Abstract : A growing form of interaction between organizational information systems is the use of Electronic Data Interchange (EDI). Conceptually, the scope of EDI could be extended beyond transmitting business documents between customers and suppliers. Specifically, it should be possible through a fully integrated EDI/CIM system to enable a customer to interact with their suppliers using structured messages, requesting information about the quality assurance test results of the products at the supplier's manufacturing plant in a timely manner. Trading Partner PC version 4.40 software from TSI International was purchased and installed at the CRAMTD Demonstration Site. Key business transactions requiring the support of the plant Oracle database were identified and scripts written to integrate these EDI transactions with the database. It is recommended that EDI be continued as an aspect of the Demonstration Site and that in concert with DPSC Procurement activities, the Demonstration Site also undertake a proactive role in supporting Combat Ration Producers becoming Trading Partners to DPSC.
