Due in Date from Purchase Orders

Posted by Stock Position, Uncategorised • January 18th, 2016

If you run an accurate purchase order system and you keep expected delivery dates up to date then when an item is out of stock a due in date can be displayed. This date can by ‘slugged’ by a fixed number of days to allow for late delivery, unpacking and other factors which make the shipping date different from the delivery date.

The due in date can also be done in a bespoke manner such as using supplier lead time where there is no extant purchase order.
