Production Management

RapidFish provides complete visibility and control over production, inventory and quality control in an integrated package.
The system maintains traceability through levels from receipt of raw materials through processing, packaging, palletizing and shipping.

Receipt of Raw Material

Raw materials can be registered both manually or imported from external systems. Necessary details (date, lot id, species, site, unit, av. weight, etc.) are registered with the intake consequently creating a traceability code down to the required level.

Traceability

Traceability code defines the first level of the traceability required. The code can be defined on a single item or a subset of items. The traceability code then follows the item through the entire process from intake through sales.

The system maintains traceability through levels from receipt of raw materials through processing, packaging, palletizing and shipping.

Packing & Palletizing

The system simplifies packing products directly for orders or to stock. Pallets can be created automatically, and all labels or documents are created accordingly.

Inventory Control

In RapidFish it is possible to create and control unlimited number of storage locations, internal or external ones. The system maintains the location
of the raw material, intermediate products and end products at all times and supports holding inventory of all packing material and ingredients.

Various functions can be carried out at storage location by maintaining traceability linkage. For example:

  • Splitting or merging of pallets.
  • Performing storage transfer.
  • Splitting a pallet in a third party warehouse and applying external lot ID.

Yield Control

Yield monitoring is created from any flow of weighing data with defined in/out series. RapidFish can calculate the yield between any two or more data collecting points, depending on definition and reporting needs.

KPIs

You can define various KPIs in RapidFish to measure your performance and evaluate against your production objectives, for example:

  • Equipment & worker efficiency
  • System downtime and causes of error
  • Actuals against target values

Quality Inspections

Guarantee your quality with our centralized online system linking to your lot, order, box, pallet or customer for easy tracking & traceability.

The RapidFish quality module is comprehensive and flexible in allowing organisations to effectively manage internal quality programs, tracking and quickly resolve quality control issues. The module allows users to build customized quality inspections with fully selectable criteria and parameters within a simple and easy to use interface.

Features:

  • Approval before inspection is confirmed

  • Attachment of pictures or external documents

  • Send notification feature if a value is outside normal range

  • Numerous inspection value types, text, numeric, boolean, temperature, weight, custom grade, dropdown list, date

  • Parent/child inspection

  • Effective reporting

Customizable Interface

The user interface is customizable and can be used on a touchscreen or a mobile device if requested. The system allows the setup of a „parent child“ related inspection, as well as place exception values on a single quality parameter or on the inspection as a whole.

It is possible to incorporate supervisor approval in the workflow. If a value is out of the normal parameters the system can automatically send alerts or notifications via text messages or email. Quality inspections can be viewed and reports generated from various sources, tracking back to a specific production lot.

Process Monitoring

Advanced process monitoring provides actionable insight critical to the production process.

Valka Process Monitoring (SCADA) gathers machine performance and processing data for all machines.

The system instantly displays if a machine or module is running normally or in error. A graphical layout with marking on all sensors, cylinders, motors and scales that will indicate where maintenance is required if a module detects an error.

When any error occurs the error is indicated in the EventLog window of the respective application. With a mouse click the user has access to the respective overview image.

Label Design & Printing

RapidFish offers simple WYSIWYG label design within the interface. Labels can be designed with all data from the master database and/or any selected text. Centralized label library allows deployment of all label changes globally.

The label system allows for:

  • Client and order specific labels

  • Multiple characters, incl. Chinese & Cyrillic

  • Reprinting of labels (by box / pallet)

  • Drag & drop design feature

  • Centralized label library

  • Remote and local design of labels

  • Multiple barcode types, QR codes or RF ID

  • Images

Order Management

RapidFish provides comprehensive order handling from registration to shipping. All stakeholders with permission may follow an order in real-time, whether the order is pending, in production, being packed or shipped.

Order & Client Handling

RapidFish provides comprehensive order handling from registration to shipping. RapidFish incorporates an easy-to–use browser interface and allows those with permission to register orders that are instantly available for sales people, production staff and management. Orders can also be received from other systems into RapidFish, e.g. through TXT, XML, EDI. Everyone can follow an order in real-time whether the order is pending, in production, being packed or shipped. The reduction of typing saves time and minimizes mistakes.

Vendor and customer handling is embedded into the RapidFish system. All information associated with a customer is linked to orders. The „product alias“ function allows customers to use their own product codes for simplification. The initial customer information can be imported from the ERP system and synced if needed.

Price & Cost Items

The system supports many pricing options. For example, day, week or contract prices can be set, as well as multiple currencies. Custom cost types can be defined as a fixed amount or proportional to user defined options, such as weight. A cost type can be associated with specific customers or contracts for time saving purposes.

Order Communication

With its commenting (chat) & notification capabilities the system ensures that the correct information is always presented quickly to the right people via email and text message.

Dispatching & Document Handling

Dispatching is a standard feature in the system. All information related to a customer’s order is linked to the shipment and relevant shipping documents can be created with the dispatch information stored in the system. Furthermore, Rapidfish can function as a order related document management system. It is possible to attach additional documents, with origin in another system, to an order and thus RapidFish can store all order related documents.

Permission Based Customer Access

  • Place orders and request changes
  • Review and track orders
  • Fetch packing lists and quality reports

Planning Against Sales Orders

RapidFish allows for the planning of raw material requirements based on real and forecasted sales orders. Within a simple „Excel like“ interface the user has a broad overview of the raw material available and expected, current production and sales, as well as what is available to promise (ATP). The user can monitor the production in real time and easily modify the orders to match the production.
