For some reason, HQ seems to feel that, since they were "forced" to raise the pay, that the computer shouldn't "do the work for you". Fairly sure this is part of why Check Dates doesn't exist anymore, too. You know, since the princely sum of $15/hr means that anything convenient should be eliminated.I don’t believe this. Autos are standard for many retail companies
Tell me about it. We're bare bones and I keep hearing ETLs and above talk about how we're still over payroll. Departments are starting the day with no opener, and people are getting called in on their days off just to fix this, which naturally puts us MORE over...Tell that to stationary/BTS.
You forget not every store has tons of payroll.
I know they’re different I was just saying I could see the current idea of autos going away and them switching to our autos dropping manual level replenishment instead. Not saying I agree with it but all these people saying that autos are going away so I was just hypothesizing how they would do it. I can’t see them getting rid of autos all together or nothing would ever get pulledThe computer doesn’t generate the same pulls and definitely doesn’t fill your floor as a manual does . However autofill wont go away since it’s tied to the trailer .
I think everyone here understands the difference. From what I’m reading, some stores are saying autos are going away and stores will have to pull manuals to get replenishment since it fills the floor more. I don’t believe it’s going to happen though unless they replace autos to drop the same level of replenishment as a manual but that’s still a stretch and would require tons of payroll and no way it’s getting done by noon. A 1-1 for every fillgroup would be thousands of items a dayTldr;
Manual caf differs from autofills.
Autofill has specific triggers that trigger replenishment. If the trigger for item A is 40%, and the capacity is 10, then you will not see the item drop in an autofill until the system thinks there are 4 or less on the shelf.
Manual cafs trigger all items in a fillgroup to be filled to capacity regardless of triggers, which is why they are larger.
Definitely depends on the store. Autos are percentage based off sales and expected sales while 1-1 pulls everything you sell. Large volume stores with extremely high traffic would pull a ton. I agree if you’re doing it everyday they won’t be as big but it would still be a lot more work and require a lot more payroll.Again consistency will be less and less . I’ve been on manual process for over a year and manuals are manageable where my pp1 pull and backstock all and finish their freight before 10 am.
Manuals will always be larger than autos by nature of how the logic is coded. Doing it more often will result in smaller batches because there is less item movement between batches.Bigger if it’s not consistent on it . Daily manuals will result in less and less .
