Make-to-Order is the Supply Chain Configuration Strategy which uses unique, identifiable t:SOs to drive all decision and execution processes. In practice this means stock is assigned to orders early on in the supply chain: at receipt of product in Source-To-Order process or in the Make-To-Order Make process. For inventory transactions both the item number and the Sales Order/reference are recorded*.
The Customer Order Decoupling Point is a determining factor in identification of Make-to-Order and its variations listed as use cases.
*) Serial-, lot- or batch numbers may also need to be recorded for some use cases.Community Importance Rating:
