What is manufacture and how to make a dish manufacture

If you’re preparing some amount of cooked dishes before they were ordered, use manufactures. This feature lets you check stock on the storage in prepared dishes and preparations instead of ingredients. It’s mostly used in bakeries, diners, and candy stores.    

Before manufacturing your first dish, set up manufacturing in the management console. To do this go to Settings → General and click Use manufacturing of dishes and preparations.

To make a dish manufacture:

  1. Go to Inventory → Manufactures in the management console. 

  2. Click Add.

  3. Enter date and time of the manufacture

  4. Choose storage where manufactured dishes will appear.

  5. In Product field choose dish or preparation from the drop-down list. 

  6. Enter the quantity of dishes for manufacturing. For example, 25 cakes.  

  7. Save your progress. 

After manufacturing of 25 cakes flour, sugar, eggs, chocolate, and cream were wasted from the storage. Now instead of ingredients, you have 25 cooked cakes on Kitchen storage. You can check the amount and sum of manufactured dishes in Inventory → Ingredients movements report.

💡 After manufacturing and selling cakes on the POS, all wastes will be in manufactured dishes instead of ingredients. Manufactured cakes wasted below zero in Storage → Stock means that you’ve sold more cakes than manufactured. Make a new manufacture so there won’t be negative stock on your storage. 

💡 Foodcost of manufactured dishes and preparations consist of the cost of the ingredients in stock at the moment of manufacturing. After manufacturing new dishes  with an average foodcost method it will be recounted.  


☝️ After first backdated manufacture, ingredients for its preparing will be recounted in cooked dishes. Next manufactures could be made backdated, for example, to cut off negative stock on the storage. 


To check stock of manufactured dishes and preparations on the storage, make an inventory check.
