How to Work with Productions

 The 'Production' function of the POS System enables businesses to effortlessly add finished goods stock to the system. This valuable feature ensures efficient management of both raw material and recipe stocks, as well as finished goods and inventory. By maintaining separate records for raw materials/recipes and finished goods/items, businesses can streamline their operations and enhance inventory control with ease.


In the 'Production' function, let's consider the example of preparing chicken fried rice using ingredients such as chicken, rice, and carrots. For each serving of fried rice, you require 100g of rice, 25g of chicken, and 10g of carrots. Once the preparation is complete, you can easily enter the quantity of fried rice packets you made based on the available stocks. Let's say you prepared 20 packets of fried rice; the 'Production' feature allows you to record this quantity accurately in the system. This way, you can efficiently manage your inventory and keep track of the usage of raw materials while ensuring your finished goods are well accounted for.


The "Production" function in the POS System offers several benefits to businesses:

  • Efficient Inventory Management: The function allows businesses to keep track of their raw material and recipe stocks separately from the finished goods inventory. This separation helps streamline operations and improves inventory control.
  • Simplified Stock Addition: With this function, adding finished goods stock to the system becomes effortless. It reduces the time and effort required to update inventory records, making the process more efficient.
  • Enhanced Production Planning: The function enables businesses to plan their production more effectively. Having visibility into both raw material and finished goods stock levels allows for better decision-making regarding production schedules and quantities.

To utilize the 'Production' function, follow these three steps:

  1.  Create Ingredient Products: Set up the individual items or ingredients that go into making your finished goods.
  2. Create Composite Products: Bundle these ingredients together to form the finished goods or products you sell.
  3. Enable Production Feature: Turn on the Production feature in the POS system to start managing your inventory efficiently.

After completing these steps, you can easily add finished goods stock to the system, keeping track of your raw materials, composite products, and overall inventory management.

  • Disassembling products helps keep an accurate record of the quantity and type of components available in the inventory. It ensures that each component is correctly accounted for and helps prevent stock discrepancies.

    • Ex:

      When a customer orders a burger, the POS system automatically deducts it from the burger inventory.
