Improve your Food Production Scheduling

When you find your production hampered by material shortages, your manufacturing capacity is being reduced through not planning effectively. To increase your production capacity without increasing your factory or staff headcount, UnityF8 is the perfect choice:

  • Production plans are created aligned with scheduling capacity, available resources and deadlines
  • Controls material requirements and suggests buying plans
  • Manages sequences according to resources or product groups/characteristics to reduce downtime

Control your Factory Floor data in real time with accurate data capture

It is the manual elements of how you capture data on your factory floor that lead to delayed and incorrect paperwork from the shift leader. Common issues include that ad-hoc recipe change not recorded and weighed ingredients recorded by hand.

UnityF8 solves these issues with touchscreens and weighing equipment integration on your factory floor. This transforms your traceability too, replacing manual processes which are error-prone and time-consuming:

  • Eliminates mistakes with real-time recipe weighing guidance and monitoring of Factory Floor Data Capture

  • Speeds up response, linking staff via touchscreens, tablets or by direct instruction to machinery (e.g. silos and mixers)

Ensure smarter Inventory Control and Warehouse Management

The wastage of ingredients due to expiration is avoidable, as are labour intensive stock takes and valuations. UnityF8 ensures that your picks and consumptions are properly controlled:

  • Ensures effective stock control for both single and multi-site operations, minimising stock costs and wastage

  • Streamlines inventory control through the use of barcoding, RF scanning and voice-picking options

  • Delivers real-time stock checks and an audit of movements in the warehouse

  • Manages finished goods handling: supports pick by load, order, vehicle and other criteria

  • Manages shelf life requirements and enables the generation of dispatch schedules

Control procurement for shorter lead times and lower stockholding costs

Excessive amounts of capital tied-up in stock is a needless risk to the cashflow of your business. Yet if stock shortages occur frequently, you extend lead times. The answer is smarter procurement by UnityF8:

  • Procurement is controlled in accordance with buying rules, stock levels and minimum order levels

  • Calculates material requirements and suggests buying plans

  • Tracks order progress

  • Receipt scheduling can be tracked with booking in times
