The SPEC 2000 Formulation and Weighing System is the answer to the manufacturer’s need for a simplified system to computerize the formula database and provide a way to guide the operator through the accurate preparation of each batch. The system includes everything necessary to get started immediately, including all necessary cables and software.
The SPEC 2000 IMS Check Weigh software, written in Microsoft® Access running under Windows® 98, 2000, XP or NT is designed to be extremely easy to operate. After the system is turned on, the user simply clicks the mouse on the Check Weighing System icon to initiate the software application. The software features include search functions to quickly find existing formulas, delete old, save new, edit and copy existing, etc. The formula database is password protected, to insure good production formulas are not inadvertently changed or deleted. Other features include raw material and press return inventory control, job costing, and production reporting.
The weighing program is also very easy to operate, requiring minimal input. The weighing screen prompts the user for selection of the desired job number (if used), color formula to weigh, and batch size. A pop up formula list is used to scroll the formula list if the formula number is not known. The desired formula is located with the target weights of each ingredient for the batch displayed. Scale is tared automatically by the computer. The active window displays the actual weight of each ingredient as it is weighed. The computer beeps to alert the operator when the weight is within programmed tolerances. If the user incorrectly overweighs any ingredient, the user is prompted of the error and has the option to have the computer reformulate to make a larger batch size to compensate for the error. A weigh summary sheet is printed for each batch showing the exact batch information.
Production reporting is also provided. The user can display or print formulas, get usage information, job costing, or production history information for any selected date range.
