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:
- 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.
