Enter the gross requirements (units) and the stock in hand at the end of the previous period (units) into the Net Requirements Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Net Requirements.

## Net Requirements Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Net Requirements.

**NR = GR – SIH**

Variables:

- NR is the Net Requirements (units)
- GR is the gross requirements (units)
- SIH is the stock in hand at the end of the previous period (units)

## How to Calculate Net Requirements?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Net Requirements.

- First, determine the gross requirements (units).
- Next, determine the stock in hand at the end of the previous period (units).
- Next, gather the formula from above = NR = GR – SIH.
- Finally, calculate the Net Requirements.
- After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

**Example Problem : **

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

gross requirements (units) = 500

stock in hand at the end of the previous period (units) = 300

NR = GR – SIH** **= ?
