EDI and MRP

Thanks Patrick. I do not think I should request for a change in
functionality since every needs something else.

Regards,

Ronald van der Linden

Ron,

Depending on the standards you are using for 830's technically I believe an
830 can contain firm release, unfirm releases and even material commitments
only. Which the later would ideally translate into forecasts or even ear
marking material. I personally believe until someone we call evil like
Microsoft can mass market their BtoB Biztalk product and make it affordable
for us all to commonize on one translation type package it will still be in
the hands of custom programmers. I have also found out through working with
the American Automotive Supply chain that an 830 from Ford to a TIER 1
supplier is a 52 week build schedule, an 830 from a TIER 1 to a TIER 2 is a
24 to 36 week release, an 830 from TIER 2 to a TIER 3 is a 12 week release,
an 830 from a TIER 3 to me is a 4 week window / ship the first week type
shipping schedule. In other words 830s can be different things to different
people. By the way I still use EDI as an expensive FAX machine, rip & read.

Is anyone using the EDI module and the MRP module?

I expected that importing a 830 document would generate forecasts and
not sales order releases.
