Editing inventory levels and procurement time
Inventory levels and procurement time can be specified from different modules in the Parts Inventory.
1. From the submenu in the Inventory, Supply and Requisition Levels module
2. From the submenu in the Spares and consumables module
3. In the Spare parts and consumables module, when adding or editing a spare part or consumable in the Warehouses tab.

Minimum level: refers to the point where it is suggested to carry out a material replenishment again. Correctly defining this level is essential to avoid running out of stock.
Optimum level: it is at the level we want to reach when making a purchase. Stocks generally fluctuate between 0 and the optimal level.
Maximum level: It is the level which it is suggested never to exceed. This level can be defined many times by the cost of the spare part or by the space that is needed to store it, among others.
Procurement time: It is the time it takes for a spare part to arrive, from the moment a requisition is generated until it is received in our warehouse. To correctly establish this time we must consider the time it takes us internally as a company until the order is generated, the time it takes the supplier to send the product to us and the time perhaps the carrier, among others.
The procurement time is critical, since, if we elaborate a requisition after this time, it is likely that the point will come where we will run out of stock even after placing an order in advance.
