Planned Reorder up to Maximum Inventory Level, not fixed Reorder Quantity
It doesn't seem useful in our business for Reorder Quantity to be a fixed number. Instead, the quantity on a PO should calculated to be whatever is necessary to get inventory up to a "Maximum Inventory Level". If Stock Level is less than Minimum Before Reorder, then purchase Maximum Inventory Level minus Stock Level.
For example for a product:
Minimum before reorder is 50
Maximum Inventory Level is 100
Available is 30
Low Stock Reorder should create a PO for a quantity of 70.
