Unlike discrete manufacturers, process manufacturers generally face some difficulty tackling challenges in their industry. They have to satisfy stringent compliance requirements and complex manufacturing processes in order to roll out products into the marketplace that meet their users’ expectations and gives them a competitive edge in the fast growing nutraceutical niche. With the use of robust process manufacturing solutions, it is possible for these manufacturers to fully maximize on both their profitability as well as productivity.
By deploying these process manufacturing solutions, there are numerous benefits that these manufacturers will be able to unlock for their businesses. These include the following:
Have Better Batch Process Manufacturing
Process manufacturing solutions can capture and manage all the useful formulas and transactions of finished goods through the entire production cycle of the manufacturing up to the shipping process. Companies involved in the foods and beverage industry can get built-in document management features including complete audit trails, versioning control as well as archiving functions for the purpose of successful auditing.
Speed up your new product development
Process manufacturing solutions are able to efficiently handle internal and external requests right through the production cycle starting from the internal requests all through to the external requests. Companies can do all activities that they need through excellent visibility ranging from the sales quotation all the way to the formulation and the production process and even customer communications.
Process manufacturing solutions provide excellent visibility on the physical characteristics allowing you make easy adjustments on these characteristics. You can even input theoretical substitutions in the formula calculations. It is possible for one to expedite review as well as approval of raw materials, packaging, costs and quality considerations in all the business departments. It is also possible for the management to capture all their formula transactions in the system.
Have easy optimization of the system-defined product types
A food and beverage ERP software makes it possible for you to easily define certain product types that you are planning to produce such as soft gels, tablets or even capsules. You can define a great number of variables in the production system including the color thickness, shapes along with numerous other physical characteristics in the product. You can even make definitions of the intermediate products so that you can speed up your rate of product development.
Maintain high quality standards
Process manufacturing solutions enable you to maintain the highest quality levels when it comes to process manufacturing applications. You can put in places systems of checks that ensure you adhere to the highest quality standards during the manufacturing process. For example, you can ensure vendor inspections, carry out checklist on equipment and QC tests while defining the acceptable quality limits. These steps will ensure an overall high level of quality for your products.
Scale up production
Having a robust chemical inventory software is good for your scalability. It will be possible for you to easily automate batch processing jobs and will in turn minimize the manual interventions which can be a huge drag on your production. You can easily allocate inventory on the batch orders and these can be dynamically adjusted in order to realize a specified strength in your finished products.
Manage the health aspects smoothly
Using process manufacturing solutions makes it easier to ensure conformance with various health mandates. The manufacturing company will be able to easily collect accurate data and carry out investigations on situations in order to put in place corrective measures and prevent a recurrence of issues that might compromise quality of product or health of consumers.
Reduce cost of manufacturing
Process ERP solutions will inevitably lower your production costs. It will be easy for you to cost your raw materials based on a number of variables such as projected costs, standard costs and last purchase price. These can be rolled with variables such as labor costs in order to determine optimal prices for finished goods.Read More
