EDI 862 Shipping Schedule Basic Data Contents
The Shipping Schedule Transaction Set will supersede certain shipping and delivery information transmitted in a previous Planning Schedule Transaction, but it does not replace the 830 transaction set. The Shipping Schedule Transaction Set (862) shall not be used to authorize labor, materials, or other resources. The use of this transaction set will facilitate the practice of Just-In-Time (JIT) manufacturing by providing the customer with a mechanism to issue precise shipping schedules requirements on a more frequent basis than the issuance of a Planning Schedule Transaction. (e.g. , daily shipping schedules versus weekly planning schedules).
The Shipping Schedule Transaction also provides the ability for a customer location to issue shipping requirements independent of other customer locations when planning schedule transactions are issued by a consolidated scheduling organization.

The 830 Planning Schedule document works together with the Shipping Schedule Transaction to support Just-in-Time manufacturing. The forecast data provided in an 830 helps the supplier manage materials and other resources. This ensures the appropriate on-hand inventory of an item is available when the supplier receives an 862 from its customer with instructions to ship that item. The instruction to ship an item can change, particularly in a real-time manufacturing environment. The 862 Shipping Schedule accommodates this, as it can be used to provide changes to previous 862 instructions. Such changes may include: Decrease in order quantity; Increase in order quantity; Change in ship date.
