Setting the Part Reorder Point Calculation

The Part Reorder Point Calculation setting allows you to choose how the system determines when a part needs to be reordered. *Note: The feature below is only available to clients who have purchased Asset Essentials Enterprise. Please contact your Sales Representative or Client Services if you are interested in purchasing Asset Essentials Enterprise.

 

  • Click on the Admin menu icon, then select Configurations.
  • Select System Settings from the Misc section.
  • Click the Edit button.
  • Under the General section, set the Part reorder point calculation:
    • Below or equal to reorder point (industry standard) - This setting will trigger a reorder notification when the on hand quantity of a part is equal to or below the set reorder point. *Note: This is the default setting and is the industry standard for reorder notifications.
      • Include in calculation if Reorder Point = 0 - If this box is checked, parts with 0 on hand quantity will be displayed on the dashboard for reorder.  If it is left unchecked, parts with a quantity of 0 will not be flagged for reorder.
    • Below reorder point (legacy implementation) - This setting will trigger a reorder notification only when the on hand quantity of a part falls below the set reorder point. *Note: This is how the feature behaved prior to the part reorder method enhancement.
  • Click the Save button.

 

Setting the Part Negative Quantity Control

The Part Negative Quantity Control setting allows you to choose if a Part's quantity is able to drop below zero. You can apply this setting globally under the Admin Configurations or you can apply this setting to each individual site separately. *Note: This configuration can only be changed by a Global Administrator. For clients that do not have Asset Essentials Enterprise, please contact Dude Solutions Support to have this configuration changed in your account.
