EDI 830 - Planning Schedule with Release Capability
What is an EDI 830 Planning Schedule with Release Capability?
The EDI 830 Planning Schedule with Release Capability provides customary and established business practices relative to the transfer of forecasting or material release information between organizations.
How is an EDI 830 Planning Schedule with Release Capability used?
The senders of an EDI 830 Planning Schedules are typically manufacturers communicating with their suppliers. As such, the two trading partners represent a buyer (the manufacturer) and a seller (the supplier). The Planning Schedule allows the seller to plan resources such as labor and material, and to fulfill orders automatically based on the customer’s inventory levels.
An EDI 830 Planning Schedule with Release Capability is used in three ways:
As a basic sales forecast
As a forecast and an authorization for the recipient to commit to resources
As a forecast that also includes order release levels
After the 830 Planning Schedule with Release Capability is received, an EDI 997 Functional Acknowledgment is sent back indicating that the Planning Schedule with Release Capability was successfully received.

EDI 830 Specification
This X12 Transaction Set contains the format and establishes the data contents of the Planning Schedule with Release Capability Transaction Set (830) for use within the context of an Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) environment. The transaction set can be used to provide for customary and established business practice relative to the transfer of forecasting/material release information between organizations. The planning schedule transaction may be used in various ways or in a combination of ways, such as: (1) a simple forecast; (2) a forecast with the buyer's authorization for the seller to commit to resources, such as labor or material; (3) a forecast that is also used as an order release mechanism, containing such elements as resource authorizations, period-to-date cumulative quantities, and specific ship/delivery patterns for requirements that have been represented in "buckets," such as weekly, monthly, or quarterly. The order release forecast may also contain all data related to purchase orders, as required because the order release capability eliminates the need for discrete generation of purchase orders.
