    • Oracle 11i Configuration DocumentENTERPRISE RESOURCE PLANNING (ERP)Enterprise Resource Planning integrates internal and external management information across an entireorganization, embracing finance/accounting, manufacturing, sales and service, etc. ERP systems automate thisactivity with an integrated computer-based application. Its purpose is to facilitate the flow of informationbetween all business functions inside the boundaries of the organization and manage the connections to outsidestakeholders.ERP systems can run on a variety of hardware and network configurations, typically employing a database tostore its dataERP systems typically include the following characteristics:  An integrated system that operates in (next to) real time, without relying on periodic updates.  A common database, which supports all applications.  A consistent look and feel throughout each module.  Installation of the system without elaborate application/data integration by the Information Technology (IT) department.Enterprise resource planning software, or ERP, doesnt live up to its acronym. Forget about planning—it doesntdo much of that—and forget about resource, a throwaway term. But remember the enterprise part. This is ERPstrue ambition. It attempts to integrate all departments and functions across a company onto a single computersystem that can serve all those different departments particular needs.Take a customer order, for example. Typically, when a customer places an order, that order begins a mostlypaper-based journey from in-basket to in-basket around the company, often being keyed and rekeyed intodifferent departments computer systems along the way. All that lounging around in in-baskets causes delaysand lost orders, and all the keying into different computer systems invites errors. Meanwhile, no one in thecompany truly knows what the status of the order is at any given point because there is no way for the financedepartment, for example, to get into the warehouses computer system to see whether the item has beenshipped. "Youll have to call the warehouse" is the familiar refrain heard by frustrated customers.FUNCTIONAL AREAS1. Finance/AccountingGeneral ledger, payables, receivables, budgeting, consolidation2.

Data ServicesVarious "self-service" interfaces for customers, suppliers and/or employeesADVANTAGES OF ERPThe fundamental benefit of ERP is that by integrating the myriad processes by which businesses operate, it savestime and expense. Decisions can be quicker and with fewer errors. Data is visible across the organization. Tasksthat benefit from this integration include:  Sales forecasting, which allows inventory optimization  Order tracking, from acceptance through fulfillment  Revenue tracking, from invoice through cash receipt  Matching purchase orders (what was ordered), inventory receipts (what arrived), and costing (what the vendor invoiced)ERP systems centralize data. Benefits of this include:  No synchronizing changes between multiple systems - consolidation of finance, marketing and sales, human resource, and manufacturing applications  Enables standard product naming/coding.  Provides comprehensive view of the enterprise (no "islands of information"). Makes real–time information available to management anywhere, anytime to make proper decisions.  Protects sensitive data by consolidating multiple security systems into a single structure.HOW CAN ERP IMPROVE A COMPANYS BUSINESS PERFORMANCE?ERPs best hope for demonstrating value is as a sort of battering ram for improving the way your company takesa customer order and processes it into an invoice and revenue—otherwise known as the order fulfillmentprocess. That is why ERP is often referred to as back-office software. It doesnt handle the up-front sellingprocess (although most ERP vendors have recently developed CRM software to do this); rather, ERP takes acustomer order and provides a software road map for automating the different steps along the path to fulfillingit. When a customer service representative enters a customer order into an ERP system, he has all theinformation necessary to complete the order (the customers credit rating and order history from the financemodule, the companys inventory levels from the warehouse module and the shipping docks trucking schedulefrom the logistics module, for example). 5
    • Oracle 11i Configuration DocumentPeople in these different departments all see the same information and can update it. When one departmentfinishes with the order it is automatically routed via the ERP system to the next department. To find out wherethe order is at any point, you need only log in to the ERP system and track it down. With luck, the order processmoves like a bolt of lightning through the organization, and customers get their orders faster and with fewererrors than before. ERP can apply that same magic to the other major business processes, such as employeebenefits or financial reporting.That, at least, is the dream of ERP. The reality is much harsher. Lets go back to those inboxes for a minute. Thatprocess may not have been efficient, but it was simple. Finance did its job, the warehouse did its job, and ifanything went wrong outside of the departments walls, it was somebody elses problem. Not anymore. WithERP, the customer service representatives are no longer just typists entering someones name into a computerand hitting the return key. The ERP screen makes them businesspeople. It flickers with the customers creditrating from the finance department and the product inventory levels from the warehouse. Will the customer payon time? Will we be able to ship the order on time? These are decisions that customer service representativeshave never had to make before, and the answers affect the customer and every other department in thecompany. But its not just the customer service representatives who have to wake up. People in the warehousewho used to keep inventory in their heads or on scraps of paper now need to put that information online. If theydont, customer service reps will see low inventory levels on their screens and tell customers that theirrequested item is not in stock. Accountability, responsibility and communication have never been tested like thisbefore.People dont like to change, and ERP asks them to change how they do their jobs. That is why the value of ERP isso hard to pin down. The software is less important than the changes companies make in the ways they dobusiness. If you use ERP to improve the ways your people take orders, manufacture goods, ship them and bill forthem, you will see value from the software. If you simply install the software without changing the ways peopledo their jobs, you may not see any value at all—indeed, the new software could slow you down by simplyreplacing the old software that everyone knew with new software that no one does.WHAT WILL ERP FIX IN MY BUSINESS?There are five major reasons why companies undertake ERP.Integrate Financial Information—As the CEO tries to understand the companys overallperformance, he may find many different versions of the truth. Finance has its own set of revenue numbers,sales has another version, and the different business units may each have their own version of how much theycontributed to revenues. ERP creates a single version of the truth that cannot be questioned because everyone isusing the same system.Integrate Customer Order Information—ERP systems can become the place where thecustomer order lives from the time a customer service representative receives it until the loading dock ships themerchandise and finance sends an invoice. By having this information in one software system, rather thanscattered among many different systems that cant communicate with one another, companies can keep track oforders more easily, and coordinate manufacturing, inventory and shipping among many different locations atthe same time.Standardize And Speed Up Manufacturing Processes—Manufacturing companies—especially those with an appetite for mergers and acquisitions—often find that multiple business units across the 6
    • Oracle 11i Configuration Documentcompany make the same widget using different methods and computer systems. ERP systems come withstandard methods for automating some of the steps of a manufacturing process. Standardizing those processesand using a single, integrated computer system can save time, increase productivity and reduce head count.Reduce Inventory—ERP helps the manufacturing process flow more smoothly, and it improves visibilityof the order fulfillment process inside the company. That can lead to reduced inventories of the stuff used tomake products (work-in-progress inventory), and it can help users better plan deliveries to customers, reducingthe finished good inventory at the warehouses and shipping docks. To really improve the flow of your supplychain, you need supply chain software, but ERP helps too.Standardize HR Information—Especially in companies with multiple business units, HR may not havea unified, simple method for tracking employees time and communicating with them about benefits andservices. ERP can fix that. In the race to fix these problems, companies often lose sight of the fact that ERPpackages are nothing more than generic representations of the ways a typical company does business. Whilemost packages are exhaustively comprehensive, each industry has its quirks that make it unique. Most ERPsystems were designed to be used by discrete manufacturing companies (that make physical things that can becounted), which immediately left all the process manufacturers (oil, chemical and utility companies that measuretheir products by flow rather than individual units) out in the cold. Each of these industries has struggled withthe different ERP vendors to modify core ERP programs to their needs.ORGANIZATION OF ERP:Based on our observations, there are three commonly used ways of installing ERP.The Big Bang—In this, the most ambitious and difficult of approaches to ERP implementation, companiescast off all their legacy systems at once and install a single ERP system across the entire company. Though thismethod dominated early ERP implementations, few companies dare to attempt it anymore because it calls forthe entire company to mobilize and change at once. Most of the ERP implementation horror stories from thelate 90s warn us about companies that used this strategy. Getting everyone to cooperate and accept a newsoftware system at the same time is a tremendous effort, largely because the new system will not have anyadvocates. No one within the company has any experience using it, so no one is sure whether it will work. Also,ERP inevitably involves compromises. Many departments have computer systems that have been honed tomatch the ways they work. In most cases, ERP offers neither the range of functionality nor the comfort offamiliarity that a custom legacy system can offer. In many cases, the speed of the new system may sufferbecause it is serving the entire company rather than a single department. ERP implementation requires a directmandate from the CEO.Franchising Strategy—This approach suits large or diverse companies that do not share many commonprocesses across business units. Independent ERP systems are installed in each unit, while linking commonprocesses, such as financial bookkeeping, across the enterprise. This has emerged as the most common way ofimplementing ERP. In most cases, the business units each have their own "instances" of ERP—that is, a separatesystem and database. The systems link together only to share the information necessary for the corporation toget a performance big picture across all the business units (business unit revenues, for example), or forprocesses that dont vary much from business unit to business unit (perhaps HR benefits). Usually, theseimplementations begin with a demonstration or pilot installation in a particularly open-minded and patientbusiness unit where the core business of the corporation will not be disrupted if something goes wrong. Oncethe project team gets the system up and running and works out all the bugs, the team begins selling other units 7
    • Oracle 11i Configuration Documenton ERP, using the first implementation as a kind of in-house customer reference. Plan for this strategy to take along time!Slam Dunk—ERP dictates the process design in this method, where the focus is on just a few key processes,such as those contained in an ERP systems financial module. The slam dunk is generally for smaller companiesexpecting to grow into ERP. The goal here is to get ERP up and running quickly and to ditch the fancyreengineering in favor of the ERP systems "canned" processes. Few companies that have approached ERP thisway can claim much payback from the new system. Most use it as an infrastructure to support more diligentinstallation efforts down the road. Yet many discover that a slammed-in ERP system is little better than a legacysystem because it doesnt force employees to change any of their old habits. In fact, doing the hard work ofprocess reengineering after the system is in can be more challenging than if there had been no system at allbecause at that point few people in the company will have felt much benefit.ERP VENDORSPeopleSoftPeopleSoft, Inc. was a company that provided human resource management systems (HRMS) and customerrelationship management (CRM) software, as well as software solutions for manufacturing, financials, enterpriseperformance management, and student administration to large corporations, governments, and organizations. Itexisted as an independent corporation until its acquisition by Oracle Corporation in 2005. The PeopleSoft nameand product line are now marketed by Oracle.PeopleSofts product suite was initially based on a client–server approach with a dedicated client. With therelease of version 8, entire suite moved to a web-centric design called Pure Internet Architecture (PIA).The newformat allowed all of a companys business functions to be accessed and run on a web browser. Originally, asmall number of security and system setup functions still needed to be performed on a fat client machine;however, this is no longer the case.OracleOracle Corporation is an American multinational computer technology corporation that specializes in developingand marketing hardware systems and enterprise software products — particularly database managementsystems. Headquartered in Redwood Shores, California, United States and employing 105,000 people worldwideas of 1 July 2010.
