Order Model 1 - Discrete Purchase Order, Established Customer, Established Product, Version 2.0 
Status:  Provisional Ratification by Committee April 2000. Created as part of recast of original order models, Pre-2000 Version C (Balloted and Ratified by Membership, November 1996), into Replenishment Scenarios.

Business Overview

Special Notes:

Buyer calculates requirements and places purchase orders, based upon agreed standard product and pricing information from Price / Sales Catalog or upon Quote Request / Responses.   See also Assumptions in the supporting documentation.  Order Models are better understood in the context of replenishment.  The Replenishment Scenario Matrix shows how Forecast/Planning and Order models interact to form Replenishment models.

Step Description
1. Buyer may precede order with quoting or contracting cycle.
2. Buyer may send planning forecast to seller.  (Optional - depends on which Replenishment Scenario is being used).
3. Buyer generates discrete, standalone Purchase Order.
4. Seller responses with Purchase Order Response/Acknowledgment.
5. If needed, PO Change Requests (Seller-initiated changes) may be sent to the buyer.
6. If necessary, buyer may send a PO Change Request Denial to the seller.  Alternatively, buyer may accept the requested changes or make counterproposal (Step 7.)
7. If needed, buyer may send buyer-initiated change to the order or response to seller-initiated change that either accepts seller's proposed changes or makes counterproposal.  Alternatively, the buyer may deny the seller's requested changes (Step 6.)

Note:  If buyer send neither a PO Change Request Denial nor a response to seller-initiated change, the trading partner agreement should indicate how this should be interpreted, otherwise EIDX recommends that the seller should assume that the requested changes have been denied.

8. If buyer-initiated change order is sent, seller acknowledges change orders.
9. Seller ships goods to specified ship-to location per appropriate Logistics Scenario.
10. Billing and Payment cycle initiated per appropriate Financial Scenario.
