ERP and Business Basics consistency
The industry type, the level of regulation, the distribution and planning system imply specific requirements. Companies have developed processes and have built teams to respond to these requirements. To support the company processes, the information system has to capture and deliver the right data at the right place – across the entire company – on a daily basis.
The ultimate details of the business processes (reports, labels, excel spreadsheets, any piece of data…) should be considered during design – because it is the place where business requirements can be fully understood before translating them into an IT solution.
As a consequence of this approach, the designed solution should really help the business in its daily activities:
- Zero paper by using labels, bar code devices and electronic signature
- Compliant system adjusted to the industry good practices and standards
See our example of an Integrated Planning system built to support global planning processes.
Stick to the Oracle standards
Oracle e-Business Suite is a highly flexible system. The manufacturing and distribution modules can be adjusted to the company activity and size. This is obtained by choosing the right manufacturing and distribution modules and by a relevant setup.
An Oracle standard solution is fast to build, can be demonstrated to the business during Conference Room Pilot sessions. A standard solution can be easily adjusted and discussed in an Agile approach.
Acting this way will reduce the volume of customizations. More importantly it is a means to ease the change management. Just because the solution can be directly demonstrated to and tested by the business. The new solution becomes obvious and is usually well accepted.
The solutions proposed here are the result of years of Oracle projects. They have been implemented with success, they stick to the Oracle standard and propose a real improvement for the business. Quality, Planning are some of the covered topics. Enterprise Asset Management and Manufacturing to come soon.
