IMPLEMENTING ELECTRONIC DATA INTERCHANGE (EDI) - 16 hours
According to a recent Electronic Data Interchange Association estimate,
close to 60,000 companies worldwide have moved numerous applications from
paper-based technology to electronics-based EDI technology. In retail,
distribution, electronics, automotive, pharmaceutical, apparel,
transportation, and other industries, EDI has become the way to do business or
to take your business elsewhere.
This applications-oriented workshop is structured to assist MIS, accounts
payable, accounts receivable, warehouse, transportation, and finance
departments in the successful planning and implementation of EDI with trading
partners. Using case studies to illustrate applications such as order entry,
billing, bar code, shipment, and EFT, the course utilizes the following ANSI
X12 transaction sets: 810, 820, 824, 832, 846, 850, 855, 856, 860, 865, 869,
870, 997, etc. Topics include: EDI envelopes, segments, elements,
and data dictionary; translators, mappers, and interfaces; communications
software; value added network and value added bank; CCD+/CTP/CTX formats;
banks, federal and state agencies; industry associations, publications, and
events; trading partner legal documents; audit procedures; operational
contingencies; EDI administration and coordination; hub and spoke
implementation; trends and implications of EDI; economics of EDI; and barriers
to EDI justification and implementation. COMPANION COURSES: Implementing
Financial EDI/EC Applications or Advanced EDI/EC Architecture or Managing
EDI/EC Projects. PRE-REQUISITE COURSES: None.
ADVANCED EDI/EC ARCHITECTURE - 16 hours
This workshop is a presentation of design and implementation techniques
utilized in large-scale EDI and electronic commerce (EC) projects in banking,
retail, automotive, petroleum, utilities, distribution, aerospace, and other
industries. From a business process re-engineering perspective, several EDI/EC
applications are discussed, including electronic funds transfer (EFT),
evaluated receipt settlement (ERS), vendor management inventory, automatic
replenishment, and JIT.
This workshop is intended for corporate planners, ClOs, AP/AR managers,
business process engineering teams, project managers, information processing
managers, auditors, systems integration and technical teams, EDI
administrators, EDI coordinators, and customer service managers.
Business, technical, and operational parameters are discussed in implementing
the following: bar codes; X.400/X.435/X.500; security; batch, event-driven and
interactive EDI/EC; building and operating your own VAN; electronic document
acknowledgment and reconciliation; concurrent ANSI X12 and EDIFACT; audit and
controls; managing legacy systems; EDI/EC, EDI over Internet; and other
emerging technologies; disaster recovery and other contingencies; and archival
requirements. COMPANION COURSES: Implementing EDI or Managing EDI/EC Projects.
PRE-REQUISITE COURSES: Implementing EDI or equivalent experience.
IMPLEMENTING FINANCIAL EDI/EC APPLICATIONS - 16 hours
According to a recent UC study, 3 years ago, 8 out of 10 new EDI/EC projects
were initiated by purchasing departments. However, during the recent 2 years,
8 out 10 new EDI/EC projects have been initiated by AP, AR, treasury and cash
Based on lessons learned from several large-scale and successful financial
EDI/EC implementations, the course is structured to assist treasury, finance,
AP, AR and purchasing departments in the successful justification, planning,
development, pilot run, full production rollout, and ongoing support of
financial EDI/EC projects. Although the course is focused on the financial
component of an implementation, there will be substantial discussion on the
following subjects: EDI/ACH/EFT services (820, 823, 824, 831, 828, 829, CDX+,
CTX, SWIFT and other formats) from Bank of America, Citibank, Chase Manhattan,
Union Bank, First Chicago, NationsBank and Sterling Commerce; Consolidated
invoices (110, 210, 811, 835, 837, 864 and 980) from Federal Express, UPS,
Airborne Express, Rodeway, Pacific Bell, Southwestern Bell, BellSouth, AT&T,
and health care institutions; Logistic data (856, 861 and 315) from
transportation and freight forwarding companies; Integration with AP/AR,
logistics, inventory management and purchasing applications; FEDI over
Internet; and, re-engineering implications of Financial EDI/EC implementation.
COMPANION COURSES: Implementing EDI or Managing EDI/EC Projects. PRE-REQUISITE
COURSES: Implementing EDI or equivalent experience.
MANAGING EDI/EC PROJECTS - 8 hours
As more business applications make the transition from paper-based to
electronic based media, the task of planning, managing, and supporting these
projects becomes increasingly complex. This workshop examines and presents
project management techniques utilized by companies with successful EDI/EC
The workshop is intended for corporate planners, CFOs, ClOs, controllers,
AP/AR managers, business process engineering teams, project managers,
information processing managers, auditors, systems integration and technical
teams, EDI administrators, and EDI coordinators.
Guidelines for the following are discussed: budget; schedule; job
descriptions; education and training, legal agreement; evaluation and
selection of EDI translator, VAN, security tools; selection of banks for EFT
applications; identifying EDI applications; documentation; trading partner
questionnaire; QA/QC; audit and controls; facilitating EDI implementation;
achieving critical mass; outsourcing; integration with legacy systems;
managing various tiers of EDI/EC trading partners; managing EDI/EC and other
emerging technologies; ANSI X12 and EDIFACT; disaster recovery and other
contingencies; and archival requirements. COMPANION COURSES: Implementing EDI
or Implementing Financial EDI/EC Applications or Advanced EDI/EC Architecture.
PRE-REQUISITE COURSES: Implementing EDI or Implementing Financial EDI/EC
Applications or equivalent experience.
AUDITING EDI/EC IMPLEMENTATIONS - 8 Hours
Most EDI/EC projects are reactive implementations. Consequently, it is the
industry norm to stumble into implementations that have been put together by
"cut and paste" methodology. It is amazing that "mission critical
applications" of major industries and companies increasingly depend on systems
that were put together in a haphazard fashion.
Moreover, despite EDI being more than 20 years old and therefore more matured
than other emerging electronic commerce technologies, most EDI/EC
implementations are only standardized at the intercompany data interchange
level but revert back to paper-based and proprietary methodology at the
With these factors in mind, most EDI/EC implementation have components that
maybe classified into four major categories: process improvement
opportunities; status quo; ticking timebombs; and, failures. This course is
structured to identify, classify and recommend steps in evaluating and
managing these components from the following perspectives: methodology,
control, security, legal, disaster recovery, and business integration.
COMPANION COURSES: Implementing EDI and Managing EDI/EC Projects and Advanced
EDI/EC Architecture. PRE-REQUISITE COURSES: Implementing EDI or Managing
