A customer gives us the go-ahead to procure material. he is willing to pay for the material in advance. however, we also use the corresponding components for other customers. how can we guarantee that the components procured for this specific customer are reserved and that these components are not mistakenly procured from stock for other customers (other shop orders)?

When the first Purchase Order is created for the customer material specifically, use manual pegging to peg the PO to the applicable shop order.  This will automatically reserve the material upon receipt and it won’t go to general inventory first.  Since it is pegged till received and reserved till issued, it will never appear as available to other orders.
