Oracle eAM in Action at Stanford

One of the highlights of MSCE 2016 for our Oracle eAM customers and for many others who attended was the site tour that was hosted by Stanford University. Nearly 50 customers and partners were able to visit Stanford's Energy Systems Innovation (SESI), which represents a transformation of university energy supply from a 100% fossil-based combined heat and power plant to grid-sourced electricity and a more efficient electric heat recovery system. This new system, along with Stanford's solar power procurement, is anticipated to reduce campus emissions approximately 68% from current levels and save 15% of the campus' potable water.

In addition, the tour group was allowed to see how Stanford uses Oracle in its Grainger@Stanford University facility, which manages over 9,000 SKUs and provides parts and supplies across the university campus for facility maintenance and the extensive construction projects taking place at Stanford.

For more information on the Stanford Site Tour and the maintenance track at MSCE, check out this blog from LNS Analyst, Dan Miklovic.

Supply Chain Management – All Anyone Needs for Christmas

It is a Christmas story almost as old as Father Christmas himself. Your child – seemingly for months on end – has dropped hints about the toy that they absolutely must have this Christmas. You are left in no uncertain terms that if the said toy should not appear on Christmas Day there will be consequences. But then, of course, you go to the shops to find that they have sold out.

It is a horror that no parent wishes to face – but it is also something that consumer goods companies want to avoid at all costs. The run up to Christmas is, after all, the busiest shopping period of the year and if manufacturers can capitalise on it the rewards are vast. Take the example of the UK where shoppers this year are expected to spend £1bn in just one day. Even considering that particular day is Black Friday this is a mind-boggling sum.

The Internet of Things, the Smart Supply Chain and Oracle
