Top 5 How-Tos for Successful EDI Projects

Very often, an EDI project is planned using the provided EDI documentation of the partner, especially if you have to deal with big companies. However, do not expect too much: This type of documentation can be used for a rough time planning, but it is useless for an implementation. Why this? Have you ever seen a documentation that is 100% up-to-date and 100% complete? The answer is “No.”

This is why it is best to request and wait for example data from your EDI trading partner. This data should also fit to your company’s master data like your items or customers to make implementation and testing much easier. This way, you just saved a lot of adjustments or even a second implementation if the documentation was bad.

Very often, documentation is not complete or not up-to-date.
