Restaurant POS Tablet-based POS Hospitality point of sale systems are computerized systems incorporating registers, computers and peripheral equipment, usually on a computer network to be used in restaurants, hair salons or hotels.
Like other point of sale systems, these systems keep track of sales, labor and payroll, and can generate records used in accounting and bookkeeping. They may be accessed remotely by restaurant corporate offices, troubleshooters and other authorized parties.
Point of sale systems have revolutionized the restaurant industry, particularly in the fast food sector. In the most recent technologies, registers are computers, sometimes with touch screens. The registers connect to a server, often referred to as a "store controller" or a "central control unit".
Printers and monitors are also found on the network. Additionally, remote servers can connect to store networks and monitor sales and other store data. Typical restaurant POS software is able to create and print guest checks, print orders to kitchens and bars for preparation, process credit cards and other payment cards, and run reports.
In addition, some systems implement wireless pagers and electronic signature-capture devices. In the fast food industry, displays may be at the front counter, or configured for drive-through or walk-through cashiering and order taking.
Front counter registers allow taking and serving orders at the same terminal, while drive-through registers allow orders to be taken at one or more drive-through windows, to be cashiered and served at another.
In addition to registers, drive-through and kitchen displays are used to view orders. Once orders appear they may be deleted or recalled by the touch interface or by bump bars. Drive-through systems are often enhanced by the use of drive-through wireless or headset intercoms.
The efficiency of such systems has decreased service times and increased efficiency of orders. Another innovation in technology for the restaurant industry is wireless POS. Many restaurants with high volume use wireless handheld POS to collect orders which are sent to a server.
The server sends required information to the kitchen in real time. Wireless systems consist of drive-through microphones and speakers often one speaker will serve both purposeswhich are wired to a "base station" or "center module.
Headsets may be an all-in-one headset or one connected to a belt pack. In hotels, POS software allows for transfer of meal charges from dining room to guest room with a button or two.
It may also need to be integrated with property management software. Newer, more sophisticated systems are getting away from the central database "file server" type system and going to what is called a "cluster database".
This eliminates any crashing or system downtime that can be associated with the back office file server. Tablet POS systems popular for retail solutions are now available for the restaurant industry.
Initially these systems were not sophisticated and many of the early systems did not support a remote printer in the kitchen.
Tablet systems today are being used in all types of restaurants including table service operations. Most tablet systems upload all information to the Internet so managers and owners can view reports from anywhere with a password and Internet connection.
Smartphone Internet access has made alerts and reports from the POS very accessible. Tablets have helped create the Mobile POS system, and Mobile POS applications also include payments, loyalty, online ordering, table side ordering by staff and table top ordering by customers.
With the proliferation of low-priced touchscreen tablet computers, more and more restaurants have implemented self-ordering through tablet POS placed permanently on every table.
Customers can browse through the menu on the tablet and place their orders which are then sent to the kitchen. Most restaurants that have iPad self-order menus include photos of the dishes so guests can easily choose what they want to order. This apparently improves service and saves manpower on the part of the restaurant.
However this depends on how intelligently the system has been programmed to be. As a case in point, some self-ordering systems not requiring staff assistance may not properly recognize a subsequent order from the same customer at a table.
As a result, the customer is left waiting and wondering why his second order of food and drink is not being served. Another example of how intelligent the system can be, is whether an order that has been placed but not yet been processed by the kitchen can be modified by the customer through the tablet POS.
For such an unprocessed order the customer should be given the option to easily retrieve his order and modify it on the tablet POS. But when his order is being processed this function should then be automatically disabled.Developed by the Consortium for Service Innovation, Knowledge-Centered Support (KCS) is a methodology and a set of processes and practices that leverage knowledge as a .

Notice that the forecast requirements are met with 11 A widgets, 9 B Widgets, and 7 C widgets.
This is classic batch production. In this example, the company forecasts that their orders will mostly be A, then B, and then C will probably have the least number of orders, which is why there are much fewer C production hours.
