Hello Marc,
        You may wish to take a look at the options available on the IM
reports, Follow-up Shortage reports.
MAPICS APPID(IM) EESDS(EE) MNOP1(02) MNOP2(02) MNOP3(03)
This can be run for item, planner and some other selection options.
It does create a report which can be lengthy.
For those cases I found that report mining products work well.
We use Monarch or EZPICKINS from BCD Systems (great support). 
Feel free to contact me.

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.

Marc:

OTTO, a MAPICS "bolt on" from Systems Plus, does exactly what you want.
And you can run the shortage check for an entire sales order of just a
single sub-assembly.

Contact me off list for more details.  My contact information is below.
