The Release Management System (RMS) application provides a way to process EDI release/JIT to drive MRP through Order Entry and Forecasting.
The RMS application is used in conjunction with the ECM609 ECM adapter (ECA). EDI data is mapped to the ECM609 transaction files. The ECM data is then loaded into the RMS files by the RMS process to create RMS contracts.
Upon converting RMS contracts, new orders are generated for new contracts, order lines are added to existing orders for existing contracts and forecasts are generated in MRP100.
Each customer requires different mapping and configuration depending on the type of EDI data sent and whether the customer uses cumulative quantities.
