Shortage on Sales Orders

Save time, reduce Work in Progress and reduce delivery costs

What is Shortage on Sales Orders?

With Abakion’s add-on Shortage on Sales Orders you can quickly see from a sales order which of the lines are in stock, or whether the orders can be picked completely or partially.

If the item can only be partially picked, you can delve all the way down in the item hierarchy and see what components are unavailable.

How does Shortage on Sales Orders work?

Shortage on Sales Orders is integrated into NAV, so when you open a sales order you can calculate the shortage status of all of the sales order lines at one time.

On the sales order line you also see whether the item is in stock and whether it can be picked in time before you start production.

In that way you can see which lines can be produced completely if you start a production order.
