The ECM adapter is ECM606, which includes programs:
ECM606B4 Outbound Advanced Ship Notice Transport
ECM606B7 Outbound ASN Item Summary
ECM606B8 Outbound ASN Pkg Hdr Summary
ECM606B5 Outbound Advanced Ship Notice Posting

We use an order class that includes the document ECM ASN (which calls ECM506B) tied to the Ship Confirm step.

The rest of your setup in ECM is similar to other EDI transactions (linking your trading partners, entities, etc. to the ECA, defining any custom ECA functions you need, and so forth).

Since we need to get the ASNs sent out immediately when the order is shipped, we put a trigger on the TPEC file to execute a custom program that checks for any ASN records in the TPEC and if there are any it calls a program that runs ECM and then calls our EDI translation software to create and send the EDI transaction.

Hope that helps.

What I'm looking for is a third party, finite capacity, production
scheduling system which runs on the iSeries.  The intent is to interface it
to their ERP.

I posted the inquiry here because I thought there might be some BPCS
installs that were using such a package.


With that being the case, this actually might be better served by
inquiring on the regular list Midrange-L.
