During replenishment planning, the system observes requirements according to the goods movements that have taken place in the stores affected. Sales are entered in the stores and posted as goods issues using POS inbound processing.
The system determines the replenishment requirement quantity and transfers this to the store order function. Once supply source determination has taken place, the store order function generates a procurement document according to the settings made.
Replenishment is a procedure for the demand-oriented merchandise supply of recipients (plants or external customers). When planning replenishment, the requirements are determined using the stock situation and then follow-on documents (for example, purchase requisitions, purchase orders, sales orders and outbound deliveries) are generated automatically for the merchandise supply.
Replenishment for customers is used within the framework of Vendor Managed Inventory (VMI) to carry out the requirements planning as a service.
Re-Order Point and Target Stock Settings
The lot size/order quantity in Replenishment is always calculated as the difference between the target stock and current stock for the simplified method and between the target stock and the expected stock for the standard method.
If the current stock is greater than the reorder point, a lot size is not calculated, or, in other words, replenishment is not triggered.
If a reorder point is not maintained for the material, the replenishment quantity is always taken as the difference between the target stock and the current/expected stock.
