"Send" in IMDS
In IMDS, there are four possibilities to submit a MDS:
"send": the MDS will be sent to 1 recipient
"propose": the MDS can be sent to several recipients
"internal": the MDS will only be available for internal use only
"Publish": the MDS will be available for everybody.
Volvo requires that the supplier use send for each MDS (i.e.: "propose", "internal" and "publish" are not allowed for submitting a MDS to Volvo) to the recipient(s) defined in section 4.3.2., even if the part concerned will be delivered to several companies of the Volvo group
Before sending the MDS, the supplier has to assign it to the request. The MDS request status becomes “completed” when the MDS is accepted.
