and implementation steps for the Collaboration Managed
Inventory Minimum/Maximum. (CMI Min/Max) methodology.
The CMI Min/Max methodology represents one major
process type in the family of consumption-based
replenishment systems. This document sets a standard for
the overall CMI Min/Max methodology and corresponding
applications. The ultimate goal is to enable global,
standardized use of CMI Min/Max applications from different
software providers and marketplaces.
Whether the business process involves quality, production
tracking, inventory accounting, equipment monitoring, or
other manufacturing activities, there is a common
information technology infrastructure that needs to be 1 06/01/2008

situation, the JAIF recommendation serves to guide future
investment and development so that collectively, domestic
and joint venture companies can more toward and realize
the benefits of the JAIF B2B messaging recommendation.
