We are in need of a 2000 words survey on the EDIFACT protocol - an EDI (electronic data interchange) standard for communicating information on logistic matters (such as orders, issuing of materials, etc.) - developed by the United Nations.
The review is not purely technical, but should explain the following matters to business managers, organizational consultants and decision makers who are not logistics or IT experts (so more of a general review rather than a details of the transaction structures).
You have to refer to the following aspects:
1) What is EDIFACT
2) How it is used mainly by the UN agencies, but also by other public organizations and private companies.
3) Why did the UN need to develop its own protocol/standard of EDI, rather than using other EDI protocols that already existed? What aspects and functionalities other EDI protocols did not fulfill for the UN?
4) Who motivated the development of the EDIFACT in the UN? (was it the ITU?)
5) Deadline is in 48 hours.
Please describe your experience in similar writing assignments and attach writing examples.
Please use academic citations to support your findings and arguments and put reference list at the end of the essay.
I think that the book that you can download from here can also help (it is in a PDF file-please refer to Chapter 3):
$5 AUD for 500 words.
$20 AUD for 2000 words.
Long term opportunity for those who`ll prove themself in this project.
