This automation is fired every time a product is sold. It checks the inventory level. If the product runs out of stock after a pre-defined date, it sets the inventory policy to deny, preventing customers from buying this product further. This can also be adjusted to use the level of back-ordered quantities. 

This workflow is essential in controlling seasonal products that can only be back ordered up to a certain date. This is driven by certain stocking principles per stock, such as re-stocking deadlines and order processing time.
