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.
