IBM Business Transaction Intelligence looks at various key identifiers within the supply chain documents that it processes in order to build a transaction flow. IBM Business Transaction Intelligence identifies five milestones to which it associates these identifiers: order, order acknowledgment, shipment, invoice, and payment. In terms of key identifiers, order documents have purchase order numbers and shipment documents have bill Of lading, PRO, manifest, and ship numbers. The identifiers for invoice and payment documents are invoice numbers, order numbers, and payment trace numbers. IBM Business Transaction Intelligence puts a flow together by cross referencing these key identifiers. It also uses a default implementation that allows it to extract these identifiers from the supply chain documents.
