33. What are the reasons for Back Order
The Pick release process includes 2 stpes
Pick Selection : This will find all the eligible orders which can be picked as per the release criteria(pick release rule) used. If the order does not satisfy the criteria, the the shipping transaction form will remain in the same status like, Next step as Pick Release.
Move Order Allocation: After the selection of orders, this will try to allocate the Move orders created. If selection criteria met but due to any reason, allocation of move order could not happen, the step will be back ordered.
Major reasons for back order are
      • Onhand not available
      • Any reservation against the available Qty
      • At the time of releasing source subinv and locators are Active or not
      • Inventory Periods
      • Item Status
      • Customer Ship To site status
      • If Lot controlled, check whether the Lot is Active or not also the expiration date is valid or not
      • Move order might be in Pending state

      • Internal Order required should be checked
      • Destination organization and Location needs to be created
      • As Internal SO will generate, so there should be a customer in the source OU with the destination location in its ship to
      • Choose the Order type in the Purchasing Options of the PO responsibility of the destination org. This order type ll be used in the Internal order

35. What is Drop Shipment and the setups
Ans: Drop Ship is business creates a PO to supplier for the standard customer demand order for which supplier will directly ship the goods to the customer and bill to the business company. And Business will logically receive the goods and close the standard SO and bill to the customer.
      • Line source type should be External, this can be defaulted from Item or order type.
      • Sourcing rule to be defined
