Subject: [MAPICS-L] Shortage Checking with MRP

We are have been trying to check shortages prior to releasing MO and are 
looking for suggestions.

We have tried reviewing availability on the Order Release/Review screen by 
selecting sequence numbers then choosing option A.  This works but it is 
time consuming for our planners to review every item that is recommended.

We have tried running the "Check Item Availability Prior to Release" from 
menu AMMM40 (Order/Sechedule Release) but that includes all items, not 
just shortages and generates a 900+ page report.

Any suggestions on how we could stream line our shortage review prior to 
releasing MO?  We only want to cut MO's if we have enough material to 
complete the order to simplify our sequencing process, which currently 
requires an availability check.
