K3S gives you the ability to find the optimal cycle for your suppliers.
The advantage to using optimal order cycles is that it will lower your annual net cost and improve the accuracy of the K3S suggested orders.
Navigate to Order Cycle Analysis for your supplier.

Here you will see the current order cycle and 5 columns that you can use to compare different order cycles. If the day column appears in red, it means that each order will not meet your bracket level constraint.
It will also display the current bracket level constraint on the top.
The best fit button will calculate the order cycle that will bring the lowest annual net cost while meeting the bracket level constraint.
Don’t forget to update the cycle by clicking the current cycle and the check mark. It will give you a date stamp which tells K3S to remind you to review this supplier in 6 months.
