Formula Information


The Formula Information screen will present itself to the Terminal operator if they choose to view it while batching, or at the end of a batch if a batch signoff is required. This page will cover the basics of how this screen works.

Screen Overview

The formula information screen can be access by operators (if they have the appropriate permissions) by hitting the ‘Formula’ button across the bottom of the formula step screen at any stage of the production process.


After this, the operator will see a screen that looks something like this:


From here the operator can view the formula steps involved in the current batch as well as a live view of their progress with the current batch. Completed steps are indicated by the green traffic light.

Any additional formula information, such as specific instructions or allergen information, will be shown above the steps if applicable. This is not present in the example above but could look something like this:


Operators are also able to reopen previous steps if desired.


The operator is able to customise the look of this screen by selecting which columns they are viewing.  The position of these columns can also be changed by dragging and dropping them as required.
