Abstract : This edition of the Logistics Management Institute's A Guide to EDI Translation Software updates and expands the information presented in our previous versions. The guide identifies and provides details on commercially available electronic data interchange (EDI) translation software packages, EDI support products, and EDI products developed exclusively in response to Federal and Department of Defense (DoD) procurement initiatives. The guide was first created in 1989 to aid Federal Government activities, including Military Departments and Defense agencies, in procuring software for their EDI programs. However, commercial organizations with an EDI program have also found the guide useful. The guide provides an introduction to EDI translation software, identifies a variety of EDI software packages, assesses the key features of each package, details a list of functions and features that could be contained within a particular software package, and highlights those features that we believe are required to meet the EDI needs of Federal government and DoD programs in specific operating environments. The guide also includes a short overview on selecting EDI translation software.
