Hey Mark,  others...

  Any thoughts about checking component availability to move and firm
  planned order, in order to level load, at or around CMLT,  we would like
  to check component availability , but include current peg to demand (from
  MRP's planned orders) , and replenishment order as well (planned) for the
  components...

  I believe OBPM looks at just onhand - hand alloc (open  MOs).   This works
  well for release checking, but what about moving a planned order in a few
  days, or week, to level load, and firm it.  We'd like to check component
  shortages out 10 - 12 weeks....??  We may be slightly inside CMLT.

  Any advise would be welcome

  thanks

  Jeff Snyder,  CPIM

    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.
