What is EDI X12?
The EDI X12 standard was developed by the American National Standards Institute Accreditation Standards Council X12. The EDI X12 standard is prevalent in the US and was published in 1979, partly to enable the US auto industry to implement just-in-time manufacturing techniques to better compete globally. The EDI X12 standard has expanded to other industries - especially retail. EDI X12 is published in versions, with the most widely deployed one being the EDI X12 4010 version.
