While creating orders from the backend, we have the option to set parameters like 'Ship After Date' and 'Ship Before Date' to manage the fulfilment cycle more efficiently. Inventory gets reserved for the product based on a FIFO basis. Sometimes the fulfilment time for the order is high and inventory unnecessarily gets locked for some time period.
We can introduce a new parameter (at order item level) 'Reserve After Date' which will indicate the date only after which reservation can happen. In this way, we can manage the stock availability more efficiently.
