What you’ll need to know about inventory replenishment software.

Also known as stock replenishment, inventory replenishment is the process of replacing the inventory that has been sold.

The five most-used methods are: manual replenishment, reorder point replenishment, automatic replenishment, demand-driven replenishment, and continuous replenishment. 

Manual replenishment uses a human workforce to monitor inventory levels.

Reorder point replenishment sets a reorder point for each product, and automatically places an order when inventory drops below that level.

Automatic replenishment uses software to monitor inventory levels and place orders when inventory runs low.

Demand-driven replenishment uses sales data and forecasting to determine the optimal inventory and places orders based on this data.

Continuous replenishment is a collaborative operation between supplier and retailer; the supplier monitors retailer inventory and automatically replenishes if it drops below a certain level.

Manhattan Replenishment and Manhattan Demand Forecasting are seamlessly unified into a cohesive single solution, offering a streamlined user experience and leveraging a single, integrated data store.

Replenishment is used to optimize long-lifecycle merchandise by either purchasing more (from outside vendors) or redistributing inventory across the network.

Allocation is used to optimize short-lifecycle merchandise by determining where in the network it would produce the greatest return on investment.

Single Echelon, Multi-Echelon, Flow Through Distribution, and Cross Dock.

Replenishment works best with merchandise that is carried year over year— meaning items that can be replenished many times throughout a selling season.
