    Wrong. If it’s the same street name it’s not a trace brake.

    It's not, it's just that UPS tries their best to make it way harder than it should be. Like forcing us to run a system that literally doesn't know left vs right (even though those things are established in EDD). How do they write a program that so often has you cross the street to deliver when its own trace brings you back down that same street where you could have delivered to the right? This is one of three main things that bug me most about Orion. The others is of course the digging/selecting all out of order and constant left turns.

    I’m pretty sure I’m usually within 95% everyday. I don’t follow my edd stop for stop either. You should have your dispatcher or manager explain how trace works. There’s a few posts on this thread that are absolutely not correct nformation.

    You are correct. Not every stop in the section of work that has my busy street is addressed the busy street. I have to go in and out of the cross street work of that street.

    Have I mentioned my center doesn’t even have Orion as an option? EDD. Every. Damn. Day.

    Not much more fun to set up impossible standards and then criticize employees for not following them.

    Simply not true
    You break trace by skipping the stops too

    Also was taught, NEVER plan to fail. Maybe UPS isn’t the place for me anymore.

    Orion is just something ups is selling to their share holders. If they tell me to follow it I'll just send messages all day. Do I run Orion and miss air savers and skip stops or do I run the route? Ask for instructions.

    A lot of people believed this to be true but this was explained to us in a recent PCM. The trace break only occurs on the way up your list. So you can skip ahead to do a section and its not a break until you return back up to a stop listed before that section. Instead of two breaks that people would assume it is.

    How is that possible when Orion rolled out over 6 years ago? How remote is your center?

    I’m actually in a pretty large city and a huge hub. From what I’m told, our area is just too vertical for ORION to ever work.

    Too vertical? What exactly do you mean?
