17 Nov Scheduling – Allergen optimisation while improving on-time customer deliveries
To create happier customers and ultimately improve your cash flow, improving on-time customer deliveries is essential. When moving production orders, it is crucial to have visibility to see if the changes will cause a negative impact. Therefore, you can see if these adjustments will impact on the customers required delivery date.
However, as a Food and Beverage manufacturer it’s not just a matter of moving the production order. Other factors need to be considered, for example, allergen and various pack sizes.
Take allergen management as an example. Product recipes and ingredient master data should include allergen details. These should be printed on associated product labelling and packaging materials. While in production creating an optimised production plan is essential. This enables you to sort non-allergen vs allergen based products to reduce change over time and allergen cross-contamination.
