Use FlexiBake ERP’s lot tracking module for a simple solution to make product recalls and traceability fast and easy.
With the lot tracking module in FlexiBake bakery software, data can be mined for instant recall information. Trace every lot code or batch number from the moment materials are received, baked in production, and when the finished product is sent out the door. Do a recall based on suppliers codes and receiving slips or your own batch numbers and product codes. Instantly check the inventory on hand, work in progress that contains those materials, and products that were produced with each ingredient. Create a report with a list of customers that need to be contacted, without having to search through days of data. With stricter government regulations lot codes and batch tracking are required to setup HACCP plans and comply with regulations like the FSMA as well as BRC and ISO certifications./p>
Peel and stick tags to ensure that correct materials are used in a FIFO order.
Instantly print lot coded tags to label each box of raw materials. Use these tags to ensure that pickers and production staff have access to helpful information so that the correct materials are used in a FIFO order. Bakeries that require product tracking must record all supplier lot numbers. For those who would rather use a date stamp for their tags, FlexiBake can produce Julian Date codes for materials received.
Record the lot code or batch numbers that are consumed during each step of production.
A detailed work order allows bakers to record the lot code or batch numbers that are consumed during each step of production. Add additional details and instructions for the baking process or create templates for staff to fill out before handing in. As completed work orders are received, check for variances against FlexiBake's expectations and close production to confirm true lot tracking.
Use an automatic first in, first out procedure, with the option to adjust.
FlexiBake makes lot tracking, traceability, and product recalls simple with the option to auto allocate ingredients and products. During production and shipping, use an automatic first in, first out procedure, with the option to adjust. Compare expected versus actual lot numbers used in production. Discover where some shifts or teams may require training, point out inventory variances or other hidden challenges.
The recall function creates a list of raw materials and products still on hand containing recalled ingredients
In the case of a recall, it is important to inform customers right away. It is just as important to take material off the shelves to avoid further contamination. FlexiBake’s recall function easily creates a list of raw materials and products that are still on hand, it’s clear what needs to be removed from inventory. Use the recall module with inventory adjustment slips for complete lot code or batch tracking.
