Boning Hall Planning Software
Whenever an animal has been killed at the abattoir, swift decisions must made about what should be done with the carcass or hanging sides.
- Will your meat processing business achieve better margins by selling the primals?
- Or would it be better to use primals within your retail pack operation?
Planning what to produce and fit with what’s sold
Every meat processing company is faced with having to plan for kill and boning before having a complete picture of what will sell. Whether it’s beef, pork or lamb, making the best meat boning hall planning decisions means the difference between profit and loss.
When it comes to boning hall planning, many meat processors rely on paper processing and tacit knowledge. Decision making is reliant on “islands of efficiencies, such as different departments, plans and multiple spreadsheets.
The result? Planning is very reactive, according to whatever has happened during the day.
- What am I going to sell and what do I want to sell?
- What’s going for a better price this week?
- Which products to produce this week, that can be sold for a better return?
But within the boning plant, deciding what needs to be produced and ensuring that these product match up to whatever’s required, can be quite a different story.
Introducing Plan to Produce
Using SI’s Plan to Produce software, meat processors can plan out boning hall requirements based on primal and retail pack demand. Then, review progress against the progress against the plan, assess operational and operator performance – all in real-time.
Plan to Produce is effectively a visualisation of cause and effect. It will show when there’s not enough product coming through and, if it doesn’t match, boning plan can then be changed to match what you are selling.
