Decision tree

A decision tree is a series of questions and answers to help understand where you are in your traceability journey.

The system you choose must fit within your current business model. Using a process like this quick start guide will help identify areas of business improvement to save time, money and labour. Remember:

  • Use the decision tree to help understand your needs from a traceability system.
  • Knowing your traceability system needs will help technology providers assist with their services.

Ask questions – speak to your supply chain partners and industry colleagues about how they use traceability in their businesses.
