Boning Hall Production Planning
Planning what you need to produce to fit with what’s sold
Every company within the meat processing industry is faced with the conundrum of how to plan for kill and bone before understanding what the customer wants.
When it comes to planning, meat processors are reliant on lots of people with tacit knowledge, who do their very best to solve the problems, and islands of efficiencies (different departments, different planning and lots of spreadsheets) to make decisions. As a result, they are very reactive to whatever has happened during the day as they can’t see the full picture.
Within the boning plant, they need to decide what they need to produce and then ensure that what’s produced is what is required – those two things can be quite different. It’s all about:
- 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?
Introducing Plan to Produce
Our boning hall planning software allows you to plan out your boning requirements based on primal and retail pack demand. Whether it’s checking the yield, reviewing progress against the plan, or assessing boning staff performance, our software will provide complete real-time data to analyse operational performance.
To project what you want to produce within the boning hall, within our Plan to Produce software, we can show everything that needs to be produced and match that with what’s being sold. It’s 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.
