- The way a traffic light book hawker decided which one of the book is the best seller, since he has to carry the best ones in his hands to sell
- The way the product line is decided and managed for the sellers at traffic signal. Santa caps on Christmas, Flags on Independence day and Republic day. Every time, year on year without fail.

The unsold stock is taken back smoothly and new product is pushed back to the market. and all this without a MS project, or Continuous replenishment system or even an ERP.
