Computer Concepts for VTAE Food Service. Final Report.
Wisconsin Univ. - Stout, Menomonie. Center for Vocational, Technical and Adult Education.
A project was conducted to determine the computer application competencies needed by a graduate of Wisconsin Vocational Technical Adult Education (VTAE) food service programs. Surveys were conducted of food service graduates and their employers as well as of major companies by the food service coordinators of the VTAE districts in the state; a list of available computer software related to food service was compiled; and literature was reviewed. The top-ranked computer application competencies as revealed by employed graduates were financial information, inventory cost and control, customer count, and meal records. Employers of graduates ranked inventory cost and control, financial information, budget, and meal records highest of the competencies needed by VTAE food service graduates, while the major companies cited financial information, inventory food costs, input information, basics of computer systems, and how computers work as competencies graduates should have. A list of software related to the food service industry that is available for the Apple II computer was compiled and is available in this report. In addition, course outlines related to computer literacy and competency and a list of hardware were compiled and included in the project report. (KC)
