Security stock / Reserved stock


I’m not sure what the proper term for this is, but within our company we wish to maintain a reserved stock for certain customers. For example if we have 10 pcs of item A in stock we could have an agreement with a customer to always have 3 pcs reserved for them . What we wish to accomplish is that all other customers can allocate the first 7 but not the last 3 pcs.

My initial suggestion to this was to use location codes. Create a new location code and use that for this customer. Is there another way that this could be solve. Any suggestions would be apprciated.

The separation of stock by location codes is the only real way to do this as standard, everything else is a modification. There have been several discussions on customer stock on the forum if you search for them.
