EDICummins Filtration offers Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) to customers who require timely and accurate information to support integrated supply chain management, just-in-time (JIT) and KANBAN manufacturing/inventory systems. Cummins Filtration has the capability of automatically entering EDI orders into our order management system and transmitting electronic packing slips and invoices.

Benefits of EDI Over Manual Processing
Electronically processing order, shipment and invoicing information provides cost-saving benefits to our customers. At Cummins Filtration, we have designed our systems to maximize the benefit of EDI to our customers. These benefits include:
  • Increased transfer speed for order, shipment and invoicing
  • Improved data integrity by reducing manual data-entry errors, discrepancies and misinterpretations
  • Reduced cost of placing orders, receiving shipments and processing invoices
  • Reduced lead times, fulfillment cycles and inventory levels
If you are interested in implementing EDI processes with Cummins Filtration, please contact the Customer Assistance Center in your region for the name and phone number of the EDI coordinator.

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).

Automatic Order Integration (AOI)
Cummins Filtration offers the ability for customers to send purchase orders via email as an alternative to traditional EDI. Customers can send a standard email, or an email with an attached file in varying formats such as an excel file, text file, pdf file, etc. We have the capability of automatically entering these email orders into our order management system. This process provides timely and accurate order entry while eliminating data entry errors or discrepancies.

More About AOI
AOI is the electronic transfer of purchase orders by email without the use of a VAN (Value-added network). Orders can be sent as a standard email or as an email with an attachment. Cummins Filtration supports many different attachment formats such as .xls, .pdf, .txt, .doc. After an initial mapping setup, these orders are automatically translated and entered into our order management system.
