    If the current demand is still not satisfied, the inventory arriving after the demand date will be considered.

    Optimize supply selection to maximize availability Select this option if you want to use the inventory that will be arriving on a date that is nearest to the demand date, that is, the inventory arriving on a date that is less than or equal to the demand date, will be considered first.
