BOM (Bill of Materials) is an add on feature that enables you to view and download multiple orders based on item ingredient quantity. To acquire this feature, you may contact our sales team.
In order to download this report, there are two very simple settings that need to be completed first:
- Creating a BOM
- Linking the BOM to the Product/Item
Step 1 - Creating a BOM
BOM settings can be set in Menu > Menu Name > Product > Bill of Materials
1. Click on 'Add BOM'.
2. Fill in the necessary details:
- Name: This could be the name of ingredients you want to measure such as flour, chocolate, chicken, fish or even just the item name itself
- Unit of measurement: What unit do you use to measure the volume, weight or quantity of the finished product? i.e. pieces, kilograms, grams, milliliters, liter, pounds
Step 2 - Link the BOM to the Product/Item
After setting up the BOM, you can now link it to your product/item.
1. Go to Menu > Product > Category > Item. Select the item that you want to measure, then click on BOM on the top right of the item name as shown in the screenshot below.
2. It will bring you to the page below, select on 'Add ingredients from list'.
3. Select the BOMs that you want to link to the Product/Item you have selected
4. Next, fill in the necessary quantity measurement of the ingredient for that item, then select 'Save'.
*For some menu items, you may wish to include options. However, bear in mind that the BOM of the options will NOT be included in the final BOM of the menu item.
In order to get around this, please take a look at this article.
