Automatic Date Calculation

It would be really helpful if the system could automatically calculate dates for shelf life, use by dates, etc. based on the date that the record is generated and/or the product or material being produced. This would help production a ton since they wouldn't have to calculate these dates or remember the shelf life for each product.

    Hi, perhaps you could provide a little more detail. 

    Would you envisage the Batch Record automatically calculating the BBD based upon the ingredient with the shortest shelf life? If so, this would require the addition of a BBD column to the Batching record.

    Also, is this where production would come to find this information?

    It would be really neat if we could assign each Product a shelf life value in the Product profile. The Batching or Monitoring record could then automatically calculate and display the use by date based on the date of production.

    I think something similar to this would be awesome for raw materials also, but that might be more complicated since the date would be calculated off of the expiration date of each batch of incoming ingredient.
