Abstract

One of the major problems in the manufacturing industry consists of the fact that many parts from different lots are supplied and mixed to a certain degree during an indeterminate number of stages, what makes it very difficult to trace each of these parts from its origin to its presence in a final product. In order to overcome this limitation, we have worked towards the design of a solution aiming to improve the traceability of the products created by STIWA group. This solution is based on the exploitation of graph databases which allows us to significantly reduce response times compared to traditional relational systems.
