Portland, Ore. (PRWEB) July 24, 2009
Northwest Analytical presents a new screencast, ISO 22000 Compliant Food Safety Systems, which examines the ISO 22000 standard and the role of standard commercial software in implementing a compliant food-safety-management system (FSMS). ISO 22000 is a linked standard and the FSMS is the enabling system architecture. The standard describes a FSMS that is not simply a records archive, but rather an active process-management tool.
The webinar describes the strategy of creating and maintaining a system to manage the operational aspects of prerequisite and HACCP programs, ingredient and product genealogy, and quality management with the necessary alerts and analytics to support truly intelligent process management and improvement. The session also discusses how the FSMS links with other corporate functions such as supply chain management.
ISO 22000 Compliant Food Safety Systems addresses these frequently asked questions:
- What are the components of the FSMS specified in ISO 22000?
- What is feasible to automate in programs such as prerequisite conditions and HACCP management?
- Which functions are handled by standard software modules and where is customization required?
- What is the role of active process alerts and analytics for effective food safety management and improvement?
- How is the FSMS operationally integrated with other enterprise computing?
