QuickBooks has the ability to set and use a reorder point (ROP) for your inventory items!
SETTING THE ROP
The reorder point is simply a numeric field within any inventory part in QuickBooks - it appears toward the bottom of the item setup screen, as shown below (click the image to enlarge it):
Once you set a value in this field, it then works in conjunction with your inventory reorder report to help identify those inventory items that may be running low and need to be ordered.
NO REORDER POINT FOR NON-INVENTORY PARTS
Keep in mind - QuickBooks does not allow for a reorder point to be set for non-inventory items, service items, groups or other classifications. For assemblies, QuickBooks allows for the creation of a "build point" which works in a similar fashion to the reorder point for an inventory part.
