    Hi Madhuri

    You have defined Quota Arrangement for a particular product, after taking the Planning Run, system will create equal ( say 20 for Total demand of 100) Distribution Receipt Planned at each Supplier (A,B,C,D,E).

    For Deployment, you put Distribution Receipt Confirmed as (A - 0 and B - 40). Now you run Deployment with setting - Real Time Deployment.

    In this case, while taking deployment run, system will try to take the stock from A. After realizing that A does not have stock, it will fulfill the demand from Supplier with Surplus stock (eg: B in our case).

    Please note that in case other Suppliers also have surplus stock, and there is no Supplier selection criteria (i.e. all conditions are same at all suppliers), system may fulfill deficit demand from any supplier.

    Hope this answers your query.
