    Question Importing

    Hi everyone

    with pastel as a processing basis of transactions, how would you manage reordering of stock? The stock is imported by the container loads with a 4 1/2 month turnaround time per container.

    Would I use a "Order up to level - Periodic Review" for ordering?

    I know that the container must be filled, and must at least have a turnaround time of 4 1/2 months, but how do I ensure the correct levels are ordered and I do not run out of stock.

    I really hope someone could help me with this dilemma of mine.

    thank you so much

    You will still need to set the reorder levels on the inventory master file.

    Pastel provides a inventory manage system. However its not a inventory decision making system. Basically the pastel reports can greatly assist you in making correct re-ordering decisions but its not a automated process.

    A few of the basic things to consider:
    1. How fast do these items sell and the level of client service that you want to provide based on delivery times.
    2. What is the cost of storing the items. Warehousing costs, insurance on the items in stock etc
    3. Do the items have an expiry date?
    4. The Reliability of the supplier on turnaround times.
