Abstract : This report contains detailed estimates of the volumes of EDI traffic that will be generated by the 15 EDI projects identified in the Defense Transportation EDI Implementation Plan developed by the United States Transportation Command. Those estimates are needed to identify an EDI telecommunications network capable of supporting Defense transportation's EDI program. This report shows the EDI operating concept and estimated telecommunications volumes for each project. The 15 EDI projects are estimated to involve over 220 million transactions totaling 149 gigabytes of characters transmitted annually. Three of the fifteen projects-Movement Requests, Shipment Status, and Cartier Payment-account for more than 75 percent of all transactions and 68 percent of all characters.
