Redmond, WA - Dynamic Systems, Inc., a Redmond, Washington software developer specializing in barcode data collection, has installed mobile computers with Ocean Beauty Seafoods, which has improved traceability and reduces transportation costs.
Increase production speed and traceability
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.
SIMBA allows a production line worker to change content of product labels with a fingertip on the computer touch screen, capturing variable information including weight, size, color, grade, as well as any other information required by the customer (country of origin, dates, etc.), along with a barcode identifier for that tote or carton. The label information is stored in the SIMBA inventory system, which then provides production and inventory reports. The system has features for re-boxing, palletizing and shipping, including production of the bill of lading. This integrated system gives the user complete traceability of the product from receiving to shipping.
Additional Benefits Of SIMBA
New features have been added to the SIMBA software for 2011, including the ability to track inventory (boxes, totes, pallets) to a specific location within the warehouse, cooler or freezer. For those customers who use SIMBA at multiple locations, the Product Tables that hold information for the labels can now be modified at one location and broadcasted to all other locations simultaneously. And the ability to create an Electronic Bill of Lading has been added.
Key results from implementing the SIMBA software include increased production speed; the ability to get same day, accurate production reports; ability to fulfill traceability requirements; accurate inventory; professional looking carton and pallet labels; and expedited van loading.
