        OTM Challenges for 4PL's - How to implement and manage a broad customer base by Tobias Schlimpen and Joao Goncalves (Kuehne + Nagel)

        The presentation will first give an overview of KN IL (4PL) and the different business models we offer. We will describe how we embedded the different business models into OTM and the auxiliary systems. The main part will outline how many different customer domains (50) and instances and versions we are running. It will outline process integration with OTM and our customers, warehouses and carriers - from fully automated to completely manual (because of the business of our customer).
        Within KN we will show how we as 4PL do the aggregation of all Modes of Transport (Road, Sea, Air) from Order Management, Transport Planning, Tracking to Freight Settlement. We will present to the audience how we implemented specific Pharma requirements (known as GDP - Good Distribution Practice) in OTM and how our auxiliary systems are supporting us and where we see potential for OTM.
        The third part will outline with which guidelines and processes we control the implementation across the globe and how we handled the recent upgrades while implementing new customers. In the end we will present the recent technical challenges we are facing and our improvement ideas to utilize OTM as a 4PL tool.

          In OTM, if planning module is the Alpha Male, wouldn't settlement module be a passive-aggressive partner? by Pawan Sharma (Infosys)

          In OTM workshops and implementations, faced with preconceived notions, settlement module has had a rather strange life. Some clients use OTM only for its planning optimization and nothing else. There are some who use settlement module only for integrating carrier invoices the output of which is extracted for reconciliation in E-Business suite or some other system. This paper highlights OTM solutions where settlement portion resolved some of the complex logistics requirements. Examples include implementations from different geographies including Europe, and business nuances that drove these customizations. Sometimes, the best solution may be to handle the requirement in an upstream system. We will be focusing on integrations here.

            How to tune OTM Performance in Integration/Planning and Automations from both a technical and functional perspective by Dominic Long and Daniele Patetta (Oracle Consulting)

            The performance tuning method used by Oracle Consulting EMEA consists in an iterative approach from both a technical and functional point of view:
            1. Analyze the machine performance: Threads utilization and Cache hits,
            2. Max out the threads utilizations on the topics that were used the most,
            3. Analyze the full functional configuration,
            4. Break down the processes in several sub-processes and
            5. Analyze processes one by one trying: Optimization of the process itself, Substituting the functionality with a less time consuming one
            Once these five steps are accomplished, if the desired level of performance is not reached yet, start again from step one. This exercise needs to be performed keeping an eye on solution quality (especially regarding planning).

            Dominic Long, Technical Consultant, Oracle
            Dominic Long is a Technical Consultant with many years of OTM experience during which has helped a large number of customers with performance and infrastructure in addition to carrying out implementations.
