IGNITE 2015 EU - DuPont's Project Cornerstone: A Journey to Global Logistics Visibility

  1. 1. DuPont’s Project Cornerstone: A Journey to Global Logistics Visibility 15 SEP 2015 Chris Cameron Director Business Process Solutions, Elemica
  2. 2. DuPont and Elemica Global Logistics Visibility •  Solution review of a DuPont / Elemica Project •  Project Goal Data ownership of dominant 3PL partners to enable… –  increase customer delivery satisfaction through visibility –  efficient control of pipeline inventory through visibility –  Increased admin effectiveness
  3. 3. 9/28/15 DUPONT CONFIDENTIAL 3 3 Background Ø  S&D Diagnostics were conducted in the growth regions beginning in 2009 Ø  Key pain point: customers were calling DuPont CSRs to find the status of their deliveries – in come cases, customers called multiple times a day Ø  CSRs spent a considerable amount of time manually tracking shipments using a multitude of disconnected systems Ø  A small scale pilot (Project Cornerstone) was built in 2013 and kicked off in 2014 – validate gaps, address immediate pain points, and get an understand on the necessary tools, capabilities and competencies required to build out a full scale Logistics Shipment Tracking capability in DuPont Ø  In order to minimize risks (technical, financial, resource, etc…), the approach was to maximize the leverage of existing assets and leverage a cloud based technical solution – Elemica Logistics Tracking

  5. 5. 9/28/15 DUPONT CONFIDENTIAL 5 5 Project Summary Pilot Project Goal Ø  Provide early warning functionality for the CSRs Ø  Enable Logistics Shipment Visibility to a single modal transportation Ø  Implement a Logistics Shipment Tracking technology platform capable of scaling to multi-modal and multi-enterprise levels Ø  Gain experience, understanding and insight into the design and development of an integrated Logistics Tracking capability. Ø  Validate use case scenarios and expected benefits as identified in the original project scope Pilot Project Scope Ø  US exports to Xingang,China for P&IP Ø  US exports to Nheva Sheva, India for P&IP Ø  US exports to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil for DCP (STO)
  6. 6. DuPont and Elemica Global Shipment Visibility Pilot Solution Overview •  An all modes solution to measure against a shipment baseline expectations •  Visibility to the shipment movement legs & tracking for non- conformance •  Alert required parties for variance or potential variance •  Provide Shipper ownership of the data to feed analytics •  A tool for continuous improvement

  16. 16. 9/28/15 DUPONT CONFIDENTIAL 16 16 Project Performance As of 2/28/2014, pilot project is 100% complete Cost Ø  Budget at Start : $231M Ø  Actual Cost : $191M (as of EO January 2014) Ø  Cost Performance Index (CPI): 1.00 Project Duration: Ø  Initiation Date: 6/17/2013 Ø  Implementation Start Date: 9/25/2013 Ø  Launch Date: 12/17/2013 Ø  Close Out Date: 3/14/2014 Ø  Schedule Performance Index (SPI): 1.04 3 months to configure and implement the solution!
  17. 17. 9/28/15 DUPONT CONFIDENTIAL 17 17 Key Learnings Ø  DuPont is dependent on the outsource parties for visibility data access and does not have a means for adjudicating that data via the current architecture Ø  Lack of data ownership by DuPont prevents the visibility data from being used as a value add Ø  Gaps in responsibility between integrated partners promotes lack of End to End visibility Ø  Using 3PL supplied tracking tools (and having trained 200+ users) will potentially make it very costly and disruptive in the event DuPont decides to switch service providers Ø  Move forward with project expansion….
