    Backorder Processing - Backorder processing is the processing of a backorder. Now, a backorder means a sales order which has not been confirmed in full or has not been confirmed at a certain delivery date.

    Rescheduling - Rescheduling on the other hand is a proposal which can enable confirmed quantities already assigned to sales orders might be reassigned to other orders. This reassignement may be required due to an order of higher priority which may require an earlier delivery date.

    Dear Krishna

    1) Backorder Processing

    Using backorder processing, you can list sales documents relevant for requirements for particular materials and confirm them manually. You can assign available-to-promise (ATP) stock to outstanding order quantities. In addition, you can withdraw already confirmed quantities and reassign them to different items. Backorder processing is only available for materials with individual requirements.

    2) Rescheduling

    When rescheduling is performed, the open sales document items in the item index for the material are processed. The items found by this process are sorted according to the criteria delivery priority, date, document number, and item number and forwarded to the availability check. The results are then saved.
