Improve productivity and reduce giveaway with MARCO Trac-IT
The baked goods industry produces a wide range of goods daily to meet the growing demand of the consumer. The production of baked goods is complex; with increasing product ranges, producers of baked goods must ensure their facilities can cope with the increased demand. The recipe formulation in the baked goods industry is traditionally a manual process, with complex recipes and varying raw ingredients. With this in mind, MARCO has developed its suite of Trac-IT software to meet the needs and demands faced in the baked goods industry.
MARCO Trac-IT Recipe Formulation Module (RFM) has been designed to deskill the manual processes in the ingredient mixing process, increase stock control and improve your overall management. Operators producing baked goods are guided through the recipe formulation process confirming each ingredient is added correctly into the batch. RFM has the added feature of automatic batch adjustment. In the situation that too much of one ingredient is added the batch can be salvaged with the automatic batch adjustment feature. The software will automatically calculate how much additional ingredient must be added to complete the batch. RFM works in conjunction with MARCO’s DataMaster workstations, providing live data reporting for facility managers.
Key Features of MARCO Recipe Formulation Module for baked goods industry include:
Benefits of MARCO systems in the Baked Goods Industry:
MARCO’s Recipe Formulation Module can be implemented into your facility as a standalone module to produce immediate benefits. The system will ensure a rapid return on investment with a proven track recorded of producing results. However, the module will perform best in conjunction with other MARCO Trac-IT modules to produce even greater results.
MARCO’s Trac-IT Waste Management Module (WMM) provides accurate and reliable data for quantities and origins of waste within your baked goods production facility. Operating from a DataMaster workstation, the module provides immediate notifications if waste is exceeding limits on the production floor. To further increase efficiencies our Goods Received Module (GRM) provides full goods intake control with all raw materials coming into the facility tracked and recorded against each pre-approved supplier. Using label printing and barcode scanners all raw material is assigned a storage location, with all handling of the raw materials being tracked for full traceability and complete management oversight.
MARCO’s Trac-IT Data Exchange Module (DEM) works as a link between the office and the production floor. The module takes work orders and provides the data to the production floor, which enables immediate management decision-making to manage work orders. Our Quality Control Module (QCM) enables operators to manage all quality control checks from one system, utilising a ruggedized tablet to conduct checks all around your baked goods facility. All QCM data is stored on the MARCO server, enabling easy access at any time.
MARCO modules used in your baked goods facility can be combined together to form our full factory efficiency system. Our Manufacturing Execution System (MES) can be fully integrated to existing business systems to dramatically increase your overall management insight.
