Larry Dooling, former CIO and VP Operations of Opnext Inc, will provide a presentation to the Oracle Applications User Group (OAUG) Advanced Planning Special Interest Group (SIG) on Tuesday, July 14, 2009. Mr. Dooling has agreed to repeat the presentation that he provided at OAUG’s Collaborate09 conference in May 2009 to a wider audience of the OAUG community via webcast!
Mr Dooling will explain how Opnext Inc implemented Oracle’s Advanced Supply Chain Planning application in 2008 to improve their scheduling processes and communication across their extended supply chain. Like many companies in the Optoelectronics manufacturing space, Opnext outsources the manufacture of some finished goods and subassemblies to contract manufacturing partners. Opnext utilized Oracle ASCP to model their entire supply chain including the inventory, WIP, and constraints of their supply chain partners.
The implementation leveraged the use of the following Oracle ASCP capabilities:
1. Ability to collect trading partner supply chain information by using ASCP legacy collections and multi-company planning ASCP features.
2. The use of a two level ASCP scheduling methods to most effectively manage constrained planning operations with critical components and bottleneck resources.
3. Integration with Oracle Global Order Promising
