EDIFACT - A global approach for the automotive industry
The global nature of the Automotive Industry encourages a common approach to the EDI message standards in use, and consequently the adoption of a globally accepted message standard - EDIFACT. When exploited to its full potential, EDIFACT can facilitate new methods of conducting business, from Just-In-Time (JIT) in the production chain to the payment of suppliers. A comprehensive strategy should define a company's ambitions. These ambitions should line up with those of the Automotive Industry from every viewpoint - from application and technical requirements to trading partners and timescales. What is required is a strategy for advanced communications that recognizes EDIFACT, to ensure the company's software is ready for the changes that are inevitable within the Industry.
