Kitchen Schemes

A kitchen scheme is a set of configuration specifications for each kitchen station. Typically, a unique kitchen scheme is defined for each day part and/or for High Volume and Low Volume business hours.

For example, a High Volume kitchen scheme includes all four kitchen stations in the site while the Low Volume kitchen scheme only includes two kitchen stations.

When the XKM application starts, the most recent kitchen scheme is reloaded.

To create a kitchen scheme, see Create a Kitchen Scheme.

    The "Claim" and "Complete" indicators are used when kitchen staff members claim or assign order items to themselves for preparation.

    "Claimed" and "Completed" items are tagged and color coded to distinguish the items from other items on the ticket, and identify the kitchen display where the items were claimed/completed.

    Claim Color

    Select the desired color code for a “claimed” order item.

    Claim Check Color

    Select the desired color code for the check mark that is used to indicate a “completed” order item.

    Forecaster Tags

    From the dropdown, select forecaster tags to associate with the kitchen station.

    Use forecaster tags to filter the order items that are displayed on the Production Forecast Pane.

    For example, if the “Burgers” tag is selected, then only order items that have been assigned the “Burgers” tag are displayed on the Production Forecast Pane.

  3. In the lower-right of the Add Station form, select Done.
