This raises a question that has interested me for some time: how does the system (software or whatever) correct for such a situation?
Does the system need a manual input to override or correct such a setting? And if so is there a policy/overwatch system in place to make such corrections on the thousands of disparate parts recorded in the system?
Or does the system itself (through some magical algorithm) self correct itself when a given parameter is exceeded?
This again reminds me of Target's failure in Canada which in very large measure came about because the software (which itself was very powerful) was not properly programmed (to an extent the requirement to incorporate bilingualism and the metric system to an existing product line proved difficult) and ended up causing major supply management failures as a result of which the customer base (which was very excited by the chain's entry into Canada) lost faith in the brand. Target ultimately decided it couldn't cure the problem and took a multi-billion dollar hit to extricate itself.
I connect regularly with people who are really good at getting billions of dollars worth of product from one part of the globe to another, with no problems at all.
It would be nice to see the CAF be able to get that right, starting with the same postal code.
