The steps you provided outline the concept of Magento 2 Multi-Source Inventory (MSI) for aggregating stock from multiple sources. Here's a review of each step:
Create sources and add them to stocks:
In this step, you create different sources. Once you create the sources, you associate them with specific stocks. Stocks act as a logical grouping of sources, allowing you to manage inventory and fulfill orders more efficiently.
Assign quantity to each source while creating a product:
When creating or editing a product in Magento 2, you have the ability to specify the quantity available for each source. This allows you to track and manage inventory at a granular level, ensuring accurate stock availability information across different sources.
Select the number of products you want to use from selected sources during shipment:
During the shipment process, you can select the specific sources from which the products should be fulfilled. This gives you the flexibility to choose the sources based on various factors such as proximity to the customer, stock availability, or other business rules. By selecting the desired sources, you can determine how many products to allocate from each source to fulfill the order.
