I have been working for the past few weeks on creating an EDI interface between Grande Cache Coal Corp and CN Railways to speed up the process of getting trains released from the mine (in NW Alberta.) The project is coming along well. We are now waiting for the Translation software to arrive. Then we can get on with the implementation.

Its been a process of analyzing the business processes, collecting information and specifications, getting the coding and the mappings that will work in this case, selecting and purchasing a package to customize. We are now mid-way through and its fun to work with this again. It did not take long for me to pick up the knowledge, that was a few years ago something that I lived on a daily basis.
