1 EDI as the communication channel for the Daimler AG procurement


process
1.1 Benefits of electronic data interchange

Daimler AG began using electronic data interchange back in 1983, as what was then a very new way of
exchanging information. EDI is now well established as a reliable state-of-the-art channel of communication
for doing business in todays world.

Particularly in view of advances in logistics, Daimler AG plants and their suppliers will be working more
closely together than in the past. This will mean increased process synchronisation, which would not be
feasible without the use of electronic communication channels.

The main aims of EDI communication are as follows:

fast and secure data interchange

paper-free data interchange

elimination of repeated data entry by the recipient (time and cost)

reduction of errors caused by having to re-input the data

standard interfaces for processing regularly recurring bulk data communications

no printing on expensive multiple-copy forms

However, EDI is more than just another channel of communication. By enabling fast, standardised data
interchange, it creates the basis for enhancements to other related processes, thereby generating potential
savings.
Examples of these enhancement opportunities include:

Reductions in administration expenses through:


- standardisation of work processes, and therefore simplification of processes both across multiple
workplaces and within individual workplaces
- immediate availability of data for further processing with user programs
Faster flow of information, resulting in
- immediate reaction to changed requirements
- faster flow of goods
- fewer one-off operations, such as special transport consignments
- more accurate planning
- greater flexibility
- less capital tied up in inventories

These enhancements are available to all parties involved in the communication process.

The prerequisite is the successful integration of EDI into internal systems and processes.

We expect all our partners, including component suppliers, area contract freight forwarders and external
service providers, to make effective use of these state-of-the-art communication technologies and resources,
becoming more competitive in the process.

Daimler AG
Issued December 2014
Chapter 1 Electronic Data Page 6
Interchange Manual

We see this as a fundamental requirement for our mutual efforts to optimize the costs and processes of our
business operations.

Our purchasing partner selection decisions will be based not only on optimum quality of the actual service,
e.g. material or transport, but also implicitly on the providers readiness to display flexibility and innovation,
and therefore the ability to use state-of-the-art communication systems.

This attitude is also shared by other automotive producers and in other sectors, so showing some initiative in
this area is very much in your own best interests as well.

Accordingly, these requirements which we have been voicing for some years now are not seen as an
appropriate area for any investment contribution on our part.

As far as transmission fees are concerned, Daimler AG has always followed the principle of sender pays.

To enable our partners to remain competitive and to protect their investment, Daimler AG undertakes to
comply with established message standards.

1.2 Using electronic data interchange in the Daimler AG procurement process

2 Call-off messages
EDI transmission of call-off data is the part of the process chain starting from the customer request and
proceeding through the issuing of purchase order or call-off data to goods receipt of the ordered material.

The demand data is sourced from different upstream systems, so the delivery intervals vary, and in some
cases there can even be multiple deliveries in a single day.

The required data is generated at individual locations, according to the following VDA recommendations:
VDA 4905 EDI for call-offs
VDA 4905/2 EDI for call-offs based on the ODETTE message DELINS
VDA 4915 EDI for detailed call-offs
VDA 4916 EDI for JIS call-offs

You should consult with the relevant plant MRP controller on whether messages according to
VDA 4915 or VDA 4916 are to be generated in addition to the VDA 4905 message.

In view of the increased emphasis on international supplier relationships and the increasing implementation
of EDI messages according to the ODETTE standard (Organisation for Data Exchange by Teletransmission in
Europe -> European automotive associations grouping), the ODETTE call-off message DELINS (Delivery
Instruction), corresponding to VDA recommendation 4905/2, is to be provided for receiving call-offs in
ODETTE format (see section 2.3.).

This message is an alternative to the familiar VDA messages, which Daimler AG will continue to maintain.

2.1 Call-off according to VDA 4905

VDA recommendation VDA 4905 is used for call-offs for productive material.

In general, purchase orders for non-productive material (ancillary materials and supplies, capital goods,
etc.) will be processed using eDOCS wherever possible. Please consult your MRP controller.

2.1.1 Objectives of call-off

Along with the general benefits of EDI communication (e.g. fast, paper-free data transmission), the
interchange of call-offs in this way results in the following specific benefits:

immediate availability of the data for further processing


rapid response to changes in requirements
better service
enhanced competitiveness

2.1.2 Fundamentals

A call-off notifies the supplier of requirement quantities in the near, medium and distant future. This provides
the supplier with the basis for production scheduling and primary material scheduling and shipping
management.

EDI data has the same legally valid status as data in hard-copy documents.

The party generating the data is responsible for checking the completeness of the information in call-offs sent
by electronic channels. On receipt of the communication, the data is saved and checked, and in-house data
required for further computer processing is added.
We recommend that you store the data on a data carrier for a certain time.

Daimler AG
Issued December 2014
Chapter 2 Electronic Data Page 10
Interchange Manual

The data received can be uniquely assigned via the following sort criteria:

Customer plant
Customer part number
Delivery point
New LAB (call-off) replaces old LAB

2.1.3 Issuing a call-off

Call-offs are based on the Daimler AG production program for:


JIT,
JIS,
LLZ,
warehouse and
frequency.

VDA standard 4905 is used for standard deliveries to warehouses and LLZs.
VDA standards 4915 or 4905 apply to standard detailed deliveries.

LPS = Lieferabruf- und Produktionsverbund-System


(German acronym for call-off and coordinated production)

Call-off data is issued via LPS or SAP as the base system. The output data is VDA-compliant, with no
requirement for confirmation of delivery dates and quantities.

2.1.4 The VDA 4905 message

The VDA 4905 message comprises the following records:

Record type Contents


511 Call-off data header record (1x per EDI run)
512 One-off data elements for call-off (1x per sort criterion)
513 Demarcation and call-off data (1x per sort criterion)
514 Other call-off data (x times per sort criterion)
515 Additional LAB (call-off) information (1x per sort criterion)
517 Packing material data (x times per sort criterion)
518 Text data (x times per sort criterion)

this call-off invoice.
(64) Delivery note no. O 8 A
(18) Dates M 8 A/N Dates may be expressed as days,
weeks or months.
A day specified for call-off quantities
refers to the date for arrival of the
shipment at the orderers premises.
Special forms for dates are backlog
[Rckstand], immediate
requirement [Sofortbedarf] and
remainder [Rest].
A backlog is the positive difference
between the cumulative quantity as
of the date of this call-off invoice
minus the cumulative received
quantity.
The call-off cumulative quantity as of
the call-off date is always taken as the
smaller of the values from the
mathematical comparison between
the old and new call-off cumulative
quantities.
The call-off cumulative
quantity/old [Abruf-Fz/alt] is the
value forecast in the previous call-off
invoice for the date of the present
call-off invoice, whereas the call-off
cumulative quantity/new [Abruf-
Fz/neu] is the value stated as of the
date of the present call-off invoice for
that same date.
Accordingly,
any backlog is diminished by
retrospective programme reductions;
but not increased by retrospective
program increases.

Daimler AG
Issued December 2014

Interchange Manual

(18) Deadlines M 8 A/N An immediate requirement is


(continued) generally only indicated if the call-off
cumulative quantity/new is higher
than the call-off cumulative
quantity/old on the call-off date.
The immediate requirement is then
the positive difference between the
call-off cumulative quantity/new
[Abruf-Fz/neu] and the sum total of
the cumulative received quantity
[Eingangs-Fz] and the backlog.
Also added to the immediate
requirement may be further call-off
quantities whose arrival date falls
within an immediate requirement
period [Sofortbedarfs-Frist] set at the
orderers discretion.
Examples of an immediate
requirement period could include:
the period up until the date of the
next call-off invoice
the period up to the end of the
week or plan period in which the
date of the present call-off invoice
falls
a certain number of workdays
within the period up to the date of
the next call-off invoice.
Negative values for backlog and
immediate requirement are not
shown, but instead netted off against
other requirement quantities until
such time as the balance is again
positive. This positive remainder then
forms the first dated call-off quantity
of the present call-off.
The remainder [Rest] may be the
sum total of forecast quantities for
several subsequent months beyond
the month specified in the
immediately preceding call-off field.
(30) Quantity M 10 N No decimal places.
(63) Call-off cumulative M 10 N Cumulative quantity that must have
quantity (Abruf-Fz) been met by all deliveries posted by
the orderer from a date (e.g. 1.1. of
the current year) up to the specified
call-off deadline date. The call-off
cumulative quantity is formed on the
basis of the cumulative received
quantity by ongoing accumulation of
the call-off quantities (including
backlog and immediate requirement).

2.2 Detailed call-off according to VDA 4915

2.2.1 Objectives/area of application of a detailed call-off

Objective of detailed call-off

The aim is to generate call-offs for a selected range of parts, daily or even several times a day, in response to
changing production and assembly requirements, in order to optimise information and material flows.

The following are particularly suitable areas of application:

Parts families where the volumes involved require timely deliveries close to one or more user locations
without the use of interim depots.

Parts families subject to wide fluctuations in demand, requiring frequent updates to ensure deliveries are
made according to production requirements.

Detailed call-offs can also serve a number of purposes for the supplier:

precise shipping instructions


where applicable, as a tool for fine-tuning production schedules
advance notification of JIS call-offs (VDA 4916)

Advantages of detailed call-offs:

ability to process demand data in response to current requirements


ability to post special requirements arising within a workday
preliminary planning on hourly basis
timetable management
same-day call-off invoice
flexible interchange of demand data
flexible calendar management
early EDI dispatch (as VDA 4905)
low interchange volume (5 to 15 days)

2.2.2 The VDA 4915 message

The VDA 4915 message comprises the following records:

Record type Contents


551 Detailed call-off header record (1st record of EDI run)
552 One-off data elements of detailed call-offs (1x per sort criterion)
553 Detailed call-off demarcation data (max. 3x per sort criterion)
554 Detailed call-off data (x times per sort criterion )
555 Additional data for detailed call-off (1x per sort criterion)

Pos: 15 N 10 O Cumulative quantity
difference

Description:
The calculation of quantities for delivery must take account of over- and under-deliveries. In the example
shown below, this is done in the UL/L field (= under- and over-delivery respectively).

Under-deliveries:
If a negative value is shown in the UL/L field, you have to add this value to the ordered quantity.

Example:
The value 10 appears in the UL/L field. For your delivery operation, this means that on 28.11.95 you
are required to deliver a further 10 items in addition to the specified quantity of 14 (= 24).

Over-deliveries:
If a positive value appears in UL/L, this quantity has to be subtracted from the ordered quantity.

Example:
The value 439 appears in the UL/L field. For your delivery operation, this means that you will not have
delivered anything on 28.11.95, and only 19 items on 29.11.95.

Example: Call-off Detailed call-off


Unload. point: 470S0 470S0

Daimler AG
Issued December 2014

b) Call-off has the dummy unloading point 9999, indicating that this call-off is to be used solely for
planning purposes. The detailed call-off then has the actual 5-character unloading point.

Example: Call-off Detailed call-off


Unload. point: 9999 470S0

2. Part number with several unloading points:

a) There is a call-off for every detailed call-off. The unloading points are filled in in exactly the same
way for each call-off/detailed call-off, with five characters.

Example: Call-off Detailed call-off


1st unload. point: 332X0 332X0
2nd unload. point: 386C0 386C0
3rd unload. point: 470S0 470S0

b) In this case there is only one call-off, assigned the dummy unloading point 9999, representing the
sum total of all planned requirements for the unloading points in question. In contrast, the detailed
call-offs contain the 5-character unloading points for which the unloading point-based requirements
will be shown.

Example: Call-off Detailed call-off


Unload. point: 9999 1.: 332X0
2.: 386C0

Use and explanation of requirement status
Code B. One field for each call-off time and call-off quantity:

Bedarfsstatus bis Bedarfsstatus Schlssel 1 Schlssel x [= requirement status to requirement status


code 1 code x]

This field is an optional field, i.e. it need not be filled in. It is, however, frequently used by Daimler AG by
arrangement with the suppliers involved.

Explanation:
The B code indicates, for the relevant call-off time/quantity, that there has been no change with respect to
the preceding call-off invoice, i.e. for a specified period these requirement quantities are frozen, and the
supplier can therefore take them from the previous call-off.

How requirements are frozen, and for how long, depends on two parameters, which are defined and entered
in the detailed call-off system in consultation with the supplier.

Daimler AG

Time parameter
AV (call-off lead time)

This is the time between the call-off invoice EDI and shipment from the supplier (delivery note EDI).

3. TV (transport lead time)

This is the time between shipment from the supplier (delivery note EDI) and arrival at goods receipt.

The timeframe for frozen requirement numbers comprises AV + TV.

Example:

Timetable (delivery time per day):


08:00/12:00/16:00/20:00
AV: 2 hrs TV: 4 hrs

= B *) = B **)

Deadline dates between AV + TV are given requirement status code = B.

This means that these deadline dates (requirement quantities) will not now be changed, because the
suppliers response time is 6 hours, and the supplier is therefore unable to react to any further fluctuation in
requirements within AV + TV.

2.3.4 Special features

There are some special points to be noted for the following segments:

MID segment:
Daimler AG assigns call-off numbers on a parts number basis. For this purpose, VDA recommendation
4905/2 provides the option of entering the value ARD in the element MID-1004 (call-off no.), and leaving all
the other MID elements empty. The call-off no. and call-off date are sent in ADI-1004 and ADI-2007.

ARI segment:
The ARI segment is not sent. According to VDA recommendation 4905/2, the element ARI-7903 (call-off date
code) then implicitly has the value 2, i.e. the call-off date refers to the arrival date.

DST segment:
Element DST-6804 is used to send the cumulative received quantity (EFZ). This EFZ is reset to zero at the
beginning of a new accumulation period (generally change of year).

DEL segment:
Daimler AG uses element DEL-2836 to send a preview period, in the format YYWWYYWW (Y=year,
W=week). Accordingly, this period always has a set starting date and ending date. However, Daimler AG also
often provides a preview period denoting the remainder (Rest) of the most recent explicitly defined preview
period. This is shown in DEL-2836 as 99999999.

3 Delivery note and transport data according to VDA 4913

The delivery note and transport data EDI, according to VDA 4913, is the core message for material-
accompanying information. Our company has supported this application since 1984. It is our assumption that
all incoming goods shipments will be notified in advance with a delivery note EDI.

Delivery note data according to VDA 4913 are to be provided by:

suppliers (of series and non-series material)

JIT and JIS suppliers

external service providers (EDL)

LLZ

Some special requirements for completing the data fields apply for certain data sender groups.
Instructions and rules applicable to all groups are explained in sections 3.1 to 3.6. The special requirements
for generating VDA 4913 data for JIT and JIS suppliers, external service providers and area contract freight
forwarders are then discussed separately.

3.1 How the delivery note and transport data message according to VDA 4913 fits
into the goods receipt process at Daimler AG plants
Immediately on arrival in the plant, the truck driver reports to the truck management station. Provided the
EDI was sent in good time, the data is already in our user systems in an AVIS file (Avis = advice
notification). The data is actually received by the T-Systems EDIS system, and automatically forwarded to the
target user systems.

The staff at the counter input the keys shown in the waybill into the Daimler AG goods receipt systems, and
the data as per the advice notification are posted as a goods entry.

Your EDI data is handed to the truck driver as an unloading list and clearance voucher, with comments
confirming arrival of the consignment, for presentation to the unloading points. The truck is then driven to
the unloading point(s) in the plant.

Unfortunately, for process reliability reasons it is not possible to eliminate all hard-copy documentation for
supplier information accompanying goods consignments.

There are two options for hard-copy documents for EDI delivery notes:

EDI goods accompanying slip according to VDA 4912 (see Chapter 4). The use of this slip significantly
reduces the volume of paper documents. The submission of an EDI goods accompanying slip is
mandatory for all Daimler AG plants.

Delivery note according to DIN 4991 (fallback for special cases only).

Daimler AG
Issued December 2014
Chapter 3 Electronic Data Page 30
Interchange Manual

3.2 Objectives of the delivery note and transport data EDI according to VDA 4913

Advance notification by EDI to the goods recipient advising that a shipment is on the way: the
information arrives before the goods.

High material availability with minimum stock. The material in the process of being transported can be
included in the assessment of stock and available material. This means fewer queries from the ordering
party to the sender/supplier.

Easier entry of delivery note and transport data for the recipient of the data.

Possibility of automatic GR processing, sometimes even self-service processing by the truck driver;
this will become an increasingly widely used method.

State-of-the-art goods receipt process by scanning of package labels, based on packing material data
according to VDA 4913.

The invoice checking desk receives the EDI delivery note data via an interface. There are fewer delays
with processing payments, since receiving the data by EDI eliminates all data entry errors by the goods
recipient.

3.3 The VDA 4913 message


The delivery note and transport data message according to VDA 4913 is one of the main messages and an
absolute requirement.

It demands an especially high level of process quality, and compliance with the following requirements is
particularly important:

Timely transmission
To ensure the early detection and efficient elimination of errors in information flows, the data must be
sent sufficiently early in the process to leave time for the initiating party (data sender) to correct any
errors using the Internet-based Daimler data quality management (DQM) application (see item 3.4).
The data must be sent to the goods recipient by no later than immediately after the consignment
handover to the goods recipient. Reason: For groupage consignments, our area contract freight forwarders
generate a transport EDI according to VDA recommendation 4921. VDA 4921 quotes the shipment
reference number and the delivery note numbers in the VDA 4913 message.

With certain processes, it may be necessary to send the data even earlier (see e.g. item 3.8).

Demarcation of consignments
The Consignment loading reference number (record type 712) is used to group 1 to n delivery notes
into a single consignment. The EDI and actual loading details must be exactly the same.

Packaging information
Record type 715 shows packing material information. One of its functions is to make the link with the
material label according to VDA 4902. The EDI and the label must correspond, because the barcode scan
is checked against the EDI content. This is described in detail in the VDA message.

In order to avoid problems and queries with the data flow and goods receipt process, please be particularly
careful to observe the requirements described in the next few pages.

3.4 Process optimisation by data quality management (DQM)

Daimler AG provides an Internet-based data quality management system (DQM) in order to improve the
quality of data. This gives suppliers a very simple and effective way to check their EDI messages for
completeness and correctness immediately after transmission, and to make corrections if necessary.

If it you are not able to create all the delivery note data using standard EDI (e.g. according to VDA 4913),
special transactions can be created and sent in DQM under the navigation item Create delivery notes (600).

Comprehensive information on the DQM application and the delivery note EDI is available on the Daimler
suppliers portal, at
http://daimler.covisint.com

in the Navigation "Collaboration" - "Production and Logistics" in the subject block "Data Communication
with Daimler AG".

3.7 Special cases for the delivery note and transport data message

3.7.1 Corrections

If content corrections are required after the data have been sent, the changes have to be made in DQM (see
item 3.4).

3.7.2 EDI resend capability

It must be possible to resend EDIs. We expect this capability for the three most recent communications for
each recipient.

3.7.3 EDI problems

In a few very rare cases it may be impossible to send the delivery note data (e.g. special trips, computer
failure, line problems, reception problems, etc.).

In this case, delivery notes can be created and sent in DQM under the navigation item Create delivery notes
(600) (see item 3.4).

If this is not possible, all copies of the delivery note and waybill must be clearly marked (with a stamp if
possible) (see Emergencies).

3.7.4 Emergencies

If we do not receive VDA 4913 messages, it is important to ascertain the cause for this problem. Internal
follow-up is ensured via EDIS enquiries. A contact name must be provided for follow-up enquiries with the
supplier.

During brief EDI malfunctions it is possible to enter the data manually in the target system. However, this
capacity is limited and it incurs extra costs for us which may be passed on to the supplier.

Input documents are the delivery papers carried by the driver (delivery note or EDI goods accompanying slip).

3.7.5 Sample deliveries

The sample identification must be entered in the EDI for sample deliveries.

For consignments according to VDA 4913, Y = Sample must be entered in the record type 714 under position
106.

For consignments made over the Internet (DQM), Sample must be selected in the application key field in
the delivery note position data.

3.7.6 Return of empties


Customer Articel number: QLEERGUT
Delivery Quantity: 1
Quantity units: Pieces

Customer packaging number: the specific package number (e.g. 9040)


Number of packaging items: The number of items being returned

Daimler AG
Issued December 2014
Chapter 3 Electronic Data Page 54
Interchange Manual

3.7.7 Central loading unit for deliveries via courier service

For the deliveries via a courier service a central loading unit is needed (see VDA 4913 example 3a). In order
to guarantee this with the dispatch of individual small load carrier (so far no regular pallet is sent),
additionally a dummy pallet in the delivery notes must emerge for the packing code of the small load carrier
(see VDA 4913 record type 715, pos. 03, columns 6-27) at first position. For this pallet the packing code
0000BUN should be used. This dummy pallet must be provided additionally with a master label M (see
VDA 4913 record type 715, pos. 13, column 125). In addition, this master label must be printed and be
attached on the small load carrier. The storage of the sent goods can take place using this master label.

For a better understanding an example is in the following specified. This example exclusively refers to the
record type 715, pos. 02, pos. 03 and pos. 13.

Record type version no. packing code label


715 03 0000BUN M
715 03 4315 S

Please pay attention to the correct information and order of the load carriers. The master label and/or the
pallet must be listed always at first position. Please use the DQM (see Chapter 3.4) in order to examine and
if necessary to correct your data before the goods get in storage.

3.8 Contact person for problems with the EDIS communication computer:
T-Systems EDI Customer Support (Contact person in Chapter 11.2.1.3)

3.9 Tips and useful information

Demarcation of consignments <-> link to waybill

The following must be shown on the waybill/forwarding instruction:

Field 2: Supplier no. (from record type 711)


Field 8: Consignment/load ref. no. (SLBN from record type 712)
Field 10: Forwarding agent no. (from record type 712)
Field 18: Deliverynote number(s) (from record type 713)

And for direct-contract transport consignments, also the following:

Field 13: Bordereau no.

These data elements are:

a) Access keys at the truck management points at Daimler plants for locating EDI data.
b) Key terms for freight billing.

Important notes:
Always ensure that the EDI data (demarcation as per record type 712) correspond exactly to the
loading scope.

Multiple consignment numbers on the same waybill are not permitted in any circumstances.

Daimler AG
Issued December 2014
Chapter 3 Electronic Data Page 55
Interchange Manual

VDA specification 4922 permits the issuing of waybills by unloading point or by shipping address (a
similar arrangement applies for the SLB no.). This is to be agreed bilaterally between the parties.

Rules for Daimler AG:

For groupage consignments via our area contract freight forwarders: waybill for each unloading
point

For other transport scenarios:


waybill for each delivery address
So for the Sindelfingen plant address, for example, separate waybills are required for its outposts, i.e.
Bblingen-Hulb, etc.

3.10 Transport management


Generally, the VDA 4913 specification applies. Deviations from the specification, with regard to transport
management, are described in this section.

3.10.1 Data transmission

The data sender is to transmit the data by no later than 2 hours before loading. This is essential to ensure that
the driver can download the data for the packages to be collected (electronic target loading list) on their
mobile phone.

3.10.2 Notes on record types and data elements

The sequence of record types must be exactly as per the VDA specification. Additionally, the changes

The requirements are generally the same as per the basic VDA 4913 message as described in the preceding
pages. The differences for message generation by external service providers are described below.

3.12.4 Brief description

Owing to shared storage arrangements between suppliers and Daimler AG, at some plant locations there are
storage facilities close to the plant operated by external service providers (EDL).

EDI generation by external service providers is described in Chapter 3 of the VDA recommendation. Other
points are agreed bilaterally between the parties when the contract is signed.

The warehouse stock belongs to the supplier. When a call-off is issued for the material, the EDL, acting on the
suppliers instructions, prepares the delivery note data in VDA 4913 format. Stock data are also transferred,
again with VDA 4913 and a special procedure.

3.13 Generation by EDL (external service providers) (VDA 4913/EDL)


The requirements are generally the same as per the basic VDA 4913 message as described in the preceding
pages. The differences for message generation by external service providers are described below.

3.13.1 Brief description

Owing to shared storage arrangements between suppliers and Daimler AG, at some plant locations there are
storage facilities close to the plant operated by external service providers (EDL).

EDI generation by external service providers is described in Chapter 3 of the VDA recommendation. Other
points are agreed bilaterally between the parties when the contract is signed.

The warehouse stock belongs to the supplier. When a call-off is issued for the material, the EDL, acting on the
supplier's instructions, prepares the delivery note data in VDA 4913 format. Stock data are also transferred,
again with VDA 4913 and a special procedure.

4 Goods accompanying slip according to VDA 4912

4.1 Brief description of VDA 4912


The increasing use of the delivery note and transport data EDI according to VDA recommendation 4913
between suppliers and automotive producers means that we are moving closer to the day when delivery note
forms will no longer be required.

The EDI goods accompanying slip can be regarded is the paper form of the EDI according to VDA 4913.

Even with the use of an EDI system, a hard-copy document is still required for the physical goods receipt
process. The EDI goods accompanying slip is an effective way to reduce the volume of paper documents.
Further cost savings for forms are achieved by the use of blank paper.

This presentation of delivery information in condensed form at unloading point level (for multiple delivery
note nos.) is an extract from the data fields and content from the EDI message according to VDA 4913.

The EDI goods accompanying slip also provides a backup so that processing can continue during EDI
outages. In this case the slip is used as a record for data entry by the recipient of the goods.

An EDI message communicating delivery note data according to VDA 4913 is also expected in the case of
goods shipment with a parcels service operator. In this case the EDI goods accompanying slip should be
placed in the pouch provided for accompanying documents.
If this is not possible for process management reasons, it is sufficient to enter the consignment loading
reference no. on the delivery note.
If this is also not possible, the absolute minimum requirement is to enter the letters EDI.

5 Material label according to VDA 4902, version 4

VDA has developed a standard material label. This document is also recommended by ODETTE.

New techniques for Goods Receipt operations have made barcodes particularly important. Under the package
system, the barcode is scanned. A comparison with the 4913 EDI is run in the background. The quality of the
barcode is crucial.

5.1 Special notes on usage


Attachment
For occupational safety reasons and also for ease of disposal of old labels, only use plastic clips or spots of
glue.

Gluing over the entire surface is not permitted. This can make plastic containers unusable. In such cases, we
have to pass the recycling, replacement and repacking costs on to the party causing the problem.

Attachment location, number of material labels see table below.


Any other attachment locations must be agreed on in writing by the supplier and recipient.

Font size
The unloading point and part number must be shown in characters at least 10 mm high.

6 Forwarding instruction according to VDA 4922


6.1 Brief description
The VDA, in cooperation with the German Freight Forwarding and Storage Association (BSL), has developed a
standard transport accompanying document. The results are described in VDA recommendation VDA 4922
(forwarding instruction). The document has also been standardised by DIN under no. 5018 (see VDA
recommendation, Appendix 13 for a sample).

Another advantage of this document besides reducing processing costs is its close integration with the
delivery note and transport data EDI according to VDA recommendation 4913. The forwarding instruction
contains the significant fields from that message which are required for goods receipt purposes.

There are two main areas of application:

6.1.1 Groupage consignments

Our company has introduced an area contract freight forwarding category for groupage consignments. A
forwarding instruction has to be issued for preliminary transport from supplier
-> freight forwarder (transshipment point). The freight forwarder then draws up a loading list on the
basis of the data in the forwarding instruction.

The loading list is also sent in the EDI according to VDA 4921, and is used for freight billing, for example.

6.1.2 Direct transport operations

A forwarding instruction is also required for direct-contract transport operations, i.e. transport directly
from the supplier to us. In this case the manifest number (which is also the freight billing number) is
shown on the forwarding instruction.

The issue of a forwarding instruction is mandatory for every transport operation.

Chapter 6 Electronic Data Page 75
Interchange Manual

6.2 Notes on issuing the document

6.2.1 Groupage consignments


n waybills for a given unloading point

A waybill must be issued for each unloading point (= 1 to n consignment loading reference nos.).

Example:
If a truck stops at five unloading points in a plant section, five waybills must be issued.

The following fields, among others, must be completed:

Field 2 Supplier no.


Field 8 Consignment loading reference no.
Field 10 Freight forwarding no.
Field 18 Delivery note no.(s)

Note on assignment of manifest no.:


The manifest number for groupage consignments is assigned by the freight forwarder. No entry should be
made in the forwarding instruction.

6.2.2 Direct-contract
1 waybill per delivery address

Issue one waybill for each delivery address (= 1 Consignment loading reference no.). In this case there is only
one VDA 4913 (supplier) and no VDA 4921 (freight forwarder).

Example:
If a truck stops at two external warehouses of the same plant, two waybills must be made out.

The following fields, among others, must be completed:

Field 2 Supplier no.


Field 8 Consignment loading reference no.
Field 10 Freight forwarding no.
Field 13 Bordereau/loading list no.
Field 18 Delivery note no.(s)

6.2.3 Other important fields

In addition to the fields mentioned above, the following fields are also particularly important for goods receipt
and freight checking:

Field 16 Arrival date


Field 23 Loading equipment weight kg
Field 24 Gross weight kg

8.3 Information on account statement processing


Container account statements by EDI

Container account statements over EDI allow a computerised reconciliation of container movement data.

Partners have the option of having all EDI data sent to the main number (index at 9th character of supplier
no. = blank) or individually to the delivery locations (index at 9th character of supplier no. blank).

Container account statements via Internet

Account statements are made available over the Internet through our Container Management department.

Account management by delivery location

Our account management is based on delivery locations. For the supplier number, the internal Daimler
supplier no. index is used (9th character of the supplier no.). When reconciling the posting data, remember
that the posting may be found under another index.

Note:

The current scope of centrally account-managed containers is documented solely in the eCon Internet
application within the Daimler supplier portal. The scope of centrally account-managed containers is updated
several times a year. Our partners are required to reconcile their postings via eCon and to keep accounts of
their containers.

9 Transport data for shipments according to VDA 4921


9.1 Communication model for inclusion of shipment consignments
Transport is an important link in the external material flow process. To ensure comprehensive process
information, it is essential to include transport contractors in the electronic data interchange process.

The VDA recommendations for EDI communications and documents for transport data outlined below were
developed in collaboration with the German Federal Freight Forwarding and Warehousing Association,
Bonn (BSL).

9.1.1 Supplier to freight forwarder (electronic forwarding instruction)

This information is an extremely important basis for rational and efficient transport processes.

The following recommendations are available:

a) VDA recommendation 4920


This document has not been generally accepted.

b) VDA/ODETTE recommendation TRINAD


On the basis of the EDIFACT message IFTMIN, the VDA has developed the TRINAD subset
(Transport Instruction Advice), working in close collaboration with ODETTE and BSL members.

Plans are being made for the implementation of this new message at Daimler AG.
Our company is likely to recommend the ODETTE message TRINAD (subset of the IFTMIN EDIFACT
message).

9.1.2 Freight forwarder to auto manufacturer (electronic loading list)

a) VDA recommendation 4921


The data exchange according to VDA 4921 is already a standard application with our area contract
freight forwarders.
b) VDA/ODETTE recommendation CONSUM
On the basis of the EDIFACT message IFCSUM, VDA has developed the CONSUM
(Consolidation Summary Message) message.

Daimler AG is not able to process this message at this stage.

This is how it should be: functional diagram

9.3 Time relationships between VDA 4913 and VDA 4921


VDA 4913 has a major impact on the functionality of VDA 4921.

VDA 4921 refers to VDA 4913 via the consignment loading reference no. and the delivery note list.

First the VDA 4913


Then the VDA 4921

For groupage consignment trucks, VDA 4921 provides the possibility of changing the consignment
composition as per the VDA 4913 according to the cargo actually loaded or trans-loaded at the freight
forwarding terminal (e.g. for consignment make-up according to unloading points).

10 Invoice data according to VDA 4906

Daimler AG has had consistently good results from the use of EDI for invoicing over a period of years. We
regard this process as a logical enhancement to conventional invoicing methods.

10.1 Objectives of the invoice EDI


The main objectives of the communication of invoice data by EDI are as follows:

Rapid communication of invoicing data from the supplier to the recipient of the goods or services
Elimination of the multiple-copy sets of invoice forms according to DIN 4991
Avoiding the re-entry of data by the recipient, with the attendant data entry errors and payment delays
Computerised processing of regularly recurring bulk invoice data via standardised interfaces
Automatic provision of invoice data for suppliers Finance departments, and the recipients invoice
checking, creditor processing and book-keeping desks, for example

10.2 Notes on the use of the invoice EDI at Daimler AG

10.2.1 Recipient plant for an invoice EDI

In some cases invoicing processing operations are carried out at a single location for several different plants.
Therefore, the procedure for invoice EDIs is as follows:

The table below shows the plants for which invoices are processed at a single location. Invoices for these
plants must be combined in the same data packet.

*Invoices for the EVO bus plant in Mannheim are to be
sent separately.

The invoices differ in terms of the information in record type 812, pos. 10, customer plant.

The complete data package may include invoices for different plants. This data package is to be sent to the
plant shown in the plant location column above.

Issued December 2014
Chapter 10 Electronic Data Page 102
Interchange Manual

10.2.2 Scope of an EDI communication

To make the invoice EDI process as economically efficient as possible, an invoice should be drawn up for each
delivery note. The total invoice amount should then be combined in billing plant-specific data packets, and
forwarded to the plants once a week.

10.2.3 Billing with summary invoices

According to Art. 14 UStG (German Value Added Tax Act), the invoice recipient is required to archive a
summary invoice (totals sheet) for each data packet posted. The data sender is required to compile a summary
invoice for each data packet sent, as per VDA recommendation 4906, Appendix 11.

This summary invoice is to be forwarded to the contact person at each plant as specified in Chapter 12, by a
clearly legible fax, immediately after dispatch of the data packet.

10.3 Structure of the VDA 4906 message


The communication of invoice data by EDI is to be carried out in accordance with VDA recommendation
4906, edition of May 1993.

The following record types are used:

Record type Description Notes


811 Header record Identifies the partners.
Defines purpose of communication
812 Invoice data Incl. invoice no., invoice date, final amount
813 Delivery data Incl. delivery note no., unloading point
814 Invoice Incl. part number, delivery quantity, unit price
position data
819 Trailer record Contains the statistics of the data transfer

11 From procedure test to productive use

11.1 General procedure


As soon as you have completed the preparations at your location for setting up an EDI interface, please make
sure you have completed the following steps before setting up an EDI connection with our plants:

11.1.1 Procedure test with T-Systems

Line connections must be tested before any data interchanges with our plants.

Please contact T-Systems


Email: edi.hotline@t-systems.com
Phone: 0049 (0)39159762016

The Daimler AG has to assign it, if this is the first data transmission between the data sender and the Daimler
AG.

After the procedure tests have been successfully completed, please contact your contact persons at the
Daimler AG plants.

11.1.2 Individual message transmission test

11.1.2.1 Test of transfer of call-up data according to VDA 4905/4915

Tests will be carried on the transmission of VDA 4905/4915 call-up messages to you from each plant.

To set up the tests, please get in touch with the plant contact persons named in Chapter 12.

11.1.2.2 Test of transmission of delivery note and transport data according to VDA 4913

The transmission of the data can be send to the Daimler plant Sindelfingen, if the data sender the test data
VDA4913 developed.
You have to note, that no delivery number in the plant Sindelfingen which was already booked in the last 12
months can be used. For this reason you can use a pseudo address for example: 99999999 and also a pseudo
send address for example: 99999999

After the test data were sent, the data sender has to control the rightness of the data transmission in the
DQM-System (Data Quality Management). You will get the access through the supplier system (chapter 3.4).
If the test data is not correct and they have an error, than the data sender has to eliminate the errors and the
mapping for right data transmission must adapted in future.
The data sender must inform our DQM-CUHD about the successful test data transmission, if the test data was
correct (status green in DQM).
After that, the CUHD will inform all Daimler plants for the connection of the data sender as a new member for
the bill delivery data transmission.

Contact data CUHD:

Email: 050_datenqualitaet@daimler.com
Phone: 0049 (0)7031 90 77339

Tip:
If the test data successfully transmitted in the DQM cannot be found, than possibly a hierarchy mistake
exists. The hierarchy mistakes are apparent in the DQM in the function transmission data under search
transmission data packets (D101).

Tip:
If it doesnt an EDL processing (another service provider), then the field ''supplier number (EDL)'' should not
be filled in the sentence type 714 in place 77-85 with the suppliers number.

Please leave the field empty.


Only when an EDL processing with the transaction key 40, the suppliers number may be entered here.

See also descriptions in the VDA 4913 recommendation.

If you have supplier relationships with the Sindelfingen plant, Sindelfingen will be the pilot plant for sending
the VDA 4913 delivery note and transport data message.

Please get in touch with the contact person at the Sindelfingen plant to arrange a time and date for the test:

Mr Rolf Weber
Tel.: 07031-90-81 395
E-mail: rolf.rw.weber@daimler.com

If you do not supply the Sindelfingen plant, please test the VDA 4913 message with a plant which you do
supply products to. Please get in touch with the plant contact persons named in Chapter 12.

11.1.2.3 Test of transmission of invoice data according to VDA 4906

Please contact the person from chapter 12.2.


The message to T-Systems will be initiated and tested by FAO/G for all plants.
An EDI-agreement must be concluded between you the Daimler AG for using the VDA 4904.
FAO/G will provide you this form in the beginning.
The transfer of the message VDA 4906 commitment will be tested in the plant where you have the most
supply relationships.

The purpose of this test is to check the content of the data transmitted against the requirements of the
receiving systems, which are identical at all plants.

11.1.3 Setting up EDI connections with plants

T-Systems will inform you about the successful implementation of the test. After that you can begin with
FAO/G the production startup for all plants.
Following notification from T-Systems or pilot plants regarding successful completion of these tests, you need
to contact the EDI managers of the various plants (Chapter 12).
You must be authorised in the reception systems of the relevant plants before carrying out any data
interchanges otherwise it will not be possible to process your data.

Careful testing helps all parties to set up a reliable and secure data interchange, in terms of both technical
and content aspects.
