Menu Maintenance
Deals with the creation, amendment, deletion and display of menus plus handling menus of subordinate units.
A "quick update" of numbers of servings of a recipe on a menu only is also provided, in addition to the full-blown menu amendment.
The final facility of this module provides menu reports on a selected range of menus, either in full detail, or description and price only, or a user-defined selection of data from menus.

Menu Cycle Maintenance
Menu Cycle Maintenance provides for the creation, amendment, deletion and display of menu cycles.
A menu cycle consists of a number of days and a start date, each day having from zero to thousands of menus entered each against a time (the hour and minute it is to be either served or prepared depending on requirement).
A facility for entering bank holidays is also provided in the module, where a "bank holiday" is a date on which the cycle is deemed to be empty for whatever reason.

Effect of Short Deliveries
This facility produces a listing of all menus affected by a short delivery of a purchase order, and the date on which they occur on the cycle.

Recipe Maintenance
Recipe Maintenance provides for the creation, amendment, deletion or display of recipes.
A recipe consists of a list of ingredients (stock items or sub-recipes) together with data on number of portions, costs/price bands, instructions for preparation, resources required, nutrition provided by a serving, etc.
This module also provides for the substitution of an ingredient for all recipes where it occurs.
A number of reports about recipes are also available.
