More About EDI
EDI is the electronic transfer of business data conforming to a recognized standard; each business document is defined by a transaction set within the standard. Cummins Filtration supports the standards defined by the American National Standard Institute (ANSI) and by the United Nations Electronic Data Interchange for Administration, Commerce and Transport (UN/EDIFACT). We have implemented the primary transaction sets within each standard. Electronic communication of data files is supported through interconnected value-added networks (VAN).
