Production Reports for Traceability, Forecasting and More

If your business is looking to make use of stock reports and batch reports, the Essentials System can help. At Stevens, we understand the importance of reporting and its role in summarising and informing production processes. This is why we developed the reporting software available in the Essentials System, which can provide a range of reports to the user to support both mass balance and full traceability.

The reports available in the suite include:

  • Ingredient Usage
  • Production Summary
  • Batch Production
  • Recipe Production
  • Operator Production

With these reports, your management team can have better visibility and traceability of ingredients used throughout production. For example, using the Batch End Report, a business is provided information about all batches, including information on the completed batches and the ingredients used in them. With this knowledge they can order stock accordingly. In addition, the report details any suspended or aborted batches, with which the management team can investigate why these actions occurred in order to identify any potential patterns or need to change their processes.

If you would like to see some example reports, please don’t hesitate to ask, or you can request a demo of the Essentials Traceability System.

The Essentials Traceability System is perfect for food producers looking to incorporate traceability and control into their production process. Find out how can be implemented within your business, and speak to one of our experts today on 01254 685200 or email us at info@stevenstraceability.com.
