It is possible to set up a blanket order for this supplier/customer with maximum limits. Only create Purchase Orders from this this blanket order. If you exceed the quantity, you will be warned because the Order is "full".

You could setup separate items for each vendor where the max limit would be setup on the item master to generate the warning. On the product structures you would setup the item from your primary vendor and then setup your back up vendor items as substitutes. Note this will drive an actual variance if a substitute is used. You also lose the ability to track purchase variances across the item as it becomes vendor specific. This is discouraging if it does not matter which vendors item you use in production and your savings are through managing inventory effectively with the cheaper vendor. We had to do this when the cost of an item we used had a very high price difference between vendors. We now have a variance we review of these items exclusively when they are used as substitutes. In our situation the customer can demand we use a specific brand causing the substitute to be used. Outside of an enhancement request or Raymond's response I am stumped otherwise.

You could also use supplier scheduled orders. You set up an MRP% to distribute supply percentages between suppliers. See the user guide or training guide for more information: http://documentlibrary.qad.com/documents/2370665/2370823/SupplierSchedules_TG_v2014SE.pdf
