Integrating and Visualizing Nissan Forecast Delivery Schedules in SAP Processes


Nissan uses different EDI message formats for almost every plant in Europe and America. The shipping labels also vary from country to country and depending on the delivery process. Common to all Nissan processes is that forecast delivery schedules contain a Release Authorization Number (RAN) that the supplier must incorporate into the SAP scheduling agreement and report back in the advanced shipping notification and on labels.


With the SPEEDI Nissan RAN OEM solution, suppliers using SAP software can integrate and visualize Nissan forecast delivery schedules, including RAN, and the additional information transmitted to them in their SAP processes. This enables consistent, IT-supported, and largely automated scheduling agreement processing per Nissan’s requirements. The SPEEDI Nissan RAN solution package channels the RAN including the additional data through the SAP system, so that they are stated in the shipping notification and the delivery document as prescribed, and that labels and forms for delivery are correctly labeled.

This SPEEDI solution package also provides the prescribed labels and shipping forms for the respective NISSAN location and process. SPEEDI’s additional functions also map the special process requirements of Nissan in Mexico and Brazil, and of Cooperation Manufacturing Plant Aguascalientes (COMPAS), the joint venture between Renault-Nissan and Daimler in SAP. Other special features of Nissan, such as the non-transmission of cumulative quantities for forecast delivery schedules and JIT delivery schedules, which the SAP Standard does not or only insufficiently cover, are also supported by SPEEDI Nissan RAN. This also applies to ANSI X12 feedback messages if necessary.

WSW Software also provides custom mappings and mapping specifications for the various Nissan EDI standards - EDIFACT, ODETTE, ANSI X12.
