Automatic Ordering Settings
Automatic orders in Quant are based on the principles of the Min/Max model. They support both fully automatic and semi-automatic modes. Automatic orders work with sales data which allows you to eliminate overstocks or understocks. At the same time, they are integrated with planograms, so they can also take into account spatial constraints. As a result, they are intelligent in that they do not exceed the limiting capacity of the shelf and prefer to increase the frequency of orders.
You must define for each store on which days it can order. Ordering days will be automatically generated from Quant.
The minimum and maximum values can be based on the setting of the number of days for which the supply should be sufficient in the store. The resulting Minimum and Maximum is then calculated from the sales data. You can also set fixed values for Minimum and Maximum. At the same time, each product which is placed in the planogram automatically takes over the Minimum and Maximum from the planogram.
For some products, we may encounter various logistical requirements. For example, some products are ordered only in packages of a certain quantity and some suppliers do not allow us to order less than a certain specified quantity.
An order type is a set of orders for which certain rules apply. For each order type, you can define which products or stores belong to it and when the order should be confirmed in the case of a semi-automated order. You can also specify how orders are to be grouped, including exports.
In this automatic task, you set when inventory levels are to be checked and when orders are to be created. Moreover, you set which products are to be included in automatic orders, from which period automatic orders should take into account sales data and other important settings.
