Friend or Foe? EDI Requirements within the Automotive Supply Chain

Dynamics ERP experience, check. EDI experience, check. Automotive EDI requirements, no check.

The automotive supply chain is not something in which I have much first-hand experience, and so I was all ears when I recently spent the day with Donna Ward, former co-chair of the Automotive Industry Action Group’s Supply Chain Management Project Team. Given Donna’s extensive experience within the automotive industry, she could clearly outline just how critical EDI is to the supply chain, as well the most common EDI challenges companies using Microsoft Dynamics face.
