By retaining human involvement in the order processing loop, several advantages can be realized:
- Order Editing: Waitstaff can make necessary edits to orders, such as when an item is sold out or if there appears to be a mistake.
- Order Cancellation: Orders can be cancelled promptly, preventing unnecessary consumption of time and resources in the kitchen.
- Age Verification: If legally required, age restrictions can be checked to ensure compliance.
- Order Verification: Staff can verify the authenticity of orders and, when applicable, ensure that payment has been completed.
Furthermore, maintaining orders in a pending state before they are transmitted to the kitchen enables effective management of kitchen workloads, ensuring smooth operations.
