In the restock tool, within ‘restock by item,’ what does ‘overrides’ mean?
As a good practice, you should put in order cycle information for each one of your suppliers. This supplier data is tagged to each item in the ‘restock by item’ list. The ‘override’ button allows you to change the allocated days for restock cycle, safety period and/or lead-time at the item level if there is an exception. For example: Let’s say a supplier has a 15-day lead-time for all products. However, one, specific item has a defect and the lead-time has increased. You would want to go into the product at the item level and ‘override’ the 15 days setting to the new lead-time.nn
