develop scm process  is the struggle to develop customer-unique bills of material (BOMs) . This semi automated activity, using spreadsheets, little black books, and out-dated product catalogs is fraught with possibilities for errors. It is a major drain on the time and use of product-knowledgeable personnel, particularly engineers, often requiring back and forth steps to validate the required product configuration. Additionally, it causes sales personnel to distrust the legacy process, and, accordingly, to cope as best they

ERP for the Oil and Gas Industry (Upstream)

The model of ERP systems for the upstream oil and gas sector addresses the particularly specialized business model of this industry. It is common practice for companies, individuals, and government agencies to form partnerships to explore, develop, and share production of oil wells. More often than not, this is a short-term alliance rather than a long-term partnership, and business structuring must therefore be flexible at initial set-up and throughout the lifespan of the venture. This model of ERP systems includes criteria for financials, human resources, production data capture and reporting, maintenance management, and supply chain management (SCM) functionality.

It’s About Process (or Ability to be Responsive) - Part I


After several years (if not decades, even) of painstakingly corralling and setting up all their custom data, objects, tables and whatnot, and making sure that these static and/or dynamic transactional data are secure, many enterprise applications users have realized that the time is long overdue for them to start looking at ways to make their applications more process-savvy.

Five Inventory Areas that Every Process Manufacturer Must Master


While many ERP systems claim to cater to the process manufacturing industry, a closer look reveals that in reality, little distinction is made within ERP applications to readily address the fundamental needs of a process versus a discrete manufacturer. This paper elaborates on one of the most fundamental requirements of process manufacturers—multidimensional inventory—which is noticeably absent from most ERP applications.
