Customer Reserved stock on sales order creation

0 Kudos

Hello experts

We have a business requirement to be able to reserve an agreed quantity of a material in stock for a nominated customer, such that when that customer places an order for the material it will always be available. The material is also purchased by other customers on an as and when basis. The reserved element of stock is not available to other customers.

When the customer for whom it is reserved places an order – the stock should be automatically confirmed for that sales order.

This will not be consignment stock.

Is there a way of doing this process in SAP without consignment processing?

In some systems this is called “Hard Allocation”. Allocation of the available stock to a entered sales order thus making this stock unavailable.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

as I understand, unless you are using IS-AD solution, customer stock is not available.

however you can do sales order stock or customer consignment stock...

Hi George Chen

with sales order stock .. is ther a way of allocating the stock from unrestricted stock .. i understand that you have to have the stock in a "special" area to move it to the sales order?

excuse my ignorance but what is IS-AD solution?
