Usually the reorder point triggers the procurement of material up to a defined 
level (fill-up) or a quantity to be determined by an MRP run.

So if the stock is slightly above reorder point and some goods are issed 
(medicine...) it falls below reorder and trigger a purchase.

If the stock was already below, the procurement process is running and the Doc 
may consume what is there - or not.

So the trick is to find the right amount of (average) day's supply for your 
reorder point. If you have a small procurement time (until the medicine is 
delivered) you can usually keep lower stock levels than with high procurement 
times/high consumption patterns.

Your usage figures should give you an indication
