Production Planning

Production planning begins with deciding what time frame to work in.  
The program is set to open showing tomorrow as both the "From" and "To" dates.  

After accepting or changing the From and  To dates, the user chooses one of the available options. 

The 'Plan Production' button. 

The production planner's job is to decide how much of each item to make.  In this example we need 73 box lunches.  We decide to make 75.  Choose the 'Calc Quantities' button and all the requirements are calculated.  In special cases, the use can override the retrieved ingredients and/or the calculated quantities.

Our database allows for three levels of production calculations.  The main level (products) consists of items, some of which may contain other items (for example, a recipe for a cake may include another recipe for icing).  

Our system is not dependent on all recipes having been input into the database before you can start working the system; productions can be entered here. 

When a recipe has not been input, it is immediately obvious.  The item is listed on screen, but all other fields are empty.  The operator can maintain the recipe by double clicking on the menu code.
