PapiNet makes paper trade more efficient

the global economic structure is undergoing rapid changes, and the global trade competition is becoming more intense. The global manufacturing industry will transform its operating processes through information technology, strengthen the integration of upstream and downstream supply chains, and improve the quality of customer service. From procurement, production to sales, it will become a real-time network. In other words, business competition has changed from a single point war to a three-dimensional war connecting time and space. Therefore, enterprises must strengthen the application of e-commerce in order to survive in the changing environment and competition in the future

the paper industry also hopes to improve the response speed of manufacturers to the market, reduce management and marketing costs and increase market competitiveness through the real-time nature of e-commerce. At present, many industries have adopted new industrial standards, which can not only meet the requirements of completely flexible data format and define the content of data exchange, but also standardize the process of data exchange. The European Paper Industry Alliance (CEPI) is committed to developing a general standard papiNet based on XML

what is papiNet Standard

papiNet standard is an international e-commerce standard in the field of paper and forestry products, which is used to standardize and unify the information exchange between various trading partners engaged in the sales, purchase and transportation of paper and forestry products. The standard includes a series of electronic documents, defines general electronic documents and terms related to paper and forestry products, and enables trading partners to conduct real-time e-commerce activities with the help of interconnection. In this way, trading partners such as paper makers and paper chemical suppliers will not be restricted by different technical standards of various countries. These industries will establish a unified channel for human trade in the world for the first time, perhaps Jinchengli

at present, many internationally renowned publishers, printing enterprises and paper suppliers have adopted papiNet standards for e-commerce activities, such as axelspringer Verlag, brown printing, Burda, Burgo, Holmen paper, international paper, M-real, news international newpage, Quad graphics, Sappi, Sodra, stora ENS UPM Kymmene, Weyerhaeuser and other companies

the goal of papiNet

the standard of papiNet is to ensure timely, efficient and effective communication on the basis of ensuring the efficient operation of the supply chain, avoid expensive and value-added activities, ensure faster and broader information connectivity, and avoid one-time business contact. The purpose of XML based Papin unloading et standard is to improve the efficiency and accuracy of paper and forestry products transactions and reduce operating costs

the papiNet standard improves the operation rate of the paper supply chain through the following measures to reduce costs:

(1) cooperate with each other

(2) documented standard business processing

(3) improve communication efficiency

(4) reduce the cost of electronic communication

the papiNet standard improves the efficiency of transactions and market activities through the following measures:

(1) documented standard business processing

(2) support standard XML information

(3) reliable data definitions, general terms and formats

(4) real time information exchange through the network

the papiNet standard can be jointly operated and used by the following groups:

(1) between paper and forestry trading partners

(2) among trading partners in other industries

the papiNet standard is open, free and readily available to reduce greenhouse gas emissions:

(1) the papiNet standard emphasizes B2B (business to business enterprise to enterprise) e-commerce model information exchange

(2) users of papiNet standard will benefit from fully documented information and a large number of professional terms

(3) in order to help users understand how to use each information, the papiNet standard specifically determines a series of business rules, business scenario simulation and document examples

benefits brought by papiNet Standard

the supply chain of paper products is becoming more and more complex, and this trend continues. The pace of commercial trade activities is accelerating, which puts forward higher requirements for the quality and quantity of information in the supply chain. Manual processing and old-fashioned automation systems can no longer meet this demand. For sellers and buyers of paper products, it is very necessary to establish a single and standard processing process and document management when carrying out very important trade activities

The papiNet standard is open, free and easy to implement, so that all enterprises participating in the supply chain can obtain common benefits. After the implementation of the papine standard, enterprises no longer need to negotiate or discuss some cumbersome data definitions and formats with trading partners, eliminating this expensive and laborious work. The papiNet standard provides a common information platform, so that all participants in the supply chain can do the following

(1) simplify the process to solve the business of multiple suppliers and customers through common business solutions

(2) reduce manual participation, reduce human errors, and improve the management efficiency of the supply chain

(3) more real-time information exchange and more available information

(4) regardless of the size or technical level of the company, there are opportunities to participate in e-commerce

in addition, it will also bring direct or indirect benefits to users

direct benefits

(1) because the information is entered at one time and will be automatically updated, it can reduce the labor and management costs

(2) because the risk of error information is minimized, the information is more accurate, and the error of manual re-entry into other systems is avoided

(3) the required information can be accessed in time. When the information of the source system is updated, other systems also update synchronously

(4) the information between trading partners is transparent. Therefore, customer satisfaction can be improved; Reduce infrastructure investment; Reduce management costs; Faster information exchange; Provide more useful information for decision-making

indirect benefits

different business types can derive additional benefits through direct benefits

(1) for the work requiring manual input of information, the staff can avoid some heavy work

(2) if the company knows when the order arrives and what content it contains, it can make staff, equipment and storage space more effectively planned and utilized

(3) sharing plan information and inventory information among business partners can ensure the most timely product transmission and reduce the inventory in the supply chain

(4) improve the transparency of the supply chain and reduce the opportunity of unnecessary inventory

implementation process

the main stages of using papiNet standards for e-commerce activities include:

preliminary research stage

define business types, investigate and study how papiNet standards help trading partners improve efficiency. At this stage, we need to draw a general result, that is, how to change the current business process and information system, and determine a basic budget and schedule

plan stage

determine how to jointly implement papiNet standards with trading partners. At this stage, the changes required to the current business process and information system, as well as the budget and schedule of the whole project should be determined in detail

implementation phase

implement specific changes to the IT system, establish a schedule for the test phase and the transition phase, and train customers

during the test phase

ensure that each work is as good as expected according to the design, that is, verify the design. Before entering the implementation stage, evaluate the test results and modify or redesign where necessary

implementation phase

begin to implement the papiNet standard. New trade processes and the use of apinet to communicate between information systems
