EDIFICE

 

EDIFICE represents a B2B group in the high-tech and electronics industries in Europe. This group plays a significant role in promoting and advancing Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) within these specific industries.

EDIFICE is a B2B group composed of companies in the high-tech and electronics industries in Europe, aiming to facilitate electronic data interchange and efficient collaboration among its members. The group promotes the use of the EDIFACT EDI standard as a subset tailored to the specific needs of these industries to facilitate communication and commercial transactions.

Use Case:

To gain a better understanding of how EDIFICE can be applied in practice, let’s consider a use case in the electronics industry. Imagine a company specializing in electronic components that wants to place an order with a supplier of electronic materials from another European country. By utilizing the EDIFACT standard adapted by EDIFICE, the electronic components company can transmit a structured electronic order, containing detailed information about the desired products, quantities, prices, and delivery details to the supplier in another country. The supplier receives this electronic order, processes it, and provides an electronic response confirming the acceptance of the order and providing delivery-related information. Thus, the EDIFACT electronic data interchange, adapted by EDIFICE, facilitates commercial transactions and collaboration among companies in the electronics industry.

Example of script code:

from ediconnect import EDIConnection

edi_conn = EDIConnection(“supplier_address”)
edi_conn.authenticate(“username”, “password”)

order = {
“product”: “Component1”,
“quantity”: 100,
“price”: 5.99,
“delivery_date”: “2023-07-10”
}

edi_conn.send_message(“EDIFACT_EDIFICE_ORDERS”, order)

Best Practices:

  1. Implementing the EDIFACT EDIFICE Standard Subset: Ensure you use the subset of the EDIFACT standard adapted by EDIFICE, which is optimized for the specific requirements and needs of the high-tech and electronics industries.
  2. Data Testing and Validation: Perform necessary tests and validations to ensure the correctness of data structure and content according to the EDIFACT standard adapted by EDIFICE.
  3. Collaboration among EDIFICE Members: Actively participate in the EDIFICE group and collaborate with other members to share knowledge and continuously improve electronic data interchange processes.
