Why Use Lot Control and Shelf Life Inventory Management

Managing your inventory is important, but, managing your inventory when you have perishable items, is crucial. Inventory lot control can protect your stock from expiring before your customers receive it. Food, chemicals, and medical supplies, are not the only examples of industries that should be using lot control to maintain their inventory. Here are other industries that rely on lot control to maintain inventory:

    • Agriculture
    • Biotechnology
    • Chemical Manufacturing
    • Cosmetics
    • Food and Beverage
    • Food Processing
    • Health Care
    • Pharmaceutical

  • The Right Product at the Right Time

    The Clear Spider Lot Control and Shelf Life function assigns a lot, or batch number, to a group of items that have the same production or expiration date. The lot number helps the system track the grouped items’ expiration date, weight, and remaining shelf life. Tracking your products using these lot numbers, makes it simple to verify that you are sending out the right stock, at the right time. Using this function gives your company full control over your lots or batches.

  • Using Lot Control to Manage Defects

    Clear Spider Lot Control can be used for reasons beyond managing perishable stock. Grouping your products with batch numbers can help you identify which items were used to assemble a finished product. For example, your company produces cellphones and you find out that the battery is defective. It will be easier to identify the defective batteries if you know which batch it came from. This will help mitigate the risk associated with selling faulty products and reducing the number of items you will need to recall.
