Just-in-time c. Prime vendor d. Blanket agreement b. Just-in-time Answer (b) is the correct answer because just-in-time purchasing is a cost accounting strategy where the minimum amount of goods is purchased to meet customer demand, and acknowledges the kitchen renovation requiring a reduced inventory. Answer (a) is not the correct answer because cost-plus pricing is a cost-based method for setting the prices of goods and services. Using this approach, the direct material cost, direct labor cost, and overhead costs for a product are summed and added to a markup percentage, to create a profit margin, in order to derive the price of the product. This does not address the need in the reduction of inventory. Answer (c) is not the correct answer because prime vendor is the supplier that provides the materials or products, not the process in which the reduction in inventory can be addressed. Answer (d) is not the correct answer because a blanket agreement is a simplified method of filling anticipated repetitive needs for supplies or services by establishing charge accounts with qualified sources of supply. This does not address the need for reduced inventory. An employee accidentally sprays a chemical cleaning agent on exposed skin. What source of information should be the first point of reference? a.

How much turkey roll should the foodservice supervisor purchase to yield 21 lb of cooked turkey meat? a. 14 b. 31 c. 32 d. 35 c. 32 % yield = edible portion of food ÷ as purchased portion of food % yield = 0.66 ÷ 1 To determine how much turkey the foodservice supervisor should purchase to yield 21 lb of cooked turkey meat: 21 ÷ 0.66 = 31.8 ≈ 32 lb of turkey meat Answer (a) is not the correct answer because purchasing 14 lb of meat will not yield 21 lb since % yield is 0.66 (it would yield closer to 9 lb of meat).
