    • Release control management
    • Multi-dimensional sales forecasting to aid in predicting inventory requirements
    • Preventative/predictive maintenance tracking that will keep you informed to avoid surprises and setbacks in production

    Food and Beverage

    Food safety regulations, ingredient traceability, shelf-life tracking, recipe management and seasonal demand forecasting are just a few of the ever-changing challenges that Food & Beverage manufacturers face on a daily basis. Whether you specialize in produce, beverages, frozen entrees or canned goods, with the industry-specific ERP and MES solution from DELMIAWORKS, F&B manufacturers gain the tools necessary to succeed and flourish. Food and beverage-specific features include:

    • Two-way lot traceability with robust labeling options to avoid costly mislabeling errors and regulatory fines

    • Multiple UOMs supported (volume, weight, pounds, cases, etc.)
    • Individual and multi-plant seasonal demand forecasting
    • Accurate and transparent inventory control by user, including batch, lot and serial number traceability to optimize turns and track expiration or best-by dates
    • Private labeling functionality
    • Robust scheduling engine to handle volume scheduling, advanced sequencing, wait times and other complex scheduling requirements


    From recyclable clamshells to top down bottles and pharmaceutical foil blister packs to flexible pouches, the packaging industry design solutions that provide security, protection, convenience and marketing to the world. But with these innovations comes a unique set of manufacturing necessities, such as the need for detailed lot traceability, accurate part labeling and production flexibility. That is why your packaging company deserve a packaging-specific manufacturing ERP & MES software that fits their needs and can effortlessly transition to mobile as needed. Packaging-specific features include:

    • Document control view internal and external documents, as well as email, from secure document control libraries with complete audit trails and history
    • Flexible units of measure Whether you are storing in eaches, producing in grams or purchasing in lots, constantly changing units of measure can get complicated
    • Lot and serial traceability for more accurate and compliant inventory control is easily achievable with complete lot number tacking and traceability
    • Regrind usage & consumption features Add and consume raw materials that are not a part of the master inventory, including functionality to track scrap rates, regrind
      usage, parison/flash and runner/sprue for material consumption

    Factories across all industries face similar weaknesses when it comes to total visibility on the end-to-end process. Yet, each industry has specific needs that are unique to them. DELMIAWORKS is comprised of multiple specialized features that allow you to capture those unique pain points within your manufacturing process.
