Re: MTO question

If you would like, I will see if I can mock up some code, but I've done something similar before by overriding the method that creates or adds to the RFQ.  Basically, I only allow addition to a line in an RFQ if it is in the same procurement group.  Otherwise a new RFQ is created.  Do you think that would work in your situation?

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
