order multiple


What is the use Order Multiple field In the Planning tab. At what conditions we use this field.

Could give some examples.


You stock the item in singles, the supplier suppliers them in pallets which are 100, your order multiple is therefore 100.

The reorder quantity is how many you order, but suppose the requirement is 150, if your reorder quantity is 100 it will tell you to order 150, but if your order multiple is 100 it tells you to order 200.

It is classed as an “order modifier” this means it can take your actual requirement and alter it based upon the specific settings of the item
