Abstract:

New food service system has been proposed to attain two objectives to increase andor maintain high levels of consumer attendance and acceptance, and to reduce costs. With respect to automated data processing equipment and services, a three-phase implementation plan is suggested. First, an automated headcount system and satellite performance reporting system would be made operational. Inventory and production control functions could be addressed in the second phase of the implementation plan. Quality control, long term forecasting, distribution and production scheduling are several aspects of the proposed information system which would be implemented in later phases as experience with prototype operations is accumulated and evaluated.
