The VDA 4915 message represents Just-in-time information that is sent to suppliers by their customers. These messages follow the VDA standards and are supplement documents for electronic purchasing processes based on delivery schedules commonly used in the automotive industry.
The VDA 4915 serves a similar purpose as the EDIFACT DELJIT message, however the VDA 4915 focuses on automotive requirements. The legacy VDA 4915 message is the predecessor of the VDA 4985 message for exchanging Just in Time delivery information.
In order to further reduce stock levels and therefore exchanging precise delivery information manufacturing companies send demand information not just on a daily basis but even more precisely on a time slot level.
The VDA 4915 message is crucial when fulfilling the Just-in-time (JIT) process of manufacturing companies. Because of that it is also referred as “Just-in-time”- or JIT message. In JIT environments VDA 4915 messages are used as complement to the delivery planning which is sent by a VDA 4905 messages. The VDA 4915 messages is very frequently needed to communicate exact shipping times and quantities.
The VDA standard is defined by the German Association of the Automotive Industry (“Verband der Automobilindustrie (VDA) e.V.”) and the standard when exchanging EDI messages with automotive OEMs in the EU. In the NAFTA region commonly ANSI message types are used more often. In the Asian region and also in the EU EDIFACT is a wide spread standard which is also applied in many different industries. The ANSI X12 862 and the EDIFACT DELJIT message and are used in particular for exchanging just-in-time demands.
The legacy VDA 4915 message is the predecessor of the VDA 4985 message for exchanging planning schedules in the EU region.
When moving to the latest VDA standards like VDA 4985 and JIT, you need a very reliable EDI operation. Only suppliers who can guarantee a high delivery quality are eligible for serving JIT processes in a supply chain. The ability of automatically processing VDA 4985 messages is one key factor to achieve high supplier ratings in the automotive industry.
