12 Rundown with scheduled delivery Scheduler’s “playground” The TSW WorldPipeline NominationRundown with scheduled deliveryScheduler’s “playground”Immediate updates to rundownInventory graph from rundownMarine NominationEvent LogScheduling and RVPPlanning tool for destination schedulers.Allows “What If” scenarios w/o disturbing current noms or PO’s and SO’s.Allows these scenarios w/o regeneration of rd.Can graph directly from rd to compare to target inventories.RVP BOM allows us to view all data on one product code.Schedulers, marine folks are required to enter much data.
13 TSW NominationSchedule a barrell delivery into Meridian on June 18th - stock transfer (plant-to-plant).
14 TSW Nomination on Rundown Quick overview of layout of rundown – daily, SAP book and physical inventory, receipts vs. issues, right most column has truck activity.Rundown shows the receipt and the effect on the inventory projection.Touch on the header numbers on rundown (book, physical, Alternate, Inventory limits).ATAC feedsRundown now an ALV control in Service Pack 1. Look and feel of spreadsheet and real-time – should be very nice.
15 Scheduler’s “Playground” Custom built transaction to allow very flexible, very easy replenishment planning. Enter in how you want to change the current scheduling and the rundown is automatically updated to reflect the new inventory position.Nothing is actually changed in SAP (nomination, order, etc.) except for the rundown.Nightly job ‘cleans up’ the playground so the users don’t have to worry about it.In this example, the scheduler wants to determine what will happen if they can’t get the entire barrells as originally thought, now they may just receive in So, create a proposal for 5000 to take this out of their inventory projection on the rundown.
16 Scheduler’s “Playground” Shows the ‘proposed’ schedule change as an issue on the rundown.Notice that the nomination information is still the same. That is because nothing in TSW or SAP R/3 has actually changed yet, except the rundown.The SAP Book inventory projection reflects the proposal.
17 Inventory Graph From Rundown Inventory graph called from rundown or stand alone.Graphs rundown numbers.Difference in BOOK and physical s/b bottoms – check with Kathy?
18 Marine NominationMarine nominations not much different except for UOM and material at item level. Main difference is the event log – next screen.
19 Event Log Event type link to G/L accounts Configure however you’d like Lots of reporting off of event logEvent log becoming more important as more of our Asphalt and Crude business uses TSW.Currently working with several vendors on getting files from them with ‘event’/dock information so that we can automatically update the event log.Drill down capability into SAP R/3 documents (i.e. freight purchase orders).Free form text can be entered too.
20 Scheduling and RVPHandling of RVP from scheduling/actualization perspective works very well.Master data setup makes most if not all of the process happen automatically.Date driven – so if schedule slips and/or for year to year RVP changeover.
21 And that’s TSW at CITGO…(the quick version) We can honestly say that at CITGO:histufforks
22 Business Warehouse Example One of our biggest frustration at Citgo has been that we are required to enter so much data into SAP, but we can’t get the data out as we need it, and as it makes sense for Operations.However, BW (Business Warehouse) has become that solution in extracting data from this monster data base.We have successfully been able to pull out of SAP all of these data points that give Citgo our total system inventory current and projected.Used for our Risk Mgmt purposes, inventory control, year-end inventory planning, etc.

This data is the barrel volume difference our projection was to our financial close.We started using BW for this activity along with Mgmt requirements in October
