Developing fully Operational Ports and Terminals

Developing fully Operational Ports and Terminals

Following were the business Challenges and Opportunities while going through the project:

-The existing ERP was unable to support business processes

-Heavy use of Manual Processes during operational flow of the port due to which there were high level errors and weak process integration

-Primarily Excel based Planning of Preventive Maintenance Schedule was being practiced

-There was no single view of operation, and hence business Critical Processes were not automated due to which financial closure was slow and unreliable

-The instability in the user community against management, Inefficiency and errors where pretty evident. Which resulted in high cost due to un-optimized utilization of resources

 

Application Area were:

-IFS 7.5 SP2

-Enterprise Asset Maintenance

-Team of 4 members were involved in this project

Ports and Terminals

Following were business benefits, once the problems were overcome:

-There would be streamlined and painless operations

-Implementation of Trusted system would result in satisfied users

-There would be massive reduction in maintenance costs since there would be 100% elimination of manual work orders

-Single view of the organization in one system would be maintained which would result in timely and smooth periodic Financial closure

-Analytics reports would be available to all key users and hence this would help in easy roll-up in global structure with standard definition

-99% accuracy in Inventory
