Research output: ThesisMaster's Thesis


Product traceability has a wide range of potential uses. This makes it a desirable goal for companies from various industrial sectors. Due to new regulations, such as the European Corporate Sustainability Due Diligence Directive (CSDDD), aspects of environmental protection and human rights are also moving into the focus of traceability. The objective of this thesis is therefore to design a suitable traceability system for the Maschinenfabrik Liezen. This is realized in compliance of internal requirements and considering the CSDDD. For this purpose, a qualitative literature research is first carried out to create a knowledge base. The identification and labelling of material and products, traceability data and the management of data are defined as essential elements of a traceability system. In the following, three approaches of designing a traceability system are presented and their parallels considered. The most important steps are identified as defining the objectives of a system, the requirements for a system, the analysis of business processes and the selection of suitable components. In addition, the contents of the CSDDD are examined. The scope of application, the due diligence obligations contained therein and the resulting effects for companies are analysed. In addition, the connection between traceability and the CSDDD is elaborated. The knowledge gained is used in the second part of the thesis to achieve the set objective. The designed traceability system pursues the goal of internal traceability of processed raw materials and produced semi-finished products.
