SIMBA updates touch screen, software

New updates to the SIMBA Touch Screen will give users greater control of the ability to monitor pack lines in real-time, know what is in inventory and record shipments. The SIMBA (Specialized Inventory Management with Barcode Accuracy) System solves the problem of how to produce and track complete product labeling for fresh food on the fly, according to Dynamic Systems.

The SIMBA system runs on an updated touch screen (similar to the fast food industry), allows workers to switch attributes on the fly and print product labels from the field or at any pack line with all pertinent information (including a GS-1 code), capturing product information (weight, size, color, grade) for that carton or bag. The label information is stored in the SIMBA Office inventory, which provides data for inventory management, traceability and shipping. The cartons may be accumulated onto a pallet and tracked with a single pallet identifier.

At the time of shipping, the Van Loading feature of SIMBA tracks each carton or pallet onto a specific van. A Bill of Lading is then produced automatically.

According to the Dynamic Systems, key results from implementing the SIMBA Traceability Software include real-time production reporting, fulfillment of traceability requirements, more accurate inventory, professional looking carton and pallet labels, and verified shipping.
