HACCP recording in abattoirs is usually paper-based and generally records only non-conformances and corrective actions. The project describes a system for computerized real-time data capture of abattoir inspection information using a Visual Basic interface to record to Microsoft Excel. A HACCP plan for beef slaughter was written together with flow charts and CCP record sheets. A user interface was designed to capture CCP inspection data in a format that allows reporting and analysis. The system was used to record inspection CCP data in a beef abattoir. Examples of reports that may be extracted from the system are included. The data is subjected to analysis for use in HACCP management. The main aim of this project was to develop a rudimentary instrument to capture inspection data and to produce reports.
