From Oracle Order Management Implementation Guide

"Often customers order products that you do not typically stock but that you do not manufacture either. You may want to purchase that item specifically for this order, have the supplier ship it to you, and then combine it with other items you may have purchased or stocked to create one shipment to the customer. This is a common scenario for Wholesale Distributors who use the S3, or Sell-Source-Ship business model as well as for other demand channels. We call this process back-to-back orders or procure-to-order."


This process is explained in detail in Oracle Order Management Implementation Guide, It can be found here for Release 12.1.3 -
