BBD registration? Productions dates and best before dates can be registered at article level in CORAX. In addition, CORAX also offers the possibility to record total shelf life at item level and the minimum required shelf life of the item upon delivery. Based on the production date of an item, CORAX calculates the best before date. It can be registered that a customer will never receive an item with an expiration date older than the previous delivery with a customer-level tool in CORAX.
What Is BBD Registration?
Best before dates can be the bane of your existence in any production business. However, if they are managed well, it does not have to feel like they can turn everything upside down. Mismanagement in such a critical place is going to leave you ending up with quite a bit of spoiled stock that was well within your control.
With BBD registration, the date supplies expire is recorded in the WMS system at play. While this is not going to help you to mitigate items that expire because there was not enough demand, you can surely avoid a situation where expiry could have been prevented if an older set of inventory was set an outbound course before a newer one.
When you have BBD registration in the mix, the WMS retains all this information for you, so you can make appropriate decisions. To take it even further, with an efficient system in place, you do not need to be thinking about this yourself.
How Does the CORAX System Handle BBD Registration?
The first way is cataloging production and spoilage dates upon item delivery. Note that all this is handled at the article level in the system, so you are not going to have a situation where things are registered in such large batches that there is a combination of dates not accounted for.
With this WMS, you can manage the total shelf life of each item, as it is all recorded for a smoother process. Additionally, minimum shelf life is also a recorded parameter. Using these figures, the system goes ahead and calculates the most optimal best before date.
The point of all of this, apart from creating a warehouse flow that is conducive to efficiency, is to ensure that customers never have to deal with getting an expired item from your inventory. The customer-level tool in CORAX achieves this by never allowing items with an expiration date predating the previous delivery to leave the warehouse for your clients.
Does the System Ensure That Older Items Leave First?
As far as managing expired items is concerned, CORAX handles it very efficiently. As you may have gathered, registering the relevant dates for each item goes beyond having something else that you can view in a report.
Ensuring that customers never get an expired item means a few considerations must be made. One of these is a first entry first-out (FEFO) system. Therefore, you never have to worry about if the newest set of deliveries are the ones being shipped out first. In such a situation, you would have an unbelievable level of spoilage on your hands, which would all but tank your profitability.
CORAX is a complete WMS, which means it must make all the necessary considerations, so you can have an almost hands-free experience while the system does the job that it was given to do. As far as exploration is concerned, it is a non-issue if you invest in this well-designed system.
