We are operating with a Point of Sale Interface.
We create Recipes and use the Outlet Requisition process to move a finished recipe to the selling outlet and then from the selling outlet the finished recipe is depleted once daily from pos sales.
we currently have not turned-on stock validation.
Cafe Kitchen produces the Panini and Cafe Restaurant Sells
so outlet requisition created manually when Kitchen issues to Restaurant, this is subsequently posted to update Restaurant Panini Stock and deplete the raw ingredients as detailed in the recipe from Kitchen.
there are occasions unfortunately where the sales take place without sufficient inventory existing in the restaurant. In this instance it is observed that the system creates its own Panini to satisfy the sale, and this throws off on hand when the posting catches up.
i would like to turn on stock validation but it creates more problems given how few items we have running in this format.
are there any other suggestions>
as it relates to the reason we do a system outlet requisition, as opposed to using the preparing outlet feature for stock depletion from Kitchen, we find it necessary to physically issue to restaurant for accountability.
second question. how should we treat items that are prepared in kitchen but not dispatched to the restaurant. the oultets have included them in a month end count however that seems to not deplete any raw ingredients. Furthermore if stock is on hand for kitchen, and an outlet requisition is created the ingredients do not appear to deplete for the quantities which were on hand from the kitchen stemming from the opening inventory/count adjustment.
