New Products: Oracle Launches Analytic Applications for Manufacturing and Asset-Intensive Industries

In April 2012, Oracle launched two new analytic applications: Oracle Manufacturing Analytics and Oracle Enterprise Asset Management Analytics—the industry’s first in-memory analytic applications for manufacturing and asset management analysis.

Both solutions provide support for large numbers of concurrent users and are certified to run on Oracle Exalytics In-Memory Machine. The new solutions also include native support for tablet and mobile devices, such as the Apple iPad and iPhone.

“For manufacturing and asset-intensive industries, maintaining the health of critical assets and optimizing production and inventory is the difference between bottom-line business growth and failure,” said Gaurav Rewari, vice president of EPM and BI product development, Oracle. "These solutions enable customers to get intelligence into the hands of key decision-makers at the speed of business, wherever the job may take them.”

The Road to Profitable Growth
Most manufacturing organizations must manage complex operations while trying to plan in an environment where customer demand is uncertain. Other common challenges include rising quality expectations and slow order-to-cash cycles.

By integrating data from across the enterprise value chain, Oracle Manufacturing Analytics provides end-to-end visibility into manufacturing operations. It gives operations managers, manufacturing analysts, executives, and production cost accountants insights to help ensure
  • Inventory control—Boost revenue and reduce costs with analysis of inventory balances and inventory turns, transactions, bills of materials, inventory aging, and obsolescence
  • Quality control—Deliver the highest-quality products with root cause analysis of inspection plans and quality test results
  • Production costing and planning—Monitor and control manufacturing cost and future planned productions with prebuilt dashboards and reports
Maximizing Return on Assets
Most, if not all, enterprises depend on their business-critical physical assets to sustain their daily operations. Failure of such assets is not only disruptive but can mean losing business to the competition.

In response, Oracle Enterprise Asset Management Analytics helps organizations project expected asset life, develop strategies to reduce maintenance costs, and increase uptime of critical assets such as plants and machinery.

With Oracle Enterprise Asset Management Analytics plant and facilities maintenance managers, maintenance engineers, department managers, and supply chain executives are better able to manage assets and align operational and financial efficiencies. They can monitor asset performance, compare it to targets or performance benchmarks, quickly spot deviations, and take action to correct them before they become problems.

Leveraging Existing Oracle Investments
Oracle Manufacturing Analytics and Oracle Enterprise Asset Management Analytics are preintegrated with Oracle E-Business Suite and complementary to other Oracle Business Intelligence Applications—enabling cross-functional analysis across back-office and front-office business functions.
