Production sheets display all of the food item totals on a menu for a specific day and meal. The production sheet reflects all of the food items printed on the tray tickets. The printout is categorized by production job type (cold foods, hot foods, etc.) for the day selected. The totals are listed by food item with portion sizes, consistencies, and item/category note breakdowns. One of the primary uses of the production sheets is to enable the kitchen staff to prepare the meals for the day specified.
If the Production sheets are printed right after the tray tickets, the dates should already be set for that date.
If you are printing for any other day, ensure to leave the box that says "Update Selections" checked to include any changes made to the menu or resident profiles.
