AutoEDI (Electronic Data Interchange)
EDI promises to make our lives easier.  Companies could exchange information quickly and accurately.  AXIOM has an entire EDI suite designed for this purpose.  However, in reality, it is a BEAR to set up.  SMART has a suite of EDI tools that make it a bit easier to do just that.  For example, international conventions specify that EDI form #850 is to be used for Purchase Orders.  So one would expect that a customer would generate an 850 form and that AXIOM could take what the customer provides and immediately understand it and update AXIOM accordingly.  Nothing could be further from the truth.
Here is what a typical customer EDI Form #850 looks like opened in Word Pad:                
However AXIOM cannot read this.  AXIOM needs the same data but as an XML file.  This is what AXIOM needs to see:
I equate it to translating a document from Spanish to Klingon!  AutoEDI does just that.                
In order to do this for 850 forms and associated 830 (order schedule) forms, AutoEDI has to move information along these paths:                
This was a big effort, but it is now working successfully at C&M.
