KPI Partners completed a pilot project to deploy Supply Chain Analytics.  The quick start program was up-and-running in 5 weeks with Oracle Supply Chain Analytics loaded from Oracle E-Business Suite (EBS).   Overcoming performance issues with extremely large data volumes was part of the success criteria for the project.   The KPI team was able to resolved performance issues with a 200 million row database table sourced from Oracle E-Business Suite table.  The team also worked with Oracle Engineering to optimize the process of loading data into a Teradata database.

The Supply Chain Analytics application provides GE Healthcare better visibility into inventory and helps users determine variance between forecast and actual inventory levels.
