Component documentation JIT Outbound Locate the document in its SAP Library structure


You use this component if you, as a system supplier of OEMs, receive and supply just-in-time calls inbound. You can use the JIT Outbound component to pass on received JIT calls inbound directly to your suppliers.

The processes and functions of the JIT Outbound component are very similar to those of the JIT Inbound component and were developed to complement this component.

JIT Inbound was developed around the requirements of the Automotive industry and supports the two following types of JIT call:

You, as system supplier, use the sequenced JIT calls outbound to call parts for a particular vehicle from your suppliers. The information for the relevant components from the inbound, sequenced JIT call is copied directly to the outbound, sequenced JIT call and is transferred to the suppliers. An example of an outbound, sequenced JIT call can be found here.

This summarized JIT call is either generated from the system’s automatic production supply or you can create it manually and transfer it to your suppliers.


JIT Outbound supports the business aims of the JIT process; for example it helps reduce lead times, optimize costs and avoids picking and storing in the process.

Implementation considerations

The way in which data is retained and managed in JIT Outbound allows you to deal with the usual large order volume in the Automotive industry.

The call structure and call control enables you to adjust JIT Outbound to suit your business process. The process is automated to a large extent.

The processing of JIT calls with Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) corresponds to the relevant norms and standards of VDA4916, EDIFACT, Odette and NC866.
