            Title: Error Management in OTM Projects

            Speaker: Dilip Mirajkar, Capgemini

            Very often, OTM is implemented without giving clear thought to designing and executing an error management process. This presentation will provide an overview of the process to follow in order to proactively execute this process prior to Go Live vs. handling in a reactive fashion. Also, many users don’t truly understand which error messages to turn on and by turning on too many error messages, the important ones tend to get ignored.

            The presentation will walk through the error messages which are important to follow, and the steps to troubleshoot those error messages when they do arise.

                  Title: OTM in the Cloud

                  Speaker: Ryan Haney / Chris Plough, MavenWire

                  As interest in cloud solutions and their use with enterprise applications has increased, MavenWire has taken a lead in implementing and benchmarking several instances of OTM using Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Elastic Cloud Compute (EC2). This presentation outlines how the instances were set up and configured; potential benefits of OTM in the cloud; cost and performance comparisons between the cloud and "traditional" server configurations; areas of concern and issues to be aware of when implementing OTM in the cloud. In addition, we will also outline what we believe the future direction of cloud OTM will be, as well as where we believe it is best suited to customer needs.

                          Title: How Kraft Foods Implemented and Uses FTI

                          Speaker: Brian Fish, Chainalytics and Mark Kissell, Kraft Foods

                          This presentation will provide Kraft's approach to implementing FTI. We will provide insight on how Kraft answered key questions to implement FTI. We will provide details on project lifecycle and resources, FTI benefits Kraft is realizing, and lessons learned. The presentation will address the below key business and FTI functional and technical questions. Key Business Questions:
                          • Do we have uniform definitions for all components of our metrics (i.e. cost, volume, dates, outbound, inbound, interplant)?
                          • Does every type of transportation move have an owner responsible for achieving cost and service goals?
                          • Do all levels of the organization understand what to do with each report and how to act on the results they provide?
                          • How can we convince the higher levels of management to focus on the aggregate levels of report results and allow the execution levels to focus on the details and develop solutions to the known issues?

                          Key FTI Functional and Technical Questions:
                          • How to customize FTI to make it work for you?
                          • How to develop reports that are easy to manage and maintain?
                          • What are all of these new system processes and how do we support them?

                              Title: Sourcing Module 6.1.2 Network Bid Lessons Learned

                              Speaker: Gary Bolen, Family Dollar

                              Family Dollar uses the Sourcing Module in OTM 6.1.2 for all truckload and intermodal Inbound bid projects. Our most recent bid project covered our entire network of ten distribution centers (Approximately 55,000 shipments across 900+ lanes). I will cover our overall process, including data preparation and modeling (plus creating historical lanes for new distribution centers). Through several bid projects using OTM Sourcing Module, Family Dollar has created some SOP's for our carriers to interact with Sourcing Module. The bid validation step is very important and allows carriers to uncover incorrect bids before submitting to Family Dollar. Family Dollar looks at several scenario's to evaluate bid results. I will cover some of the new OTM 6.1 solver parameters that were helpful and allowed Family Dollar to make better lane award decisions. Sourcing Module presents several benefits to Family Dollar including but not limited to presenting all of our network data to our carriers in format to allow us to leverage volumes and solicit the best possible bid rates.
