This functionality or add-on utility affects all three modules of Z-Bake: Accounts Receivable (AR), Purchase Order (PO) and Inventory Conrol and Costing (ICC).
The program has three distinct components:
1. It enables the program user to register where finished products with certain lot numbers end up. That is in the AR module user registers the identity of customers to whom certain products with certain lot numbers were sold.
2. It enables user to relate ingredients with certain lot numbers to the vendors from whom they were purchased. That is, in the PO module user registers ingredient lot numbers to the corresponding vendors.
3. It enables user to link or relate finished items with certain lot numbers to ingredients of distinct lot numbers.
As a result, when a vendor of an ingredient places a recall on ingredients of certain lot numbers, this functionality allows user to reveal within seconds the identity of customers who got delivery of products made from the recalled ingredient. Also, if a customer complains about a finished product, the program allows user to alert each vendor who provided an ingredient that made up that product.
