Read this sentence I am writing in a document (software manual)
Software helps you generate the reports on shorts and overs.
The context: What actually I mean by 'Shorts' and 'Overs' is if the software, for example, is used by inventory department, it will get them the stock's status --whether it's short or over to some figure. Say if the total has to be 100, if the report says 80, it's short and if it's 110, it's over.
Is using shorts and overs like that make sense? Or I can have a better way to write it?
