  • Enables easy formula construction and maintenance through point’ n’ click selection of ingredients, suggested substitution when needed, and assignment of proportions.
  • Facilitates rapid creation of a new formula from existing formula and making modifications as needed; resulting formula can be temporary, permanent, or used to develop sales quotes.
  • Eliminates the need for creating additional formulas when existing, multiple formulas can suffice. For example, nest the formula to make peas with the formula to make carrots, to temporarily create an additional formula to make peas and carrots by identifying the common step where the two processes can be conjoined.
  • Allows for the production of finished goods based on: (1) special customer requirements or (2) ingredients on hand, thereby satisfying customer demands when less than all required raw materials are available.
  • Converts automatically multiple, standard UOM’s specified in formulas and/or allows for the definition of user-defined conversion routines through simple, rules-based logic.
  • Ensures that the right ingredients and products are issued at the right time.
  • Enables designation as to when and much of an ingredient is to be introduced into the production process to ensure that active agents are properly scheduled or to allow sufficient time for resources (i.e. blending, grinding, mixing) to complete their cycles and achieve the desired effect.
  • Facilitates adding new packaging types, which are very common events, without having to change the formula, which is a very infrequent event, resulting in reduced formula maintenance and the possibly formulation errors.
  • Permits releasing production orders for make-to-stock and later issuing pack orders upon receipt of fir m customer orders for labeling and final packaging.
  • Generates material requirements based on available production orders and suggests purchase orders in case of shortages.
  • Using results of MRP, available resources, and customer demand, suggests resource scheduling to best meet requested delivery dates.
  • Provides complete visibility of supply chain by collaborating with customers to forecast demand, identifying the best manufacturing alternatives, and optimally scheduling internal resources.


  • Extensive tools for formula construction, control, and management.
  • Copy existing formula and substitute ingredients and/or proportions to create new formula.
  • Create nested or conjoined formulas.
  • Scalability of formula when production order is created.
  • Extensive UOM conversion engine.
  • Visibility to and consideration of expiration dates.
  • Resource routing integrated with formulization and elapse time to complete.
  • Separation of formula and pack recipes.
  • Private label, “brite” stock manufacturing.
  • Material Requirements (MRP).
  • Capacity Requirements Planning (CRP).
  • Demand forecasting, advanced planning, and advanced scheduling.
