Message D05A/DELFOR

Delivery schedule message

WARNING! This version of the DELFOR is not upward compatible with versions prior to D02A. DELFOR is a message which is sent from a party who is planning the use or consumption of products to a party who has to plan for the supply of the products. The message gives the requirements regarding details for short term delivery and/or medium to long scheduling for products. The scheduling can be used to authorize manufacturing and or the provision of materials. This is based on the terms and conditions defined in a purchase order or contract. The message may also be sent in response by a party which has received a DELFOR message to indicate to the party which has issued the message, the acceptance of, rejection of, or to propose amendments to the previous message.
