Dynamic Systems, Inc., Redmond, Wash., released SIMBA Lite 2012, designed to provide food processors the ability to process, label and track their products from “field or dock to customer.”
The 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. Designed for those companies that process in bulk (similar or same products into constant weight cartons), the system allows a production line worker to change content of product labels on the computer or touch screen, capturing product information (weight, size, color, grade) and print a label with a barcode identifier for that tote or carton. The label information is stored in the SIMBA inventory system, which then provides production and inventory reports. The cartons can then be accumulated onto a pallet and tracked with a single pallet identifier.
This integrated system gives the user complete traceability of the product from receiving to shipping. The cartons or pallets can be stored and tracked by location within the warehouse, cooler or freezer.
At the time of shipping, the Van Loading feature tracks each carton or pallet onto a specific van. A Bill of Lading is then automatically produced, eliminating disputes with the customer regarding what was actually shipped.
