Reorder Point

The reorder point (ROP) is the inventory level at which a replenishment order is placed (Point 8 in the figure).  As a rule, the reorder point is set at the leadtime demand plus safety stock.


There are a variety of other inventory control policies and variables including the use of order-up-to-levels (OUL), the level of inventory a replenishment quantity should yield when it is placed; review time periods (RTP), the fixed time between inventory reviews; and a wide mix of programs for joint item replenishment.
