SteelTrace is a digital platform that gathers all quality-related data for steel products, in real-time from manufacturers.
It offers you transparency and traceability throughout your supply chain.
By digitizing international norms, and requirements, control and monitoring processes are automated and instant.
This allows you to convert from compliance by audit to compliance by design.
Real-time information and data verification enables the early detection of non-conformities during the production.
This ensures that no materials are wasted on faulty products.
All data is digitally secured using blockchain technology, ensuring data validity and trust.
End customers are always able to verify if a certificate is real and unchanged.
Quality management processes are automated in the SteelTrace platform.
This allows all users to focus on what matters, instead of wasting long hours performing manual tasks.
With the SteelTrace platform, quality-related data is captured directly from the mill.
Therefore, SteelTrace provides a centralised location, with a real-time overview of the data for all users, including real-time product certifications and endorsments.
SteelTrace uses a standardized workflow and format when gathering data from manufacturers and suppliers.
All the data shared in the ecosystem is in a structured and standardized format.
This helps guarantee the completeness and coherency of the information and eliminate the silo effect.
Rather than waiting until the end of a project to share PDFs and large files with your operator, Steeltrace provides instant, secure sharing of documentation with operators during a project.
Digitally transfer data with the click of a button, and obtain approvals from operators instantly.
“With SteelTrace you certify products in real time during the production process. […] All steps are automatically recorded irrefutably in time using blockchain and there for traceable and transparent to their customer”
Mauro Angeretti, Owner - M.E.G.A
“Standardization of the certificate layout combined with automated checks increases the efficiency of the review.”
Wim Poppe, Sr. Inspection & Quality Engineer / Corrosion Engineer - TotalEnergies
We all find it annoying, but we know they exist: fakers in the steel industry. Counterfeiters of certificates not only undermine confidence in the steel supply chain, they sometimes even contribute to failures and errors within a project.
The value of an asset is directly related to the information that is known about its history. That's why traceability is so incredibly important within the oil and gas industry. Assets not only need to function properly, but they also need to be financially viable. Especially now.
The traceability of steel products is crucial. That's why in this series we are looking at the Cradle to Grave traceability of steel. In this article, you will read more about the legacy of future engineers, and the impact that traceability will have on the world.
