Dynamic Systems, Inc., Redmond, Wash., announced SIMBA for shellfish processors.

SIMBA records receiving and production data in real-time, labels and tracks shellfish and provides full traceability from the source to shipping.

Track from the beach. SIMBA uses a tablet to initiate lots at the beach during harvest. This information is sent to the plant and entered into SIMBA, where it then tracks production from receiving to packing in real-time using touchscreen computers. The unique ability of SIMBA to modify weight as the product moves down the production line helps shellfish companies know true weights received and packed.

Updated lot tracking. SIMBA tracks lots by the container, including any mixed or commingled lots.  What this means is full backward and forward traceability for all products.

Advanced logistics. At the time of shipping, the logistics feature tracks each carton or pallet onto a specific truck. A manifest and bill of lading is then produced automatically. This feature not only saves time in the shipping process, but also eliminates disputes with the customer regarding what was shipped.

Positive results. Key results from implementing the SIMBA software include increased production speed, same-day, accurate production reports and fulfilling traceability requirements, accurate inventory and professional-looking carton and pallet labels.
