Solution Details

Recipe Management

  • Employ a complete Bill of Materials (BOM)
  • Manage production by process or recipe for a more granular record of production
  • Easily map recipes and fully integrated them with your financial BOM
  • Define process steps and collect unlimited quality results directly on your production log
  • Utilize flexible units of measure to simply conversion between barrels, liters, kegs, cans, case etc.
  • Calculate and analyze variances in your production process – easily identify loss and batch yield
  • Identify labor, equipment and raw material fluctuations in finished good production

Inventory Management

  • Track inventory transactions in real time to view present, past and future levels
  • Set recommended cycle counts
  • Maintain minimum safety stock levels
  • Take advantage of audit-able physical inventory counts
  • Track multiple inputs to multiple outputs
  • Create multiple finished goods from one production log
  • Simplify tank blending while maintaining full lot traceability
  • Utilize flexible units of measure for more customized screens
  • Employ the Where Used Report to identify all batches associated with a component or raw material item
  • Manage partial fulfillment of orders

Actual vs. Planned Production Tracking

  • Track actual vs. planned raw-material usage by brew or recipe
  • Identify labor, equipment and raw material fluctuations in finished good production
  • Gain insight into which brews require more or less materials, (which recipes veer from the master record)

Multi-Process Production

  • Define your processes that are interconnected by a master recipe for each brand
  • Use easy tank blending without losing any yield
  • Determine process steps and collect unlimited quality results
  • Manage each process from wort to packaging
  • Eliminate spreadsheets and whiteboards with an interactive, real time mapping of processes
  • Add any unique or additional steps such as dry hopping, fruiting, spicing, or barrel aging

Operator Instructions

  • View operator instructions, machine settings and production times within each master recipe
  • Centralize this data to ensure consistent communication to the brewers
  • Migrate from separate excel or word files holding information to one central data location
  • Create brew logs, which the brewer will then be working from the most up to date version of

Integrated Data

  • Maintain all production logs in a centralized system
  • View all transactions as they are posted directly to the inventory system
  • Record production operations and take advantage of your inventory and financial systems that are automatically updated
  • Associate non-inventory items such as labor and overhead by batch and brew, for a true cost of goods sold
  • Streamline the recording of activities in the brewery for more accurate, timely and relevant data
  • Eliminate redundant data sources and double entry
  • Gain a clearer vision of production operations with more complete records

Batch Yield

  • Review results of processes over time
  • Measure changes in yield results over time to uncover potential for expanded profits
  • Setup customized alerts to notify you when certain production variances happen
  • Gain insight into your volume changes of brite beer consumed to fill a series of kegs over time and know when you need to refurbish or replace components of the filling line
  • View changes in the output of Wort in the brewing process, which could signal the need to investigate the brewing process, highlighting bottlenecks or other problem areas

BATCH & LOT TRACEABILITY

  • Track any inventory items with manual or receipt generated lot numbers
  • Use assigned batch numbers for production runs, which will track the consumption of lot tracked items through your production process; including tank blending and packaging for true grain to glass visibility
  • Utilize the Lot Trace Report to easily identify where a raw material lot was consumed and fast track any recall process with this report
  • Employ the Where Used Report to identify all batches associated with a component or raw material item
  • Evaluate the reach certain ingredients have throughout your product mix

Centralized Quality Control Tests

  • Associate quality tests and observations with the master recipes, and individual brews as necessary
  • Specify target parameters for each quality test
  • Set alerts for results recorded out of spec
  • Define the complete brewing process in your unique brewery more precisely
  • Connect QC data to dashboard for analysis of brew performance and trends
  • Document quality standards in a centralized location for the brewery and apply consistently across all brewing processes, instead of storing these in Excel spreadsheets

Reporting

  • Employ the Brewers Report of Operations
  • Categorize production flow and map fields directly to the TTB form
  • Identify proper quantities attributed to loss, waste, QC testing, etc
