For my pennys worth, would it be sensible to make a Sales Order mark it 
as 'reserved' and then reduced on Despatch (we should be able to create 
a Despatch Note to go separately with goods, as well as an Invoice?)

We have quite long lead times usually, though sometimes we can get a 
rapid turn round order and it would be useful to know what we ACTUALLY 
have in stock and how much of that is RESERVED.

We can often turn the order round with stock that is reserved on the 
basis we can get more stock for the earlier order in time to fulfil 
their requirements.

If that makes any sense !!!
