Mfg Date on Outer Carton Label

Q

Quality-1

#1
Hi:

Recently, we recieved Customer Spec from various customers asking us to put Mfg Date on the Outer Carton Label, as well as Lot number.

Anyone of you has similar requirements from your customer? If yes, how are you complying? are you also following EIA-556 or AIAG's B10 document?

Thank you

We have a few customers asking for the same thing. We've been able to "work it out" with each/all of them that we will manually write the "Packing" date on the label (whether individual cartons or the master label on the pallet). We have had to demonstrate that, should an issue arise, we have the capability to trace the carton/pallet back to the date/shift/process step/time of manufacture. While not perfect, we are pretty good with our FIFO (First in-First out) system. The biggest "bugaboo" is that our customers are not nearly as good (or don't seem to be) with their FIFO systems. To date there have been no real problems.

Can't say whether we "follow" EIA-556 or AIAG B10 as I'm not familiar with either one of them. Whether or not we are shouldn't matter (IMO) as we have worked with our customers to come up with something that works for both of us.

Just our perspective - hope it helps some.

WAe place two labels on our containers; ours and the customer specific. We print our own labels and include the Mfg. Date. Some customers furnish their own labels, howevere will print the part number and date.

"The biggest "bugaboo" is that our customers are not nearly as good (or don't seem to be) with their FIFO systems."

I can relate to that.

What is it with customers & stock rotation?

We have a 3 day lead time from order to delivery, but <ahem> when we have to rework at a customers site, we find stuff that is weeks if not months old!
