We are relatively new on Kinetic. We have safety stock levels set on our parts. My buyer is asking if there is any type of notification he can receive when a part’s on-hand quantity drops below the safety stock level.
I know I can run a report and filter it to where on hand qty is less than safety stock, but someone will have to remember to run the report.
Is there a built in trigger or an easily programmable trigger to flag a buyer when the inventory level goes below safety stock, so they can expedite / place PO’s?
Could write a BPM to send an email or do something. PO Suggestions covers this out of the box, just not notification.
The normal processing will put in on the buyers workbench with a suggestion. I use a row rule to color those red.
Depending on how rapidly the notice needs to be done you could put a standard data directive on PartTran that sent an email or do a scheduled function that sent an email nightly.

Thank you…no one had ever mentioned Global Alerts, and I had not seen them to test them.
I will try it out!
