Planning for EDI


EDI projects benefit from the implementation of several important steps:

o Formation of the project team – A dedicated project team is required to ensure project success.

o Business needs analysis – Determine your business objectives. Analyse your business needs to identify areas where EDI will return the greatest benefits.

o Requirements definition – Carefully define the requirements, both internal and external, and understand the costs to ensure that there are no expensive surprises. Focus on your business objectives.

o Project implementation – Pick a pilot project for the first implementation, and then proceed to full implementation.
