COMPANY INFORMATION SCREEN:
This screen contains changeable values that are used by the software.
These initial values may be adjusted to meet your particular needs.

Move the cursor to a field that you want changed. Make your
adjustments then press the key to exit the program.

An error message will be displayed if you made any changes that are
incompatible with the software. The message will tell you what needs
correcting.

Any changes you make will remain effective until you manually adjust
them.

Minimum Stock Level (Reorder Point) equals a 40_ Day supply of Stock:

This number of days is how long you expect the quantity of stock
in the "Reorder Point" to take to sell. This is used by the program
that changes the "Min/Max Stock Levels".


Maximum Stock Level equals a 70_ Day supply of stock:

This number of days is how long you expect the quantity of stock
in the "Maximum Stock Level" to take to sell. This is used by the
program that changes the "Min/Max Stock Levels".


Use Status Code in Purchase Orders es or o [N]:

This option is used when preparing purchase orders prior to a peak
selling season. It will bring all your best selling "A" items up to
their Maximum Stock levels regardless of their "Reorder Points". See
the "Order Code" information in the "Add/Change Inventory" program for
more information.


Status Code Sorting Criteria:
The "Status Code" represents a letter-code ranking of the current
sales dollars that the item produced. The letter code A, B, C, or Z is
placed in the Status Code when you run the "Sort Sales Data" program.

The initial setting of the sorting Break Points for each letter code
are:
"A" = Highest 80% of total sales, (Best Selling Items)
"B" = Sales from 80 to 95% of total (Average Sales)
"C" = Sales from 95 to 100% of total (Poor Sales)
"Z" = Zero sales for this period. (No Sales)

Generally, 20% of the items you stock make up 80% of your total sales.
These items are the Bread and Butter of your business. If your ratios
are different, then change these sorting levels to meet your needs.

NOTE: The break point for "A" must be less that "B"'s and the break
point for "B" must be less than "C"'s.

Smoothing Constant:
This is used by the program that changes the "Min/Max Stock Levels".
This number affects the limits that are imposed in the formula on
items that would have the most abrupt stock level changes. The lower
this number becomes, the more cautiously the stock levels change. As
this constant approaches 100, fewer restrictions are placed on the
boundaries.

LOWEST ALLOWABLE STOCK LEVELS
This is used by the program that changes the "Min/Max Stock Levels".
Defining the lowest allowable stock levels on low or no-sale items can
be done manually or by letting the program set default values for your
stock levels.

To set your stock levels manually and restrain the program from
changing your settings, enter a "N" in the Update field in the
"Add/Change Inventory" program screen.

Items that do not have enough sales activity to generate a valid
predictable stock level will default to:
Max Stock Level = One Case Quantity
Min Reorder Point = Percentage of Case Quantity

The Status Code assigned to the item being evaluated determines what
the percentage of the Case Quantity will be. Initial settings are:
"A" = 33%, "B" = 17%, "C" = 0%, "Z" = 0%


For example, for an "A" item the percentage is 33. If the item has a
case quantity of 6, the default stock levels would be:
2 / 6 (Min Reorder Point/Max Stock Level).

  1. Very nice! Thank you for this wonderful archive. I wonder why I found it only now. Long live the BBS file archives!

  2. This is so awesome! 😀 I’d be cool if you could download an entire archive of this at once, though.

  3. But one thing that puzzles me is the “mtswslnkmcjklsdlsbdmMICROSOFT” string. There is an article about it here. It is definitely worth a read: http://www.os2museum.com/wp/mtswslnk/
