DSM can, based on the sale of the product in a given period, calculate commodity planning details that can be used to calculate the item's re-ordering point and maximum inventory. This information can be calculated and updated automatically from previous sales figures if the item is associated with a scheduling profile code. This function can be run according to a fixed factor or a method that takes costs and stock interest (Wilson) into account when forming max stock.
It is important that the order form is filled in correctly, as the combination of choices provides different updating options. In this connection, it is possible to choose between having it updated immediately or getting entries in a special journal, where the result can be edited and then updated.
It is also possible to simulate an update by selecting a printout without updating. In DSM, in the overview panel "General", it is stated whether transfers should be included as sales figures.
