If you’re going to be in kitchen for a while i would start with your normal pull the first day, make sure you’re updating SFQ and capacities especially for any items you pull and need to backstock so they don’t pull again when you don’t actually need it. The days you have time I would start dropping manuals/pull the OOS for your department and if you keep up with it, your autos in the morning will start getting smaller until it only pulls what you actually need like critical lows and outs. That’s really the only advice I can give about any department that will definitely make your life easier with pulls and pushing. Do it right the first time and your life will get so much easierI’m stuck as a general merch in kitchen and the batch I have to pull for autos is home. What are some tips to speed up the process to go faster on auto pulls and pushing them.
Damn they used to make us do that for high end keurigs and such but now they tell us not to bother. Weird.
how many aisles do you have for home and how many for plug?? we have one own the whole area and he barely gets it done on time and he's a beast at working...jesus-- so one owns home and one owns plug I guess?ASANTS; We have 2 DBOs. One in Small Appliances, who owns the push for small appliances and the 1-for-1 pulls in PLUG. We also have a DBO in Kitchen, who sorts and stocks the SSZ4 repacks and pulls the 1-for-1s in HOME (which also includes decorative home items). Are you doing both areas, or is your store similar in how it breaks up the workload between two DBOs? Our Kitchen DBO doesn't typically push any small appliances (so they don't spider wrap anything either). But, they do push a lot of small items. As @GS4lyfe mentioned, EXF as you push will manage your counts, and maintain the size of your 1-for-1 pull batch. Adjusting capacities to be accurate, not over-pushing and making sure on-floor counts are right before backstocking, while prevent unnecessary items coming out in the pull. You might need to reprofile your backroom aisle to better accommodate all your small items (more open space wacos). This will limit the amount of full cases being pulled for 1-2 items.
Work your d-code out early. Keep your endcaps full (this will keep a lot of items out of the back). Zone. Adhere to your routines and you should be fine. Some truck days, our Kitchen DBO has about 10 repacks and some days it could be 30... if you don't partner with a lead and let them know you might be rolling freight... you will be seen as an ineffective TM. Keep leads in the know, especially when you need help.
ah thats weird we got from 22 to I believe 35 so like 13 aisles I guess.It's about 10 for each counting back walls.
