Template Information
Use this template as follows: Step 1 refers to the part of the supply chain that goes back one step, i.e., all the products your company receives. Consider and record all raw materials, including batch or date codes. This will ensure that you can trace an end product back to its point of origin to determine contamination. It also allows you to exclude good, safe batches from recall. Step 2 is about the work-in-process, which is the phase between the receipt of the raw product and the distribution of the final product. Step 3 is the shipping sheet that allows you to track where your products go, which is the "One Step Forward" part of the supply chain. These records allow you to contact the buyers of your products if there are any problems with the delivery.
