Event Series Event Series (See All)

16. April @ 09:00 17:00 CEST

What has changed compared to previous messages? And what should you pay attention to?

Business partners in the automotive industry typically use the VDA recommendation 4984 Global DELFOR for the data exchange of delivery schedules and call-offs, and in some cases also detailed call-offs. Recently, the Global DELFOR message was adapted to meet the current requirements of the automotive industry, so that it replaces and updates the previous messages. This VDA Recommendation defines in detail which data on scheduling agreements and delivery schedules must be admitted and which data may be transmitted. Are you interested in finding out the changes between the “old” and the new VDA messages? Which changes require special attention?

Many OEMs and suppliers have contributed their know-how of delivery processes and information in order to modernise the VDA DELFOR Recommendation. Furthermore, the new recommendation has been harmonised with the global EDI messages of the automotive supply chain. As a result, an EDIFACT-based, up-to-date recommendation is ready for implementation by the automotive industry and the automotive suppliers. The new Global DELFOR now better accounts for the requirements of the globalized economy and makes processes more transparent and flexible.

The new message replaces VDA 4905 & 4915

The VDA Recommendation for the data transmission of delivery schedules replaces the VDA Recommendations 4905 and 4915 as well as various variants. In the case of VW this means the replacement of even eight “old” VDA messages, thus reducing complexity and offering savings potential for all parties involved. The application area of the DELFOR message includes the transmission of scheduling agreements and delivery schedules as well as JIT delivery schedules via EDI with EDIFACT.

Are you planning to implement VDA 4984 Global DELFOR for the transmission of scheduling agreement data via EDI in the near future and adapting it to your requirements? To support your implementation tasks and as an introduction to the VDA 4984 Global Delivery Forecast, GEFEG offers the following 1-day training, which is aimed at planners and implementers who are getting started with the planning of this message and / or are interested in the differences to previously used messages.
