Cloud, standalone and multiuser
AFOS is built using hybrid-cloud technology which allows system installation on cloud or on client PC as standalone application. Cloud system is targeted for advanced users who wants to have virtual formulation office accessible by multiple clients with different access rights from any Windows PC with client AFOS application and from mobile devices using just browser. Standalone application is focused on users who wants traditional application with database saved locally.
Nutritional data organization
AFOS supports multi-plant and multi-animal group data organization without limitations on number of nutritional instances including plants, animal groups, nutrients, ingredients, products and recipes. User can freely add, edit, remove and customize all data, including adding new currencies, editing nutrient units, weight units, prices and additional costs. Engine for calculated nutrients can be used for advanced formulation which could be applicable for any type of feed.
For every complex process, AFOS allows creation of templates to reduce time for repetitive actions. User experience is additionally improved by smart filters and advanced search.
Advanced formulation engine
AFOS supports advanced formulation using comprehensive calculation engine. User can configure traditional nutrient and ingredient constraints in combination with ingredient and nutrients ratio constraints, combined constraints and post optimization coefficients.. Nutrients constraints can be configured in As Fed or Dry Matter mode. For infeasible formulas AFOS can calculate sub-optimal or “second best” results which are very useful for what-if analysis and problem solving. Detailed formula parameters like shadow prices, boundary prices, ingredient and nutrient distributions, formula dehydration and cost shares are also presented to user.
AFOS Multiblending feature and detailed automated reporting AFOS is real time saver. Multiblend module allows optimization of large number of formulas with just few clicks. User can assign various actions like add, remove or replace ingredient or constraint to whole group of formulas in few seconds which are then available for batch optimization. This is very useful for everyday situations when ingredient prices and availability changes on daily basis or for what-if analysis and decision making. Detailed reporting allows creation of customizable reposts from one or multiple formulas with ease.
Historical database allows saving formula instances though time for later comparison. Track you formulas to analyze your costs before and after.
Label management improves productivity by label creation process automation.
