ERP functionalities for the management of hams
The management functions for the preparation of hams involve very specific processes that must be met in order to obtain a final product of good quality. All process begins with the reception of hams, which in this case comes from the cutting rooms. Next, a series of processes are needed that will treat the pieces to achieve optimal drying according to the quality we want for our cured ham.
The whole process can be controlled with RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) technology piece by piece, we must not forget that traceability in this type of product is very important. Controlling the stock, the quantity of product in the chamber, the counting of pieces and the shrinkage that occurs during the drying process is contemplated in our software IOCárnicas.
RECEPTION OF RAW PIECES FOR THE PREPARATION OF HAMS
The process of receiving the raw pieces for the preparation of hams begins with the classification. This can be distinguished by type of piece and the weight range of the piece. Our hams management software allows you to automate this process and record the information directly in the management system.
It is worth noting the importance of quality control of the product received. IOCárnicas incorporates the control for the homologation of the meat suppliers that supply us the raw materials. This control makes the management more agile and reliable and determines the return or not to the supplier. All this process of return is contemplated in our ERP.
The reception and the classification of the pieces for the elaboration of hams, must be done in the dock itself. To this end, special temperature and treatment conditions have to be met, as specified by the IFS quality regulations or the BRC regulations for product handling, IOCarnicas envisages these regulations.
HAM PRODUCTION PROCESS
The production processes for the most outstanding hams management are: classification, salting, washing and drying.
The process begins with the classification of the hams received, assigning a product category and then proceed in plant to the salting, salting, to leave the hams prepared for the next phase of production.
The washing-brushing phase allows to eliminate the salt residues from the surface and achieve the homogeneous distribution of the salt inside at rest.
The final process of the production of hams begins with the management of the drying and the maturation, that consists of obtaining a gradual dehydration of the piece until obtaining the wished point, according to the quality that we want to obtain.
All the phases and processes of hams production until arriving to the final piece, are contemplated in our software of meat management for Hams.

HAM DELIVERY MANAGEMENT
The shipping management of our IOCárnicas software contemplates the shipment as a set of treatments. The ham identification system proposed by the regulations is related to the quality of hams.
The process of hams delivery and specifically Iberian hams need specific controls that our hams management software incorporates. The hams should be identified with a type of brand to determine the quality of the ham according to the color of the identification and thus avoid any problems to customers. A return of these products can become very expensive and cause its deterioration.
There is also a problem of labeling for the identification in some cases of hams of superior quality. The labeling in these cases has to be done one by one and include information such as: origin, drying time and other values necessary for the final consumer. Our ERP software for hams, is responsible for covering these needs.
