Warehouse Management

V5 ERP Traceability / Stock Control System is straightforward and works on mobile devices with Windows 8/10 or higher. It offers:

  • Handle inventory in multiple locations (Ingredients, WIP, Finished Products)
  • Receive POs & Organize Storage (for incoming Purchase Orders)
  • Conduct Lab Tests (Certificate of Analysis)
  • Set up Sales Orders (or import them)
  • Select and Assign Inventory for Orders
  • Dispatch Sales Orders & Create EDI
  • Print & Redo Labels (for inventory, WIP, pallets)
  • Ask Specific Quality Questions for Different Commodities/Events

This system is perfect for clients wanting to enhance the V5 Production Systems for tracking inventory, WIP, and finished goods.

Formulation & Scale Control

V5 Manufacturing Traceability Software ensures precise measurement and tracking of ingredients, avoiding excessive use or non-compliant batches.

It mandates unique +/- tolerances for each ingredient, not allowing recipe finalization until ingredients meet the green speedometer-style target zone.

Barcode Scanners validate stock, offering live inventory tracking and removing the need for extensive traceability documents.

With numerous customization choices, the software adapts to various uses like batch, campaign, and combination weighing at each workstation.

This ERP Traceability is perfect for weighing and preparing labeled ingredients before mixing and assembling.

Bulk Ingredient Control

V5 Bulk Ingredient Control System precisely tracks high volume, bulk, dry or liquid ingredients in mixed or separate lots for finished batches.

It ensures traceability in automatic bulk ingredient transfers from silos and tanks to mixers, preventing extensive recall situations.

SG Systems offers adaptable communication with PLC Systems. For instance, when a PLC moves an ingredient from a Silo to a hopper for mixing, this transfer is digitally recorded, removing the need for paper records.

This traceability software seamlessly integrates with existing PLCs, either at a high or low level, using different communication methods based on the current or preferred setup.


Manufacturing Execution System (MES)

Statistical Process Control

V5 Statistical Process Control System (SPC) facilitates sample checkweighing of WIP and finished products for quality assurance and precise weight trend monitoring.

This easy-to-use system enables weighing and charting of samples, with an optional connection to the divider/filler for batch standard deviation control. Non-compliant samples trigger warnings and document corrective steps.

Operators and managers receive alerts for non-standard weight trends (either too low or too high) or significant standard deviation, thanks to adjustable weight limits.

Features include average weight, minimum weight, and tailored sampling routines. Statistical sampling effectively minimizes waste, enhances quality control, and reduces product returns.

Product & Pallet Labeling

V5 Product Labeling System ensures accurate and consistent identification of finished products, directly linked to the batches produced and packaging inventory.

It offers multiple activation modes: push button for one label at a time, manual entry for bulk printing, or PLC-triggered for operations like tray stacking or case erecting.

The ERP Traceability operates either independently (using date/time and line number for product identification) or fully integrated with the manufacturing process (printing traceable batch numbers).

SSCC Pallet labels are available for identifying pallet contents and location. Pallet Management traceability software enables editing, merging, deleting, and splitting of pallets.


Manufacturing Execution System (MES)

Laboratory Testing (LIMS)

V5 LIMS System ensures product compliance by mandating quarantine of selected MES batches and products until processing results are verified.

  • Ensures all tests align with product specifications.
  • Managing the approval of materials when multiple samples and approvals are needed.
  • Blocking the use of expired or unapproved materials.
  • Testing in-process samples (WIP Batches), finished goods, or raw materials.
  • Tailoring a list of testing parameters, questions, and responses.

V5 Traceability Software LIMS module supports multi-batch sampling, records the outcomes, and produces a formatted Certificate of Analysis for all testing parameters.
