JD Edwards EnterpriseOne EDI - Version 8.9 and later Information in this document applies to any platform.
EDI Inbound 856 processing is available within EnterpriseOne software.
In recent years, most large retailers have moved toward Quick Response (QR) and Just In Time (JIT) environments in order to reduce cycle times, limit inventory size and increase profitability. Purchasing and Receiving are the areas most commonly targeted as areas where automation can help achieve these goals. To assist in achieving these goals (and to be recognized as a trading partner by the retailer), suppliers have been asked to contribute to the automation process by providing Advance Ship Notice (EDI 856 Ship Notice/Manifest) EDI Transactions and by bar coding shipments using the UCC 128/EAN serialized shipping container labels. This combination of the Advance Ship Notice (ASN) and the serialized shipping container label is what is commonly known in the retail industry as UCC 128 Compliance.
An ASN is an EDI document sent by the supplier when goods are shipped. It tells the retailer exactly what was shipped as well as how it was shipped. This EDI transaction, when combined with a bar coded serialized shipping container label (applied by the supplier prior to shipment), can automate many aspects of the receipt process for the retailer. The shipping label is scanned (as the goods are received by the retailer), the labeled unit is automatically matched to the EDI 856 Ship Notice/Manifest and the appropriate internal transaction records are generated.
