Oracle Supply Chain Management

The management of complex global supply chains can be challenging. From Planning through Execution, it would be convenient to have a road map from those with expertise in the discipline. The Supply Chain Operations Reference outlines the entire business process. The Overview Booklet is free to download, while you willl have to register to get ont the site for the detailed reference model.

The ideas outlined can be found in the Oracle Supply Chain Solution, which includes not only Advanced Procurement, but also Supply CHain execution, PLM, Advance Plannning, Manufacturing and Transportation Management, among others.

For global manufacturing and distribution companies, an efficient Supply Chain Management proces is a critical success factor to ensuring margins are maintained across complex trade, tariff, tax and regulatory boundaries. The risks inherent in managing a global supply chain are also further complicated by fluctuating foreign exchange, ensuring secure supply lines, managing supplier relationships while recognizing time zones and cultural diffferences.

The consulting SME will review these risks against standard SCM risks matrices, verify secure and efficient electronic transaction processing exchanges follow best practices, while also validating that approproate COSO controls are in place throughout the business process.
