ProcessForce; Weight-based Recipes

Updated on

ProcessForce, a process-oriented recipe-based ERP application provides you the flexibility to enter the data in the manner in which makes sense to you and your business.

In industries such as food and beverage, chemicals and life sciences, the raw materials and ingredients being consumed within the recipe or formulation may be based on a percentage of weight values rather than traditional quantity values.

These industries have a requirement, not just to be able to enter a percentage weight into a formulation, but for that formulation to calculate the total ingredient quantities, the total overall percentage and total weight values.

What is ProcessForce?

At its core, ProcessForce is a powerful process-oriented ERP application designed to meet the unique needs of industries such as food and beverage, chemicals, and life sciences. Unlike traditional ERP systems, which primarily focus on discrete manufacturing and standard bill of material formats, ProcessForce takes a more holistic approach by offering extensive capabilities for recipe-based manufacturing.

With ProcessForce, you gain unparalleled flexibility in managing your business processes. The application allows you to enter and handle data in a manner that aligns with your specific requirements and workflows. This level of adaptability is particularly advantageous for industries where raw material quantities are measured based on percentage weight values rather than traditional quantities. ProcessForce not only allows you to enter percentage weight values but also calculates total ingredient quantities, overall percentages, and total weight values, ensuring accurate formulations.

One of the key strengths of ProcessForce lies in its ability to provide complete traceability throughout your manufacturing processes. Whether you need to track the origin of raw materials, monitor batch production, or ensure compliance with industry regulations, ProcessForce empowers you with detailed visibility into your operations. By maintaining rigorous control and capturing real-time data, you can enhance quality assurance, improve regulatory compliance, and gain invaluable insights for process optimization.

Furthermore, ProcessForce seamlessly integrates with SAP Business One, a comprehensive business management solution, to offer a comprehensive end-to-end ERP system. This integration ensures smooth data flow across different functions of your organization, enabling you to streamline processes, eliminate data silos, and enhance collaboration among teams. With SAP Business One and ProcessForce working in tandem, you can achieve operational excellence, drive growth, and stay one step ahead of the competition.

Where standard ERP solutions tend not to allow the input of percentage values when entering quantities in recipes, ProcessForce can also be configured to provide a warning to the user if the total weight is greater than 100% or more than 100% of the recipe size.

Would you like to define and enter your product recipes into your ERP system using % weight values? Does your current ERP solution force you to enter the recipe as basic quantity values, because the system uses a traditional engineering based bill of material format? If so, call us on 01244 676 900 and or complete the form below to discover how SAP Business One along with ProcessForce can solve your business issues.
