After kitting to a normal Work Order any quantities of items not issued are recorded in the Shortages file. There is no concept of shortages with Backflushed Work Orders. In addition, parts not included in Purchase Order Outwork Assembly issue to suppliers and Sales Order Exploded Kit dispatch to customers are also recorded as shortages.

When parts are received into stock and the Physical quantity is not negative, the Shortage file is checked, and the user notified with a message of the shortages outstanding.

In addition, any Sales Orders (not Quotations) for the part that are overdue are also drawn to the user’s attention with a message.
