TBG1 Supply Chain
This specification provides the definition of the Delivery just in time message (DELJIT) to be used in Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) between trading partners involved in administration, commerce and transport.
1.1 Functional definition
A message provides the ability for a customer to convey precise delivery sequence and Just In Time schedule requirements to a supplier, and is intended to supplement the Delivery Schedule Message (DELFOR).
1.2 Field of application
The Delivery just in time message may be used for both national and international applications. It is based on universal practice related to administration, commerce and transport, and is not dependent on the type of business or industry.
The use of this message will facilitate the practice of Just In Time (JIT) delivery by providing the customer with a mechanism to issue precise shipping schedule requirements in terms of a 24 hour clock and on a more frequent basis than with the instance of a delivery schedule message, e.g. daily shipping schedules versus weekly planning schedules.

4. MESSAGE DEFINITION
4.1 Data segment clarification
This section should be read in conjunction with the segment table which indicates mandatory, conditional and repeating requirements.
The following guidelines and principles apply to the whole message and are intended to facilitate the understanding and implementation of the message:
All specified dates/times should be in the format 'ccyymmdd'/'hhmm' unless all parties involved in the transaction agree that there is a functional requirement for an alternative format. Periods should be specified as whole numbers representing the required period as indicated in the format qualifier (weeks, months, etc.)
Where a choice of code or text is given only the code element should be used wherever possible.
Conditional data that is not required in the message should not be included.
Care must be taken that the segment qualifier in dependent segments do not conflict with the segment qualifier of the trigger segment of a group.
Free text information within the message should be avoided as this inhibits automatic processing.
