For this example: there is 1 operator who must run 4 cookers each day, each cooker using a separate recipe from a list of about 250–each with unique steps and ingredients.
The challenge: the operator needs to be able to view the work instructions for each of the 4 running recipes, so he/she can work on each simultaneously and enter data as he/she goes. Since there is only 1 operator, it wouldn’t make sense to run Tulip on 4 different devices.
The solution: The first step allows the operator to type in 4 different recipe ID’s (which are each loaded from a table), and when the operator presses ‘Enter,’ each recipe is displayed into 4 different columns on the next step. Each column has a ‘back’ and ‘next’ button, to flip between steps for that particular recipe. Data can either be entered at the bottom of each column if space permits, otherwise a third step page for data entry is easy to flip back and forth between.
