"DI": What Does it Mean?
Permalink   


Krogrr like the acronyms . . .  but not defining them.

What does "DI" mean? 

Context is in CAO, handheld, digging into why case after case of unwanted/unneeded/unordered product has been shipped to a department that did not order it.

It means "distribution". It is stuff that is shipped by the category buyers at the office.

Basically, the Office/GO has determined that your store could "sell" these items, or warehouse has overabundance and is shipping them to stores to eliminate possible outdated product at warehouse.

OK. Isn't "DB" distribution? (Maybe there is more than one flavour: DB, DI, and more?)

Thanks for the replies.

Actually isn't DI, Discontinued? I don't know the guns 100%, but thinking about it I kinda remember this now. Most likely if that is the correct meaning of the description, no one is able to sell it so, threes a lot to ship.

 This one is correct. The others are just guesses masked as knowledge.

When you get to the screen that shows the DI, press enter.  Sometimes the next screen will define the abbreviation.  I agree with DIstribution.

If you do Control O(letter), it will show Sugg:  0, Acc: 0, Rec: 1     DI

I want to know what ^ next to On Order means.  It started appearing randomly about a year ago.

That indicates a distribution of this item is in your future.  Press Cntrl + E  from that screen to learn how much and when.

---

This inquiry came about due to a department head asking for help in figuring out why orders were getting blown up with multiple unneeded cases.  Audit trail in ISP showed it was a co-manager adding two cases at a time, repeatedly on consecutive orders, across multiple items when CAO suggested ZERO cases and when zero were actually needed.  (Now, there is a U-boat piled three feet taller than the associate who works it with very heavy cases teetering above his head.)

Could "DI" mean direct input?  (I will try the Return suggestion above.  Thanks.)

I got it.

Data Integrity.  DI

Damage/Reclaim  DR

It is based on the old options when we changed the BOH on CAO.  We used to have 8 Options but it was cut down to 3 on last CAO update.

Whenever we change the BOH in Residual Scan, it automatically selects Data Integrity. 

I had to ask the guy that has been around for 45 years...

He was pleased to know about the CTRL E information.

 

F0 will show what BOH changes were made.  F9 will show who made them.  5 numbers means shipper.

This brings up a question I have had for a while:   Since the computer program that we access through the RF Scanner (Hand-held, or whatever you want to call it) seems to consist of MANY, MANY detailed functions and capabilities, as far as ordering, monitoring sales movement, doing markdowns, dept to dept inventory transfers, scanning out as loss/damage/donations, etc, doing inventory, checking BOH, etc, etc..............

WHY DOESN'T KROGER HAVE A GOOD, OVERALL MANUAL/ TUTORIAL PRINTED OUT AND SENT IN LARGE QUANTITIES TO ALL STORES SO ALL EMPLOYEES HAVE THE CHANCE TO "STUDY' IT AT THEIR LEISURE AND ACTUALLY LEARN THE BASIC FUNCTIONS WITHOUT RELYING ON A SLOW, DRAWN-OUT PROCESS (OVER SOME OR MANY YEARS) OF LEARNING TIDBITS OF INFO ON HOW DO VARIOUS THINGS ON THE HANDHELD??? 

One nicely printed booklet, neatly laid out, easy to read, with advice on all the major and minor functions that are possible.  Why is this not done?   It seems so logical!   It would help the company in the long run, as it could cut down on some of the time-consuming training hours, reducing innumerable mistakes that are made by those who are "teaching themselves by trial and error". 

Input, anyone????

lol.  Nah, that would make too much sense.

The night manager when I started said they handed him the Telzon without training and he had to figure it out himself by trial and error.  That was when they rolled out CAO.

There is a help screen under Function 1 I think.  Not very helpful.

I can answer most CAO questions with confidence.  Ask if there is anything specific you want to understand.

 That exists, actually. Seriously, when the last CAO rollout was done, I was given a printed copy of some sheets on CAO and handheld usage to share with my stockers (I'm a Night Manager). I think it's something you can grab through BarneyWeb. But honestly, it's not hard to figure out, but I do have a Computer degree so maybe it's easier for me to pick up on.
