Joe Ely has popped up on his blog with an interesting post about a potential pull system for stocking soda machines with the right mix for the customers in a given location. Joe points out that prediction is unnecessary if you react with a PDCA-type pull system.

    Mark, thanks for the link.

    I am really interested if anyone has ever seen this in action…it seems to me it is a simple opportunity to fine-tune the humble pop machine to maximize revenue for a particular population.

    Next time you see a vending machine guy ask him about how he stocks it. Most make these same stocking decisions during thier route while refilling. I don’t think it’s a formalized system though.

    It should be I always buy up all the ‘bit-o-honey’s’ I can. I can’t talk him into a double row.
