Recipe Enforcement

Recipe enforcement is a big issue we hear about frequently. The goals are to improve quality and reduce waste.

Recipe enforcement really encompasses three separate type of systems: verify the correct type and/or quantity of ingredients is being added, verify the right tooling is in place before starting a process, or verify that only trained personnel are attempting to start a process.

In each case, we are automatically capturing data, comparing it to a set of criteria, and creating an output. That data may be captured through barcode or RFID and the output could be sound, light, or electrical signals that enable or inhibit machinery from running.
