Hi Gurus,

i was wondering whether there is a standard field or set of fields on the inbound delivery document to populate the specification information coming from the suppplier. the scenario is our supplier will be sending us the 856 - ASN. we aere buying steel from him. so he will send hte spec ifnromation also. like the carbon %, manganaese %, vanadium % etc etc, so is there a place to put all this infoirmation so that i can work with our van provider to provide this mapping and amake sure that when the EDI files comes over and updates SAP, it creates the inbound delivery and the devliery will contain this information and from there on it is the normal receiving process of goods via inbound delivery etc etc


Thanks

Hi Anusha,

I got your question now, and the answer is, yes, there are multiple fields available in the 856, which you can use for the vendor to convey the required information, it could be at the line level, as well as the header level, there are fields for buyer material no, vendor material number, dimensions etc.

You can make the mapping at the edi end to read the values at the decided field, and process further.

We extensively use 856, and have added innumerable fields to it, to meet our requirements.

yes the scneario that we are hoping to accomplish is the supplier sends the chemistry information on the ASN file so that all of this gets created in the form of inbound delivery and then everyday the user would run the inbound deliverires that are created look at the chemistry information and say if they are good so that our plant can say its good or not. They dont want to wait until the last minute where the product shows up at the plant and then find out that the chemistry informaiton is not in tolerance or not

Hi Anusha,

You would need to identify fields in the 856 EDI file which you receive from vendor, and identify the possible values that it can have, based on the chemical properties etc.

You can then modify the FM which processes the IDOC, to either fail the idoc and trigger a workflow, or process the idoc create the inbound delivery and also trigger a worklfow, if the chemical composition present in the defined field, is not as per norm.

You can also modify the FM to read the tolerance value in the idoc and put it in 51, if the tolerance is not in limit.

Thanks
