JETCAM CrossTrack Composite Material Tracking and Management System

CrossTrack was developed from the ground up to resolve the complex issue of managing orders, materials, nests, parts/plies and kits. Traceability, especially in aerospace is critical – CrossTrack delivers this, giving complete visibility from the initial material, tracking the order, all individual elements and through to the finished part. Companies using CrossTrack benefit from a massive reduction in the reliance on paper, much greater accuracy, as once entered information is carried electronically through the system, and real time access to live order, material and nest data across the network.
