What is it doing?
Production events in MarketMan allow you to manage your batch productions and to follow the inventory depletion. You'll run production events on your Preparations and you can do this from your phone, computer, or tablet!
If you're part of a multi-location chain, you'll be doing this in the locations, and the reports in HQ will roll up the totals of all locations.
Why should I use it?
- Track the on hand levels of inventory items and preparations
Preparations get their own line on the reports, they're a house-made inventory item!
- Manage prep work in the kitchen - you can easily divide the work between employees, and even print out a prep list and recipes for the needed quantities.
- Get alerts when you're running low on a preparation (if you set min-on-hand for the preparation)
HOW TO - Step by Step
- Go to "Inventory" > "Production events"
Then click on "add" to add a new one, or click on any of the events on the list to edit an existing.
- Add a description - can be anything you want. Possible a name of the person who's going to prep it
Then you can search for a specific item, filter by category or storage area:
- Add qty for prep, just like in the inventory counts- make sure you're adding it to the correct unit!
Don't forget to hit "Save"!
- From here, you can click "Actions" > "Recipe" to get the exact measurements needed for preparing the needed quantity.
This means that even if your recipe is for a 5gal batch, in case you need only 2 gal batch, MarketMan will print out the exact recipe for you.
We can now easily print the production log with the raw ingredients we need and mark each line as produced once the preparation has been made!
HOW TO - On the app!
- Click "Production"
- Click on the big + add button to add a new production event
Or click any of the existing on the list to edit an existing one.
- Enter a description (best would be the maker's name)
and fill out how much you made of each batch.
Don't forget to hit "Save"!
