Replenishment with the Dynamic Threshold

How do I see the suggested reorder quantites? What is the dynamic threshold feature?

With the Dynamic Threshold feature, you can set the minimum and maximum stock covers for your products. This way, our application will notify you when a product reaches its minimum stock level and tell you how many units you need to order to reach its maximum stock level. These minimum and maximum quantities will be calculated based on the daily updated forecast values. (You can access the details of the Forecast algorithm here.)
For example, you can set the Minimum Stock Cover Days to 10 and the Maximum Stock Cover Days to 30. We will send you an email when the inventory of a product reaches 10 days of stock or less. We calculate the order quantity by subtracting the current inventory from 30 days of stock
This means that if the daily forecast for a product is 2, you will receive an email when the inventory level of this product is 10 * 2 = 20, and we calculate the reorder quantity as 30 * 2 = 60 minus the current inventory.

Do you have a lead time?

If you have a lead time for a product, you should consider lead times when setting minimum stock cover days. Our suggestion is to define minimum stock cover days as lead time + safety stock time. For example, if the total lead time is 14 days, you can add 6 days of safety stock time for that product, and you can set the minimum stock cover days to 20 days.

How often do you want to place orders?

When setting the maximum stock cover days, you can consider how often you want to place orders. For example, if you want to place orders once a month, you can calculate the maximum stock cover days by adding 30 days to the minimum stock cover days. Continuing from the example above, if the minimum stock cover days are 20, and you want to order monthly, you can set the maximum stock cover days to 20 + 30 = 50 days.
