  • Key activities within the supply chain are actually managed as business process flows. The plumbing that seamlessly manages this capability is the single, common schema and collaborative platform. I2 and the others will tell you that they can do all these activities, but can they support the business flows? No, not without an integrated platform.
  • In the new integrated supply chain, achieving these goals means mastering new skills…as noted in the slide.
  • If you make these changes, the benefits are significant...
  • So, to summarize, the internet has re-defined the operation of the supply chain. To compete and survive, every company needs a plan to become an e-Business.
  • Oracle Consulting, working with development, developed FastForward Flows allowing our customers to implement Supply Chain Business Flows quickly. Business Flows cross organizational and application boundaries in every organization. FastForward Flows allow you to implement our software to address common business processes from end to end rather than implementing point solutions that must be pieced together. The FastForward Flows provide an incremental approach for implementing the E-Business Suite and we have found that customers prefer to implement in phases. We’re pleased to announce 4 new Consulting offerings that allow customers to address Supply Chain Management right away
  • For this slide, emphasize yellow phrases as they answer the question. The White phrases support the points, but are not necessary to mention. FastForward Flows for SCM provide you with a roadmap for building your E-Business. Fast Forward Flows provide: Integrated SCM Solutions Closed Loop Business Processes Rapid Implementation This new approach allows us to move upmarket because it provides a solution that is appropriate for all companies.
  • The benefits our customers experience: Lower Cost - Drive efficiency through entire business operations by avoiding customization Predetermined implementations means better control over IT Costs Reduced Risk - Predictable implementations Reduced complexity Faster implementations FastForward Flows can be implemented in as few as 90 days Allows customers to realize ROI more quickly
  • Oracle Consulting provides services that allow companies to start building a solid foundation right away - regardless of whether they are new or existing customers. Our foundation services include: Strategic services such as E-Business Planning Session and Executive Workshops allow companies to evaluate and develop their E-Business Strategy. Tactical services include detailed topics such as: Chart of Accounts Workshop ( to set up Chart of Account segments and codes) Trading Community Architecture Workshop - (guidance for setup of prospect and customer data in a trading community model ) Multi-Org Workshop (review and application of leading practices to define the organizational structures and relationships of an enterprise within Oracle Applications)
  • Now for an overview of the new solutions….
  • We are happy to announce four FastForward Flow offerings critical to Supply Chain Management. They are: Order to Cash Demand to Build Forecast to Plan Procure to Pay
  • The Oracle Order Management solution incorporates: Multi-Channel Demand Complete Business Flow Tailorable, Workflow Driven Process Self-Service Integrated Logistics
  • First, we have Order to Cash. Walk through a few of the steps in the process or give a high-level example. Companies need to collect orders, invoice customers and ultimately collect cash. The Order to Cash flow will allow them to address the steps listed here... (Do not try to go through every step.)
  • Please note that Procure to Pay for Direct Materials is included in this flow.
  • Don Klaiss will jump in here.
  • Reference support for “Automated the Order to Cash Business Flow” pulled from customer success story on The result was that Empirix met its target date and was running on all applications targeted for Phase 1 on January 1, 2001. The applications included General Ledger, Accounts Payable, Accounts Receivable, Order Management, Cash Management, Purchasing, Inventory, Human Resources Management System (HRMS), and Advanced Benefits. Empirix was now able to operate as an entity fully independent from Teradyne; that is, it could hire employees; order materials; book, ship, and invoice orders; pay suppliers; create financial statements; and otherwise operate on its own. Mark Key points: Empirix adopted our business processes. They implemented in 87 days AND Automated the Order to Cash process
  • Next, we have Demand to Build Pause
  • The Oracle Manufacturing solution incorporates: Efficient Manufacturing to address Personalization, Demand Variability and Supply Variability High Quality Production Partner Collaboration
  • Again - Here are the steps included in the process Mention a few of the steps
  • Starting w/ a Foundation, customers can implementDemand to Build I as little as 50 days. Given the power of Oracle applications, additional capabilities can be added at the customer’s request.
  • Key points: OC utilized a flow-based approach Implemented Demand to Build in 31 days - File notes: This customer is a Demand to Build - Discrete reference. I’ve highlighted 4 points that I believe are relevant. I can pursue hard facts from Hugh and Chris - please advise as to potential wording of facts From Consulting HealthCheck Report (not a marketing document) prepared by Hugh Scher; Project Manager is Chris Dixon: Goals: establish the fundamental technology and business applications infrastructure; optimize resource utilization through technology; provide flexible scalability for future growth; integrate the value chain; enable a smooth transition to eCommerce for future Business-to-Business transactions; facilitate the company's transition to a global eCommerce company fully-automate the manufacturing plant Implemented Manufacturing solution in approx. 54days (under 3 months) and 12 days under schedule Addressed disparate software tools and systems and provided an easy and cost effective ability to scale the enterprise in the future.
  • Next we will outline the FastForward Flow for Forecast to Plan. Pause
  • Oracle provides a collaborative, holistic, e-business planning process that allows you to include all of your trading partners in the planning process, reduce the number of steps in the planning process, and dramatically reduce the cycle time of the planning process
  • The business process allows customers to start with the Develop Planning Models step and end with the Release Production Schdule step.
  • Customers that Start with the Foundation that includes: Financials Order to Cash or Demand to Build can implement Forecast to Plan in as little as 40 days. Again, at customer request, we can implement additional capabilities.
  • Finally, the Procure to Pay FastFOrward Flow.
  • The Oracle Procurement solution incorporates: Process Automation across the entire procure-to-pay business flow for both indirect procurement (including services) and direct procurement Sourcing new products via RFx, auctions, quotes, bids, and counterbids Collaboration with Suppliers Integrated Intelligence captures all transactions and provides information regarding spend analysis, procurement productivity and supplier performance.
  • Key points: Automated Procure to Pay Business Flow Completed Implementation 30 days ahead of schedule Other file notes: Added Nielsen ranking above From Press Release: The purchasing module issues all purchase orders for the company's business partners, providing Classmates' accounting staff with one source for desktop procedures. (This could be an “Automated the Procure to Pay Business Flow” fact) Implementation completed 30 days under schedule Couldn’t dig up much more. I’ll start “smiling and dialing” on Monday.
  • Customers have the option to have Oracle implement, host and maintain the application at Oracle or to choose to have Oracle implement at the customer site and take over maintenance of the application.
  • A few of our customers who have benefited from our rapid implementation approach. (Do not read throught the names.)
  • One customer, Blue Nile, was able to increase sales by 200% without increasing their staffing levels. They realized a major increase in productivity with the E-Business Suite.
