Production

OVO-Vision Egg Packing

Knowing what to produce and knowing what is available is a must to improve your efficiency. OVO-Vision Grading creates a production plan for you. These type of production orders will be used to plan the consumption of ungraded eggs and the output of finished goods.

  • Planning system will calculate and propose what to produce based on sales; OVO-Vision will consider the customer requirements, quantity of the sales forecast, sales orders, inventory, planned receipts and existing production orders
  • Based on the proposed planning lines production orders will be made; OVO-Vision production is capable to plan multiple processes after each other and/or simultaneous
  • Based on the planned production orders, the planning system will calculate the material requirements to ful fil the demand of the MPS order
  • Plan eggs to use for production orders, eggs in inventory and expected from the farms and/or purchases can be selected; the system will show the expected grade out results of the selected eggs (based on last grade out results or average weight)
  • Machine and facility capacity can consider the making of a planning

At the end of the grading and packing process the packed eggs need to get labelled and put in the outer case box before they are put on a pallet to move over to the warehouse finished product. OVO-Vision can handle all the information that is needed to print on the product.

Keeping track of the correct amount produced is done through the system with a clear and easy to use screen where the product is shown with a picture and the progress via a graph:

  • Multiple machines
  • BOM components consumed normative
  • Labelling on all stages in the packing/complete process
  • End of lane printing or in advance printing
  • Complete production via buttons or scanners
  • Warehouse with warehouse locations/bins
  • Unique identifying product with lot numbers
  • Finished product check (QC)

The labelling can contain specific information requested by the customer:

  • Varied dates, best before use before
  • Information about the eggs used
  • Egg type
  • Housing type
  • Feed type
  • Origin (location)
  • All information coming from the origin of the egg can be transferred to the end of the grading/packing process

“OVO-Vision can interface with your grader.”

Loader:

Every batch that is put on the loader is fully known to the grader. All details can be made visible. The label on the batch is scanned with a barcode scanner and all relevant information is transferred to the grader. When using a de-palletizer (robot) you can connect the robot to OVO-Vision so it knows when the next pallet is going to be used. Grading results from every batch are automatically transferred into OVO-Vision to be processed further for multiple purposes.

The results can be used in the following areas:

  • Poultry farm invoice
  • Forecasting egg supply
  • Efficiency grading shift
  • Adjusting flock results for flock management

Production orders are sent to the grader to be selected to the individual packing lanes. A complete production plan with the resources and supplies needed can be printed or used in a digital way. This information can also be shown on a big screen to inform the packing team of the current situation and what they can expect.

The system has the functionality to run the MRP/MPS planning. This enables you to optimize the availability of resources and supplies. At the packing-lane we have the ability to print on:

  • The egg
  • Packing
  • Outer case
  • Pallet

Interfacing to VideoJet, Hitachi and Rational is available. Specific labeling requirements with applications like Bartender easily connect into OVO-Vision. After grading, the finished goods receive a label (pallet label or a RFID tag in the pallet) which enables you to identify the product in the warehouse, where it can be put into stock.

OVO-Vision has the ability to produce:

  • To order
  • To stock
  • A mix of produce to order with the addition of stock items

 

OVO-Vision Egg Processing

Liquid

Like packing eggs, OVO-Vision can make a production plan and taking customer requirements in consideration, like recipes. It even calculates the expected co- and by-products that will be produced by the planning of the primary product.

For example: A break order for egg yolk will also have yield of egg white (co-product) and egg shell (by-product). The planning engine will consider the egg white yield with planning proposal of egg white.

OVO-Vision also calculates the production time and best before date of the finished goods and it takes this into account when creating a production plan.

By scanning barcodes, you can track and trace the eggs during the production process, from receiving eggs, into the breaker, into pasteurizing. The finished goods receive an SSCC label and are ready for shipment. OVO-Vision can handle all different kinds of packages such as bag-in-boxes, tanks or pallecons etc.

 

Liquid – Whole/Yolk/White/Mix/Shell

OVO-Vision can handle every derivative from the breaking egg like whole, yolk, white, mix and shell in containers, tanks or other packaging.

Container administration
In the administration each container has a unique number and can have its own capacity (e.g. 100 kg, 800 kg). Available containers are also in the system.
This gives you the possibility to see the status (empty, filled, connected, shipped, etc.) the location, batch no., egg product and quality assurance (in research, blocked, released) of the containers.

Production planning
The integration with the production starts from the fill production planning. Each production run has a fill-, pasteurize- and best before date as well as a reservation comment that can be added. The system can generate production orders MRP/MPS with technical specifications per department.

Management information
To have the correct information with the right numbers the management can use BI Tools. Stock liquid egg, containers at customers, available containers, fill activity, etc. is per item no. or per batch or per period real time available.

 

Powder – Whole/Yolk/White/Mix

OVO-Vision can handle every derivative from the breaking egg like whole, yolk, white and mix into powder in containers, tanks or other packaging. Also drying methods like spray drying and freeze drying (crystal) we can handle. Hot room functionality is also available.

Container administration
In the administration each container has a unique number and can have its own capacity (e.g. 100 kg, 800 kg). Available containers are also in the system.
This gives you the possibility to see the status (empty, filled, connected, shipped, etc.) the location, batch no., egg product and quality assurance (in research, blocked, released) of the containers.

Production planning

• Interfaces with manufacturing equipment
• Provides forecast and production planning for specific products
• Opportunity to include product and/or customer specifications
• Includes accounting, sales, purchase, inventory management, warehouse management, production formulas and filling information
• Integrates quality control functions
• Interfaces with EDI systems

 

Boiling

The production process for hard boiled eggs is divided in 2 production orders, boiling and peeling. The production order boiling is derivative of the production order peeling. Eggs are going to be boiled only when there is a production order for peeling and taking the customer requirements into account.

OVO-Vision makes a production plan for boiled and peeled eggs in a solution and/or without brine. As the expiry date is important, OVO-Vision calculates the production time to meet the requirements.

 

Painting

The production process for painted eggs is divided in 2 production orders, boiling and painting. The production order boiling is derivative of the production order painting. Eggs are going to be boiled only when there is a production order for painting and considering the customer requirements.

The produced boiled eggs are the source for the production orders painting. There is therefore no additional administrative operation, but an administrative registration, namely the recording and debiting of the semi-finished boiled egg.
