Test
your understanding of the Store Level calculation rules by going through the
different scenarios below. Try to determine how many cartons the Store Level
system would send in each example. Answers are given at the bottom of
the screen. 1) Cigarette A has a build to of 20 cartons. The store manager transmits a quantity of 5 cartons on hand. How many cartons will the Store Level system ship? 2) Cigarette B is a top 20 product and has a build to of 30 cartons. The store manager forgets to scan the item. How many cartons will the Store Level system ship? 3) Cigarette C is a non top 20 product with a build to of 5 cartons. The store manager scans 0 for this week. How many cartons will the Store Level system ship? 4) Cigarette D is a non top 20 product with a build to of 1 carton. The store manager has scanned a 0 two weeks in a row. How many cartons will the Store Level system ship? 5) Cigarette E is a non top 20 product with a build to of 1 carton. The store manager forgets to scan the product. How many cartons will the Store Level system ship? Answers1) 15 cartons Whether the product is a top 20 seller or not, if we receive an on hand greater than 0 we will subtract the on hand from the order point to determine how many cartons to ship 20 - 5 = 15 2) 33 cartons Remember that for top 20 products we will send the build to plus bump by 10% whether the manager scans a zero or they do not scan at all. 30 + 10%(30) = 33 3) 5 cartons Remember that we will only send the build to number of cartons the first week a zero is scanned on a non top 20 product. 4) 2 cartons When a non top 20 product has a zero sent two weeks in a row, then we will send the build to plus bump by 10%. Note that even though 10% of 1 carton is 0.10 cartons, the bump will always round up to at least 1 carton. 5) 0 cartons Remember we will not ship a non top 20 product if it is not scanned. |
