Regular Sales order vth MTO scenario

Hai All,

My client belongs to manufacturing industry.

their order process is as follows:

customer place for RFQ (req for quotation , we ll consider it as Inquiry ), Client wont maintain any Inventory in Plants. Based on customer order, material will be transferred for production.

but in some cases, ( at the time of dispatch customer have an option to choose specific qtty to receive,where as production is already done.

eg: customer order- 2000 EA, prod-2000 EA, at the time of dispatch customer revise his order to 1500 EA,the same will be deliver to the customer. the remaining qtty will be stored in Inventory i.e.500 EA.

now when the other customer places order for the same material say, 1000 EA.

System has to deduct the inventory stock and for the rest has to go for production.

Can someone give me MTO document Flow, starting from sales order

my doubt is:

1) This can be done through MTO- will use the item cat group in Material master , by the item cat det'n system .

but how would the system consider the inventory stock also.

2) customer places req on last week of current month (for which he req's next month, its monthly req ) & at the same time he will place 2 more req's for next 2 months ( which is called "tentative schedules") ,but the production dept has to produce next month req completely & 80% of the tentative schedules.

How this will be addressed?

plz clarrify,
