I hear it mentioned often. Im not a driver but am wondering what its all about
ORION Demonstration On YouTube.
EDD on crack.
Something you should understand.
Picture driving around in circles bypassing stops all day long, all while making a ton of extra money
It is a POS computer program UPS created that is supposed to put the deliveries in the most efficient order according to the mileage you have to drive. The problem is it doesn't account for things like business closures, traffic (like school gets out at 3, kids everywhere!) and reality in general. Lets say you have a next day air to deliver in the morning.
ORion will want you to deliver all the ground stops nearby in between air stops, it is just not realistic you will end up with late air or you will end up in the middle of you business's at 12-1 when many are at lunch so you end up wasting more time. Not only that but the ORION order for delivery is not how the preloader loads the truck, so it has you digging all over the truck to find stops. As for projected mileage, drivers are some how able to beat it by 20 or 30 miles.
Super dumb system but UPS must make it work or the stock will take a massive hit. UPS wants to sell ORION program to other companies in the future too so they need to make it seem like they didn't waste millions on a broken computer program.
Good description ... Weak opinions
Probably get called into the office tomorrow.
Probably because you made had a sup make a bunch of changes to the order, so really it's not orion order it is a customized order. Why couldn't ORION figure out that last 8%??
It did but I didn't agree with that part of the solution so I optimized it.
So ORION didn't put it in the best order
I only understand ED (erectile dysfunction)
Just focus on getting the correct packages in the PCs.
Yes sir. Could i get you anything else?
its all about saving gas money, miles and wear and tear on vehicles, to hell with wear and tear on the employees.
It's ma'am....and No thanks....I'm just a lowly PTer like yourself.
Well that explains it. Carry on
Please explain this???
Orion is a great game to play.... if you want to get your work done, shut it off...
