Contract Release Orders
A customer fulfills a contract by issuing releases to the contract.

When you create a release order, the system checks whether:
If you have a contract with your customer and you create a sales order without referring to the contract, you can set the system so that it proposes the contract automatically. To do this, use the settings in Customizing for document type (Contract messages field)
In Customizing for value contracts, you can set a release order type for the release contract. In the R/3 standard system, WA is the release order type.
