Development of an Integrated Traceability Management System for the Agricultural and Livestock Products

KiJin Jang, KiHong Kim


This study aims to develop an integrated product traceability management system that is based on the post-market traces that include unspecific buyers and producers, the management of product packaging, and supply and demand based on customized consumer communities, with a purpose to improve the export competitiveness of the agricultural and livestock industries. The integrated information system for the agricultural and livestock industries consists of business applications, informatization technologies and platforms, and a raw data collecting platform linked with equipment. This product traceability management system enables not only the holistic management of products produced all over the country and regular purchase but also active management of hand-to-mouth buying and queue-based joint production. In addition, by collecting multifaceted information and offering certifications for the vitalization of the export of agricultural and livestock products, the system enables more effective and systematic management of products. To improve the export competitiveness of the agricultural and livestock industry, this integrated system was developed by introducing the traceability management system, which allows one to obtain and analyze reliable information, manage stocks in a real-time manner, maintain suitable quality, ensure accurate transportation and delivery, and improve customer management.
