Micron supports the RosettaNet standard, using both versions (1.1 and 2.0) of the RosettaNet Implementation Framework (RNIF). We try to implement specific versions of the RosettaNet Partner Interface Processes (PIPs) and, if we do not have a specific PIP implemented, we usually implement the most current validated PIP version.
RosettaNet Partner Interface Processes
2A12 - Distribute Product Master (inbound from e-hub)
3A6 - Distribute Order Status (inbound from e-hub)
3B2 - Advance Ship Notice (inbound from e-hub)
3A4 - PO/PO Response Message (customer-initiated to Micron)
3A7 - Notify of Purchase Order Update (Micron-initiated to customer)
3A8 - Request Purchase Order Change (customer-initiated to Micron)
3A9 - Request Purchase Order Cancellation (customer-initiated to Micron)

3C4 - Notify of Invoice Reject (customer-initiated to Micron)
3B2 - Advance Ship Notice (Micron-initiated to customer)
EDI Transmission Protocol
Micron sends EDI documents via standard protocols using these value-added networks: ICC and IBM Global Service (Advantis). We use other connectivity methods as well, including encrypted SMTP, secure FTP, and HTTP/S (primarily for RosettaNet exchanges).
Transmissions occur every 15 minutes, 24 hours a day. Additional transmission times can easily be added as circumstances warrant.
Steps to Implementation
The following are typical steps taken when Micron begins exchanging electronic data with a new trading partner.
- Micron receives an implementation guide from a trading partner.
- Micron's Connectivity team contacts the trading partner's connectivity coordinator to set up a trading partnership and coordinate the transmission and receipt of test documents.
- Micron receives a test document from the partner and responds with the necessary acknowledgments.
- Once both parties agree everything is working properly, parallel testing with electronic transactions and paper documents may begin.
- Micron ensures necessary legal agreements have been signed and returned to the trading partner.
- Paper documents are replaced with electronic documents (full production).
Lead Times for Full Production
For all types of exchanges (X.12, EDIFACT, and RosettaNet), completion of the implementation, from initial discussion to full production, averages one month from the time the project has been reviewed and approved by Micron’s project house to the time resources have been assigned. (Implementation time is longer for larger projects.) If, during the course of testing, the project requirements change drastically or new requirements are added, another review by the project house and rejustification of resources may be necessary.
