Replenish to Minimum

Calculates the suggested order quantity based on the following formula:

(Backorders + Min SOH) - (SOH + Outstanding Purchase Orders)

Weighted and YTD Average

Calculates the suggested order quantity based on the following formula:

(MinQty * MaxMonthCover) - Available Stock - BomParent WHERE AvailableStock < MinLevel

MinQty = (Sales Avg1 + Sales Avg2) / 2

MinLevel = MinQty * MinMonthsCover

AvailStock = (SOH Qty + On Order Qty) - Backorder Qty

Once you have set your parameters select OK
