Are you having trouble keeping track of the production, consumption and traceability of rework product at your facility?
The US Code of Federal Regulation, defines food rework as being “clean, unadulterated food that has been removed from processing for reasons other than insanitary conditions or that has been successfully reconditioned by reprocessing and that is suitable for use as food”.
In a manufacturing environment there are potentially many reasons that could warrant the need to rework product and if not managed accurately this could lead to product contamination, a food safety related recall, or—what we see most often—wastage. Food safety standards are always changing and the laws around the consumption of rework product require that processors be able to maintain traceability of rework throughout the manufacturing process.
This is incredibly hard when done manually. Rework challenges hit dried goods, liquid goods, candy manufacturers and bakeries hardest, but it’s a facet of all efficient food production. Handling it well happens to be one of the things ParityFactory is known for in the industry.
With ParityFactory, we make it simple to manage and maintain traceability of rework product throughout the manufacturing process. Our software solution makes this process effortless as we can easily label and scan product into production including product that may need to be reworked. In essence, product slated for re-work just becomes inventory. Not only that, but that inventory maintains its lot history meaning commingling of even dozens of lots is no long a burden, but just one more thing for the system to track.
Being able to scan labels greatly reduces the risk of human error compared to manual methods and makes the process to manage rework product a painless activity. Our built-in digital lot tracing and reporting suites make it easy track the production and consumption of rework inventory. Don’t let rework product work you over! Our system frees up your trusted team members to work on strategic problems instead of tedious tracking best left to software.
