It is mandatory for every medicine or pharma packaging to have a unique serial code or UID. Project is to build a web application that will provide tracking capabilities for the UID for pharma packaging of drugs. The track feature (TRACK n trace) will track the UID of each package by using vision based scanners, RFIDs, etc. and store the data into a local server. The server will be synced daily with a global server (we are looking for cloud based hosting platforms such as Windows Azure or amazon web services). We have to build the trace functionality (Track n TRACE) by building a web interface where a person with the UID can trace the shipment.
We have to keep historical records for as long as 10 years and build logic on basis of the UID state. We have to provide the details from the database as in when was this package manufactured, when was it shipped, etc. If the UID entered is faulty for example; it wasn’t ever manufactured or if it is over its expiration date then we have to generate corresponding errors and also maintain a log of such entries and send notification to the admins with details of IP, Geography or where the error generated.

  • Competition: A track & trace solution will gather more detailed business intelligence along the channel than pharmaceuticals and their distributors have ever had in the past. This can help them detect areas for further sales generating or product development efforts by identifying such parameters as the best selling product lines. In addition, the pharmaceutical and its distributors will get a tool that can support them in enhancing channel efficiency and fleet management that in turn reduces costs.Compliance: A track & trace solution in conjunction with the current requirements for serialization can ensure regulatory compliance. For example, pharmaceutical companies can easily detect batches for recall, or prove a direct and undisturbed route to market.Counterfeit: A track & trace solution in conjunction with serialization and an authentication function can help ensure that the drugs reach the destination in time, in its original shape and content. The solution can therefore help pharmaceutical companies to recover lost revenue. Finally, the solution can help governments ensure tax revenue and also ensure that consumers avoid getting hurt from counterfeit drugs.Lack of Common StandardsThe lack of common standards has restricted the growth of especially the Vision Inspection based industry because the FDA in the USA allowed the industry to define a common standard. The inertia towards a common standard stems from the fact that some industry players have already implemented solutions and have therefore no incentive to switch to new standardsLack of SecuritySome pharmaceutical companies and security agencies argue that label printing are less secure because they can be easily replicated. While the deploying technology has a risk, there is technological progress to enhance both logical and physical security features.Negative Impact on Production ProcessFor each time production or distribution processes slow down by just a second, pharmaceutical companies incur huge costs. As a result, they have concerns that track & trace systems should not slow down any processes. For example, they ask such questions as how the RFID tags canbe attached to the bottles without slowing down the production process; how can labels be read without slowing down the aggregation and disaggregation processes at the distributor; etc

    • 7. Supply ChainThe pharmaceutical supply chain is acomplex one. Not knowing the processby which pharmaceuticals make theirway to pharmacy shelves can lead torisk in counterfeit products. Track andTrace technology helps manage thisrisk and maintain pedigree by labelingpharmaceuticals and productpackaging with barcodes tags eachpossessing a unique UID.This allows products to be tracked,traced and recalled if necessary.

The numbers generated are alphanumeric and randomized. Integration with many available Printers. E.g. Wolke m600, HSAJET, Alfa Jet, Image, Domino, etc. High resolution machine vision Cameras High Speed Vision inspection system to perform {Multi camera (&at; 4-6 camera) supported system}. Online 2D code inspection with ISO Standard grading analysis. Checking of UID (for its uniqueness and printability)
