The BakeryCost Application allows a small bakery to monitor the cost on all their recipes(products). The
application includes a standard set of ingredients. The user has the ability to edit the included ingredients as well
as add new ones. First, the user enters or edits the quantity purchased in
ounces, pounds or each. Next the user enters the total cost of the
purchase. The app will use the information entered to calculate the cost
of all recipes which consume the ingredient. If the cost of the ingredient
changes in the future, the ingredient can be edited to reflect the new cost.
Then the cost of all recipes will be automatically updated. The ingredients
and recipes are permanently stored in a database on the iPhone. At any
time, the user is able to review the total cost of all recipes utilizing the
current cost of the ingredients in the system. By clicking on a recipeʼs
total cost, the user also has the ability to review the cost of all ingredients
utilized in the recipe. This tool will greatly enhance the speed at which
bakers can calculate where costs lie, and ultimately assist with
planning price and profit control.
Recipes can be printed on a printer that is Air Print enabled if iPhone 3G or greater is running IOS 4.2 or greater.
