What does ORION look like?

    My center has yet to adopt ORION and curiosity has gotten the best of me as to what exactly it looks like as far as the DIAD goes. Regardless of all the ORION threads I've read on here and management people I've asked, I still cannot visualize it.

    As far as I can understand, is it essentially just an EDD that constantly updates the order of the stops? Are there additional interfaces it adds in the DIAD? Does it map your route like a GPS and tell you exactly where to turn for a stop? Anything you can tell me would be great.

    It's just EDD in a different order.
    That is all.

    It looks exactly the same. It does not update thoughout the day. It creates one "solution" when you get Edd in the morning and does not adjust for time, ocas, or changes throughout your day. The only thing youll see different on the diad screen is on the bottome right corner it say ODO and has an option to turn it off and display the normal delivery order.

    They do put up computer screens and you can pull up your Orion route on a map.
    Only about 3 guys from the whole center looks at it, No One Else Cares

    Oh to be a fly on the wall when that Einstein came up with the idea to call this crap Orion. They should have fired that guy.

    No its mapped in am . Just like edd would be .as the computer thinks best way to run rte . Biggest waste of money .doesnt factor in pickups or airs either . But some rtes actually have lunch hr factored in . Which is good

    If you follow it, you may save 2 dollars in gas.
    But you'll blow those savings within 5 minutes of your extra overtime.
    Yet UPS spent 10's of millions on it.
    Pointless don't come close.

    My EDD is already in a pretty good order as far as mileage goes but I have so many pickups that I have to stop for at a certain time that I could never run it in exact order. I always end up having to come back for residentials. Did they really not think this kind of thing through when they implemented it?

    Somepeoplecallmethestig Are you not amused?

    Wait until you get Orion and it tells you that 87 piece bulk stop as your 76th stop and to just work around it until then. It is great.

    Then you have all the left hand turns you now need to make.

    Then don't forget to start backing into the driveways all the time.

    And then the last of the great hits, yes do cross that street with the 50mph speed limit and heavy traffic, it is the Orion way, safety last.
