The Cost of Replenishment


The cost of replenishment is calculated on a per item, per order basis. This is because it takes the same amount of internal effort to determine how much of each item you want, from which supplier, at what pricing, terms, and so on, no matter which item is being considered and no matter how many items there are on any given purchase order.

Therefore, if the R Factor is $8.00 per item on each order, and there is a single item on an order, the replenishment cost is $0.00. If there are two items, the total is $16.00. If there are three items, it’s $24.00, etc.

To calculate your cost of replenishment, use this formula:

Total Annual Costs

Anticipating Needed Stock


Often the purchase of stock items may seem to require some sort of clairvoyance to know the quantities that customers will want. SIMMS Inventory Management software will enable users to set up blocks of time — known as stages — during which such transitive items can be bought in advance of the systematic ‘rushes’ that occur throughout a financial quarter or term. Analytical reports on usage and inventory turnover can help the pattern be spotted long before the rush comes.

“Anticipatory inventory” is stock that is stacked or held by a company to provide for unanticipated demands for a product that cannot be met by the production team. In other words, if the production unit suddenly goes on a strike, finished goods will not roll out of the factory. When this happens, business’ sales are likely to be effected. But proactive companies with anticipatory inventory would be able to supply during such crises and ensure that the sales do not suffer. Anticipatory inventory is only a temporary answer and can handle sales demands until the existing stock units are depleted.

SIMMS 2017: The Best Cloud-based Inventory Application



As inventory management moves into the future, a vast number of companies are moving in the direction of cloud computing. While use of cloud software shows a lowered expenditure and a quicker ROI, there are other advantages to its use.

The real-time inventory monitoring is a part of the efficiency to be gained from a cloud system. Changes in one place cause an update in numerous other places in the system. Greater access and accuracy lead to confidence in the system and reliance on its features. Tracking products and supplies then generating reports based on the results are the mark of a fluid system. Remote login to up-to-the-minute data at any time in any department in any branch anywhere is the strength. Versatility in terms of equipment used to access the data is also a benefit – Blackberries, smartphones, tablets, all are supported by quality cloud systems.

Inventory programs in cloud format also increase inter-departmental communications and increase speed and efficiency. Restocking quantities and frequency, shipment status of customer orders, support information and progress, overall operations, as well as current fiscal data are all advantages gained by a cloud experience. Profit margins and break-even points are equally accessible and available.

From small to medium-sized businesses, another advantage to online systems is their availability and affordability when compared to OOTB (out of the box) systems. Features you need can be added to the interface and tools can be customized and prioritized. Sophistication, the capacity to increase sales, the improvement of efficiency and accuracy are the marks of any good inventory system and SIMMS 2017 Inventory Management software provides all the features mentioned above.
