Over Ship and Over Receipt Functionality
Ability to set parameters that will allow Sales Order or Purchase Orders to be over shipped or received as long as it falls within acceptable parameters.

Agree with Paul.
Need the facility on receipt to 'Mark as Complete' even if under-shipped, and to allow over-receipt as well, within a defined value or percentage.
To support this more practically, a customer may order a Qty of 100 of a product. It may be produced as a batch and because of the nature of the process, the actual Qty produced will be 95 (or 105). Normal production or reording would believing outstanding demand still exists, while the demand has been met.
If over shipping as a result, the system should allow it.
When purchasing goods, a supplier may over or under deliver for similar reasons and the order should become Fully Received and not raise errors if actual receipt is more than the order amount.
Or consider them fulfilled with under delivery or shipment.
