Auto PO Creation

Use this form to automatically create purchase orders based on the Supply/Demand concept (safety stock level, re-order point, re-order quantities and quantities on sales order/purchase order).



1.      Check the require checkboxes in order to calculate Qty to Order. E.g.


Qty to Order = Qty on SO – (Qty On Hand + Qty on PO)


This fulfills the Sales Order requirements.


Qty to Order = Safety Stock – (Qty On Hand + Qty on PO)


This fulfills the Safety Stock Level of warehouse.


Qty to Order = Qty on SO (Parent) – (Qty On Hand + Qty on PO)


This fulfills the SO for the End Product
