Bakery Weighing & Traceability

Gain Control with Versatile Production Software

With the production software, recipes (Bill of Materials) are scheduled for the weighing terminal. Using lot numbers, the Essentials system ensures that all ingredients within the recipe are then weighed to set tolerances (+/-) which guarantees accuracy and consistency while improving cost management. With First-In-First-Out and First-Expired-First-Out configurations, you can ensure that your operators use the right stock lots, and with real-time stock reduction as you weigh materials, clarity is maintained at every stage.

Product safety can be assured with the ability to assign allergens against commodities, which displays an alert to the operator when they weigh an ingredient that contains an allergen. This ensures that any precautions that need to be taken are brought to attention for proper handling of the product. Further to this, Quality & Assurance questions can be asked at the terminal across various stages within the Stevens System. There are several ways to do this, like adding a question as a step action within the recipe formula to ensure operators follow the step to proceed.

After materials are weighed, information is captured back to the Stevens Traceability System and made available for paperless reporting. With the addition of the Stock Essentials module, stock can be validated, ensuring expired stock is not consumed.
