Cutler profiled the significant technology advances of aseptic processing and packaging for Food Manufacturers at http://www.ifsqn.com/articles_detail.php?newsdesk_id=302&t=Aseptic+Process+and+Packaging.
According to Rebecca Gill, Vice-President of Toledo-based, Technology Group International (www.tgiltd.com) food ERP (enterprise resource planning) package Enterprise 21, "Aseptic processing is supported by few of the leading Food enterprise resource planning (ERP) solutions."
Gill suggests that the technology must support the aseptic process in the following ways:
&bullEnable a multi-level bill of materials to ensure the exact packaging material and specification is associated with the correct finished good product and customer requirement.
&bullEnable a full MRP process that helps ensure packaging materials are available when needed within the manufacturing process.
&bullEnable such elements as lot tracking, manufacture date tracking, and expiration date tracing to help ensure no customer ever received product outside of the acceptable usage timeframe.
&bullEnable the segregation of storage specific products so that cross contamination is eliminated. For example, establish specific storage "types" to warehouse and manufacturing locations and tying these to specific products. A protected product can only be stored in a protected location.
