893 Item Information Request

Functional Group AM

This Draft Standard for Trial Use contains the format and establishes the data contents of the Item Information Request Transaction Set (893) for use within the context of an Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) environment. The transaction set can be used by distributors and brokers to request complete item information from the manufacturers, suppliers, brokers, or agents. The item information will be returned using the Item Maintenance Transaction Set (888). In a collaborative forecasting relationship, this transaction set can be used by either a manufacturer or distributor to request product activity from the other. The product activity will be returned using the Product Activity Data Transaction Set (852).
