Mobility in Manufacturing: Points for Consideration

Clearly, we are living in a mobile world. At the 2015 Oracle Value Chain Summit last week, if you looked in any session room or in the hallways, you could see people on their mobile devices doing things like checking email, tweeting, taking pictures and arranging their schedules. During the sessions, there were some fascinating presentations and demos across all Value Chain solution areas on using mobile technology to perform critical business tasks such as managing and maintaining remote assets, reporting equipment issues and providing status reports on inventory.

During one of the Manufacturing solution area keynotes, Mobility in Manufacturing, LNS Research President and Principal Analyst Matthew Littlefield presented on industry trends. He closed out the session with a few recommendations that companies might want to consider as they develop their mobile strategies:

Mobile Technology is Revolutionizing the Manufacturing Environment

In 1876, in the midst of the industrial revolution, inventor Alexander Graham Bell succeeded in making the first telephone call. 97 years later, in 1973, the first mobile call was made. Since then, it is an understatement to say that mobile technology has grown by leaps and bounds. Mobile technology is leading another industrial revolution--one in which manufacturing processes and procedures can be greatly managed and executed from devices small enough to fit into a pocket.[Read More]

Unique by Design: The Noble Energy Story

The Oracle Oil & Gas team recently released this video featuring Noble Energy of Houston, Texas. Noble Energy was the 2013 Winner of the Oracle Oil & Gas Industry Excellence Award. This transformational video details Noble Energy's use of Oracle products, which includes Oracle ALM and includes some of the following quotes:

On Sustainability and Maintenance: Oracle enables Noble Energy's "Integrated Development Plan. This is something that can create tremendous value. It really enables us to see cost efficiencies both on the drilling completion and facilities side and on the operating side too. What it does for our community and areas is that it reduces our footprint, reduces emissions, it takes trucks off the road. IDP is a master plan that enables sustainable, responsible growth with less equipment and fewer facilities."
On Project Management and BI: Oracle "makes these sorts of projects possible, to do them on-time, on-budget, or ahead of time or under budget. And without that analytical capability to bring it all together and manage it and redirect and shift, the probability of over-runs and delays and not meeting your objectives, in my experience, goes up.

Introducing Oracle Supply Chain Event Management

We're honored to publish an article from guest author, Steve Tonas... Enjoy! 

Introducing Oracle Supply Chain Event Management

By Steve Tonas, Vice President, E-Business Suite Development, Oracle

It’s no secret that managing a supply chain is an incredibly complex and risky process. Global competition, increasing customer expectations and shifting business models are just a few of the factors that supply chain management professionals have to navigate as they seek to build and operate world class value-chains that can support profitable growth.

To help customers tackle these challenges, we have introduced Oracle Supply Chain Event Management for the Oracle E-Business Suite. Based on Oracle Fusion Middleware, Oracle Supply Chain Event Management helps organizations manage complexity and risk by providing visibility into events across every link of the extended supply chain. And this doesn’t just include events within your organization. With its advanced analytics, the new solution can also correlate external events to help organizations stay on top of all activities that could impact the supply chain process.

Managing risk and complexity is obviously important, but what if we could also simplify processes? Well, with Oracle Supply Chain Event Management, that’s exactly what we are able to do. The new release includes preconfigured event tracking templates for order fulfillment and spare part orders, while also allowing customers to take advantage of built-in extensions for Oracle JDeveloper. The extensions enable customers to quickly and easily design, edit and generate an end-to-end event tracking application with situation detection and targeted alerts.

By simplifying processes and reducing supply chain risk and complexity, Oracle Supply Chain Event Management helps organizations increase customer satisfaction, reduce costs and improve collaboration. Customers are happier as they have real-time updates into their order status and ultimately receive less late shipments, while end-to-end visibility into supply chain events reduces costs by supporting faster decision making and real-time action. Effective collaboration through context-aware responses and notifications help make all this possible by ensuring appropriate action can be taken to avoid any escalations.

Of course this isn’t the only solution Oracle offers for supply chain executives. In fact, Oracle Supply Chain Event Management builds on the existing Oracle Supply Chain Management applications portfolio, which provides a comprehensive solution to power information-driven value chains.
