3) P4210. Create a Current Sales Order for a quantity of 10 to soft commit all of the inventory.
4) P41202. Check Item Availability for the components and notice that there's no Availability for the Items, since the order allocated and committed all quantities.
5) P4210. Create a Future Order for a quantity of 15. To do this set BP constants Commitment days so the order is future committed then reset to it is now within the window.
6) R42995. Set processing options to process Future Commits only and run over the order.
