In Kladana, you can set the flexible sale process by managing Committed and Awaiting stock levels. For instance, if your workflow is closely connected with customer orders.
Committed stock level is the number of items required for customer orders. It shows an actual demand and cannot exceed the ordered quantity of items, but it can be more than Оn hand stock level. When you know the committed quantity of items, you can order the lack of products from the supplier.
Awaiting stock level is the number of items that you’ve purchased but haven’t received yet. It shows the plan of inventory populating and you can take orders from customers even without items on hand.
When you know the Committed and Awaiting quantity of items, you can calculate Available stock quantity by the formula:
|Available = On hand — Committed + Awaiting|
For example, you have 25 sunglasses on hand. Your customer ordered 5 sunglasses and you’re waiting to receive 20 more. It means you have 40 sunglasses available and you can take customers orders for this quantity.
