Inventory planning parameters

A record should be entered in this table if you wish to calculate a safety stock and a reorder quantity for a buffer. The calculation can be done for raw materials, intermediate materials and/or end items.

Fields

Field Type Description
item non-empty string The item name for which safety stock and reorder quantity should be computed.
location non-empty string The location name for which safety stock and reorder quantity should be computed.
roq minimum quantity number Imposes a minimum constraint for the reorder quantity.
roq maximum quantity number Imposes a maximum constraint for the reorder quantity.
roq minimum period of cover number Imposes a constraint on the minimum period of demand (expressed in days) to be covered with the reorder quantity.
roq maximum period of cover number Imposes a constraint on the maximum period of demand (expressed in days) to be covered with the reorder quantity.
safety stock minimum period of cover number Imposes a constraint on the minimum period of demand (expressed in days) to be covered with the safety stock.
safety stock maximum period of cover number Imposes a constraint on the maximum period of demand (expressed in days) to be covered with the safety stock.
safety stock minimum quantity number Imposes a minimum constraint for the safety stock.
safety stock maximum quantity number Imposes a maximum constraint for the safety stock.
service level number This is the desired service level percentage for that buffer, E.g : 97.5
lead time deviation number The lead time standard deviation considered when calculating the safety stock, can be left empty.
demand deviation number The demand standard deviation considered when calculating the safety stock, can be left empty.
do not stock boolean
Indicates whether this buffer should be stocked. When set to true, a replenishment will only created when there is a demand.
Possible values are:
“TRUE”: Default reorder quantity of 1 and safety stock of 0 will be used.
“FALSE”: Reorder quantity and safety stock will be calculated.
push mode boolean
Indicates whether excess inventory should be pushed downstream to other locations in the network.
Possible values are:
“TRUE”: Push excess inventory downstream.
“FALSE”: Keep excess inventory at this item-location.
segment_* number

This values in these columns are not editible by the user. They represent the parameter values computed by the system based on the business rules.

When both a user-specified and computed value are provided for a parameter, the user-specified value overrides the segment value.
