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.
