    Title: EDI On-boarding in an OTM world

    Speaker: Arijit Sarkar, Capgemini US, LLC

    Shippers and Consignees alike have always endeavored to get visibility across the entire value chain. With the recent advancements in data/transaction processing technology there has been an enhanced emphasis on breaking down information silos between organizations. With this paradigm shift, electronic transactions have started playing an increasingly vital role in evolving organizations towards an extended enterprise. This applies in equal measure, if not more, to the Logistics world too where speed of information handshake is even more critical. Mirroring this attitude, current OTM implementations tend to interface more and more with disparate business processes and systems for both inbound and outbound logistics. The vast majority of these interfaces are enables through EDI (Electronic Data Interchange) and on-boarding these interfaces becomes a critical aspect of all OTM projects. The intent of this whitepaper is to walk through the various EDI transactions prevailing in the inbound and outbound transportation arena from an OTM implementation standpoint. Furthermore the whitepaper presents a perspective on stringing together disparate transaction sets for various milestones in the value chain using key data elements that can manifest a complete view. Following is a brief rundown of the topics that would be covered in the whitepaper.
    • EDI in inbound logistics
    • EDI in outbound logistics
    • Tools and software to aid on-boarding
    • EDI on-boarding challenges

      Title: Order Management

      Speaker: Thomas Foerster, CSC

      Penske is replacing various legacy systems used to manage and execute its transportation business with OTM, including Fleet Management. Penske has a highly diverse client base with highly variable requirements and operating processes. For example, some clients require only the execution of static routes using dedicated resources, while others require dynamic route optimization and maximizing backhaul opportunities. During this session we will describe how planning and shipment execution constraints and requirements shaped the approach to order management for Penske. Specific topics addressed will include multi-stop orders, single OD-pair orders, shipments as work (SAWs), order templates, and order schedules. Attendees should expect to leave with a good understanding of OTM's order management related capabilities and how shipment planning and execution requirements and constraints affect the solution design for order management.

                  Speaker: Neelakandan Sharma, KPIT Cummins Infosystems Ltd

                  The paper describes our experience in implementing OTM and specifically Fleet Management module to manage fleet and driver requirements in an integrated environment viz. tight coupling with EBS R12 and hand-held terminals. The fleet management in this case was implemented for a shipper with own fleet of reefer vans and flatbed tractor-trailers. The drivers are also employees of the company. The shipper has implemented EBS R12 and OTM is integrated for managing following flows:
                  • Driver master updates from EBS HRMS to OTM
                  • Deliveries from EBS to OTM to plan into Consolidated and Multi-stop shipments
                  • Driver and Equipment assignment
                  • Driver advance from OTM to EBS
                  • Tracking fleet from fleet hub to pick-up to delivery and back to fleet hub
                  • Update of equipment capacity using hand-held terminals
                  • Driver penalty and incentive calculation

                  The paper will describe the challenges faced due to local laws and specific requirements and how they were overcome.

                  OTM Version: 6.2.3
                  Modules used: Core Modules, Fleet Management

                      Title: Restricted Party Screening in GTM – How to configure RPS to meet unique client requirements

                      Speaker: Andrew Shang, Oracle Consulting

                      Oracle Global Trade Management is a new product built on top of Oracle Transportation Management. Restricted Party Screening is an important functionality as part of Global Trade Management. GTM provides flexibility in configuring the Restricted Party Screening Engine unlike other Global Trade Products and can help in reducing the false positive hit rates while performing Restricted Party Screening. During implementation, different clients may have very different requirements and the way they store trading parties can be totally different. Hence the final solution varies. In this session you will be introduced to the configuration that needs to be done to get the Restricted Party Screening functionality working. You will be introduced to various real life client scenarios and how Restricted Party Screening have been configured to meet those requirements.

                          Title: 6.2 Upgrade Using The Fast Lane How USS upgraded OTM in less than 6 hours

                          Speaker: Janice Gottlieb, Tennin Systems, Inc

                          At US Steel, we recently did a very successful OTM upgrade from to 6.2.3. Not only was the upgrade successful, but we managed to do the PROD upgrade in less than 6 hours. This was a fourfold increase over our initial upgrade attempts. We would like to share with the SIG group our experiences and the techniques that we employed to speed the process and decrease our outage time.

                          Some of the points we would like to present are as follows:
                          • Short project time frame: 6 month process from start in DEV to completion in PROD. Not only was it a 4+ release upgrade but also a change in platform (AIX to Linux), app server (websphere to weblogic) non-scaled to scaled environment (2 app servers ) and new hardware as well.
                          • Assembling the team. Get the right personnel with the right skills.
                          • Integration issues and how we overcame them. Integration testing techniques that we found helpful.
                          • Purging before the upgrade. Time saved when purging.
                          • Staging the upgrade. Separating the software upgrade from the database upgrade.
                          • Indexing to speed the db upgrade process
                          • Partitioning the process to move tenders to a new partition.
                          • Partitioning the gather stats process.
                          • Scripting all USS changes.
                          • The need to practice the upgrade process until it is clean (error/free)
                          • Partnering with Oracle Support
                          • Post-Upgrade issues and user reaction good/bad.

                            Title: Best Practices & learning from Implementing OTM in LATAM

                            Speaker: Amlendu Shekhar/Kamal Gupta, Satyam Computer Services Ltd.

                            Implementing OTM in LATAM differs from other geographies not only from fiscal / financial processes, but also in operational processes. This session draws learning and experience from implementing OTM for one of the large 3PLs and a large CPG company in Brazil and Argentina respectively. From fiscal perspective, the session would speak about solution that handles Brazil taxes, carrier payments and customer billing leveraging OTM and an extension ‘OTM FORCE'. Operationally, some of the scenarios configured in OTM are typical for managing costs and risks in emerging economies. The use cases covered also include managing Redelivery/return freight cost, cost management/allocation of dedicated fleet and approval workflows for rates and costs.
