Tracking Produce

Dynamic Systems, Inc. announced the release of SIMBA Lite 2012, which is designed to provide food processors the ability to process, label and track their products from field or dock to customer. The SIMBA (Specialized Inventory Management with Barcode Accuracy) system solves the problem of how to produce and track complete product labeling for fresh food on the fly. A production line worker can change content of product labels with a fingertip on the computer or touch screen, capturing product information (weight, size, color, grade) and printing a label with a bar code identifier for that tote or carton. The label information is stored in the SIMBA inventory system, which provides production and inventory reports. The cartons may be accumulated onto a pallet and tracked with a single pallet identifier. The cartons or pallets can be stored and tracked by location within the warehouse, cooler or freezer. At the time of shipping, the van loading feature tracks each carton or pallet onto a specific van. A bill of lading is produced automatically.
