This workflow fires when a product is updated. It then does a quick check to see if the inventory changed when the product got updated. If it did, it will trigger a subworkflow that creates an array of product variants. It will initially set a default value for a database storage field "reorder" to "FALSE". Then by default, it will detect when the inventory levels go above or below 12 (or what ever you set it to). If it is above 12, then you don't need to reorder, so it sets the database storage value to FALSE. If it falls below 12, then it sends a warning email to yourself about which variant needs to be reordered and how much inventory it has currently. Lastly, it will set the database storage value to TRUE, so it will not run more than once.
