batch manufacturing

Lot tracking is a key requirement for batch manufactur ers . While most ERP software  solutions  provide basic lot (and serial) tracking, most do not provide the depth needed by  typical  pharmaceutical and chemical manufacturers.  In this blog, we will review several key capabilities you should look for in any batch manufacturing software solution.  

Additional Lot Attributes

Many ERP solutions provide a limited amount of lot attributes, such as number, date, and maybe a description. Batch manufacturers typically require much more than that. Information such as quality status, expiration date, expiration date extensions, and container type are all examples of additional information that might be needed. Ideally, your software will allow for an unlimited amount of user-defined additional lot attributes.  

Traffic Lights

ERP software is all about lists. You view lists of data, then click on  rows and view forms with record specific information. Those lists can get overwhelming. This is where traffic lights for batch manufacturing can come into play. Simple red, yellow, and green indicators can be a great way to identify lots that are ready to ship, undergoing inspection and quarantine. A little color can make finding the information you are looking for and navigating long lists much easier.  

Product Labeling  

Accurate and easy label printing is essential. Make sure you have an easy way to print product labels that pull information for specific items and lot numbers.  

Lot Tracing  

Lot and item tracing  are  a  common regulatory requirement. This should work both ways, from finished good to source materials and from source materials to finished good , with traceability for each manufacturing step along the way.  

Picking Methods  

Traditional manufacturers often use inventory  picking  methods such as LIFO (last in ,  first out) or FIFO (first in ,  first out) but  batch manufacturers often operate with a FEFO (first expired, first out) concept. Make sure that picking methods meet your needs.  

Lot Splitting and Merging    

The nature of chemical and pharmaceutical manufacturing often leads to the need to split or merge lots. The ability to merge different lot numbers into one and the reverse is something to make sure can be performed. Automatic lot splits for purchase receipts and production output, based on quality, for example, can also help make operations more efficient.
