Function documentationDynamic Stock Prioritization Locate this document in the navigation structure


You can use dynamic stock prioritization to prioritize different stock types so that the stock with the highest priority is allocated first.


You can define the settings to prioritize different stock types in Customizing under   Logistics - General   SAP Fashion Management   Order Allocation Run (ARun)   Online ARun   Allocation   Maintain Rules for Allocation  .

For allocation against goods receipts, the system checks each stock type, matching the stock from the From days field to the To days field. If the value in the From field for a stock element is greater than the value in the To field, the system searches for stock in the backward direction, otherwise it searches in the forward direction, as indicated by the arrows on the Dynamic Stock Validity screen.


You can define an allocation window for a stock element. If the requirement date is within the window (starting on the current day, this stock can be allocated. If you do not enter a safety window for a stock type (From = 0, To = 0), the system ignores that stock type.

The following sales order has the delivery date November 19.
