serialization system for centralized management of pharmaceutical packaging lines. It is a scalable, cost-effective and ‘smart’ solution, which can be customized to enterprise-specific needs. The system allows full traceability of any single or aggregate packaging unit within the supply chain. SoftGroup® SaTT complies with GS1’s Electronic Product Code Information Services (EPCIS) standard for holding and communicating serialization-based events, ensuring interoperability with existing systems.

Our Software

SoftGroup® SaTT Stand-alone Software

Serialization is a process of assignment and application of a unique, verifiable product identifier to an individual product item. Meaning, a single item can not only be identified by its product type, expiration date, lot / batch number, etc. associated with the item, but also distinguished from other items of the same type & batch.

SoftGroup® SaTT supports:

  • Sequential series of unique numbers
  • Random series of unique numbers
  • 1D barcode
  • 2D barcode
  • Human-readable

Aggregation

A number of tracked items can be aggregated into one container (Bundle, case, pallet, etc.), which also possesses a unique tracking number.

SoftGroup® SaTT Line Controller

SoftGroup® SaTT Line Contoller is a software system, which controls the entire packaging line (starting, stopping and by-passing of Labeling, Bundle, Case, Pallet modules, etc.) and provides serialization and aggregation of packaged products at line level.

SoftGroup® SaTT Line Contoller software starts the serialization process on item level after the carton is filled. It prints and verifies the batch and serialization data provided by SoftGroup® SaTT Line Contoller or by centralized management system and updates in real time SoftGroup® SaTT Line Contoller SN database. It supports high quality of the printed data up to 300 packages per minute.

After completing the serialization process, the final batch and serialization data are stored in а local database and can be exported or transferred to the SoftGroup® SaTT Site Controller.

SoftGroup® SaTT Site Controller

SoftGroup® SaTT Site Controller is an integrated mass serialization software system for centralized management of pharmaceutical packaging lines. It controls all packaging lines and their modules, regardless of the ERP system, serialization repository, machine vision technologies and packaging automation deployed across the plant.

An external central management system sends the batch and serialization data to SoftGroup® SaTT Site Controller, which stores it in its Batch Info and SN databases. SoftGroup® SaTT Site Controller allows the user to allocate the batch to a specific line depending on production capacity and other performance indicators. SoftGroup® SaTT Site Controller sends the batch and serialization data to the relevant SoftGroup® SaTT Line Controller. In addition, the software can be integrated with different ERP systems, allowing data transfer to international and national repositories, all through a user-friendly interface.

SoftGroup offers an outstanding functionality of SoftGroup® SaTT Site Controller – the system allows allocation of the batch to multiple packaging lines and distributes the batch and serialization data simultaneously to all of them. This significantly decreases the batch production time and increases the production performance.
