Set up rules and parameters for cross docking and buyer's push

This procedure demonstrates the steps to create Replenishment rules. Replenishment rules can be used to control how products are distributed to stores when using Cross-docking and Buyer´s push. Replenishment rules can be set up for stores or store groups. The weight defined for each line in a rule will control how the quantities of products will get distributed between the stores when using Replenishment rules as the distribution method in Cross-docking or Buyer´s push. This procedure uses the USRT demo company.
