The management functions for the production of hams entail very specific processes that must be followed to obtain a final product of good quality. The whole process begins with the reception of the hams, which in this case comes from the cutting rooms. Next, a series of processes are necessary to treat the pieces to achieve optimal drying according to the quality we want for our cured ham.
The entire process can be controlled with RFID technology (Radio Frequency Identification), piece by piece, we must not forget that traceability in this type of product is very important. Controlling the stock, the amount of product in the chamber, the count of pieces and the loss that occurs during the drying process, all of that is contemplated in our ERP IOCárnicas software.
The process of receiving the raw pieces for the production of hams begins with the classification. This can be distinguished by part type and part weight range. Our management software for hams 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. IOCárnicasincorporates the control for the approval of meat suppliers that supply us with raw materials. This control makes the management more agile and reliable and determines the return or not to the supplier. This entire return process is contemplated in our ERP.
The reception and classification of the pieces for the elaboration of hams must be carried out on the dock itself. For this, special temperature and treatment conditions must be met. These conditions are specified by the IFS quality regulations, or the BRC regulations for handling the product. IOCárnicas contemplates these regulations.
The most outstanding production processes for the management of hams are: classification, salting, washing and drying.
The process begins with the classification of the hams received. First a product category is assigned. Next, the plant proceeds to the salting phase, salting, to leave the hams ready for the next production phase.
The washing-brushing phase removes salt residues from the surface. It also achieves the homogeneous distribution of salt inside at rest.
The final process of ham production begins with the management of drying and maturation. This consists of obtaining a gradual dehydration of the piece, until the desired point is achieved, depending on the quality we want to obtain.
All the phases and processes of ham production, up to the final piece, are contemplated in our meat management software for Hams.
In our latest version, a waste management and control system has been implemented.
In the commercial management of the food sector, which includes the meat sector, and more specifically the production of hams, the treatment of discounts, promotions, offers, rappels and other commercial needs is common. Our ERP for ham management includes all these needs with maximum flexibility.
IOCárnicas has developed a specific module for commercial management. It deals with all these needs with the possibility of parameterizing them by the user. Some of the features in the ham solution are:
The shipment management of our IOCárnicassoftware considers the shipment as a set of treatments. The ham identification system proposed by the regulations is related to the quality of the hams.
The process of sending hams (and specifically Iberian hams) requires specific controls. Some controls that our management software for hams incorporates. The hams must 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 for customers. A return of these products can be very expensive and cause deterioration of the same.
There is also a problem of labeling for the identification in some cases of superior quality hams. Labeling in these cases has to be done one by one and include information. For example: origin, drying time, and other values necessary for the final consumer. Our ERP software for hams is responsible for covering these needs.
Waste management for companies in the meat industry deals with the fees to be included in the billing of products according to the waste law for the product.
Likewise, the green point management is incorporated. The cost of the green point responds to the costs of managing the packaging waste.
As improvements in the latest version of IOCárnicas for ham production management, there are the following features:
Our ham management ERP software incorporates a series of professional modules that perfectly cover the specific needs of meat management. All of them make our IOCárnicas software one of the most complete management programs.
