Minimum Order Quantity

The reorder low stock to min level is great but it would be good if at the inventory level (or ideally supplier for inventory item level) we can set a minimum purchase order quantity. This would be useful for a number of reasons.

1. To avoid reordering a very small quantity of a product to get up to minimum level.

2. To utitilse available bin location space. I.e we know a bin location can hold 50 units and we have a reorder of 10 units. The stock item is low value so we choose to set a minimum purchase quantity of 40 units so that the reorder low stock functionality would prompt us to order a quantity that would fill the available bin space.

3. Supplier has a minimum order quantity for a product.

4. Supplier has favourable pricing when x quantity is ordered.
