    Is there any way to set reordering rules for multiple parts at one time? Like if I have 6 part numbers that need the same reordering rules, is there anyway to set all those in one action?
    • Anisha Bahukhandi (Moderator)
      Hello Alex,

      It is not possible by default in Odoo; however, you can mail us your query in detail at [email protected] to customize the same.

    How does the Lead time work with the reordering rules?

    E.g. If the lead time is set at 10 days in the re-order rule and the LT is set to 20 days in the Item Master page, does the re-order rule drive the RFQ to have a receipt date in 10 days instead of 20?

    • Anisha Bahukhandi (Moderator)
      Hello Cameron,

      There are two types of lead time in Reordering Rules;
      1) Days to get the Products( It means that you will get the product in the lead time you will mention here.
      2) Days to Purchase( It means that the PO will be created after the mentioned lead time of generating the RFQ. After that, you will get the product in the lead time mentioned for the vendor.
      However, the lead time in the Item Master page is the time mentioned in which the customer will receive the product(customer lead time).
      As per your query mentioned above, it will take lead time as 10 days(in case of days to purchase).

      Feel Free to ask your queries!

        Hi Anisha,

        a couple of questions: for both cases how the formula is afected? How is triggered the purchased order if:

        Qty on hand = 14

        min qty = 20

        max qty = 50

        Quantity multiple = 8

        Lead Time = 1

        • Anisha Bahukhandi (Moderator)
          Hello Stivens Bermudez,

          As per your query whenever a sale order is created then it will hit the criteria that Quantity on hand is less then minimum quantity. In this case, PO that will be created is the maximum quantity – Existing Product Quantity on Hand.
          The Purchase Order Quantity must be multiple of the mentioned reordering rule Multiple Quantity.
          In the example given by you, The quantity is 37 less then the maximum quantity(When sale order is done for 1 quantity); hence, nearby Quantity multiple is 40 which is 8*5=40. Hence,after one day(as per the lead time) of the sale order confirmation, reordering rule will proceed.
