Abstract : This manual applies to Version 1 of the Apparel Research Network (ARN) Apparel Order Processing Module (AOPM). The AOPM is a PC-based application system that creates or receives electronic orders, shipping documents and invoices for military clothing. It is designed for use at any activity involved in the processing of these orders, including Clothing initial Issue Points (CIIPs), Defense Apparel Manufacturers (DAMs), and the Defense Personnel Support Center (DPSC). After the creation of order, shipping or invoice transaction via the AOPM entry screen, the transaction data is translated to Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) format and transmitted to the intended recipient. At a receiving location, after EDI translation, the AOPM may be used to review and respond to the transaction. This manual describes the transaction entry screen and associated maintenance screens for creating or reviewing inbound or outbound documents related to military clothing orders, including measurement, profile, shipment information, status messages, invoices, and other related documents. Also described are the mapping and translation processes associated with conversion of data to various file formats and the transmission of data to intended recipients.
