Organization and overview of production recipes

Organization and overview of production recipes

Automatically create production recipes that are linked to all development recipe data. All important recipe and production data can be clearly recorded and supplemented with the help of our software. Add properties to a recipe or partial recipe, maintain specification data and generate declaration information.

All recipe parts such as mixing instructions, ingredients and process steps can be created and recorded in the recipe. Partial recipes/semi-finished goods can be used in any nesting depth.

In addition, you can store tolerance specifications for recipes, specify stability surcharges and have the distribution of filling ingredients calculated.

The system enables direct weighing-in from the recipe without a production order. Store user instructions during weighing-in, per ingredient and process step or specify the use of a scale. Benefit from the program's connection to PLCs, scales and weighing terminals, RS232, Ethernet and other devices and interfaces.

Mixture optimization

Mixture optimization

A tool for mixture optimization helps to adjust the quantity ratios in case of property variations of raw material batches on a batch-by-batch basis.

Create blend ingredients in the system and assign them manually or automatically. The system helps you to optimize blending based on a configurable set of rules for natural product batches with fluctuating properties to be processed.

This ensures a consistent target quality of the end product. The variance of the raw material properties is also taken into account.

Use the "Raw material exchange" function to exchange raw materials at recipes and get an overview of all available substitute raw materials.

Enter the exact mixing ratio between the alternative raw materials so that the quantities (volume, weight, etc.) can be calculated automatically and the raw materials added to the recipe.

The system supports you in using suitable alternative raw materials and making recipe adjustments. Use alternative raw materials in recipes and production orders to replace ingredients.

Recipe versioning

Recipe versioning

Use the versioning function to maintain an overview and traceability of all old and new versions of your production recipe. All versions of a recipe are linked to each other so that you can keep an eye on the version and change history. The versioning function is useful, for example, when new ingredients need to be added to a recipe or the composition needs to be changed.

In this way, the system enables you to track at any time which changes the product or recipe has undergone and which version was created from which development variant.

All important information can be documented and tracked with the program. In the event of a complaint, you have all the facts you need at your fingertips to quickly and efficiently determine the cause of the recall.

The system is designed in such a way that you can graphically display recipe trees nested to any depth.

With the help of this hierarchical display, you can calculate cumulative proportions across all recipe levels and determine which premixes were used in which composition.

Release processes for production recipes often run in external systems. With our program, you can flexibly decide whether the finished production recipe should be transferred from diaLIMS to another program (e.g. ERP) or whether production support should be provided via our company software.

In this case, production orders are generated via LIMS and linked to the recipe. The complete production process can be supported by our software.

Combine recipe management with diaLIMS batch management modules and production order planning to automatically transfer data and instructions and simplify processes. Generate sampling plans for the generated production orders depending on batch numbers and batch quantities for optimized quality assurance. Use the output of detailed instructions for production as well as the automatic quantity calculation for production approaches.
