A Case Study on FCI Depot online System

  1. 1. Abhishek Singh Executive Director, FCI 07th January 2016 Workshop on Data Based Decision Making FCI Depot Online SystemA Case Study
  2. 2. 28.02Million MT of Wheat procured 31.37Million MT of Rice procured 69.9 Million MT of Peak Stocks 71.1Million MT of Storage Capacity 61.42 Million MT of grains is NFSA requirement 44.8Million MT of Grains moved FCI Operations
  3. 3. Slide 3 • Government of India has taken an important initiative to implement Depot Online System across all the FCI depots in the country. • This project is a part of the overall vision of Government of India to transform the food distribution supply chain in the country and one of the key initiatives taken up by the PMO • The key objective of this project is to bring IT enabled transformation in the FCI operation • Depot Online System would facilitate process automation, standardization and efficiency of management of food grains distribution and would enable real time monitoring of operations and timely data reporting About the Project Vision Statement “Transform the food supply chain management through innovative use of Technology for ensuring transparency, reliability and efficiency of procurement, storage and distribution operations”
  4. 4. Slide 4 Dynamic & complex operations of procurement, storage & movement Magnitude of operations during peak procurement season Optimizing movement across rail and road networks Off take dependent on States Difficult Labour operations – Deptt– DPS – NWNP - Contract Quality Control operations, gunny inventory, chemicals Authenticity of data and flow of data from depot upwards Current Operational Challenges
  5. 5. Slide 5 Need for Integrated IT System Expected benefits from Integrated System 1. End to end visibility of food distribution supply chain operation 2. Seamless connection between depots and district/regional offices of FCI 3. Capture data at source and in real time through Handheld, reduce redundancy 4. Integrate with weigh bridge to read data automatically 5. Standardize and improve current processes to increase efficiency 6. Free up manpower from laborious data collation and report preparation 7. Leverage IT as decision support systems to handle dynamic nature of business 8. KPI driven dashboard for the top management 9. Proactive alerts and notification 10. Integrate and share data with upstream and downstream stakeholders 11. Align with ‘Digital India’ vision
  6. 6. Slide 6 Key Components of the Implementation • Study and standardization of existing process and Process Gap analysis and to-be change recommendation • Derive application functionality from to-be process Process • Works on desktop and mobile handheld devices • Online & Offline access mode in handheld application • Application hosted in NIC Cloud Infrastructure Application • Initial piloting in 25 depots, followed by roll out in 553 depots • Adequate handholding support at the depot level for rolling out the system at each depot Rollout • Training at all levels including HO, ZO, RO and districts • Application usage, Change Management, Basic Computer Training and awareness workshop Trainings • 4 Year application warranty • 1 years Onsite Support at each level upto district level • 4 years Application helpdeskSupport • Client hardware at depot -Desktops, Tablets, Printers, UPS • Use existing Connectivity through Broadband/2G/3G • VSAT connectivity where no availability of internet/broadband Hardware & Networking

  10. 10. Slide 10 Data Driven Approach  Depot Online System provides various types of data visualization techniques to see key real time information  It builds a decision support system to enable better and efficient operational decisions based on data and prevent leakages  Allows top management to see key operational aspects centrally and helps in better utilization of resources  It enables the end to end visibility of supply chain operation up to the last mile of the operation i.e. stack level in a depot
  11. 11. Slide 11 System Dashboards Current Stock of Commodities in the depot • Depot Online System provides real time dashboards for Depot Utilization levels and current stock position • Dashboards are aggregated at various levels to provide current utilization at a particular operating level e.g, Depot wise, District wise, Region wise, zone wise, HQ level • Online Generation of Evening Stock Register and circulation to the relevant stakeholders • Better decision making based on the real time stock information, utilization and availability levels • Better planning of depot operations (storage/labor) based on the alerts/notification from mandi/millers Depot Space Utilization
  12. 12. Slide 12 Sample Visualization of Depot statistics • Real time availability of Shed Utilization an Stack positions for better storage and issue planning. • System driven allocation of sheds/stacks during inward receipts based on stack position • System based labour gang allocation • Storage losses computation as soon as the stack is killed
  13. 13. Slide 13 Sample Graphical Reports • Real time graph depicting Storage and Transit Loss Trends at various levels • Real time graph depicting Daily Offtake Vs Procurement at various levels

  15. 15. Slide 15 Alert based planning for PV PV Plan creation in the System SMS Alerts to the depots for upcoming Routine PV Escalation mechanism with auto alerts with levels of escalation if routine PV is not completed as per schedule Capture the Routine PV results online Compare PV results with Past PV and existing records online  Quarterly/Half Yearly/Annual PV Plan creation in the System  SMS Alerts at all levels for upcoming PV/Delays  Inbuilt Escalation mechanism  Online Report Generation
  16. 16. Slide 16 Alert based monitoring of Demurrage/Leakages Demurrage  Prior intimation to the depot for upcoming rakes  Better planning (Storage /Transportation /Labour /Gang) of Depot operations based on prior intimation  SMS Alerts to various stakeholders  SMS alerts for delays  Escalation mechanism for better coordination  Real time reports at various levels Leakages  System generated loss computation, No manual intervention  Real time monitoring of Storage & Transit Losses  SMS alerts if leakages beyond threshold  Escalation mechanism based on the quantum of losses  Department initiates preventive measures to reduce leakages based on real time alerts/reports  Enhanced system transparency
