1. Reception of supplies

Supplies are received into the system, checked, weighed and labeled. All traceability information is entered, and supplies are assigned to the stock. In the fresh products industry, it is vital to monitor the raw material stock to reduce loss and to age products to the optimal stage.

2. Raw material inventory

Raw material stock levels are always known. Items can be assigned to a stock location as they enter the inventory. For each item in stock, information such as quantity, age, expiration date, location, and supplier are essential for production planning and scheduling. When items are assigned to different production lines, accurate information is available about raw material usage, cost and origin of raw materials per production line.

The system provides full support for in-process weighing, inventory control, packing, giveaway monitoring and finished goods outer case marking. Orders can be processed online, pallets packed automatically and labels printed based on real-time data. End products can be traced back to the exact supplier’s delivery.

5. Final goods inventory

Finished goods are moved into inventory or produced directly to stock during the packing process. Products can be palletized and located within the stock. Levels are known at each point in time with all relevant data available, such as age, expiry dates, and time in stock. With online mobile scanners, inventory transactions are performed scan-by-scan, providing up-to-date information.
