Fully integrated product specification and ingredient management

Boy and burger

The cornerstone of any quality management program is the ability to effectively manage your Product Specifications from ideation to approval, and every revision and variation thereafter. CMX1's PLM module empowers your team to create, control, manage, and track all your Finished and Raw Material Product Specification, Formulations, and Ingredients. Workflow automation and supplier collaboration features automate the creation and approval process from initial draft to finalized status.

Make quality
your secret ingredient

To achieve Quality Excellence, quality and safety must be part of your product design from the get-go. This requires powerful information management capabilities and accurate information. CMX1 provides the tools to innovate, quickly bringing new products to market with control and safety.

“Our menu is diverse and we source from thousands of suppliers. It’s a tough problem to tackle and CMX was the right choice for us. With their platform, Burger King, Tim Hortons, and Popeyes have continued to aggressively scale, while maintaining control and oversight over supplier and product quality.”

Diego Beamonte Head of Quality Assurance for Restaurant Brands International

A winning formula

Simple to comprehensive Product Specifications

Leverage either simple attachment-based specifications or comprehensive data-driven options. CMX1's attachment-based option utilizes a simpler authoring and approval workflow. Fill in header information, specify approved ingredients, and add as many attachments as needed. For a more comprehensive approach, CMX1's data-rich, forms-based approach allows you to specify with great detail all the information you need to manage your specifications, formulations, and ingredients. Utilize differing templates for product types, including formulations, finished product standards, processing control points, attachments, and more.

Full Lifecycle Management

Workflow automation helps your team author and approve Finished Product & Raw Material Specifications. Collaborate internally and with suppliers. Leverage reusable formulations with automated weights and measures. Define finished product standards, process control points, shelf life requirements, and packaging. A built-in Ingredient database provides consistency and country of origin declaration requirements. Add attachments. Specification templates can account for differing brand, region, country, and product category requirements. Manage revisions and variations to maintain control and oversight.

Approve Suppliers for Production

Your process may be simple to complex or vary by product category. Either way, CMX1 can help you collect and evaluate the necessary documentation and information needed before you approve a supplier to produce a product for your network. Request a facility audit, nutritional and allergen information, certifications, packaging labeling and graphics, product evaluations, and ingredients sourcing if needed. It's up to you and you're in control.

Nutrition and Allergens

Ingredient Sourcing & Multi-Tier Mapping

Most of your risk is likely beyond Tier 1. Utilize CMX1's Ingredient Sourcing to identify, map, and track the sources of ingredients used in your finished products. Ensure you know the source and compliance status of your supplier's suppliers and go beyond the normal "one up, one down" model for managing risk.
