  • Mapping a Customers EDI field in to and then out of SAP Customers that transact Orders to you via an EDI X12 850 often need you to send certain, customer specific, fields back to them on subsequent documents. This is often a requirement at both the header and item levels of the order. A common example of a header field would be the department number. It makes sense for the customer to have the department number returned on subsequent documents but we don't have any use for that number in our SAP system other than to store the details and pass it to subsequent documents. In this example I am going to use the Internal Vendor number as my example at the header level and Customer's PO item number as ...

  • Looking for EDI experts to contribute to EDIGenie.COM "Hey there folks - I have created many informational portals and communities over the past 20 years (yes, that is correct - 20 years!!!) - My first web portal was scripted in raw HTML and hosted on a Unix server where page views were stored by means of a UNIX script accessing a file on the file system...

No sales pitches, just raw content ...

  • EDI and the Internet of Things (IoT) I read this great post by Faith Lamprey on how EDI is very suited to connecting to the Internet Of Things...With devices and gadgets being Internet, RFID and GPS enabled you can imagine there would be enough information to control every aspect of that device. Faith uses the vending machine as an example. Normal IoT says that a vending machine can take payments and sense the preference of drinks that the current user is looking for. You can offer discounts and provide up-sell or cross-sell opportunities... So how does EDI play a role? Well the vending machine can also manage it's own inventory and potentially place an order for items that have reached their safety stock ...

  • What Wikipedia Won't Tell You About EDI I found this interesting blog post written by Kristen Kearns, Manager of EDI Services for Aurora Technologies.

The theory of EDI with it's communication protocols, standards, elements, segments, separators is all good and fine but at some stage it runs in to the brick wall called REALITY!!!To summarize the points that Kristen has made I have compiled the following bullet points:Wikipedia tells you about EDI standardsReality = Standards are a "suggested ruleset" that are loosely followed by those implementing them - Improper use of segments and elements are commonplaceWikipedia tells you about ...
