EDI in the Automotive Industry Automotive
For over 45 years, the automobile industry has been using EDI to exchange data electronically.
The German automobile industry uses the VDA standard for transmitting EDI data. The Automobile Industry Association (Verband der Automobilindustrie – VdA) created this standard in cooperation with the vehicle industry, suppliers, and IT companies.
At the same time, global EDI messages have slowly begun to replace the old VDA and EDIFACT formats in order to better serve increasing worldwide company interconnectedness. This development is also encouraged by the VdA.
EDI LINE now supports the new global EDI messages – in addition to the VDA standard – and is very well positioned for the future. Ours CAR LINE industry solution offers a complete automotive solution for »Sage« users.
Nowadays, it is increasingly uncommon to exchange data storage devices (CD/DVD/USB drives) for EDI data. Instead, the following methods are used for fast communication:
- X.400 (Telebox X400)
- OFTP / Odette
EDI LINE can process any type of transmitted data.
EDI LINE’s core function is data conversion. The software ensures that data can be imported and exported, thereby ensuring the frictionless exchange of data between your own ERP solution and a foreign system.
To transmit data (communication), established standard solutions from other suppliers are used. These solutions are not part of the standard EDI LINE license and must be licensed separately.
Applicability Statement 2 (AS2) is a standard governing secure message transport over the Internet. This standard was specially developed for E-commerce. Today, AS2 is one of the most used procedures for secure and reliable data transport.
The Odette File Transport Protocol (OFTP) is a network protocol for direct electronic data transmission between two communication partners. It was developed by the company Odette International.
X.400 is an email system based on the OSI model and an alternative to Internet email. The standard was released in 1984 by CCITT (today’s ITU). X.400 is often called a Message Handling System (MHS). X.400 is one of the most popular communication forms used for professional electronic data exchange, after AS2.
In Germany, X.400 is often known by its old brand name Telebox400 from the German Postal Service. Its successor, German Telekom, has renamed it BusinessMail X.400.
