Production catering

The Production catering document is located in the Administration panel\Warehouse\Production catering

There are two possible modes of writing-off:

  1. Write-off mode: in this mode, the warehouse stock will be written-off on actual basis of dishes sales. A writing-off document of sold dishes is created automatically and includes the calculation of a cost price for each ingredient which the dishes were made of.

If you press the Generate writing-off on sales button on the Warehouse\Production catering screen, only documents for writing-off by sales will be created.

  1. Production mode: in this mode, dishes and semi-finished goods production will be written-off on actual basis.

For production records, you have to go to the Administration panel: Products\Products and Dishes…

* and in the Production warehouse field, define a warehouse where the dish will be used after being made.

* and in the Recipe section, define the ingredients composition that are essential for a dish making.

 

After being made, the Dish comes to the production warehouse at cost price according to the job order cost card. Its composition ingredients are written-off accordingly.

If the Dish is moved to another warehouse for further selling, it will be recorded and written-off as a Product (without job order cost card) at the cost price of the production warehouse.

Writing-off documents of produced dishes are created manually in the following way:

  1. Press the Create button
  2. In the document card, set the Production mode

  5. Using the Ingredients list, you can modify a dish composition, for example, change products in the production.

 

If there is a stock balance in the warehouse, it will be written-off with an allowance of its average-weighted price.

If there is no stock balance and writting-off into the red is authorized (the flag Settings\Accounting policy\Authorize writing-off without products stock balance is set), the program will write-off at the last receipt price. The receipt price is defined in the Administration panel: Warehouse\Products arrival

Different measurement units for products arrival in the warehouse

If you need to declare products arrival in the warehouse using other measurement units than the base ones, go to the Products card through the Administration panel\Products\Products and Dishes\Meas.units tab and specify additional measurement units for your incoming order:

* Tap the Add Row button

* In this new line, input a measurement unit and a base unit calculation factor.

For example, we have Milk which base unit is the Litre. On the tab of measurement units management we can add an additional measurement unit “Bottle 1.5 l” with base unit calculation factor equal to 1.5. Thus to declare the receipt of 3 bottles in the warehouse, we have to specify “Milk, unit Bottle 1,5 l, quantity 3” in the products receipt document.  The program will automatically make the conversion of the quantity and price into base unit and we will get 1.5 * 3 = 4.5 litres entered the warehouse.

If you need to print a Z-report

Z-report is a special type of receipt printed on a cash drawer. It contains information of a day report. After running the End day function, the cash register will automatically reset its internal storage memory and all data will be saved and feed into the cash register fiscal memory. This report allows balancing cash drawers every day. Besides, the Payment transactions register is completed on the basis of this report. Thus following a consistent set of closing procedures (including printing and glueing your Z-report in the appropriate section of the Payment transactions register)  is essential to protect your establishment assets and avoid financial panalties for late capitalization of cash in your cash drawers.

When and haw many Z reports should be printed?

  • When your establishment or point of sale is open, it’s essential to produce a Z-report. At the end of the shift or day (in 24 hours at latest), you must reset the cash drawer, print a report and complete the Payment transactions register based on this report even if you came to work, switched on the till and performed an “internal payment” but you didn’t have a single customer, and you didn’t execute any payment transactions with cash.
  • When your establishment has days-off according to the validated working hours, it is not necessary to produce a day report.

Product card

You can find a product card in the Administration panel\Products\Products and dishes.
We use the Products term as a general designation for Goods, Ingredients, Dishes, Semi-finished products and Services.

Product card fields are intended to specify:

  • Type:
    • Products are common goods that you can sell or buy. Products don’t have any job order cost card. They can be determined as ingredients of dishes or semi-finished. As soon as a dish is sold, the sold quantity of products is written-off automatically by the Products write-off document.
    • Ingredients are components of dishes or semi-finished products. Ingredients are not visible on the tablet as it is supposed that they cannot be sold. If you need to sell ingredients, set the Type value equal to Products in the Products card
    • A Dish is made of Products and Ingredients (Chicken Kiev and Blueberry Martini cocktail) and it can be sold. Dish components are defined on the Job order cost card tab. After being sold the Dish components are written-off by the Food services production document. If a Dish is composed of another Dish or Semi-finished product, the components of these ones will be also added to be written-off.
    • Semi-finished products are the same as Products. This kind of category was created to easily distinguish dishes from semi-products.
    • Services represent intangible goods that can be sold and bought. But when a service is sold or bought, no warehouse movement is generated.

Main tab:

  • Selling price is a price written by default in the Price list (Menu) of the tablet. The price is indicated for a base unit. In the Price list (Menu) you have the possibility to set a price other than the one indicated in the Products reference book.
  • Barcode allows you to simplify products selection when executing selling or werahouse operations.
  • Weight items, this field defines if it’s necessary to input weight for products being sold. It can be used both for weighted and draught products.
  • Not present in price list, this field is intended to make products invisible in the Price list (Menu) of the tablet.
  • Min. stock balance represents a minimum products stock that must be in the warehouse. If a Stock balance drops under the minimum quantity, the corresponding line will be highlighted in red in the Stock balance and Products stocks movements report.
  • Recommended balance represents a products balance while achieving of which it is recommended to produce a request. If a Stock balance drops under the recommended quantity, the corresponding line will be highlighted in yellow in the Stock balance and Products stocks movements report
  • Coef. of shrinkage – the coefficient of shrinkage or frying is the coefficient determining the change in the weight of the product during its preparation or storage

Last receipt price value can be defined automatically by the Products receipt document or it can be set manually. This field is used to define a product’s price during writing-off or calculation of a dish’s cost price when this product is absent in the stock balance and it’s impossible to determine its average-weighted price.
