I believe some of the capacities are larger then what actually fits has to due with how quickly an items anticipated sale rate is. Take BPG. Cap on somethings are 500 but we all know 500 will never fit but it keeps the item replenished because it would come out in every pull.

I've seen just the opposite happen when the capacity for an item is that high though. Nursery water for example. Capacity is consistently way higher than will ever fit on the floor (let's say cap is 100) and because in reality only 20 fit on the shelf but the presentation minimum is 50 since it's based off the capacity, the item will never pull. The system can't recognize the shelf is empty since selling 20 doesn't drop the item below the presentation minimum. There could be an entire pallet in the back and zero on the shelf until the capacity is adjusted to what actually fits. A capacity set at 20 would adjust the presentation minimum to 10 so if you sold 20 it would then pull at least 10 to fill the floor, 10 more if you also had it in the back.

I see capacities of 2,000 for endcap headers when only one is needed. Don't think we're selling thru many of those.
