This is not a bug of Odoo. It is the way that procurements are connected with purchasing.

In order to fulfill your need, you need extra tools. What you may need is to decouple a bit more the procurement and purchasing, so that purchasing has some more flexibility in the decisions releated to how to purchase what is being asked.

We have many products defined with the MTO / Buy Route options.
And we use drop shipping.

An agent confirms a quotation for product 123 which is manufactured by supplier S1. 
Let's say we MAY want this delivered by April 30th in UK (or it may end up being May 30th, according to the customer)
The corresponding draft PO (RFQ) is generated but given the uncertainty of the delivery date we can not confirm the PO.

One hour later another quotation (this time for product 321) -which is also manufactured by S1- is confirmed. But this product needs to be delivered by May 15th in Germany
The system detects an open RFQ for S1 and adds the second product to it.

Which is not what we want since we need a separate RFQ to be created.

Are we missing something in the proper configuration of the purchase methodology? Any module anyone may be aware of to bypass this situation?

Thank you in advance
