Hi,

I have been working with Mapics for some years now and we have encountered 
these problems
also.  Now for us it is not a major problme but in your case with the computer 
parts I can see
the problem.

There is always a solution with the API or User exits at the time you create a 
pick list.  I
alos wonder how you create your pick list.  There is an option (F22) in there 
that can be used
to change the mode for printing and creating an pick list.  We always use the 
stock pick that
only prints and creates a pick list when the is enough available stock.

What could also be an option is to use Kits in COM which in his turn would be a 
product
containing all the components and if there is not enough stock of one component 
no pick list
is made.

I hope this helps a bit.
