Static and variable costs embedded within formulas and bills of material contribute to the costs of finished goods. These costs consist of fixed setup charges, scalable labor, tiered labor, markups, margins and losses that may be automatically adjusted based upon the total batch size at time of production.

Now you can aggregate demand and execute a single batch job for a formula that can satisfy multiple finished goods of different sizes, packaging and label requirements, as well as gain control of a reduced set of specifications. QC tests, special manufacturing instructions, losses, and costs, including material, labor, static and variable costs, are defined in Formulas and Finished Goods Packaging specifications.

Sample Management module creates the formula and packaging specifications for new products requested by either internal or external sources. Sample development is an optional precursor process to the formulation and packaging bill of materials processes. Sample Management identifies the requestor, their profile, specific product requirements and then tracks the progress of this new product from request to acceptance.
