There was a shortage notification in QuickBooks Enterprise 14. But that has been taken a step further with the new QuickBooks Enterprise 15 version.

Now, when you try to build an assembly and you do not have sufficient quantities of the items, you will receive a warning screen.

It has changed in QuickBooks Enterprise 15, and a new selection has been added.


View Shortage Report.

The shortage report will display  the Quantity on hand, the numbers needed for this build, and the  number of items that are short.


One thing to note:

The shortage report does NOT take into account items on order from Purchase Orders, or items on Sales Orders, that have already been reserved.

This is one area that has a potential for problems, in that you are not seeing the true picture of where the inventory stands.
