Recipe / Bill of Materials ( BoM )



Floor Plan



In an advanced inventory system stores may need to track finished items (Cooked foods)  produced from raw materials ( ingredients).  Bars can also track cocktails from different types of wines. 

Recipes are lists of items and quantities with instructions written as a note. To create a recipe store needs to create Finished items and Raw materials in their inventory database. In the following example to produce Martini, Store needs to create two raw materials: Gin and Dry vermouth. To configure a recipe store also need to create relevant units of measurements like Oz.

#Recipe typeDescription
1Default Recipe in ItemIf a menu item has a default recipe, raw materials will be deducted based on the recipe while that Item is ordered.
2Independent RecipesThe recipe can be used to yield a large amount of food. For example, a restaurant may produce 3 Gallons of Chicken soup.

Yield and Portion
Yield is how much a recipe makes. The portion is how much you would serve one person. For example, minestrone soup has a yield of 3 gallons, while the portions are calculated in fluid ounces such as an eight-ounce cup or a twelve-ounce bowl serving

Cooking Process & Time
They are for future use. In a batch, process items are cooked in a fixed time. In a continuous process, quality is produced based on time.  

This is a similar process as the previous one. The only difference is this recipe is added to the item.

When a recipe is set, ingredients are deducted from the selling of the product.
