Bad Acronyms for $600, Alex

Do not laugh. This is no joke.

My company sent out an e-mail titled "February CUM Release". My first thought was, "Now that's a company benefit I can use!" Or maybe someone was just having some Valentine's Day fun (certainly more than me).

A little research and I found this:

Step 12: Verify CUM of Ship-From Customer Items
For each Ship-From Customer Item under CUM Management, verify the CUM shipped quantity against internal shipment records and external systems [...]. Manually verify that:
  • the CUM shipped quantity was calculated accurately based on the CUM Management Rule [...];
  • the CUM shipped quantity matches the external system CUM shipped quantity after CUM Keys are assigned.
Which is from page 31 of this .pdf file.
