Traceability and Validation for Batching Control Systems

Article-Traceability and Validation for Batching Control Systems

Lot tracking is available with Sterling Systems & Controls' batching control systems.
Lot tracking is available with Sterling Systems & Controls' batching control systems.

Sterling Systems & Controls Inc. announces that lot tracking is available with all of its batching control systems and can be customized. Total traceability and validation is optionally available on all manual or automatic batching control systems.

Lot tracking and total traceability is increasingly required for feed, food, and pet food applications. In some markets it may be a requirement by rule or law. The batching control system can be customized to include as little or as much tracking and traceability as desired. It will depend on the customer ability to fund and implement the tracking system. 

Several inventory strategies are available. FIFO is the most common. Operators will be required to enter a valid lot number before the system will proceed. This data entry can be done by scanning a barcode or manual data entry. The batching control system will include an ingredient lot table. This contains records for each unique lot number of each ingredient. New records are added to this table when the ingredient is received.
