A follow up to a previous thread. If we all agree the PAS system has some major flaws what do we do to fix it.
The center team, drivers and IE must work together on PAS. Get the kids out of the office and google maps, have them ride a loop with all the drivers, prior to relooping. Then analyze deliveries and miles for duplicate miles, stops, etc. Prior to impelemenation, review with all of the above, and plan rides to correct problems. Do not allow IE to start another loop until the current loop is acceptable to the center team and loop drivers. The cost of redeployment is ridiculous. The IE group is responsible to do it right the first time. When it's screwed up due to deadlines, and they just slam and cram the loops - that's where the problems and attitudes come unglued. And then IE will call and ask to cut areas, to save money - so they can say PAS is working. PAS can work, it's no different of the old days of relooping a center, however, with PAS IE thinks they know it better than anyone who works in the center.A follow up to a previous thread.

Keep your preload employees happy, like paying them more than the minimun wage. Biggest thing about why this PAS system is malfunctioning is the constant turn over of part time employees, just when they got it down they are out the door to greener pastures. The start time itself should be compenstated on a higher level, differential shift pay would be a plus. You would not believe how much your seniority employees with at least 5 years in makes the system works the way corporate wants it to work. Never underestimate your senior employees (union) input, from the drivers to the preload there is a wealth of knowledge of what is wrong with the operation and how to fix it.
I can't figure out how some cars have shelves with NOTHING IN A SECTION.... yet the other shelves are blown out....
Want to fix PAS? Then start letting the people with real on-road experience in that center have some input instead of college interns in IE and a group of travelling supervisors who do not know the delivery areas.
