Stock Cover Levels

Location

Location code that the stock cover applies to. This can be a specific location or a location group.

Location Name

Name of location.

Minimum Stock Cover

Once the number of weeks stock drops under this amount, the item must be reordered.

Maximum Stock Cover

The maximum number of weeks stock that is required. The system will not order more than this amount of stock.

Reorder Stock Cover

Once the number of weeks stock drops under this amount, the item may be reordered. This is used in conjunction with Minimum Stock Cover. At least one item must be below the minimum stock level. Once this occurs the system will then order any other items which are less than the reorder level. This is basically saying 'if I have to order some stock I, may as well reorder other items which aren't urgent but require reordering'.
