Millers have been producing for hundreds of years. Milling is one of the oldest food manufacturing industries, although, over that time, the basic process has remained the same.
Modern-day milling has the challenge of converting grain of varying grades into products to be used by bakers with ever-stricter controls on flour quality for their core ingredients. The demand for the timely supply of a consistent product made to rigorous guidelines means that operations depend upon the successful managing of raw materials, the capacity to test against standardised grade and quality properties and the ability to optimise the efficiency of the mill.
As a key ingredient for widespread use across our entire food chain, the traceability of the origin and grade of incoming raw material stocks, from when they enter the supply chain, along the milling process and to the end product, is another priority for flour manufacturers in this day and age. This makes mill management software the perfect component for tightening procedures.
Milling facilities also need to balance the conflicting factors of avoiding production downtime that costs money and managing the constraints on raw materials storage. This means that long term supply agreements with trusted growers and merchants are critical to supply chain management.
The financial impacts of production downtime paired with the effect on customer satisfaction, and more significantly on the food chain, mean that investing in the right systems to support the company has to be a priority for any milling operation.
Alongside the proven, effective business management functionality that is standard with any Primetics implementation, specialist mill management software has also been developed over years of working together with clients in the sector to help to tackle the specific challenges of the milling industry.
