Production Line Ingredients
With Kitchen selected in the product panel, select Maintenance > Kitchen Configuration > Production Assembly Line > Production Line Ingredients. Use the Production Line Ingredients function to configure the placement (row and column) of the ingredients to appear on the production assembly line screens in accordance with the layout of the 'hotel pans' on the make-line assembly line. The ingredients are then grouped in the Production Line Group function. You must know the layout of the hotel pans on your make-line.
You assign the row number, column number, and if the column spans across more than one for each ingredient. If you do not address a specific row or column, a blank spot appears on the screen; however, that may be your intent.
Keep in mind, you typically have more than one screen to accommodate your make-line so an ingredient can have the same row and column. For example, you can have Brown Rice in column one and row one that appears on the Hot screen and you can also have Lettuce in column one and row one that appears on the Cold screen. If two ingredients have the same row and column and you place them in the same production line group, the system uses the ingredient with the higher record ID.
Reference: Refer to the Production Assembly Line Feature Focus Guide - HKS1548 for more information.

Row number — Designates the row number in which the ingredient is to appear on the production assembly line screen, based on the physical layout of your store. We recommend using no row number higher than five, to ensure readability on the screen.

Column span — Indicates the number of columns the ingredient spans across in the production assembly line screen, based on the physical layout of your store. For example, if you type 1 in 'Column number' and 2 in 'Column Span,' the ingredient spans across columns one and two. The default is one column.
Pan shape — Indicates the shape of the 'hotel pan' that holds the ingredient. Select from the following choices.
Rectangle — Indicates the 'hotel pan' is a rectangular shape.
Circle — Indicates the 'hotel pan' is a circular shape. A circular pan shape can only span one row.
