  • Calculate eligible Nutrient Content Claims

Recipe Maintenance

Recipe Maintenance

  • Explore “what-if” scenarios as margins or costs change

Labor and Overhead Costing

Labor and Overhead Costing
  • Divide each process step into Setup Time (which is constant for any size batch) and Assembly Time (which is proportional to batch size)
  • Assign one or more workers to perform each process step
  • Assign each worker to a Labor Class
  • Use the Labor Cost Calculator to assign a burdened labor cost to each Labor Class, including taxes, benefits, etc
