Upstream Traceability
Unlike its name, it initiates from the raw materials received from the supplier and follows the chain to the finished products delivered to customers. Note: Think of it as Where Used else the name might confuse you.
Downstream Traceability 
Like Upstream Traceability, downstream tracebility has a confusing name and is often mistaken as upstream direction. To save the confusion think of it as where supplied. It basically follows the product in the other direction which is from customer to the different suppliers of raw material.

Various lines show the stock moves associated with the product. There are several stock moves that are traced due to the Bill of Materials attached to the product.
