- Aug. 16, 2013 - REDMOND, Wash. -- Increase production speed and traceability
The SIMBA (http://www.a-
simba/) (Specialized Inventory Management with Barcode Accuracy) system solves the problem of how to produce and track complete product labeling for fresh food on the fly.
SIMBA Enterprise (http://www.a-barcode.com/enterprise-food-traceability/
) is designed for enterprise level food processors who handle many complex products and need fast and accurate information for production and sales. SIMBA tracks, labels and ships an unlimited number of products with specific species and characteristics. The system automatically generates bills of lading and verifies shipments, and eliminating charge-backs. SIMBA Enterprise allows you to track and organize products by pallet, lot and case including repeated commingling and re-boxing. Inventory can be tracked by location, tracks moves from warehouse to warehouse, re-pack and commingle products at any point in the process without losing lot traceability.
The system runs on a mobile barcode data collection terminal, and allows the worker to produce product labels with all pertinent information (including a GS-1 code), capturing product information (weight, size, color, grade) for that carton or bag. The label (http://www.a-barcode.com/labels
) information is then stored in the SIMBA Inventory (http://www.a-barcode.com/software/inventory-management/
) database which provides data for inventory management, traceability and shipping. The cartons may be accumulated onto a pallet and tracked with a single pallet identifier. Van Loading
At the time of shipping, the Van Loading feature of SIMBA Enterprise tracks each carton or pallet onto a specific van. A Bill of Lading is then produced automatically.
This feature not only saves time in the shipping process, it eliminates disputes with the customer regarding what was actually shipped.Results
Key results from implementing the SIMBA software include increased production speed; the ability to get real-time, accurate production reports; ability to fulfill traceability requirements;
accurate inventory (http://www.a-
management); professional looking carton and pallet labels; and expedited van loading.
