And we both use BPCS, the same version.

Yes EDI is a lot of work.  However every project is cost justified.  I
agree that it would be nice that if we added a new trading partner we
should be able to click on a button and it is done.  It's that pesky
mapping to our real databases that is the real work.  However the payback
is there  - if you're not afraid of a little work.

Rob & Al work for competitors in the same industry.

3 people full time managing something that should manage itself ... that we
install, and if there is a new requirement, the end user just takes a menu
option & fills in a field to say to start using this or that feature
according to rules based software,
confirms for me that our industry is not yet ready to get the advantages
promised by e-commerce & the problems are with the industry customers, not
with the technological state-of-art

a bit reminiscent of ERP & CRM,
where many many big companies spend lots of bucks trying to install &
totally
screw it up because a high level of management thinks of these things as
being technical solutions where it does not matter what the humans do, when
in fact what the humans do are the major cost drivers to the whole idea.
