Bakery and Cake Recipe Control
As your business grows and demand for products increases, so does the drive for efficiency.
It’s hard to maintain consistency when your bakery operations rely on manual processes, especially when product lines grow and customer demands intensify. But by moving away from manual procedures and embracing digital methods to optimise production processes, operational efficiencies, product quality and overall consistency will be dramatically improved. SI’s modular planing food erp, MES and recipe control software is proven to transform bakery and cake manufacturing processes.
For bakeries and cake manufacturers, these are some of the many challenges that SI’s know-how and recipe management software is resolving:
- Regular problems with incorrect quantities, weights and raw materials being issued to the recipe mix.
- Too much is lost through giveaway, wastage, quality issues and product recalls.
- Poor management of raw material stock and labour costs detrimentally impact profit margins.
- Inability to keep track of raw material batch consumption and stock.
- Inefficient stock control and rotation.
- Manual scheduling becomes too complicated to manage, as product ranges and formats expand.
- Inability to control multiple processes and manufacturing stages, especially recipe formulation and mixing, WIP, racking cooking, cooling and finishing.
Full ingredient traceability and control
SI’s recipe control software tracks and manages every detail of the recipe batch, including:
- Any instructions for finishing touches
- Partially completed mixes.
- Tolerances for each item to be issued to the recipe mix
- Controls temperatures where an over-tolerance will result in burnt products and poor yield.
By using our cost modelling software, bakeries and cake manufacturers can map out costs for all ingredients and product relationships. And whenever prices change, SI’s cost modelling software automatically adjusts all relationships as well as the costs.
Waiting for specific raw material that’s out of stock for your recipe?
With SI’s recipe control software, part completed mixes can be booked back into stock and reintroduced to finish the recipe mix, once outstanding raw material is available.
