Food & Beverage Training

Prepared for Winn Technology

October 24, 2008

  • Scott Pugmire

    • Sr. Vertical Industry Manager

Purpose of this presentation

Purpose of this Presentation

  • To learn how to gather information from a food or beverage (F&B) manufacturer, distributor, or service company in order for the next step in the sales cycle to be well prepared (i.e. Sage lead distribution, partner follow-up)

  • Understand their pains for ROI

  • Have them feel comfortable that you understand what they do

A Little Industry Background

Key concepts

Key Concepts

  • Process Manufacturing – blending of ingredients “goop” vs. assembly of “widgets” (aka discrete manufacturing)

  • F&B manufacturing has complex requirements and they are getting more complex every day.

  • Complex requirements require complex and flexible solutions.

  • Very few ERP solutions for the SMB market fulfill the requirements of F&B manufacturers. Many F&B manufacturers are on “home-grown” applications.

Food beverage sub verticals

Food & Beverage Sub-Verticals

Food beverage issues

Food & Beverage Issues

  • Regulatory / Food Safety

    • Bioterrorism Act

    • HACCP

    • ISO 22000

    • cGMP

    • Kosher / Halal standards

Food beverage issues1

Food & Beverage Issues

  • Process manufacturing capability is essential for manufacturers where formulas and recipes replace bills of materials and inconsistent raw products must be converted into consistent quality output

    • Recipe Management

    • Quality Control

    • Catch Weight Management - parallel inventory accounting of varying weights from piece to piece, either due to biological variations or because of weight loss during storage

  • Strict federal regulatory requirements must be adhered to by both manufacturers and distributors.

    • Inventory Management.

    • Vendor/ Raw Item Traceability.

    • Product Labeling Requirements

    • Bio-Terrorism Act Compliance

  • Special inventory handling via refrigerated or other means applied to warehousing and logistics to compensate for inventory shelf life limitations

Food beverage issues general

Food & Beverage Issues - General

  • Expiration/freshness dates of ingredients and finished goods

  • Dynamic / fast-paced manufacturing environments

  • Material handling can be very manual

  • Ingredients can have varying attributes from lot to lot in some industries

  • Rebate and promotion programs for distributors

  • Quality control is very important

  • Production scheduling by attribute (i.e. allergen, color, etc)

Food beverage opportunities

Food & Beverage Opportunities

  • Expiration/freshness – Do you think F&B mfg is going overseas? I doubt it

  • Dynamic / fast-paced – They need an ERP designed specifically for them; work arounds in a discrete system don’t work.

  • Manual material handling – O2 Warehouse automation was made with Smart- CodeTM Technology.

  • Varying attributes – O2 lot attribute functionality

  • Rebate and promotion – EVS and Nextec to deliver solution soon

  • Quality control – O2 has a robust, integrated QC module

The marketing silver bullet

The Marketing “Silver Bullet”

  • Unfortunately there isn’t one!

    • Understand the industry:

    • Needs by sub-vertical

    • The solution that O2 provides

    • Persistence – don’t quit

  • EVS is working for you:

    • Success stories

    • Features / functionality

    • Complimentary products

    • “National View” of requirements

Must read list

Must Read List

  • - ISO 22000

  • - Bioterrorism Act

  • - Food Allergen Labeling and Consumer Protection Act

Key concepts1

Key Concepts

  • An ERP that works the way they do.

    Round peg – Round hole

  • Split Bill of Materials – Separating Goop from packaging

  • Fully integrating all departments – typically QC (quality control) and formula management are left out.

F b 5 leading questions

F & B: 5 Leading Questions

  • How do you determine what to make and when to make it?

  • How do you manage recipes/formulas?

  • Tell me about your manufacturing process

  • Describe your quality control processes

  • Describe your regulatory requirements

F b question 1 drill down

F&B: Question 1 Drill-Down

How do you determine what to make and when to make it?

  • What to make = how is demand determined…

    • sales forecast, open orders, transfers to other locations

  • When to make = how do they plan production;

    • MRP, infinite scheduling; finite scheduling, scheduling based on attributes (allergen, color, type, etc.).

    • Do they have to manage expiration dates

  • When they make a batch, do they have multiple finished goods? Co-products and by-products – explain the concept of split BOM

    • Schedule by the formula, multiple finished goods can be produced

F b question 2 drill down

F&B: Question 2 Drill-Down

How do you manage recipes/formulas?

  • Most SMB-sized companies keep formulas in Excel

    • Issues:

      • Security; loss, backup, and theft

      • Costing – how do they know how much the formula will cost?

      • What happens when they want to substitute an ingredient in all formulas

  • How do you indicate what QC tests to take on the formula

  • How do you keep revision history of changes

F b question 3 drill down

F&B: Question 3 Drill-Down

Tell me about your overall manufacturing processes that you haven’t covered already

  • Should uncover any specific or peculiar techniques that they employ to transform raw goods into finished product.

    • May uncover some potential pain points in their processes

    • May be able to determine if there is something special that they do that their competitors don’t. (These will be critical factors to include in the partner’s final solution offering)

F b question 4 drill down

F&B: Question 4 Drill-Down

Describe your quality control processes

  • Incoming materials

  • Manufactured materials

    • How to determine what to test

    • What test to do

    • Outside process (micro testing)

  • HACCP Procedures(pronounced “hassip”)

    • Metal detector

  • ISO 22000

F b question 5 drill down

F&B: Question 5 Drill-Down

Describe your regulatory requirements

  • Describe your procedures to be compliant with the Bioterrorism Act

  • Do you have to produce nutritional labels for your products? If so, how do you currently do that?

  • If they deal with allergens, how do they manage allergens and avoid cross contamination of products?
