EDI: Common questions and answers

Jun 16, 17 EDI: Common questions and answers

Posted by in Software

Summary: EDI is the act of exchanging documents and communicating electronically with trading partners. Implementation is not difficult, and most organizations should start with the web-based EDI approach before moving on to EDI software. EDI, also known as Electronic Data Interchange is the process of exchanging communications between two trading partners. Here are some common questions from people who are new to EDI: Who uses EDI? Nearly all major industries use EDI, such as retail, finance, automotive, and industrial. Any industry that places or fulfills orders with trading partners will benefit from EDI. What is a trading partner? In EDI parlance, a trading partner is any organization that you either sell to or buy from which requires the exchange of documents. EDI is an electronic exchange of documents from one company to another. What are the types of EDI solutions? There are three EDI solutions available: EDI software, web based EDI and EDI service bureau. EDI software is the method with the most integration with your back office systems. Web-based EDI is a browser based system that involves data entry and does not provide much integration with existing systems. A service bureau conducts most of the EDI operations on your behalf. Is it difficult to implement EDI? Implementing EDI does not have to be difficult. You can treat the implementation as an evolving process and start with a web-based EDI approach and then move on to software that integrates with your in-house systems. The system can grow in complexity as your business and trading partners grow. Written by Act Data Services, Inc. 1-800-ACT-DATA. They are an electronic data interchange (EDI) provider for retail and supplier environments and will handle all aspects of the implementation including vendor...

An In-Depth Understanding on the Various Models of Turbine Engines

May 19, 17 An In-Depth Understanding on the Various Models of Turbine Engines

Posted by in Technolgoy

Summary: Turbine engine systems have come a long way since they were first developed. One of the most commonly used propulsion systems in the aviation industry is the aircraft turbine engine. Now, these engines vary in design, with each having its own requirements for maintenance and aircraft engine overhaul. This guide is designed to detail all the specifics of each type of turbine engine so you can thoroughly differentiate one from another. The Turbojet Engine One of the most simplest forms of aircraft turbine engines, the turbojet consists of four sections: the compressor, combustion chamber, turbine section, and exhaust. Now, turbojets were developed prior to World War II in Germany and England. When the gas turbine start up process begins, air is passed through the combustion chamber at lightning fast speed where the fuel inlet and igniter is located. The turbine then causes thrust from the accelerated gases creating a whirlwind. The Turboprop Engine Turboprops drive propellers through a reduction gear, which essentially provides optimal propeller performance even at slower rpm speeds. What this means is that fuel efficiency substantially increases, as well as performance at slow airspeeds. Most small commuter aircrafts like cargo planes and agricultural machines utilize these engines. The propellers tend to function at a lower efficiency as the speed increases, making them ideal for planes that do not require a vast amount of speed. The Turbofan Engine The turbofan is essentially a combination of both the turbojet and turboprops best features. The engine diverts a secondary flow of air around the combustion chamber, which creates an additional thrust. Now, these engines are the most modern versions of aircraft turbine engines and are often found in fighter planes and aircraft that require high-speed transport. They continue to be technologically advanced as new inventions come in, but they still perform their duty admirably – as opposed to having a plane that requires a constant ground power unit on hand at every stop. The Afterburning Turbojet These engines are predominantly found in fighter...

Power Wherever You Are

Apr 12, 17 Power Wherever You Are

Posted by in Technolgoy

Getting it to start the first time is always a problem many aircraft and marine mechanics face, especially when dealing with older craft and more power sensitive vehicles. However, with the advent of modern technology in battery pack design, many of the problems faced by mechanics decades ago are now problems best left in history books. With powerful lithium gpu or ground power units, starting a big vessel or powerful turbine helicopter is as easy as a snap and click. With lithium technology present in modern 28 volt battery pack systems, you can have the same amount of starting power and capacity as that of a large array of lead acid batteries at a mere fraction of the weight and bulk. Gone are the days of lead acid water testing, specific gravity balancing, and cell-cycling, as these new self-contained lithium cells are maintenance free and need no outside intervention. Checking up on the lithium cells are as easy as clicking a test button on your power pack and the cells are individually tested and health state reports are either shown on an LED panel, or LCD screen. Using these self-contained systems also allows for minimal user intervention during cycling and battery balancing so you can spend less time worrying about your power pack, and more time working on more important things. Charging lithium technology battery packs are also as simple as plugging them into a mains outlet and allowing the computer controlled charger to fully charge and maintain the lithium batteries....

Deciding Whether or Not a Refurbished Smartphone Is In Your Best Interest

Apr 11, 17 Deciding Whether or Not a Refurbished Smartphone Is In Your Best Interest

Posted by in Mobile, Technology

Written by: Omar Amanat Summary: Smartphones are all the rage today. But, if you want a deep discount, you could consider buying a refurbished phone as an alternate investment. The concept of purchasing used or refurbished cell phones can either be a match made in heaven or fill you with the unfulfilling feeling of not having a brand new smartphone in your hand. So, is purchasing a “revived” smartphone actually worth it? Here are some opinions that will help you lean towards buying or passing on a refurbished model. The Right Time to Buy a Refurbished Cell Phone As you may already know, refurbished phones are obviously sold at a discounted rate. A used cell phone will almost always be cheaper than a new cell phone. If it’s not, well, you’re being scammed. Remember, in the world of consumer electronics, you get what you pay for. If paying for something that someone else already used and then returned, a second-hand phone will come with a relatively steep price drop. Another reason why a refurbished phone might right for you is the eco-friendly nature of making this decision. And, you can never go wrong when it comes to karma points. Another particular reason you might want to invest in a refurbished phone is when your old model crashes and dies. Sure, it may be out of style, but it’s the model that you’ve learned to love and created a special bond over time. And, purchasing a new one would just sever the relationship you had with that specific model. When Buying Refurbished Phones Goes Wrong If you’re the type of individual that upgrades to the newest model every year or so to reap the benefits of the newest features, buying a refurbished phone may not be in your best interest. Even if your purchase feels relatively new, it may not be fulfilling enough for you to be satisfied with your purchase. And, there’s nothing like going into a store and unboxing a “sterile” smartphone straight...

There have been many advances in the realm of teleconferencing over the past few years. The cost of web conferencing systems has decreased, while the quality of video has made dramatic improvements. While businesses have discovered that teleconferencing can help them save time and money, everyday people are also finding that this technology can help them stay in touch better than ever. While there are many important events that family members would love to attend, distance and scheduling doesn’t always allow people to be there for their loved ones. However, many families have learned that video conferencing is an ideal solution for those who couldn’t otherwise see the weddings, graduations, and other landmark moments in their family. Such communication options have also allowed soldiers who are stationed overseas to remain in contact with families back home, allowing them the opportunity to see their children grow up and celebrate birthdays and other special moments. Nothing beats being there in person, but for some, teleconferencing is the next best thing....

The Latest Tire Technology

The U.S. has so many various road surfaces that it makes it a serious challenge to test any tires thoroughly. A combination of computer simulation and rubber-to-road testing are required to adequately determine the quality of any new tires manufactured today. Advanced tires should always live up to these same standards, regardless of the brand. When a technology is invented, the tire manufacturer is morally obligated, and often legally obligated, to thoroughly test tires under real road conditions and on actual road surfaces. If they do not, many lives are at stake, including yours. It is best to familiarize yourself with such new tire technologies as Tweel Airless Tires, Self-Inflating Tires (SIT), Infinicoil, Self-supporting Tires (SST), Air Maintenance Technology (AMT), and many more. If you do not know what the latest acronyms mean, anyone can take advantage of you while selling you tires. This is one good reason to buy tires at an online store, such as tirerush.com or any of many other online tire shops. Then if you run into an unknown term you can look it up. Tire technology is a fantastic aspect of driving, so do not overlook it by taking it for granted. Every technology, whether for safety, durability, or comfort must be verified prior to the tires hitting the market. Some such technologies are designed for specific purposes. Three-ply polyester casting contributes to durability, load capacity maintenance, and handling. You can find this technology in Toyo tires. Asymmetric tire design can be found in Dunlop tires. They help the car perform well whether going into a curve or heading in a straight...
