* The SAP-ERP system also has control checks built within, such as FEFO
for issuing material to manufacturing, recoding changes in data and audit trails.
All of the Recipe Data is stored centrally on a management PC which can easily be integrated with the Stevens Stock System, which is being implemented by Janes Pantry in January 2009, to enable FEFO
(First Expired, First Out) to be practiced and enforced at the weighing terminals.
This enables customers to ascertain if some products have been more affected than others and, if so, implement an effective FEFO
(First Expired, First Out) policy.
Beyond these issues are the normal ones that help justify the WMS purchase: Optimizing carton sizing with available cube to use all space available; Minimizing honeycombing of storage areas; The ability to prioritize putaway locations so that the system looks first at primary areas, then at second, third, and tertiary choices; Management of FEFO/LEFO issues within user defined granularity; Optimizing inventory turns with shortage triggered replenishment or opportunistic cross docking within FEFO
granularity; and Merging of the cross docked material to the correct customer order.
Software also enables retrieval strategies like first in, first out (FIFO); last in, first out (LIFO); or first expired, first out (FEFO
SNS also setup the system to capture all required information at receiving time, ensuring that it is available when shipping and such rules as FEFO
are respected when stocks are picked.
The Lot number is then validated by the 'Vantage' terminal and the system checks that the Lot Number has been through the FEFO
rotation process (First Expired, First Out).
The system also rotates inventory by first-in, first-out (FIFO) and first-expired, first-out (FEFO
Providing the ability to allocate items based on FIFO, FMFO, LEFO, LMFO, and FEFO
to effectively manage inventory, FootPrint is able to track inventory by lot, SKU, and UPC.
Automation also provides easy tracking of first-in, first-out (FIFO) or first-expired, first-out (FEFO
"A WMS needs the capability to look at both FIFO (first-in, first-out), and FEFO
(first expiration date, first out) criteria."
