  • 1.  API Purchase Order - TMF 687 StockManagement

    Hello,

    I have a functional use case for managing purchase orders to be inserted into SAP and replicated within the warehouse management system to prepare for order reception. Once received, a notification must be sent.

    There are three potential APIs to consider:

    1. Utilizing the stockManagement API to create a stock product and send all items to be delivered.
    2. Using the ProductOrder API to create an order with all necessary elements, even though ProductOrder is more geared towards commercial orders rather than purchases.
    3. Considering the purchasing Order API, which unfortunately seems to be unavailable in the TMF API table.

    In your opinion, which API would be the best fit for fulfilling this requirement: ProductOrder or stockManagement, and why?

    Thank you very much for your assistance with this matter.

    Hello Hikma,

    In my view implementing both the API TMF687 Stock management and TMF622 Product ordering is necessary.

    All the product order items inside the stock management is managed via attribute (RelatedProductOrderItem [*]) .The product order item which
    triggered when product order is created/changed/terminated. 

    To receive notification of related order using the notification resource(Events).

    Hi,

    I agree with Ragavi that both API are required. Unless it is implied with the productOrder also TMF700 Shipping Ordering will be required. e.g. consignment stock.

    Supply chain can be complex matter and your use case needs to be analysed in detail.

    Regards

    It depends on who is placing the order, what is being ordered, and for whom the order is intended.
    if the product is a tangible good (Physical Resource), you also have the option to use the Resource Order API.
    example of use case from the the API doc:

    The operator is buying 7km of optical cable (the Physical Resource) made by FiberOpticsRUs (in the role of Manufacturer) on behalf of Acme Inc (in the role of Customer).
