Configuring and managing bulk CI reorder level and lead time specification

The bulk CI reorder level and lead time specification configuration feature applies to the BMC Asset Management application and uses CIs in the BMC Incident Management and BMC Change Management applications.

This configuration feature is used to configure reorder information for bulk CIs. When using this configuration feature, you can specify at what level (or quantity) an item for the specified categorization combination should be reordered. For example, you might want to reorder printer cables when their quantity drops to 20. In addition, you can also specify the number of lead days needed to reorder that particular bulk CI. This information is used to prefill the Inventory Management form.

  1. From the Application Administration Console, click the Custom Configuration tab.
  2. From the Application Settings list, choose Asset Management > Advanced Options > Bulk CI Reorder Level and Lead Time Specification, and then click Open.
