The MyRecipeCostsMobile Application allows monitoring of the cost on all 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.
Whenever the total cost or quanitity of an ingredient changes the ingredient cost, quantity, measurement and changed date are written to
the data base in a historical ingredient table. These entries can be viewed and printed from the user interface. All recipes using the
ingredient are recosted and the new cost is written to a historical recipe cost table along with a description describing the ingredient cost or quantity change.
The recipe changes can viewed or printed via the user interface.
Then the cost of all recipes will be automatically updated. The ingredients
and recipes are permanently stored in a database on the Mac. 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. Anytime a recipe is changed, ingredients added, deleted or changed the new cost is written to a historical recipe cost table along with a description describing the change to 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.
