Parameters for Successful
 Supply Chain Implementations

The primary goal of any supply chain is to

1 satisfy customer needs and generate
pro ts. Supply chain activities begin with

a customer order and end when a
satis ed customer has paid for the
purchase (sales order ful llment, order-
to-cash, etc.) SCM, as with any other
enterprise-wide software systems, can be
successfully implemented when the
following are in place:
• A clearly de ned process- ow chart of
the organization specifying key chain of
commands for each functional area.
• Commitment to the project from
management and end users through
training.
• An understanding of expected return on
investment both in the short and long
term.
• Aligning all resources needed to ensure
smooth deployment such as existing
infrastructures etc.

There are a number of advantages to

2 building a Supply Chain system on top of


an existing ERP platform.
• An ERP system outlines a smart process

2 for the company to use technology to
automate manual or mundane work

1 processes therefore, making it easier to
streamline supply chain management

practices.
• ERP systems help to de ne roles and
responsibilities of di erent users and
ensure that ownership is assigned at
various levels. This is critical to managing
the various aspects of a supply chain
management system.
• ERP implementations also help users to
gain familiarity with technology systems,
terms and sets expectations making
transitions to supply chain management
applications smoother.

Integrating Supply Chain and


ERP systems
Most ERP vendors today, o er Supply
Chain Management components so
companies can implement both as part of
the same rollout.
The integration of ERP and SCM systems
is easier with the following
considerations:
• Business priorities: Is it ERP rst or
Supply Chain? In most cases, ERP starts
with nancials and corporate work ow,
5 and companies build on from here.
Shares
• Technology issues: If the ERP and SCM

2 systems are on similar technology
platforms, integration is simpler to

execute, decreasing time to ROI.
 • Cost of implementation: Companies
2
must consider and evaluate the cost
 impact of both systems being integrated,
1
or if the software only allows data

transfer.
• Total cost of ownership: There may be
cost savings and improved user
experience if both systems processes are
merged to reduce the points of data
capture.

Bene ts of Integrating ERP and


Supply Chain Systems
There are many success stories and
unfortunately much-hyped failures as
well. However, if most projects follow
some simple guidelines, companies can
increase the chance of success, deliver on
time, and proudly involve the relevant
group of users who utilize the system to
maximum gain. Some bene ts to look
forward to include:
• Improved e ciencies, lower costs and
improve productivity
• Ability to provide better services to
customers, and therefore increase
customer retention
• Increased ability to manage resources
through a streamlined process, and in
5 some cases, an automated work ow
Shares
• Leveraging IT to enhance the speed of

• Ability to cope with business changes in

the future and to adapt to changing rules

systems o er di erent bene ts to an
organization in terms of capabilities and
functionalities. Given the intra-
organizational and inter-organizational
advantages o ered by ERP and Supply
Chain respectively, integration of both
systems will provide a company with
substantial leverage over competitors.
However, it is pertinent that companies
rst identify and work on reducing and
eliminating non-value added activities,
processes and components in the
business. It is only when they start to
adopt a holistic view to e ciently address
enterprise needs that they will be able to
deliver their products and services with
speed, ease and quality.
