This program is a batch program that will calculate the re-order point for all items that have the Order point field set to YES in the Item file. Note: The re-order point will only be calculated for items with Item class set to 1 in the Item file, Inventory information panel.

The re-order point is calculated by the following formula:

Forecast * Planning time / No of workdays (defined in the DIS control file)

When running the Purchase suggestion routine, all items that are not under time axis control will be suggested for purchase with its EOQ (economical order quantity) only if:

in stock
+ purchase orders
– reservations
– security stock

is less than the ROP (re-order point).

If the difference between At disposal and ROP is greater than the EOQ, the difference is suggested for purchase.
