A quantity contract is an agreement that your customer will order a certain quantity of a product from you during a specified period. The contract contains basic quantity and price information but no schedule of specific delivery dates and quantities.(If the customer provides delivery information, you can create a scheduling agreement instead).

The customer fulfills a contract by placing sales orders against it. These sales orders are known as release orders (or call-offs).

You can specify in the contract which other partners in addition to the sold-to party are authorized to release against the contract. For further information, see Authorized Partners for Release Orders.

When you create a release order, you refer to the relevant contract, and the system automatically updates the released quantities in the contract. Otherwise, processing a release order is just like processing a standard sales order.
