This apart from the task of acting as a member of customer service desk and solving any customer complaints. Hand Held Terminal is used at Vishal megamart stores to directly scan and do the GRN for the products received. After receiving the goods the real play starts where an MBQ (Maximum Bin Quantity / Maximum display Quantity) is maintained which signifies the maximum quantity the store has to maintain of a particular product.

Any variation with the book stock is recorded. Physical Stock > Book Stock it creates a different kind of problem where excess stock is sent by the DC and it becomes difficult to manage it as it have to remain scattered all over the floor waiting for the stocks on the bay to get cleared.

There an upward revision is done. 3.On the part of consumer it helps him to receive products fresh in case of perishables leading to maintainability of high quality standards.2. There it is not advisable to change MBQ as it is more permanent in nature. Bakery products or products which are nearing expiry and are expected to become dump if proper step of reducing price is not done. On part of management it reduces cost of holding such perishable and fragile products as the store will receive from the vendor only products which are saleable and meet standards. highly perishable goods like ice-creams and also glass items which highly fragile in nature. This has to be done apart from Stock take which is done once a month or as and when asked by the management. In case of slow moving goods which the store manger feels is a drag on store performance and is just blocking space he can request for revising the MBQ to lower levels or removing it from the shelf altogether. 4.
