TBG1 Supply Chain
This specification provides the definition of the Sales data report message (SLSRPT) to be used in Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) between trading partners involved in administration, commerce and transport.
1.1 Functional definition
A message to enable the conveyance of product activity related to the sale of products or services, such as the activity location, date, time or period, quantity, pricing, monetary amount, market sector, involved parties and other data enabling various sales analysis processes. Such activity information allows the recipient to perform statistical and quantitative analysis in support of production, planning, marketing, replenishment, and other processes.
1.2 Field of application
The Sales data report 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.
This message provides product activity related to the sale of products or services in two mutually exclusive methods. These two methods are represented by segment groups 5 and 10 within the detail area.
- The first method is reporting activity by line item within a specific location, e.g. reporting each product sold within a specific location. This method will utilise segment group 5 and its subordinate groups. If segment group 5 is used segment group 10 shall not be used.
- The second method is reporting activity by location within each line item, e.g. reporting each location and quantity sold for a particular product. This method will utilise segment group 10 and its subordinate groups. If segment group 10 is used segment group 5 shall not be used.
The message may be sent from a buyer, seller, distributor, public warehouse or third party to their supplier, distributor, manufacturer, or other third party. It is assumed the recipient will perform analytical processing of the data in support of other business processes such as marketing, replenishment, or product development.
This message provides the recipient with detailed information relative to a specific product such as:
- Location of the activity, e.g. sale or product movement.
- Specific parties involved, e.g. name of company sold to.
- Date or period of the activity.
- Activity price, e.g. selling price.
- Activity quantity, e.g. quantity sold.
- Promotion in effect.
- Value of the sales.
- Periodical turnover.
- Additional product information, e.g. product groups or id numbers.
- Identification of market segment or channel of distribution.
- Summarisation of information for various locations, e.g.
sales for all locations in a region.

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.
Due to the high volume of data that will be usually transmitted in the Sales Data Report message, it is highly recommended to use codes for products and locations.
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.
