2 Traditional Paper-Based Business

3 Electronic Data Interchange Trans Global Logistics

4 EDI Standard The ANSI ASC X12 Standards The X12 standard defined a set of documents, which referred as transaction sets. The common documents and their corresponding transaction set numbers: 850 P.O, 810 Invoice, 855 P.O.

The green area “BSN*02* “shows a complete segment. The blue area “0926” shows a single element. The red area "ST" denotes a Segment ID. Structure of EDI Transaction

Each segment ends with a character called a segment terminator Each segment ends with a character called a segment terminator Each transmission can be broken down into five distinct areas: Each transmission can be broken down into five distinct areas: Communications Transport Protocol, Interchange Control Wrap (ISA & IEA) Functional Group Wrap (GS & GE) Transaction Set Wrap (ST & SE), and the body of the transaction A transaction can also be broken down into four distinct areas: envelope, header, detail, and summary informationA transaction can also be broken down into four distinct areas: envelope, header, detail, and summary information Structure of EDI Transaction

7 How EDI Work 1. Preparation of electronic documents Collection of information and data. For example HAWB, Packing List…etc. 2. Outbound translation Translate the database into a standard format according to the specification of the corresponding document.Translate the database into a standard format according to the specification of the corresponding document.

Each file should be route to the appropriate e- mail boxes according to the destination set in the file.Each file should be route to the appropriate e- mail boxes according to the destination set in the file. 4.

10 Web EDI Less expensive to implement Based on ubiquitous browser technology and formats

11 Web EDI Example Trans Global Logistics

12 EDI Translator EDI translators are used to interface the files received in standard format with internal applications. Translators provide for scheduling of processes, mapping, and communications. TGAX currently uses STX for DOS and GENTRAN Server for NT Gentran: Server for Windows NT Electronic commerce solution deployable in WINS NT /2000 client/server environment Provide a graphical user interface Majors components include mapping utilities, partner configuration utility, data translator, message management subsystems, process control.
