Recent trends in industrial production are marked by rapid changes in structures of collaboration or competition, as well as the spreading of customized production and more intricate customer demands regarding quality and visibility of delivery processes. All this calls for efficient means of tracking and tracing beyond company borders-a technological step which is, in principle, available, yet, it is de facto restricted to isolated proprietary solutions excluding countless small and medium-sized enterprises from their application. The EU-funded project TraSer (Identity-Based Tracking and Web-Services for SMEs) was started with the goal of overcoming these obstacles by providing a free, open-source tracking and tracing solution platform which would allow SMEs to set up and maintain tracking and tracing services across company borders requiring low costs of initial investment and operation. The paper presents main goals and envisaged results of the project, as well as state-of-the-art of related topics.
