One of the ideas of shortage on demand order is the ability to see if sales order pick will create conflicts on other sales orders.

This is what happens in the video

So in this scenario, we have all my sales orders with conflicts on it. I would know that when I start picking to each of them, it will create conflicts on other sales orders. So I need to prioritize my sales orders and be aware of that.

So if I run this instead including expected supplies and due dates, I would expect it to look much better.

Like this. So now I know that all the sales orders that are on stock could be delivered as for now without creating any conflicts, but the other ones I need to prioritize and I need to be aware that shipping to one of them will have influence on other so somebody needs to prioritize.
