This article details how you can use vintrace to track topping without updating a wine’s composition. Because this method of tracking topping could conflict with your government’s or region’s reporting requirements, you’ll need to determine if you’re allowed to track topping operations in this manner.
Another consideration is that tracking your toppings in this manner will NOT add the cost of the topping material to the destination batch. You’ll need to manually adjust any costs based on these operations.
To record a topping without updating your wine’s composition, you’ll need to do the following:
- Create a product treatment.
- Apply the product treatment to the batches that you’ve topped.
- Deplete the wine in vessel that you used as your topping material.
Creating a Product Treatment
Add a product treatment to record a topping.
Applying the Product Treatment
The next step in the process is to apply the product treatment that you created to the batches that you’ve topped. To do this, you’ll need to use the Treatment (Product) operation. You can access the Treatment (Product) operation from the following:
You can also add a Treatment (Product) job to a work order.
Be sure to set the Treatment to the product treatment that you created.
The operation is included in the history of each wine and will also be included in the Operation Throughput report.
Depleting Your Topping Material
The final step in the process is to deplete the wine in vessel that you used as your topping material. To do this, you’ll need to use the Measurement operation. You can access the Measurement operation from the following:
You can also add a Measurement job to a work order.
Be sure to enter the amount that you used for topping in the Loss field. You’ll also need to select an appropriate loss reason so that you can report on wine used for topping.
