Back orders (Sales orders) can either be sourced from stock or manufactured or purchased. This includes child items in the Bill of Material work order.

The back orders sourced from stock indicator reports on how many back orders were sourced directly from stock for a selected item. Sourcing orders from stock improves order turnaround times, at the cost of holding inventory. The alternative to ordering from stock is either manufacturing the part or purchasing it from a supplier. This will take longer. The importance of each depends on the item lead time and customer expectations. If the sales order  policy is to pick from stock,  then stock ordering should be more frequent to ensure the item is always in stock
