This particular tool is one you use on a weekly basis to help you forecast WHEN and HOW MUCH to order – it helps you track sales vs inventory and see if you need to order sooner or later or more or fewer units, dependent on the sales run rate.
If you have an inventory order in production or on-route then you have already taken the action you need. But you can check it to see if you ordered enough and by the right time, using this tool.
-For example, you can use current sales run-rate to see when you are forecast to go out of stock and align with check this with your expected delivery date. Then if you need to, or if you can, you can make changes to freight or orders.
