Order Quantity Change Tracking is an important tool when it comes to understanding why the quantity of product that is shipped or received is different from what was originally ordered. Understanding the cause of order quantity changes can lead to greater insight into an organization’s fulfillment capabilities. For example, indicating you short shipped a sales order due to not having enough inventory versus the customer adjusting their order to a lesser quantity can allow you to determine whether you need to increase production of certain items.
