A large mid-western manufacturer of electrical products for commercial, industrial, hazardous and adverse environments has extended Oracle WMS to gain significant efficiencies in its warehouses. Stretching back as far as the early 1800s, this company has been an industry leader and their brands are known for their durability, safety, quality, easy installation and global availability. The company maintains its leadership by taking advantage of new technology as it becomes available.
With a continuous need for increasing efficiency as well as providing rapid response to internal and external customers, the client contacted Computer Technology Resources (CTR) to help them implement the right solution via Oracle Warehouse Management System (WMS). CTR consultants were a part of project scope definition as well as analyzing the warehouse in Memphis to understand existing pain-points and system constraints.
Scope of the project
CTR met with relevant stakeholders and prioritized requirements. Scope definition also involved extensive interaction with warehouse business and supply chain users in order to understand and document To-Be business processes.
Strategy, Execution and Implementation
This extensive Oracle WMS implementation strategy involved executing the following tasks:
Part of implementation also involved training the ‘super users’ and documenting the complete process for quick references and learning. Some specific actions involved:
Time to Completion
The entire project was completed while under short lead times and strict deadlines. The End to End project took fifteen months and the handover was completed on the final day with a walkthrough. As a final acceptance of the deliverables, the users validated common functionalities and processes. Acceptance was received shortly thereafter.
Oracle’s WMS system was successfully implemented. Customizations were developed and deployedby CTR based on the client’s requirements. It is critical that customizations and extensions arecarefully designed so as not to affect Oracle Support. This is always an important consideration when dealing with a supported system.
Benefits and Return on Investment
The client saw the results of implementing Oracle WMS and the subsequent return on investment (ROI) from day one. Some benefits included:
