Batch manufacturing or process manufacturing is the manufacturing of products that are typically produced in batches or in bulk with the resulting product having the unique characteristic that it cannot be disassembled once produced.
From soup to dough to paint to pills, once it is produced, you can’t take it apart again.
Process manufacturing involves the use of recipes or formulas to create products. The recipes may vary from batch to batch, depending on situational circumstances such as changing requirements, ingredient variations and substitutions.
Additionally, the end-product, or yield, may vary as a result from the changes or from spillage.
Numerous products produced by batch manufacturing / process manufacturing must comply with regulatory requirements, resulting in the need to manage, view and report on source, expiration date, lot, inspection and quarantine information.

Batch manufacturing / process manufacturing with Acctivate: How it works
Acctivate’s batch manufacturing / process manufacturing software handles the design, specifications and batch production of recipe-based or formula products and easily accommodates variations in ingredients and the batch yield.
The process begins with a product’s recipe or formula. Each ingredient is simply added to the bill of materials as a process assembly. Components can be specified as either variable or fixed. Ingredient previously established in the system can be added to the formula or recipe. Should components need to be adjusted before, during or after manufacturing to handle substitution or adjustments, the variable box is simply checked.
With each production run or batch, the ingredients are allocated to the assembly. Lot numbers can be assigned and references or notes can be added. Component quantities and the yield can be adjusted at any time.
