The Inventory Commitment preference enables a single Sales Order line to be automatically committed from a different branch than the header branch, or be committed across several branches. This will increase the chances that an order will be completely filled, and gives users greater flexibility to commit from locations that make sense in their business.
Businesses using the Inter-branch process usually enter Sales Orders in a Branch/Plant that is a sales office and may not carry any inventory. They use Inventory Commitment Preferences during the Sales Order Entry process to resolve the sourcing Branch/Plant. The intention is to ship the order from the sourced Branch/Plant. This is a common business model where many sales Branch/Plants source their orders from one or more distribution centers. The sourcing may take place from multiple Branch/Plants, based on the preference setup and availability at the sourced Branch/Plants.
Use the Sequence Number field to tell the system which Branch/Plant you want to try to pull inventory from first, second, and so on. When the Route Code, Mode of Transportation, and Carrier Number fields are populated, these values will be used to populate the Sales Order Detail (F4211) records. If using a Carrier (33) or Mode of Transport (34) Transportation preference for these values, the information populated in the Inventory Commitment preference will be ignored.
