Goal

How can you Over-Reserve so that users can reserve then ship the full lot quantity that is greater than the Sales Order Line quantity?

Workaround
Reserve order quantity but then ship the full, greater quantity.

* Why not update order? This is not the process.

What Tried
Have tolerances set to 500% but still cannot over-reserve.

Already have fix for <Bug 8582710> but did not help.
Bug Abstract: Not able to reserve lot with qty more than so line qty. Item is non lot divisible

Steps
1. Create Sale order with Qty 1
2. Navigate to Tools > Scheduling > Reservation Details
3. Change the quantity to 2 on the reservation.
4. Receive error: "Reservation quantity(2) can not be greater than available to reserve quantity(1) for Demand document"

Log File
See message in the inventory debug log file like the following where see no delivery found without staged reservation (No delivery detail found which is staged/shipped and doesnt have staged reservation). Also see lot is divisible (Lot divisible flag set to Y):

Business Impact
These are inter-plant orders for the Steel Industry. As an example, order quantity is 200 pieces but the factory may produce 300 pieces. Users want to over-reserve for 300 pieces and then ship the full 300 pieces.

Due to this issue, users cannot reserve more than the ordered quantity. Delays shipping orders. Common action in many orders to need option to change quantity.
