Defining materials for Process (Dairy) Industry

Hi all,

I have a scenario dealing with dairy industry. I need to define the materials for this purpose.

The business scenario is like below.

1) Raw milk having characterstics fat% & SNF% as class characterstics.

2) These characteristics will vary every day.

3. The raw milk is received from different vendors everyday and ERS is to be implemented.

4) The quantity received at dairy plant is final and aganist which a paymentslip is issued.

5) The milk price is calculated based on its fat and snf content.

e.g. vendor had supplied 1000 KG of milk (Weighing is easy when compared to measuring volume practically).

If that milk contains 6.2% fat and 9.2% snf.

Thus 1000 Kg of milk contains 62 Kg of Fat and 92 Kg of SNF.

For each Kg of Fat @ 250/- is paid and provided the SNF is equal to 9.0%. In case the snf is more or less by 0.1%, 70 paise per kg of milk is added or deducted accordingly.

6. All the above should be satisfied while procurement cycle is completed.

Second problem.

This raw milk is used to make toned milk (by standardization Process or by reducing the fat and snf). having a standard quantity of 3%fat and 8.5% snf. This can be achieved in different methods.

Now the calculation involves,

1000 Kg of raw milk 62 Kg fat 92 Kg SNF

The cream comes out as co -product having varying fat content from 22- 70%.

The normal yeild of cream is 4 -5% percent.

Now if we want to make toned milk we need,

950 kg of toned milk 28.5 Kf Fat and 80.75 Kg SNF

The balance of 62 - 28.5 = 33.5 Kg fat came out in terms of cream along with excess SNF( adjustment of SNF of ignored).

Now How to design the materials????

For me Kg fat and KG snf are very important and I want to base on this only.

I will reward without fail. Please help me......
