Project Manager

Responsibilities:

  • Worked with Sales Orders in Pharmaceutical Industry from an end - to-end perspective. Worked with all details of Sales Orders in JDE. This included but was not limited to: Interfaces from numerous and various customer sources, EDI Sales Orders, Change Orders, Advanced Shipping Notices, and many other transactions in both EDI and portions of the software affected: examples would be inventory, Purchasing, Sales, Finance, Manufacturing,.
  • Managed Confidential technical resource, Customers Senior IT Manager and OTC expert, on creating an EDI Matrix Map analysis which reduced maps from 270 to 18. That is a 90% reduction in maps. If the customer would reduce the number of older mapping versions supported, they could reduce this to under 15 or a 95% reduction in maps. Since this customer is in an industry where they are purchasing competitors this could be huge time savings as growth continues.
  • Inventory - showed the customer how to use the units of measure tables in JDE properly.
  • Replaced custom EDI process that used middleware (MS Access and others). This reduced processing EDI Orders by one day. In addition, customer since JDE not being used properly was going into intermediate files (i.e. system code 47) and converting incorrect customer units of measures. This created errors on the Outbound 856’s and fines were incurred by the customer.
  • Procurement - looked at what they were doing in this area and recommended improvements and recommended and showed the customer how simple it would be to add an outbound 850; simple to do and easy to explain.
  • Put a plan together on a job that in the Statement of Work was devoid of a plan for Electronic Data Interchange.
  • Successfully implemented the customer on-time and on-budget.
  • Worked with the financials lead to insure that the DMAAI’s (Distribution and Manufacturing Accounting Instructions) properly supported the customers’ business requirements.
  • Consulted with the manufacturing consultants on the conversion programs on inventory, BOM’s, and Routings.
  • Was on data conversions team which converted records from SAP to JDE in all files necessary: Inventory, Purchasing, Sales, Routings, Bills of Materials, and many other areas.
  • Reported to Manager from Confidential and one of the Project Leads from the customer side.
  • Extensive experience with conversions on Bills of Material, Routings, Work Centers, Items (Masters, Branch Plants, locations, costing, etc.
  • Helped architect the Product Costing and Manufacturing Accounting approach on JDE for customer. This included but was not limited to PDM, SFC, and Requirements Planning.
  • Lead for 2 Major EDI implementations one in New York, the other in Chicago. Spearheaded matrix mapping concept which reduced number of maps by 93%.
  • Reengineered inbound - EDI process from a modified access data based rip-n-read system which took 24-48 hours just to edit and prepare 47 files for processing, to making it a seamless process using the JDE Base UBE with modifications for customer specific information necessary to store and return back to the customer on outbound documents. Tag files which have been a key part of my implementation since 1996 were the tool of choice.
  • Work on inventory process improvement team relating to cycle counting, data collection and overall inventory accuracy at both locations.

Project Manager

Responsibilities:

  • In-depth analysis on Inventory Controls and Interfacing of all subsystems and detailed POC (Proof of Concept) and reconciliation proving my methodology built around Oracle E1 8.12 solutions. Numerous in-depth recommendations around tighter internal controls were documented and presented. Presented concepts to Upper Management (V.P. and Directors). Templates provided to client will allow them to pick up their inventory accuracy exponentially as programing and inventory experts are made available.
  • Advised on upgrading of 8.12 JDE E1 to 9.1. Reviewed many of the external interfaces they were using to update inventory from their detailed warehouse control system. Came up with a plan to go back to basics in JDE and us the existing programs JDE delivers. Analyzed tables where these transactions were being written and found hundreds of “orphan” records that were never successfully updated and were still awaiting completion.

Manager

Responsibilities:

  • Two successful Pharmaceutical implementations:
  • Second customer Gathered data, analyzed, and created plan with RAR (Returns. Adjustments and Allowances) team. Was on planning committee which successfully completed our task.
  • 8.12 to 9.1 recommendations on 450 programs were reviewed and categorized as well as confirmation system created with employee coders to alleviate records being passed to Company Sales Dashboard subsystems and not being updated in third party system. Recommended and showed how base JDE files and programs could be used thus saving customer money; both in custom code, upgrade of that code, and issues with their code.

Senior Lead Consultant

Responsibilities:

  • Worked in the energy business with a company who was into various products: {Propane, Refined Fuels, and Lubricants to name a few}. Reported directly to Vice President.
  • Recommended Advanced Stock Valuation as a solution for the fact agreements were made with different vendors at different prices (supplier price - their cost) and those layers of cost need to be applied to cost of goods sold on a consistent basis.
  • Designed along with BA (Business Analyst) an inbound transaction which created a sales order and then also a Purchase Order. Used base JDE files with custom tag files for customer specific data which had to be maintained. This interfaced with a customer front end that allowed the customers to select the agreement they wished to use for pricing purposes. If no customer selection, process ran through a custom JDE allocation (i.e. commitment) process which used logic specific to the customer.
  • Gathered all requirements for all processes relating to the customer: This included: Agreements, Items and all related records, Customer quoting process, BOL (Bill of Lading - electronic and manual), Customer facing front end to allow assignment of agreements to order, Sales Orders, Purchase Orders, Ship Confirm, Invoicing, Receiving, Three-way matching.
  • Custom system built for accounting to allow matching up of sales order agreements to purchasing agreements for purposes of matching which costs applied to which sales orders to produce month-end revenue. This was a three day manual matching process that we designed a solution which would allow automatic assignment based on rules relating to the dates the two documents were created. Application developed in case specific assignment of costs to a sales order was necessary.
  • Worked with Traders, Buyer’s, Sales analysts, Pricing persons to understand the non-item related transactions (Swaps, Options, Buyouts, extensions) that affected both forecasting and invoicing. These processes were all manual prior to implementation.
  • Replaced over 50 custom processes written by programmers with custom code with base JDE software processes. This was an education issue as the client was never properly trained in the full functionality of the software.
  • Used work orders to allow capture of custom costs related to the manufacturing process.
  • Crafted solutions which supported the financial side of JDE and reduced manual recording of data to spreadsheets and manual journal entries.

This included managing the translator relationship (Inovis) for the client.
  • Developed/Tuned/Tested/Trained all pertinent personnel on the “Header and Detail Tag Files” for all inbound and outbound processing. This automated processes in JDE that relied on multiple UBE’s and keyed value’s which could be subject to customer change and therefore invalid values. This type of system made full analysis of the Inbound 850 orders possible on line using the Data Browser as well as custom forms created for the client.
  • Worked in cross functional capacity with the Manufacturing person at Corning Data Systems and the client to insure costing reflected what the client required, and that JDE was maximized to its full potential.
  • Assisted extensively in the conversion process relating to BOM’s (Bill of Materials), Routings, Costing, and Sales Orders from History, and Open Sales Orders. Used base JDE functionality (47 files and UBE processes) where practical, modified (was the design person on modifications not the programmer)
  • Encouraged the client to start a more active dialog with their customers to utilize and capitalize on the systems that had been developed for the client.
  • Encouraged the client to fully integrate the Production Schedules from the customers (Inbound 830’s) into their procurement and fulfillment process.
  • Product Costing and Manufacturing Accounting Consulting advisory role. Reconciliation of legacy inventory to JDE first time inventory. Development of Product Costing cost components. Worked closely with manufacturing consultant and client to insure smooth process.
  • In-Charge for the costing discussions and trouble shooter when the Senior Manufacturing person did not understand the integration and the GAAP concepts necessary to do the job.
  • Reviewed all the setup they had for their Kanban situation they were using. Issue was a custom UBE (Batch Job) that was passing corrupt data to a file that was being used in the integration process.
  • Worked extensively to upgrade the customers’ knowledge as it related to Setup in Inventory, Purchasing, Sales, Product Data Management, Costing, and many other fields to allow maximum usage of the total end-to-end integration of the product.
  • Tested many of the manufacturing processes along with the Manufacturing lead whom I had worked with previously to allow a double resource in multiple area’s: (Manufacturing, Product Costing, Manufacturing Accounting, Sales, Purchasing, Inventory, EDI, and all journal entries created to the General Ledger from these integrated processes)
  • Worked extensively with their bar-coding process and sales order entry to give a full-proof shipping process utilizing the tying together of Manufacturing, Work Orders, Sales, Bar Coding, and numerous other processes.

Senior Consultant

Responsibilities:

  • Reported to customers Distribution Director.
  • Reengineered the Distribution process (Sales Orders, Purchasing, and Inventory Management) to follow the JDE standard order activity rules.
  • Utilized Interoperability processes and the import process within JDE to automate conversion processes such as product cost methods and dollars, physical inventory at go-live. Physical was done on client old system, a file was generated and imported to the standard JDE inventory file with a physical inventory document type. Had an EDI sales order process also to load legacy sales orders, however, this was not used so users could practice by loading the go-live orders.
  • Assisted with the conversions of the BOM’s (Bills of Materials) and Routings. This was a huge undertaking as the organization had moved from BOM’s and Routings that were huge and 1 level deep to a parent/child that allowed lead times on the subassemblies that had to be made to complete the product.
  • Lead the Product Costing and Manufacturing Accounting implementation. With the issue’s mentioned on the master files (BOM’s and Routings), this was not a simple matter as we were constantly assisting the engineer’s and the Production Inventory Control personnel in this process by using the cost roll’s to analyze whether the BOM’s and Routing’s appeared accurate (using cost as a gauge)
  • Assisted President of the company in utilizing the JDE flexible cost method’s to allow analysis of multiple cost methods. Client was changing from an actual cost system to a standard system and using the different and multiple cost methods (standard 01-19) and non-standard (20 and above), we were able to allow analysis on a part-by-part basis.
  • Utilized the cost extra’s (X cost components) to add cost’s that were not in any master files (freight-in, packaging, etc.) to be added to the purchased as well as end products. Also used the tables in costing to allow a change to cost to be rolled through many products; this related to the
  • Reviewed the interface of existing new product introduction custom software and how this would be interfaced to JDE Engineering Change Order Process.
  • Lead the client in implementing Kanban for the small inexpensive items they used to manufacture their product.
  • Reviewed integrating the Kanban with a third party software to allow B to B full integration. This included EDI in JDE and using a translator to send the data directly to the Supplier.

  • Converted and reconciled 7200 physical inventory locations in three separate facilities. This included interviewing receiving, shipping and other warehouse personnel (managers and hourly persons)
  • Completed over 15 improvements to production processes that were inconsistent with “world class” EnterpriseOne setup. One example was having requisitions (long process at this client) as part of what EnterpriseOne considers available. This created shortages due to the timing (dates of the requisitions)
  • Completed conversion plan to move inventory quantities, costs, and locations from the legacy system to EnterpriseOne. This would have included new physical to stock status variance analysis they previously took 3-4 days to complete. We estimated 1 day to complete in EnterpriseOne
