Right now, corporations auto-order new supplies if their existing supplies reach a point where they only suffice for one month'.

For the corps that use products with a delivery time of a month or longer (weapon systems, plutonium) this gives them a problem. Unless the ceo-president manually orders for these corps or has contracts in place these corps are guaranteed to run out of supplies regularly, regarless of market shortages.

To end this, corps should be able to advance their auto ordering to 3 months or more before running out. This could be complicated, and if it's too complicated to implement as a matter of choice, it could possibly be implemented for the whole game, making supply shortages more rare all over.

One other thing that caused market problems in the past might have to be fixed however, to make this possible/more efficient: (if it isn't fixed already, the dev team is really doing a great job these days with all the new implementations :D)

I'm talking about the following; corporations used to repeat ordering of supplies after a month, if they had not been met due to underpricing or market shortages. This caused a great enlargement of ordered stocks, and sometimes greatly enlarged the market shortage at hand. This reordering with the old orders left in place might have to be moderated/stopped for a more stable market.
