Texas Instruments Inc has completed a new centralised programme for Electronic Data Interchange within its worldwide network. The technique eliminates paper documents and enables Texas and its business partners to send data directly through an electronic link in standardised formats, and business information such as purchasing, shipping, inventory and marketing are all supported. The new programme spans all Texas divisions worldwide. With the growing acceptance of standards by business and government, the company says that in 1987, it began centralising Electronic Data Interchange under one systems group. Many of its internal applications have been modified to interface with the system, and purchasing, traffic, marketing, shipping, accounts receivable, accounts payable and others are all now EDI-ready and the company intends to support the entire range of EDI transaction types: it is also working on programs to allow the exchange of engineering and design data and graphics. The system supports most major formats, such as ANSI X12 and EDIfact.
