Re last week’s meeting - amendments to simple orders & responses?


Without having the way forward yet analysed, an assumption on my behalf has been that we should try to carry over current functionality into messages based on new technology. Current Swedish Edifact-based implementation has a limited “change functionality” as follows:


a) the supplier may introduce certain changes to the order in his order response (that is, if the framework agreement allows so). The change handling capabilities of the order response message is limited to

- substitution of article for an equivalent one;

- change of date of delivery; and

- change of quantity to be delivered (including any back order quantity).

The tricky part with our response message is that an order line sometimes may be split into many response lines (i.e. if part shipments).


b) the buyer cannot amend or change the order.


Although I see the merits of “truly simple” messages I tend to position the border line for simplicity so that certain changes are made possible, by allowing for substitution of article and delivery date in the order response message while keeping a 1:1 relation between order and order response lines. Especially article substitution is common in an area like fresh food/vegetables.

But this is my personal view; we are ready to take a position on behalf of Swedish users.
