Question What is your average frame size?

I was just talking with my glass rep and we were trying to figure out what my average frame size is. Thus I can best choose the best choice for buying lites in that size or close to it. I suppose the waste for glass is high for us and getting info, if you can do it from your POS would be a great help. I have FrameReady but I can't figure out the report, if there is one, that I could pull up would be. So any one have any ideas as to what the average frame size is of all you grumblers out there.
It makes for better buying decisions.

Not sure how you could use this information to buy better unless you are buying palettes of glass at a time.

We tracked ours for a full calendar year and what we came up with helped us to determine what sizes of glass were really worthwhile to carry. Not sure if it will help you but we found that x% of our total orders came from the size of lite below.

36% 18 x 24
22% 32 x 40
14% 24 x 26
12% 36 x 48/40x60
10% 16 x 20
4% 8 x 10
2% 22x28

We never carried 5x7, 11x14, 24x30. This data helped us to reduce the sizes of glass we carry to just 18x24, 24x36, 32x40 and bigger as needed and I feel has us operating better and more efficiently ever since.

It's not average size (although it would be slightly under 18x24 most likely, but it helped us focus better.

Good point Dave. I don't buy it by the pallet but it was just for info on sale items of glass and is it worth the odd size purchase.

Thanks for that info. It is helpful to not waste so much glass when you can pinpoint the most used size. It will help our buying habits and like you your bottom line.
