Integrating with EnterpriseOne

Integration with E1 is a significant task. Properly integrating files can be complex and difficult to tackle. For example, user exits, activity rules, or UDC scripts are frequently used when mapping to/from an intermediate, positional (“flat”) file or ODBC mapping. We work with the three components of reliable and economical EDI:

  1. The EnterpriseOne gateway
  2. Your existing EDI system
  3. Secure Internet data transmission (AS2 or FTPS)

E1 Development Pitfalls

  • Set up the document types and processing rules.
  • Set the address book to ensure all discrepancies to customer locations alert the master data administrator.
  • Accurately define the F47/Z files mapping requirements.

The greatest challenge is the Shipment Notice (ASN, 856 or DESADV), which does not come “out-of-the-box” with E1. Let a DCS EDI Specialists’ expertise assist you with this implementation.

A second challenge is the Planning Schedule with Release Capability (830, DELFOR). For this document the future “buckets” should be set to create “held” orders. This permits automatic alerts when a bucket quantity changes (this improvement requires use of the Demand Planning Module). There many other exciting ways to improve your processes and profitability from properly configuring document exchange.
