EDI PAD Testing: Establishing transmission of Sales/Stock On Hand/Stock On Order information With Myer Suppliers
EDI PAD Testing (Sales/Stock On Hand/Stock On Order information) is required for suppliers who require transmission of data on a weekly basis – this data is also of benefit for use and creation of Reverse Purchase Orders option. The purpose of this test is to establish the EDI parameters which will create automatic transmission of data to the supplier each week.
This test is required for suppliers who require transmission of data on a weekly basis – this data is also of benefit for use and creation of Reverse Purchase Orders option.
The Supplier will advise of the required date of the first transmission of PAD (all active GTINs registered in the Myer system). Myer will set up transmission flags in the EDI system and the first transmission will commence on a weekly basis as notified.
Reverse Purchase Order Test
The purpose of this test is to ensure that suppliers can transmit Reverse Purchase Orders (in the agreed formats) and ensure that Myer systems can receive them. This test is required for suppliers who will be sending Reverse Purchase Orders. The Supplier will advise of the formats (“Replenishment and/or “Recommended”) and that test reverse purchase order/s will be transmitted. Myer will ensure that its EDI system is set to receive the test reverse purchase orders in the appropriate formats.
Myer will receive the test reverse purchase orders and validate that they are complete and accurate. Myer will send a functional acknowledgment to the Supplier. When this test is successfully completed, Myer will change a filter in the EDI system that will allow supplier’s “Replenishment” Reverse Purchase Orders to be sent to its production system, for the creation of open orders ready for the receipt of merchandise or in the case of “Recommended” orders they will be available to Buyers for review.
