'Scaling' - not a new term but just a reminder. Buffet Menu scaling is functionality that establishes a ratio between the 'planned quantity' at menu level and the 'planned quantity' of buffet recipes. Once the ratio has been established, the buffet recipes' 'planned quantity' values will be increased or decreased in relation to increases or decreases in the menu's 'planned quantity'.
