Topic:   report to show works order requirements

Hi, I am trying to work out how I can do a shortage report to get a list of works order which need raising, I am looking at the shortage report which shows all the components which we need to purchase from suppliers, but I can not work out how to see the works order requirements. when I look on the assemblies list you can sort for requirement but this does not show when there is a requirement due to minimum being exceeded - thanks and I look forward to hearing from you

I have now found the report for assemblies which are below minimum, however I still can not work out how to get a report showing what works orders need to be raised following a customer order being entered, is the only way by looking at the assemblies and sorting by requirements?

Go to the "all components screen in Inventory. Sort on the "Required" column, bringing the demand to the top. Click on the "i" that is next to the required column. It will show you all of the jobs that require the particular part.

Let's say, for argument's sake, that you build Wheelbarrows.

I you "think about" needing to build 10 wheelbarrows then of course there's no way MiniMRP can read your mind and show you the shortages.

But if a customer called and ordered 10 wheelbarrows and you created a customer order for 10 wheelbarrows and another customer called and ordered 5 wheelbarrows and you created the customer order for that also.

Then you go to the shortages report at:-

Reports>Shortages>Assemblies>allocated Shortages

You'd see you have a shortage of 15 wheelbarrows. of course if you had 2 already built in stock then the shortage would be 13.

But you don't have to use the shortage report. Just go to the menu and select
Assemblies>All Assemblies. this brings up a list of all of your assemblies. You'll see how many you have in stock. How many you need and how many you've already started building. There's a little blue (i) button next to the required qty and if you click that you can quickly get at the purchase order telling you Why/who wants them.
