The Re-Index Product Forecast Quantities calculates a Reorder Quantity for all Active products (in each warehouse). This process analyzes the Forecast Formula against the product demand for each warehouse to determine the most accurate Reorder Quantity. It also takes Maximum Stock Quantities & Forecast Parameters into consideration. When changes are made to a products Maximum Stock Quantity or it's Forecast Formula, the Reorder Quantity is immediately updated (eliminating the need for a re-index). This re-indexing process runs automatically each night to evaluate all products and ensure they are up-to-date and have accurate Reorder Quantities.
Note: The re-indexing process occurs overnight on a weekly basis and in most circumstances should never be run manually. Manually running this process may take a considerable amount of time to complete.
