Oracle Fusion product information management solutions enabled POSCO to aggregate, validate, and share complete, standardized, and consistent product data across the enterprise by automatically searching and comparing millions of customer-order requirements with standardized product specifications, based on predefined business rules, such as steel-alloy composition requirements. By integrating Oracle Fusion product information management with Oracle Unified Business Process Management Suite, POSCO improved its ability to monitor the performance of the data validation processes and alert staff to missing information through integrated product dashboards to ensure appropriate review and remediation before importing clean and validated data to its ERP system. The enhanced data integrity, in turn, minimized the waste of human and material resources in steelmaking operations.
“Oracle Fusion product information management solutions, running on Oracle Exadata and Oracle Exalogic optimized system performance and further enhanced the accuracy and efficiency of manufacturing operations. We can now respond to customer inquiries in one day instead of ten days, dramatically improving customer service” said Kim Gyeong-Cheol, head of information infrastructure promotion group, POSCO.
