12 ERP System background

13 ERP Implementation plan
Steering group, Reps from all business functional areas Evaluation process Change business processes Big bang implementation Best fit for business - at the time !

14 ERP Project Aims - Integrated Business System
Improve planning systems Better ability to accurately predict, therefore to manage the business Question and change our working practices as required Single / correct way of operation (only one version of the truth) Consistency and complete data No islands of information Reduce multiple data entry / increased reuse of data Single user interface (expert in 1 system) Get off obsolete / unmaintained databases & hardware To keep our Business Systems up to date with evolving technology GUI, potential for E-business

15 Avante ERP Technical details
Avante from software company Epicor U2 – Unidata PICK database - multivalue, transactional based 120 concurrent user licence. Multi processor server, 4 Pentium4, 2Gb memory, RAID discs Live account = MBytes

16 Sample Avante GUI screen

17 The extent of Avanté

18 Scope of ERP use – therefore integrated
Quotations & Sales Order acknowledgements Order BOM configurations Material Control Purchasing, MRP & buy to order Quality Control, Stock control, Tool mgt Manufacturing Work order routings, progress status Lead time Planning, + feeding details for finite scheduling Change control & Locking Project / order management Costing – standard, budget, actual hours & costs Shipping / despatch control Financial control Supplier invoices, payments, cash mgt Sales invoices All official company external documents

19 Out of scope – therefore interfaces to other systems
Engineering – to & from in-house PDM system, future – global PDM SFDC – to & from in-house timelines, clock card system Site Operations – to & from in-house system Payroll / personnel – to & from APS – Advanced Planning System – finite scheduling module NB. Non to customers / suppliers via Ebiz

20 Why out of scope ? Forced Working within a Global company
Helping implementation, practicalities By design, optimum use Better ‘external’ software solution eg APS External process eg payroll

21 Engineering PDM System interface
In-house PDM simulates future global Siemens solution To Engineering Order MBOM configurations Generic components, required dates & priority order Changes to dates, emerging extent of supply From Engineering Order EBOM configurations Specific items (parts) with all associated attributes Changes to items & drawings Polling for data, every minute Token codes dictate process

22 Shop Floor Data Capture interface
To SFDC Work order operation routings – what to make, when, on what machines Changes From SFDC Progress status Timelines, hours taken Clock cards, overtime & shifts Polling for data, every minute Token codes dictate process Batch ASCII files manually invoked, schedule time

23 Other interfaces Site Operations
To Site Ops - Work order routings – for source From Site Ops - Timelines, clock cards Payroll To Payroll - Overtime & Shifts From Payroll - Full payroll costs into Financial journals Personnel From Personnel - New starters, leavers, movements APS – Manufacturing Finite scheduling key resources To APS – outstanding work, estimated hours, earliest start dates From APS – priority work lists, expected completion dates

24 How the interfaces work
Polling, auto running 24x7 Every minute searching for a file on network drive First section of each line is a token code Each code calls specific interface process or simulates a manual menu process Batch file updates, scheduled day & time or manually control when run Each line predefined format, usually csv Error files log any problems Simulating manual processes, same validations as for users Populate database records directly Archive copies held to enable re-runs

25 Positive aspects Allows split between global & local business systems
Eg global PDM Engineering & local ERP Allows phased implementations, avoids too much of a big bang Functionality not yet available, training users Eg SFDC Out of scope of the ERP system Better specialist software used for specific tasks Eg APS finite scheduling & its what-if scenarios Remote users, not on network Eg Site Power Stations

26 Negative aspects Cost of developing
Specification, writing, testing all envisaged permutations Delays on implementation time schedules Not moving off legacy systems, not a clean break Extra links in information chains, PC – Unix, debugging Ongoing maintenance costs External bespoke software support Internal system support

27 Negative example - Avante / PDM interface
Not originally envisaged Global initiative, optimistic time scales for availability Costs (man hours) Internal – defining functional specification, testing External – detail system spec, writing software 100 k but capped ! Delay whole ERP implementation project plan - 8 months Originally planned (optimistically) 9 months (Oct 99 – July 00) Actual project time 17 months – live in Mar 01

28 Future interfaces - XML
Standardised approach Predefined, standard format of files Simulates manual menu screen process Mapping of XML fields to process fields (screen variables) Designed for Ebiz but wider application Off the shelf interface solutions !?!??

29 Conclusion Overview of the Avante ERP system at SPG
Large traditional manufacturing industry, global organisation Other systems - existing, legacy, global, external Reasons for interfaces to & from ERP Details on the interfaces Positive aspects Negative aspects But usually critical, KIS - Keep It Simple

30 The End Any Questions
