Electronic Data Interchange Decoupled PowerPoint PPT Presentation


Over 95% of all Electronic Business Transactions take place using EDI.Implementing a new ERP system usually requires a new EDI module.Picture yourself in the Indianapolis 500 driving the wining car on the final lap when all of the sudden your engine starts to shutter. The crew radios you to pull over into the pit stop and when you do your worst fear is discovered. You need to replace the engine. Game over…EDI transition is an arduous task that can make or break any company. EDI is one of the KEY modules that needs to be thoroughly thought out at the beginning of the design phase. A “decoupled” approach can seamlessly change any ERP without the disruption of your Electronic Business Transactions.

Electronic Data Interchange Decoupled 

Over 95% of all Electronic Business Transactions take place using EDI. 

Implementing a new ERP system usually requires a new EDI module. 

Picture yourself in the Indianapolis 500 driving the wining car on the final lap when all of the sudden 

your engine starts to shutter.  The crew radios you to pull over into the pit stop and when you do your 

worst fear is discovered.  You need to replace the engine.  Game over… 

EDI transition is an arduous task that can make or break any company.  EDI is one of the KEY modules 

that needs to be thoroughly thought out at the beginning of the design phase. A “decoupled” approach 

can seamlessly change any ERP without the disruption of your Electronic Business Transactions.   

 

 

The top 3 challenges for EDI Implementation: 

1.B2B Integration  

The customer onboarding process is quite intense from the mappings to the required 

documents.  The vendor standards manuals are constantly changing to meet the new 

requirements of the trading partners.  You’re not just trying to hit one moving target, you’re 

trying to hit all the trading partners in a very short time.  Also, If you have the need to change 

your sender/receiver id than you will have to go back to “testing” mode and start all over.   

2.Tightly coupled 

There are so many connections from ERP to EDI it is like being tethered down and no room to 

move.  These connections are like a spider web.  “Coupling, combine’s the contradictory 

concepts of connection and autonomy.” 

3.Lack of visibility 

How do I trace the problem back to a specific step without having to receive the document 

again?  This can be one of the most frustrating tasks for an EDI manager.  Why go back to the 

beginning if I can go back to where the problem occurred and fix from the specific step. 

 

 

The ability to see the risks ahead will better prepare and overcome most challenges and align for a 

successful implementation.   

 

 

Strategy, Tactics and Execution… 


Electronic data interchange decoupled

Now that the strategy is established with key risks, the tactics are clearly defined: 

Align business rules by customer for all aspects of pick, pack and ship 

Remove all unnecessary steps from previous EDI module 

Establish the SLA with the EDI software support team 

Build an alliance with the EDI trading partner support team 

Train, Train, and more training 

The “customer rules” can be aligned and setup one time with Partner Link and you can change 

ERP seamlessly without any disruption. 

The “Decoupled” approach aligns the EDI module autonomous from the ERP   

No need to change the EDI module when implementing a new ERP 

Cloud scalability 

 

 

                                                 

Once all of the pieces of the puzzle are in place the EDI will flow naturally.  A reoccurring task is to 

update the vendor standards manuals for any changes that may take place over the course of time such 

as routing guides DC and Store additions or closings.   

The execution of the EDI solution aligned with the required business rules will allow your EDI process to 

run smoothly along with KPI’s to alert with detailed information. 

You are now prepared to win the EDI race with precision and accuracy.
