Material Request logic

Let’s say I have item WIDGET where I normally keep 50 in stock.

The reorder LEVEL is 40 and the reorder QUANTITY is 10.

This means I am consistently trying to keep around 50 in stock.

BUT, let’s say someone buys 40 WIDGETs in 1 day leaving me with only 10 (which is 30 less than my reorder level). The next day a Material Request will fire but ONLY for 10 more WIDGETs which is the reorder quantity.

This is wrong – I feel like it should request a total quantity that gets me back up to my Reorder Level plus the reorder quantity. So in this case, a 40 WIDGET Material Request should be created. Is there a way to change or implement this behavior (hosted version)?
