Ability to consider the unsegmented inventory also as a secondary option to fulfill orders or demands for custom segment types.

When doing inventory allocation based on segmentation, OMS should consider the unsegmented inventory also as a secondary option to fulfill orders or demands for custom segment types. This feature currently exists in v10. But is needed for v9.5 for a client who is going live soon and not planning to upgrade to V10.

How will this idea be used?

Segments can be defined to capture reservations against individual channels to allocate inventory in these segments. When the inventory across these segments are exhausted the unsegmented inventory pool can be tapped for fulfillment instead of rejecting/ backordering the orders.
