Dynamic Systems Inc., a Redmond, Washington software developer specializing in barcode data collection, has announced the release of SIMBA Lite 2012, which is designed to provide food processors the ability to process, label and track their products from “field or dock to customer”.

The SIMBA (Specialized Inventory Management with Barcode Accuracy) system solves the problem of how to produce and track complete product labeling for fresh food on the fly.

SIMBA Lite is designed for those companies that process in bulk (similar or same products into constant weight cartons).  The system allows a production line worker to change content of product labels with a fingertip on the computer or touch screen, capturing product information (weight, size, color, grade) and printing a label with a barcode identifier for that tote or carton. The label information is stored in the SIMBA inventory system, which then provides production and inventory reports. The cartons may then be accumulated onto a pallet, and tracked with a single pallet identifier. This integrated system gives the user complete traceability of the product from receiving to shipping. The cartons or pallets can be stored and tracked by location within the warehouse, cooler or freezer.

At the time of shipping, the Van Loading feature of SIMBA tracks each carton or pallet onto a specific van.  A Bill of Lading is then produced automatically.  This feature not only saves time in the shipping process, it eliminates disputes with the customer regarding what was actually shipped.

Key results from implementing the SIMBA software include increased production speed; the ability to get same day, accurate production reports; ability to fulfill traceability requirements; accurate inventory; professional looking carton and pallet labels; and expedited van loading.
