MARGINS AND SALES CATEGORIES
The system has the ability to calculate recommended selling prices based on the production costs of the ingredients. The calculated cost can subsequently be over-ridden by either a general "Cost To Use" or one which is specific to a customer (typically used for a customer who earns an extra discount due to volume or a higher cost to cover increased delivery costs).
For any Product, the system holds a number of prices divided up by reference to the market - Retail, Wholesale, Weekly Orders, etc.. Products are further sub-divided by the type of Product such as Patisseries, Savories, Sandwiches, etc..
For each Product Type and Market Sector, a margin can be defined to convert the Recipe Cost (which is a simple sum of costs of the ingredients used) into a Calculated Selling Price. The margin is intended to cover indirect costs plus an element of profit.
For all features that use a Selling Cost, the cost used is based on selecting the Product Market then checks for a "Customer Price" or "General Price To Use". If no price is found under these categories, the "Calculated Selling Price" is used. Thus the system will calculate the majority of prices with the user amending prices by exception.
