Bill Of Materials
« on: January 14, 2018, 06:11:50 AM »

Received the following questions by email :

Hello support,

Happy new year,hope you are all well.

I have a query that I am kindly asking for a suggestion or solution.

How would one handle a situation where you have meat that is released from a warehouse and then processed into say mince or sausage.(end product).

E.g 100 Kg of meat is released to produce say 140 Kg of Sausage's.

How would the whole process be transacted in 4pos Scan ?

The quantity of mince produced is not standard/fixed so o assume that we may not use BIll of materials.

Your help will be highly appreciated.

Kind Regards,

Liwanga.
For and on behalf of jumbo Trading.

Bill of Materials can be used to simply update your stock at time of sale OR allow you to pre-make (Manufacture) items in advance.

Eg.

1. At Time of Sale eg. Burgers, Sandwiches, Meals etc : The Items that make up the Bill Of Material will be updated (Deducted) as & when the sale happens.

2. In the 4POSbackOffice program, under Stock Take, you will find the "Make finished Product" option.

This option has been designed for eg. a bakery / supermarket where Bread is baked in the morning & then sold during the day. As you enter the number of loaves baked, the ingredients are taken out of stock & you are left with eg. 400 loaves in stock. Sales are now deducted from the 400 loaves & then ingredients stay static.

We have gone 1 step further. If the baker does not have time to enter the loaves baked in the morning, they can enter it later & then specify that the number of loaves sold for the day must be taken into account.

In other words, say they baked 400 loaves & at the time of entering the number under "Make Finished Product", they have already sold 50 of those loaves, 4POS will only update the ingredients of 350 loaves. This is obvious as the 50 loaves that were sold in the interim, has already updated the ingredient stock quantities....

The same process is applied by Buthers producing Wors (Sausage). You can make the wors upfront or allow the ingredients to be updated as you sell it.

Obviously doing the "Make finished Product" is betteer as that will show you ingredient stock & final finished product stock quantities.

For the same reason, you can also use this to take eg. Lamb chops, add marinade & call it something else Eg. BBQ Lamb Chops.

When making the item, Lamb Chops will be updated as well as that special sauce you make...

Use this concept & feature for ALL for specialty items!

Enjoy a great feature!
