The SAP system creates purchase orders in MM. The purchase orders are tranfered to the EDI subsystem as IDocs. The EDI subsystem translates the IDoc into an EDI message and sends the status report belonging to that IDoc to SAP. The EDI subsystem than re-translates the EDI message into an IDoc and sends the IDoc to SAP. The SAP system receives customer orders in SD. The IDocs are processed and customer orders are confirmed by order confirmations. The order confirmations are transfered to the EDI subsystem as IDocs. The EDI subsystem translates the IDoc into an EDI message and sends the status report belonging to that IDoc to SAP. The EDI subsystem than re-translates the EDI message into an IDoc and sends the IDoc to SAP. The SAP system receives purchase order acknowledgements related to the original purchase orders in MM. This closes the test cycle! The test cycle is finally evaluated by the application that originated the whole process by compare of the content of the original purchase order with that of the purchase order acknowledgement.
