Precision-engineered ERP from Avanade enables Lotus F1 Team to deliver winning track results

  1. 1. Case Study Avanade is helping the Lotus F1 Team to stay out in front by seamlessly integrating a next- generation ERP solution into the team’s operations. The Lotus F1 Team builds just two cars each year to constantly evolving design specifications. In fact, with a 2 week design cycle between races, it’s essential the team can manufacture and supply race-ready car parts within fiercely tight deadlines. Winning in Formula 1 means excelling at micro-managing all the small details within that process that together make a big difference to track performance. When the Lotus F1 Team needed to upgrade its legacy ERP system to create a single view of manufacturing and supply processes, it chose the agile Microsoft Dynamics AX ERP system – deployed and integrated by Avanade. Avanade brought its specialist skills to the project to ensure high-performance process design and seamless IT integration. The result? Improved process efficiency and empowerment of the Lotus F1 team to focus more time and resource on its core business: designing the world’s fastest cars. “Avanade is a critical partner on our strategic IT journey. They give us the expertise, confidence and skill we need to keep moving at speed.” Michael Taylor.

Avanade is working closely with the Lotus F1 Team to deliver a smooth integration of Microsoft Dynamics AX over three phases. Avanade’s visionary approach enables us to confidently and rapidly integrate existing programs of the Lotus F1 Team to the new platform for Finance and Human Resources functions with Inventory and Warehouse Management coming in the next phase. We bring some great advantages to the project: • Unrivalled Microsoft expertise and rigorous IT transformation tools and methodologies. • A unique partnership with Microsoft which helps us pass on technical innovation faster. • Complete collaboration with Microsoft and the Lotus F1 Team creating a powerfully single-minded project direction. Real-world results already achieved: • Fast reporting. Every F1 car collects more than 20 megabytes of data on each track lap based on roughly 320 in-car sensors. That’s a huge raft of data that’s now helping the Lotus F1 Team to analyze at speed to drive vital design and aerodynamics improvements. • Clever efficiencies. In just one year, the Lotus F1 Team saved 200 man-days by removing everyday administration from designers. Effectively, that’s another designer handed back to the team, which makes a huge business difference. • Staying ahead of compliance. 2014 saw the introduction of a raft of new F1 regulations. With its new Microsoft Dynamics AX solution, the Lotus F1 Team can make sure it stays ahead of regulatory change.
