Fish Retail Pack
From batch issue to retail pack – the SI way
When a batch of fish is issued for retail pack processing, it will be booked against a production run within our software, according to the products that have been planned. Each batch is assigned a unique code. This batch code data captures all the relevant vessel detail, the date for each catch, quota data and other useful information.
The unique batch code data accompanies the product throughout the processing line, together with the individual species barcode information. It informs label generation, whenever the product is packed and dispatched or put into cold storage.
Monitoring yield and tracking the batch
Our Outer Case Markers (OCMs) manage more than just labels and booking to the production run. They also manage the calculations, based on the yield, and ensure that the batches are correctly changed. And whether you need to track by delivery or relatively small batches, the OCMs monitor every batch, preventing automatic overbooking and booking against the wrong production run.
Note: In the case of a better yield being achieved, a manual override can be made and recorded.
Controlling the WIP
By using our software, fish processors can book trays of mixed fillets as work in progress (WIP) and capture the actual weights of the fillets (rather than the supplier weight).
One of the most important features of our fish processing software is that it only allows the product to be booked to output if it is correct.Contact us
