Mishkat Farms is dedicated to delivering fresh, healthy, and environmentally friendly produce, transforming the local food industry in Saudi Arabia.
Farming Process in Tomato Cultivation:
1. Nursery Stage:
- Seeds, soil, water, and fertilizer are placed in a sponge tray for germination.
- Germination of seeds takes approximately 20-25 days.
2. Transplant Stage:
- Sprouted plants are transferred to rockwool cubes.
- Soil, water, and fertilizer are added to facilitate growth.
- This stage typically lasts around 20 days.
3. Bench Stage:
- The greenhouse consists of 29 benches, each measuring 28m.
- Rockwool slabs, with a length of 1m, are placed on each bench.
- Rockwool cubes are positioned on the slabs.
- Water and liquid fertilizer are administered to the cubes using a syringe.
- It takes approximately 35-40 days to produce cherry tomatoes.
- Ripe red and yellow tomatoes are carefully plucked from the plants.
- Harvesting occurs twice a week.
5. Packaging Process:
- Tomatoes are packed in 250g boxes.
- Each harvest is assigned a unique lot number for traceability.
Without an ERP integration, Mishkat Farms would face inefficiencies, manual processes, and a lack of visibility and control in their manufacturing operations. These challenges could lead to production delays, inventory management difficulties, quality control issues, and limitations in maintaining product traceability.
1. Nursery Stage:
- Allocating a suitable location for the seeding process.
- Ensuring consistent seed germination.
- Managing variations in seed, soil, and fertilizer quantities.
2. Transplant Stage:
- The success rate of plants in the rockwool cubes may vary.
- Determining which type of cube (from KSA/UAE) yields better results.
3. Bench Stage:
- Determining the preferable type of rockwool slab (from KSA/UAE).
- Managing different numbers of cubes on each slab.
- Implementing barcodes on all benches for easy scanning and data input in Odoo.
- Addressing uneven harvest distribution due to the air conditioning system favoring specific benches.
- Managing different tomato varieties grown on the benches.
- Allocating a separate bench or slabs exclusively for research and development purposes.
- Maintaining a specified percentage of spoilage from each bench.
- Recording valid reasons in the Odoo system when spoilage exceeds the agreed percentage.
5. Packaging Process:
- Assigning a unique lot number to each harvest for efficient tracking and traceability.
- Managing limited space in the fridge due to stock from all zones.
A BOM was established in Odoo for the nursery stage, ensuring accurate material planning and consumption. This allowed Mishkat AG Project to efficiently allocate resources and minimize variations in seed, soil, and fertilizer quantities.
A BOM was defined in Odoo for the planting stage, enabling precise tracking of material requirements and consumption. Work orders in Odoo were used to ensure efficient resource allocation and smooth execution of planting operations.
Odoo's BOM feature for the bench stage ensured accurate tracking of material quantities, including rockwool slabs, cubes, water, liquid fertilizer, and more. The Manufacturing Order functionality in Odoo facilitated easy creation and management of manufacturing orders for each bench, resulting in a seamless production flow.
Mishkat benefits from Odoo's Manufacturing features by streamlining their manufacturing process, improving inventory management, enhancing traceability and quality control, optimizing resource planning, enabling accurate reporting and analysis, and facilitating collaboration and communication. These advantages result in increased operational efficiency, better decision-making, and improved productivity for Mishkat.
Technaureus has developed a customized workflow for Mishkat that enables users to record spoilage incidents in the Odoo ERP system. With this module, users can conveniently document the reasons for the spoilage and include photographs of the affected tomato products. This functionality enhances traceability and enables detailed analysis of spoilage incidents during the tomato harvesting process.
Odoo's workflow management capabilities streamlined the classification and packing stages of cherry tomatoes. By utilizing Odoo's Manufacturing features, Mishkat maintained an organized workflow, tracked quantities of packed tomatoes, and ensured efficient inventory management.
With the support and expertise of Technaureus Info Solutions as their implementation partner, Mishkat AG Project successfully optimized resource allocation, minimized material consumption variations, and achieved overall workflow management excellence throughout their cherry tomato manufacturing process. The combined power of Odoo's ERP capabilities and Technaureus' implementation expertise contributed to their manufacturing transformation journey.
