CheeseCrafter® Total Production and Quality Management Software for Cheese, Yogurt and Butter Manufacturers.

The CheeseCrafter® Total Production & Quality Management (TPQM) Software System provides cheese makers or managers of cheese manufacturing plants with a comprehensive system for getting control of the documents for their process and optimizing quality plus profitability.  Data Entry is now possible via Interactive Data Entry both locally via the main PC or remotely via a Tablet which can be brought into the production floor. It is now also possible to do data entry on multiple vats simultaneously!

Some of the key benefits of the CheeseCrafter® are:

  • Automated Inventory adjustment when Make Sheet is created
  • Batch tracking from dairy source (animal or supplier) to finished cheese
  • Recording of incoming milk composition values at reception
  • Recording of specific milk composition per vat and batch
  • Prediction of optimal cheese yield based upon milk composition per batch and modeling of different approaches to the process which will improve actual yields or assist in developing new products
  • Full Quality Assurance documentation of each of the cheese production process steps and ingredient lots used
  • Automatic cost calculation per specific batch
  • Interactive date entry on a tablet (i.e. on the production floor or at the cheese vat. Tablet not included)
  • Full export capabilities for export of data to external software systems
  • Full ingredient traceability with search function (batch or lot search)

The CheeseCrafter® is a comprehensive production and quality management system, which features four separate but integrated modules that provide support, assistance and insight throughout the cheese making process.  The includes:

The remote Interactive Data Entry is using a Tablet , which can be brought on to the production floor.  The the program is open and a Make-Sheet is secected it will show all its Production Steps, automatically down count of time to next, have full data entry of all Quality Control Points, and time change is possibly on the fly if the setting of the cheese is not as expected.

The CheeseCrafter is designed to work with all LactiCheck models as well as the LactiWhey, as the main milk data provider, but can also be delivered with Manual data entry capability.

The CheeseCrafter can work in both the full version and as the Cheese Maker’s Work Station at a remote location. The later just requires access to the full version’s data base via local LAN.
