Solution to provide multi-level batch traceability
Process manufacturing ERP systems need to handle combining raw materials and ingredients, as well as manufactured products. The best process manufacturing ERP must be able to track both the raw materials and products with rules to note ingredients can’t be reused like components in discrete manufacturing.
Process Manufacturing is a form of production which is continuous and involves formulas and recipes instead of discrete materials. The industries that fit the bill perfectly include Chemical, Food and Beverages (F&B) and Pharmaceutical. A striking difference between Process and Discrete Manufacturing lies with the end product, which is measurable in the former and countable in the latter.
Process Manufacturing Companies have their hands full when it comes to facing complexities. Such complexities demand dedicated and prudently designed ERP Solutions. Process Manufacturing ERP is all about ingredients, their weights and their volumes. Tracking the minute variations of these attributes during the manufacturing process and beyond requires utmost precision and should be an indispensable characteristic of a Process-Oriented ERP. The adaptability to various measurement units and conversions that may give outputs in decimals is another distinction which a Process-Oriented ERP System must hold. YGL Beyond ERP for Process Manufacturing accommodates all these functionalities seamlessly and has a lot more to offer than a regular ERP System.
The extent of traceability required corresponds to the nature or the working model of an industry. Taking an example of the Food Industry, it is essential to trace the complete trajectory of the product from the factory to the vendor’s lot and eventually to the field where it was cultivated YGL Beyond ERP for Process Manufacturing remains consistent in handling such variants of traceability.
Process Manufacturing ERP software primarily depends upon the velocity to churn out large volumes of production. This calls for a judicious utilization of available equipment, apart from the regular material management. Another attribute which makes Process Manufacturing intricate is that it’s not singular in nature and the primary processes branch out into numerous secondary processes, while forming intermediate products along the way which are not part of the inventory. YGL Beyond ERP for Process Manufacturing has the flexibility to cater to such an erratic form of production that carries frequent changes in the overall chemistry of the ingredients involved.
Quality Assurance and Quality Management are the vital cogs in the wheel of Process Manufacturing ERP. A considerable amount of planning has to be vested in the process to comply with the accepted quality standards. An ERP System managing the data pertaining to audit and generating reports on an enterprise’s non-conformity to the quality standards is something which is crucial for the smooth functioning of an enterprise. YGL Beyond ERP for Process Manufacturing features a potent Quality Reporting Module to let an enterprise meet all the quality norms.
Benefits of YGL Beyond ERP
It provides complete visibility and management of inventory. Serial numbers can be allocated to purchased and manufactured goods, to provide full traceability. Tasks such as the exchange of invoices, shipping notes and delivery confirmation (EDI) between everyone from the originator to the recipients can be automated. Integration with other carrier systems and suggestions for different picks, packs, and put away strategies is also possible with WinMan ERP. All warehouse information can follow a traditional paper trail or users can access real-time data on a mobile device.
Improve Quality and Efficiency
The quality control functions can help manufacturers meet compliance regulations, monitor performance of suppliers and track QC inspections. YGL Beyond ERP helps create an efficient operational environment by allowing users to automate or introduce specific workflows to help minimise input errors and save time.
Multi-Level Batch Traceability and Compliance
YGL Beyond ERP provides lot traceability from source through to manufacturing to final delivery. Master batch records can be created and saved within the system which will eliminate the need for paper copies.
Purchasing and Minimising Costs
The system can facilitate Kanban purchasing. Milestones can be set so raw ingredients and supplies can be ordered just in time prior to production. Cost of production and waste can be accurately tracked. Any leakages or issues within the manufacturing and operational processes can be identified and rectified.
Repetitive processes and manual tasks such as creating EDIs, invoices, packing notes and optimising delivery routes, can all be automated and streamlined by YGL Beyond ERP. This will decrease human errors, increase efficiency and can eliminate the need for printing but, most importantly it saves time. Business decisions can also be made quickly based on the data pulled from the YGL Beyond ERP system to create informative dashboards and reports.
