Order Cycle


Order Cycle

Is your Order Cycle set correctly? Your order cycle determines how often the system tries to order. More frequent orders means you will carry less inventory but have higher order costs. Less frequent orders means you will have less order costs, but carry more inventory to meet your needs. 

Order Cycle Analysis

Click the 'Order Cycle Analysis' button on the 'Suggested Order Details' screen. The system will use some default values to test and determine the most economically advantageous order cycle. Adjust the values and recalculate the order cycle until you zero in on the one that is the most optimal. Note that bracket levels are not considered when calculating the order cycle. Make sure the numbers listed meet the bracket level requirements at the top. After you find the optimal order cycle make sure you click the 'Update Order Cycle' button and update your order cycle. 
Recalculate the order and see if new suggestion makes more sense.
