Traceability

TRACEHEADER

Even before regulatory guidelines for the Bioterrorism Act or FSMA were put in place, animal nutrition manufacturers were partnering with WEM to deliver simple, effective and accurate lot tracking solutions.  Over the past several years WEM has expanded its line of Track & Trace solutions to meet the most exacting demands of the industry.  The Traceability modules WEM has available will track individual ingredient lots from the point of entry into the mill to the delivery truck and all the way to the farm bin.

Forward and backward tracing of both individual ingredients and finished feed production lots is easily accomplished and in record time.  Mock recalls completed by WEM clients provide proof that lots can be traced in minutes with the WEM Traceability Module rather than hours or days.

When the unfortunate event such as a recall occurs, a simple click of the mouse will direct the WEM Traceability Module to quarantine individual lots and all finished product containing the recalled lot, automatically.  The WEM Traceability Module can be an integral part of any of the WEM Process Control Modules to yield unequalled documentation, traceability, and feed safety peace of mind.

Standard Features Include:

  • Trace ingredients and production lots
  • Trace forward and backward
  • Bioterrorism Act Compliant, Supports FSMA Regulations
  • Track commingled lots automatically
  • Standard interface to ERP and MES systems
  • Hand Add directs what material to pull from inventory, where to find,  transacts the pull, stages the material
  • Hand Add prompt provides direction of what ingredients, how much to use, and tracks lot codes used for traceability

WEM TT-2™

WEM TT-2™ is the second level of track and trace software for the Feed and Animal Nutrition market.  The expanded functions extend traceability to include automated receiving of bulk and bag materials through the use of bar code readers. Also included is the means to track individual bags throughout a manufacturing facility, an improved hand-add prompt system, plus a platform of mobile solutions.

WEM TT-2™ can be configured to any specific application.  Over the past several decades the proliferation of formulations has driven complexity to new levels.  WEM TT-2™ manages that complexity by assigning unique identifiers to all ingredients and building inventory tracking into the process control; providing real time inventory monitoring and control.

Whether you are operating a medicated feed mill or managing an organic supply chain, WEM has the solution you need.  Verifications can be done for medicated license audits, internal company audits, or basic management verification.
