Defining fulfillment types

You must associate fulfillment types with sourcing and procurement rules.

Fulfillment types are used to define custom requirements that allow you to determine sourcing and procurement locations based on parameters that Sterling Order Management System Software does not provide logic for, such as, customers and order type. For example, you want to source or procure orders for a special promotion from a particular node. You can create a fulfillment type called Promotion that you can associate with a sourcing or procurement rule that sources from the node.

The sourcing rules for product sourcing and procurement must have the same fulfillment type for sourcing setup to work properly.
