From product design, to production planning, production recording, costing, and equipment management, to batch manufacturing, To-Increase Food Process Manufacturing provides end-to-end capabilities for the efficient, quality-controlled production of food items.
When you deploy Food Process Manufacturing, you can extend your Dynamics Business Central ERP system with many capabilities—such as nutritional analysis, batch scheduling, the creation of co- and by-products, and forward and backward lot tracing—that are usually not available in standard ERP, which tends to be designed more for discrete manufacturing and assembly. Batch planning in Food Process Manufacturing helps you plan for fewer, more productive runs and lower overhead.
The solution’s intuitive planning tools assist you in creating the best alignment of demand, materials and supplies, and production. By means of visual sequencing, you can set up batches for production on certain equipment, schedule packaging lines, and add other tasks to build a complete, reliable schedule.
Food Process Manufacturing supports your quality goals by enabling you to track lots forward and backward through the production process. Integration with Food Quality Control supports the compliance of your manufacturing with applicable governmental, industry, and corporate standards and regulations.
