How the replenishment re-order point is calculated

This is about how the re-order point is calculated in the Inventory Stock Item on the Replenishment tab. This is shown in Inventory > Processing > Replenishment > Calculate Replenishment Parameters and then applied to Inventory > Processing > Replenishment > Apply Replenishment Parameters.

It uses the following formula:

Average Daily Sales Demand * Average Vendor Lead Time.

In the example below the inventory item has the replenishment analysing the last 3 months of data, this is how MYOB Advanced would calculate the following scenario of 3 sales orders delivered and 3 purchase orders receipted over the course of March, April, May when performing the replenishment on June 1.
