Distributor Scenario 1 - Ship-from-Stock and Debit (SSD), Version 1.0 
Status:  Balloted and Ratified by Membership, August 2002

Implementation Options

Basic implementation options apply theoretically, but practical application has proven to be difficult because of the amount of information that must be synchronized between distributor and component supplier. Currently, the most robust technology for SSD is RosettaNet B2B; however, the specifications are neither mature nor widely deployed as of this writing.
