Sierra Atlantic''s ECO Lens product has received the
''North America Oracle PartnerNetwork solution of the year
2004'' award in the industry solution category for its
value-add to streamlining the engineering change order
(ECO) management process and reducing excess and obsolete
are thrilled that Oracle has recognised ECO Lens as a
leading solution for engineering change optimisation,"
said Sarath Sura, managing director, Sierra Atlantic.
"This award further raises ECO Lens'' profile, and
we expect more Oracle customers to benefit from ECO Lens
to eliminate inventory excess and obsolescence costs by
optimising the date of product changes."
ECO Lens is an easy to use, browser-based composite analytic
applications that are deployed on top of existing infrastructure
with zero production downtime. It analyses product change
information from ECOs against supply and demand data from
various modules in Oracle manufacturing to arrive at implementation
scenarios for a number of effectivity dates for an ECO.
material dispositions and the corresponding cost impact
are presented for each implementation scenario. By assessing
the impact of a product change before release, users can
uncover hidden costs and determine the optimal date to
introduce product changes. ECO Lens helps customers realise
high return on investment
by reducing E&O inventory resulting from poorly implemented
product changes, reducing ECO cycle times and streamlining
the material disposition process tied to ECO.
