2. General settings

There are various aspects that can be set in Optiply in order to adjust Optiply to your purchasing strategy.

The next step is to set up Optiply. This includes setting the A/B/C categories, service levels, general settings and supplier settings:

  • A/B/C Categories
    Here you enter what percentage of your gross margin you want to classify in the A, B, or C category. For example, the higher you set the A category, the higher your stock value will be.
    For more information, see: ABC Category
  • Delivery reliability
    Enter the desired service level per category here. The higher you set your service level, the lower your no sales will be. A higher service level also ensures that your stock value will increase.
  • General settings
    Here you enter your percentage of inventory costs. You can also enter here whether you want back orders. Finally, you can turn no sales on or off. When you turn on no sales, Optiply will check on the basis of the forecast whether more needs to be ordered, as soon as there is a threat that you will sell no after this order.

  • Supplier Settings
    Finally, fill in your supplier settings.
