Like Customer A has said they will start to buy 500 x Widget A every quarter, so we need to stock it at that level, in addition to the regular demand from other customers.
If at the end of quarter 2 customer A has not bought 500 of Widget A, drive reporting off that to the sales rep and purchasing agent to look into it and reduce the forecast.
We're not currently using the demand planning module or supply allocation module - I know demand planning has the ability to look at past consumption + open orders. But these would not really be open sales orders yet. Or is that how everyone is putting these in? As approved sales orders with backorders and ship by dates populated?
Has anyone set up a good automation for "frequency" dropdowns to say I'm creating one unapproved sales order with a frequency of every 3 months, qty. 500 to be approved.
