Lab & Formulation

Formulation

Quickly develop, analyze and approve your recipes or formulas

Formulation manages the specifications of your products, including intermediates, co-products and by-products. In addition to defining product ingredients, product developers can embed QC tests, special manufacturing instructions and costs within the specifications. All ingredient characteristics, including costs, are rolled up into your recipe or formula specification.

Your production staff will associate your specification to one or more packaging BOMs to produce one or more finished goods. Note that bills of material used for finished goods packaging and configurations are managed in a separate Bills of Material module.
