Reordering Rules

Setting up Reordering Rules ensures that your company stock is not depleted of the necessary goods. You can automatically restock the products if you create a new sales order or encounter an empty reserve.

Click on ‘Reordering Rules’ from the Configuration tab.

The window displays the data, including Product, Location, On Hand (quantity), Forecast, Preferred Route, Vendor, Min Quantity, Max Quantity, To Order, and UoM. In the Location field, indicate where you want the product to reach. ‘Min Quantity’ governs the minimum quantity of the item the stock must contain at all times. If this quantity dips below the assigned value, the system will send a purchase order to their suppliers to restock the depleted products.

You can add more fields to the existing preview by clicking on the button in the top right corner of the window.

Let us add ‘Multiple Quantity’ to this list. You will get a new field in the window.

‘Multiple Quantity’ indicates the lowest quantity of the items you can buy from its supplier/vendor. The system will round up the procurement quantity to the multiple you specify in this field. For example, if you give this value as 0, Odoo will use the exact amount.

You can adjust the trigger preferences, i.e., auto or manual, in the Replenishment window.
