Companies in the food production sector are faced with complex situations on a daily basis, generated both by regulations in the field, the dynamics of processes and the realities of day-to-day business.
The risks inherent in this type of business must be carefully managed to protect sensitive profit margins.
Due to the discrete nature of food production, it must meet a number of specific requirements, the main one being traceability of raw materials to the product and the customer. Also of particular importance are the traceability of batches of raw materials and finished products, the diversity of packaging of the finished product, the tracking of concentrations and densities, etc.
The integration of production, distribution, transport and retail processes is a critical need for food producers, both in terms of process optimisation and from the perspective of preventing losses, including losses from theft.
- Dynamic processes with variable recipes
- Phased production
- Supply Chain Management (SCM)
- Traceability of batches of raw materials – finished products
- Workplaces with large territorial dispersion
- Processes with short delivery times
- Optimization of supply processes
- Automation of deliveries to own stores
- Shipping, sales through agents
- Technological loss control
- Perishability control
- Customer and supplier management
- Multiple units of measurement/item
- Quantifiable attributes: concentration, density, weight, and volume, etc.
- Replaceable Items
- Diversity and new assortments
- Multiple packaging and labeling
- Inventory with mobile equipment, barcodes
- Actual costs, product level costing
- Estimated cost / actual cost analysis by structure
What we help with
The EMSYS solution integrates the production flows into the overall company resources providing complete management of food industry specific processes according to mandatory standards and best practices. All processes are integrated from raw material acquisition to its reflection in the cost of the finished product.
It has a high degree of configurability, synthesizes information during the production process, optimizes raw material stocks, maintains configuration history. Efficiently tracks orders throughout the production phases – release (generation of product-specific production orders), delivery, packaging, storage, distribution.
Process re-engineering is done without stopping operational activities, any update becomes active in the production flow. The data is automatically loaded onto the new structures without disrupting the activity.
It has fast functionality for specific processes and short delivery times. Provides management and tracking of specific characteristics of manufactured products.
Upon receipt, the materials participating in the production flow, carry the supplier’s batch identification details and can be identified in the semi-finished or finished product. The batching of finished products is managed automatically by the system.
The continuous production flow requires that inventory taking takes place without disrupting production processes and to meet this challenge EMSYS offers the possibility of real-time inventory with mobile equipment of materials and products by various categories of interest down to batch level: management, product groups, subgroups of items, stock accounts, item. The generation of plus and minus inventory documents is automatic.
Analysis tools are implemented for quick management decisions including what if on production, costs according to specific indicators which are managed in nomenclatures with the possibility of adaptation at the time of analysis: coefficients for transforming material values into production cost (concentration, density, volume, weight, yield, etc.), technological losses at production phase level, profitability of raw material collection versus direct purchases from suppliers, dynamic calculation formulas per process, exceptions highlighting, evolution of the effective cost per product, knowledge at any time of customer orders for production estimation (today’s orders for tomorrow’s production), tracking of deviations from established norms, etc.
Cost control and profitability analysis on each production phase/stage, by product, business line, section, product groups/subgroups, partner can be performed at any time.
