    We're on Windows, Applications 9.0/MSP2, Environment 9.0.0.4 and MSCM 9.0.0.11 (upgraded to 9.0.0.12 in test only).

    We used to only do par counting for inventory. However, we've recently begun also doing cycle counting for our central sterile and operating room inventories.

    My question is how have others handled the restriction of Minimum Orders placed by vendors, when your requisitions are getting generated "automatically" through the cycle counting process? Thank you.

    Minimum order requirements are the vendor's way of making it worth their while to employ customer service reps.  Many vendors will forgo any min order requirements if you place the order electronically (web site, EDI, etc.).  We try to use EDI as much as possible.  We've saved a few thousand dollars with J&J by going to EDI.  If we can't order electronically some buyers will leave a PO unreleased until the order fulfills the requirement then release it.  If the order is next day or overnight then we just bite the bullet.

    Can anyone tell me if Lawson has the capability to enter a minimum order requirement for a vendor. For example, if a user of Lawson enters an order, does Lawson have a message box to prevent the order unless it meets the minimum order requirement of say $500?
