Chapter 8 Checking out of Supermarkets
The traditional grocery store cannot be successful in the today's society, and there are several reasons why the method of handing a list of times succeeds in the past. Firstly, the population was very small, and people doing shopping at ago were manageable. The number of persons has substantially increased today such that people go to do shopping in supermarkets in large numbers. Using the manual method, therefore, cannot be effective. Secondly, in the past, there were no technological breakthroughs as compared to today. Currently, several systems that ensure efficient self-service in supermarkets have been developed, for instance, the surveillance camera that monitors what the customers do in shelves thereby eradicating theft despite a large number of people being served at ago in today’s supermarkets. As such, the use of traditional methods cannot be successful in today’s world. Finally, computers are currently considered to be more accurate in the processing of transactions hence discrediting manual methods such as the use of lists.
