Summary of Issue
We have one of our customer who is increasing its production and so we need to supply more parts to meet their production.
Our plant capacity can only fulfill 65%-75% of their demand, coming in 862/830 files, so we would be using contract
manufacturers (our supplier) to supply rest of the 25%-35%. What we are looking for is, RLM to split the demand quantity and
create one sales order line with type as internal for the quantity our plant is capable of shipping (65%-35%) and create one
sales order line with type as external (that would trigger to create a drop ship PO) for rest of 25%-30% which we would want
our supplier to ship to the our customer.

Q1: The requirement is to split the quantity coming from 830/862 through RLM between internally sourced and externally sourced lines.

Q2: How to setup one item as make and buy in it possible?
      (Sometimes the supplier is unable to meet the at that time we manufacture in house)
