This learning path is based on a use case derived from a scenario:
Vision computers is an electronic manufacturer of special purpose and customized tablets. They follow the made-to-order production strategy in their order fulfillment flow. The other trading partners associated with Vision Computers are:
Typically, in a business flow, BigBox Retailer places an order for a tablet with Vision Computers. On receiving the order, Vision Computers plans the production and identifies that the battery and the audio components need to be ordered through third-party procurement. Vision computer places an order with Delta Audio which in turn outsources the order to Alpha Electronics. Alpha electronics directly ships the audio components to Vision Computer via Zeta Carrier. For batteries, Vision Computers places an order with Beta Batteries who then transports the batteries using Speedy Carriers.
The following diagram illustrates the various business flow steps that are involved in manufacturing the made-to-order tablet and shipping it from Vision Computers to BigBox Retailers:
In a traditional flow, Vision Computers neither has any visibility of the production of audio components by Alpha Electronics nor can it assess the quality of the product during production. To assess the audio components, Vision Computers need to wait until Delta Audio delivers them.
Similarly for batteries contracted to Beta Batteries, Vision Computers can verify their quality only after its delivery. Vision Computers wants to ensure that the batteries be kept at a certain temperature to avoid heat exposure that may cause batteries to explode, overflow, or become unstable. However, Vision Computers does not have any visibility or control over the storage and transportation conditions of the batteries.
VisionComputers wants to solve this issue by being able to share data with all its stakeholders and trading partners in a secure way, obtain an end to end visibility of the transactions in the entire supply chain network, and ensure the integrity of all the transactions.
Set up and configure the Oracle intelligent Track and Trace application for Vision Computers to enable it to obtain an end-to-end visibility of its entire supply chain network. Enable Vision Computers to effectively monitor and manage its assets, transactions and business flows. Provide a common platform to all its trading partners to share and track information in a secure and integral manner.
To implement the use case, you perform four major tasks, and in each task you complete the steps sequentially:
