  • OTM SIG User Conference Europe 2013: Presentations

    The EMEA/ASIA OTM SIG Board Committee is thrilled to announce that our inaugural OTM User Conference in Amsterdam has been a great success! We've gone a long way to bring this conference nearer to a large number of OTM users in Europe. The yearly OTM User Conference in the U.S. is already well established since 2007, attracting an audience of almost 400 people. This European conference brought together representatives of OTM clients from all over Europe and Asia: we have so much in common, however each one of us have our own unique specificity, experience and approaches that are interesting to other OTM users.

    We had a total of 99 registered attendees representing 17 OTM client companies and 18 partners. Attending clients included APL Logistics, DHL, FIAT, GE, IKEA, Kuehne+Nagel, Lenta, Lufthansa, Mazda, Mondelez, Norilsk Nickel, DB Schenker, Schneider Electric, Transcontainer, Unilever, Volvo and Vortex, and attending partners companies were Capgemini, Croc, DSI, Gray Peaks, Hexaware, HP, IBS, Kewill, KPIT, MavenWire, Nokia, Oracle, Precision Software, Reply Business, Mahindra Satyam, Sitronix IT, TM Consulting and Transporeon.

    Our thanks goes out to the many people who made this conference possible, such as the U.S. SIG Board of Directors with their continuous support for our risky adventure across the pond, Beth McLamb (exiting U.S. Board member) who supported and advised us with her seven years of experience, Tara Zeravsky (Meeting Expectations) who did a splendid job as conference manager on her maiden European conference, Dominic Regan (Oracle) who ran his shoes off to round up many existing and potential OTM clients, Pam Vivio (U.S. Board member) who came over from the U.S. and shared her vast OTM experience in a presentation, and the Krasnapolsky Hotel staff who acted smooth and swiftly on the many late changes and requests.

    We introduced quite some innovations on this conference, such as video registration of presentations, an on-line agenda with speaker bios and summaries, client interviews, general session panel discussions, and hiring a photographer to capture the conference atmosphere as you can see here.

    We will definitely organise another conference next year somewhere in Europe, and as successful it was, we know there is always room for improvement!

        Title: OTM at Volvo (ATLAS)

        Speaker: Sven Börjeson (Volvo) and Leon Kohlen (Oracle)

        Volvo Europe went live July 2012 for the road inbound OTM project called "ATLAS". ATLAS Release 4 is the first phase of two phases in total. The second phase will go live in 2013. ATLAS Release 4 is about Volvo's inbound transports from European suppliers to Volvo plants via a road supply chain network of service provider cross-docks and direct deliveries.

        The first project phase will cover POC (Proof of Collection) and POD (Proof of Delivery) at first cross-dock in a European road supply chain network. Order Releases get planned into Order Movements and via OM bulkplan in OTM plant into collection shipments from supplier to first the first cross-dock. Actuals are updated at POC and POD.

        The second project phase covers the rest of the European road supply chain from first cross-dock via a Volvo cross-dock to the final Volvo plant. In the second phase will also integration be included as more visibility functionality and settlement related functionality. Besides the 2 mentioned phases Volvo is also studying and performing "deep-sea"-functionality and further global out-roll of ATLAS (OTM) like into APAC and South-America.

          Title: OTM and SOA

          Speaker: Mark Hagan (Oracle)

          Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) implementations are gaining popularity. OTM application integration with these implementations requires an increased level of support for industry standards; specifically Web Services Security (WSS). This presentation describes the WSS capabilities added to OTM v6.3 and how this differs from, and expands on previous support. It also discusses some potential future enhancements in this area (e.g. XML schema design).

                        Title: Data Management for Dummies

                        Speaker: Lourens Andriesse (HP)

                        "OTM is like a Ferrari, but the fuel is pumped with a dripper". These were the words of one of the presenter’s first client complaining about the time-consuming rate loading process. The presentation will unveil the audience the mystery about OTM Data Management, or rather, how to get your data in and out of OTM. The better you understand how OTM stores its data, the better you are able to manage it yourself with simple tools and you learn to appreciate the sophisticated third party tools that are offered today.

                        If you don’t know what SQL, UTF-8, CSV stands for, then you’re exactly where the presenter was eight years ago, and he’ll lead you by the hand using real examples. After having seen the presentation, you won’t be a Data Management guru, but at least you’re able to understand what these chaps are talking about.

                          Title: Convert Waste into Value using OTM

                          Speaker: Naval Sabharwal (Hexaware Technologies)

                          This is a bout between Mr. TIMWOOD in the blue corner and Mr. OTM in the red corner. Mr. TIMWOOD has knocked out many opponents and has an unbeatable record.

                          Mr. TIMWOOD is a virus who eats into all the hard-work that Transportation managers put into their business. He is not visible and his stealth features makes it difficult to detect him while the Transport managers feel its negative impact daily. He is immune to majority of anti-virus and tends to hide when it is attacked and then hits back with vengeance. Mr. TIMWOOD is WASTE. Value stream maps of transportation operations reveal that nearly 70%-85% of the activities in transportation operations are non-value added caused Mr. TIMWOOD.

                          These 7 wastes are:

                          T – Transportation which is excess is waste
                          I – Inventory held due to delayed move is waste
                          M – Motion of people who undertake monotonous work is waste
                          W – Waiting of inventory is waste
                          O – Over production by deploying higher capacity is waste
                          O – Over Processing by repeating the same activity is waste
                          D – Defects due to errors as a result of inadequate & accurate inputs is waste

                          Mr. OTM has capabilities not just to knock out Mr. TIMWOOD but also create security fences. With Mr. TIMWOOD out the non-value added activities reduce drastically which has not just a direct impact on improvement of On time and In Full transportation performance but also major savings of $$$$$.

                            Title: The Last Mile of Value Chain Execution

                            Speaker: Chris Burgess (Data Systems International)

                            Transportation Management has become a complex process involving worldwide networks of shippers and logistics service providers moving raw materials, parts, and finished goods through a global supply chain. This combined with ever increasing demands from customers for greater efficiency, necessitates greater accuracy, speed, and flexibility to manage all aspects of your supply chain.

                            OTM Customers are fighting slow cash flows and customer satisfaction issues that stem from having limited visibility of shipments once they leave the warehouse. However companies are reluctant to mobilize business processes due to the complexities of integrating disparate systems and ensuring the solution works offline—issues that strain IT departments with limited resources.

                            During this presentation and live demonstration DSI will highlight some of the issues organisations and customers face and how Proof of Delivery for Oracle Transportation management addresses these issues.

                            dcLINK® MOBILEApps™ Proof of Delivery (ePOD) is a ready-to-use mobile application from DSI that significantly reduces the order-to-cash cycle. The solution has prebuilt integrations into OTM to expedite the implementation process and features an electronic signature capture so shipments are confirmed and validated at the point of delivery. The captured signature is automatically updated into the client record and this can instantaneously trigger customer billing or supplier payments in the back-end system. These real-time updates allow companies to proactively address issues with pending shipments and notify customers of scheduling changes in advance, resulting in enhanced customer satisfaction. ePOD for OTM also works offline, so delivery personnel have accurate, up-to-date shipment information regardless of network connectivity. The off-network feature provides access to the full complement of application functionality, enabling drivers to complete transactions in a disconnected state. MOBILEApps Proof of Delivery was built using dcLINK, DSI’s flagship mobile application development platform. dcLINK supports the newest capabilities of iOS, Android, BlackBerry and Windows Mobile operating systems so employees can harness the full power of their mobile devices. The platform’s seamless integrated development environment (IDE) accelerates the design of mobile applications and enables technical and non-technical resources to rapidly modify evolving processes.

                            DSI is an Oracle Platinum Partner and is the leading enterprise mobility solution provider for Oracle enterprise applications.
