Buy compares the on-hand plus on-order inventory with the order- point and order-level and determines if a replenishment quantity is needed and -- when so -- the quantity to buy.  When promotions are included, the optimal buy with promotion is found.  When full bin and/or job quantity constraints are noted,  the buy quantities are adjusted to be compliant with the constraints.
Compare monitors month-to-date demands and current month forecasts and identifies the parts where the forecasts are not consistent with demands.  The parts that are out-of-line are rerun in Forecast-Replenish.
Returns  identifies all parts and locations with excess inventory and measures the excess for possible return to the supplier.
