Uncontrolled manual scaling wastes ingredients and production time and is a major barrier to compliance with Title III of the Bioterrorism Act, HACCP, BRC and SQF. It is also one of the major causes of bad or out of spec batches. PRIMS Scaling System eliminates these problems.

Management Control –This System is user-friendly, requiring little training to operate. Controls all manual ingredient scaling, additions and operator instructions, and provides a computerized record of each step in the mixing process, giving management the tools to prevent any inconsistencies within a batch. PRIMS generates reports for Ingredients, Formulas, Production, Scaling, Ingredient Usage, and Lot Numbers. Management can also can import inventory levels and finished production data into the company’s accounting software for accurate inventory control.
