  • OTM SIG User Conference Europe 2014: Presentations

    Here are the presentations from the OTM SIG Conference for Europe 2014.

    I post them up here, in addition to the OTM SIG website, to provide a single place to get all of the presentations, regardless of year - and so that there is also another permanent record of them, just in case anything should ever happen. (We all work with technology - and sometimes the worst happens - it's always better to have a couple copies of important docs!)

    Title: OTM Euro Conference Opening

    We, OTM SIG board, are happy to announce the second European OTM User Conference held in Amsterdam. Following on from the success in 2013 of the first event, we’ve gone a long way to bring this conference nearer to a large number of Oracle Transportation Management users in Europe. The annual OTM User Conference in the U.S. is already well established since 2007, attracting an audience of almost 400 people and our event in Europe brings together over 100 users and specialists from across the region. This European conference again connects users from different areas of the business looking at both Transportation Management and Trade Compliance. The collaboration with the VCS widens participation by Oracle and the leading consulting companies in the conference to promote discussion of current issues and opportunities.

    2014 OTM User Conference is the excellent opportunity to bring together users from Europe and Asia Pacific regions to share their knowledge, experience and thoughts. All together we have accumulated many topics we can now discuss in an informal way with other users that we could not reach before.

    Considering your wishes based on the survey we had after the first European conference we have done all our best to make this conference even more comfortable, useful and open to OTM community from all over the regions. We are sure that everyone will find opportunities for networking with other OTM users.

    Besides encouraging OTM user initiatives to share their implementation experiences in the conference sessions, we worked together with Oracle and leading OTM consultancy companies to bring in new interesting presentations and possibility to discuss your hot topics.

    We are happy to see you all in Amsterdam!

          Title: Implementing OTM Dock Scheduling

          Speaker: Paolo Magini (Reply Business)

          BIO: Paolo Magini is Manager and OTM Practice Lead at Business Reply. He participated to different OTM implementation projects in Europe, both with functional and technical roles. He is currently OTM Project Manager for CNH Industrial and Fiat Auto Group.

          ABSTRACT: OTM Dock Scheduling functionality allows the optimization of loading and unloading activities at pickup and delivery locations. By sharing a common view of shipment appointments, all parties can contribute to reduce queues, delays and operational costs of the warehouses. Greatest challenges to take into account when implementing Dock Scheduling on OTM 6.2 are low customizability (compared with other OTM functionalities) … and some little product defects. Working in close contact with Oracle Product Support is useful to solve these issues, but strict business deadlines may lead to a requirement revision or to other workaround. The aim of this presentation is to share some real-life experience and lessons learned implementing OTM Dock Scheduling module in different contexts.

                    Title: Integration of OTM into Lufthansa Techniks outbound processes and sharing of first production experiences

                    Speaker: Sebastian Musch (Lufthansa Technik)

                    BIO: Sebastian Musch is a project manager at Lufthansa Technik AG, Hamburg, department Information Technology and application responsible of OTM since 2011. In 2010 he got a degree (B. Sc.) at the University of applied science in Mittweida.

                    ABSTRACT: After several years of functional specification and implementation Lufthansa Technik rolled out Oracle Transportation Management (OTM) in November 2013.
                    The integration of OTM into the current system landscape – achieved by a complex connection to multiple other systems inter alia the central business process management system – was considered as the main challenge. The incorporation of OTM raises Lufthansa Techniks transport logistics to the next level by enabling the planning and steering of external transport processes over the whole process chain. Thus, OTM empowers Lufthansa Technik to automate the whole outbound process, which includes operative planning, ordering of service providers as well as the preparation of all related freight document information.
                    The first go live was realized at the central distribution center in Frankfurt which is a unique rollout location as it is built to hold the customer promise of performing the whole outbound logistic execution within 15 minutes after receiving the order. This requirement could be fulfilled by the utilization of the different OTM modules and constitutes a unique selling proposition of Lufthansa Technik in transport logistics and airline industry.

                      Title: Approach to development in OTM projects

                      Speaker: Anastasia Goncharova and Anton Moiseev (CROC)

                      BIO: Anastasia Goncharova – Expert and Head of SCM at CROC. Anastasia has been working as an OTM functional consultant and business consultant since 2007 and has been in logistics since 2003. She has participated in more than five projects of implementing OTM as a Functional Architect. Now she mostly focuses on sales and developing business.
                      Anton Moiseev – Business Application Manager at CROC. Anton has been working as an OTM consultant since 2007 and been an IT consultant since 2005.

Now Anton is Lead of TMS functional consultants in CROC.

                      ABSTRACT: Usually we use three environments (instances) during development process: Development environment (DEV), Test environment (TEST) and Productive environment (PROD)
                      Approach to development includes several steps:
                      1. Defining functional requirements and preparing list of extensions for release.
                      2. Developing extensions and setups on DEV.
                      3. Creating ‘build’ with the components of extensions.
                      4. Using automatic procedures for transfer ‘build’ to TEST
                      5. Testing: (a) Using automatic test-cases (b) Backup procedure (uses if test-case has generated an error) (c) Additional manual testing (if needed)
                      6. Using automatic procedures for transfer ‘build’ to PROD Advantages of this approach: minimizing risks of critical errors on PROD and reduce time of development and testing for complex releases.

                              Title: OTM and TRANSPOREON a perfect fit – “plug and play” carrier connectivity how to combine the expertise of both systems

                              Speaker: Marc-Oliver Simon (TRANSPOREON) and Antti Ilovuori (UPM)

                              BIO: Mr. Marc-Oliver Simon is Managing Partner at TRANSPOREON, where he is responsible for strategy and strategic sales. Mr. Simon was co-founder of TRANSPOREON in 2000.

Mr Ilovuori has 15 year’s experience in global trade and logistics from industrial manufacturing.

                              ABSTRACT: Shippers have learned that a professional and state of the art carrier integration is a major success factor for a TMS project. All carriers are integrated, trained and supported in their mother language; the carriers use one portal to be connected with several shippers; this is the basis for a high acceptance of the platform by the carriers. Carriers do not use an OTM Web- interface but the TRANSPOREON platform, which is well known by more than 40.000 carriers all over Europe. The shipper’s staff work in their OTM system. The robust interface between OTM and TRANSPOREON ensures real time synchronization between both systems, e.g. carries book their timeslots in TRANSPOREON and the booking information is transferred into OTM. An OTM shipper can easily be connected to TRANSPOREON (plug and play approach). UPM is connected to more than 300 different carriers via TRANSPOREON.
