Required (Purchasing UoM) in Item Master
What is u2018Required (Purchasing UoM)u2019 in the Planning tab of Item Master? What is the purpose of setting this value? There is a validation that this value must be between the MIn and Max value. Why?
Gordon Du replied
Economic order quantity is much more complicated than the Required quantity.
The former needs to consider the UoM, the price list, the leading time and so on.
On the other hand, the later will only give you a lowest and highest inventory level quota.
