Do It Best (DIB) stores can define a dollar value in a Break Pack Threshold $ field. Paladin will always pick the largest order multiple that will not exceed the Break Pack Threshold value. With this, our suggestion is to be quite conservative with the value chosen for your store. We suggest a value between $4.00 and $15.00 for initial tests. If you feel the order multiples used on your suggested order reports are too small, increase this supplier specific value to a higher number. If order multiples feel too large, reduce the Break Pack Threshold value.
To define a dollar value:
- In Paladin, from the main menu, select File > Setup.
- Select the Supplier tab.
- In the Suppliers pane, check EDI Supplier Services.
- In the Break Pack Threshold $ box, enter a dollar value.
- Click Save, and then click Close.
Understand these values are reviewed, calculated, and updated during the File Maintenance downloads and subsequent EDI processing of these files. It is also important to understand that DIB file maintenance records contain ONLY inventory items that have updated information to be shared with stores. The initial establishment of updated minimum order quantities may take some time before DIB updates most of your inventory. Should you change the recorded Break Pack Threshold $, this update starts over.
The most expedited pathway to update existing inventory data is to request and process a DIB all item maintenance file. Talk to Paladin Customer Service about helping you with this task.
