I don't know the formula but you missing the MINS. That's an important number. Also you are missing the quantity sold in the last seven days or so. If we sell 300 jars of jelly in one day to one group, next week we will get a shipment for 300 jars of jelly.

You don't wanna figure out what CAO is doing. You want to make sure your numbers are right. If you have a gun and use it everyday you will see things change before your eyes. Our grocery and drug backstock are at all time lows because we use the gun everyday. If it's put on a cart we scan it in backstock mode.

Fcst   +  Min  - BOH   =  Fcst SKUs / Pack =  Cases Orders

  30   +  10    -   20     =    20    /   12   =   2

Always keep your allocation lower than what the shelf holds.

 

Give your self some space, or your backroom is going to get full.

I try to keep the allocation below a case.

 

So if the shelf holds 14 and a case is 12 I will set at 10.

 

This is for a slow moving item of course.

 

Also who cares what you sell in a week.  Press the blue button and 3 and see what you sell by day.  You only have to get to your next truck.

 

In my case every two days.

That will help you set your min as well.
