How do I run a projection for several months to see how much I would need to order from a vendor who's lead time is inconsistent.
When you run your projection you have the option to change the number of turns you want to project for that vendor. Turns are the number of times you would turn over the product in a year. Reducing this number will increase the number of weeks the system projects for you to purchase. For instance, reducing the turns to 2 would project for 6 months worth of inventory. You can use this information to make decisions on how much inventory to purchase when your lead time is undetermined.
