Importance of Business Process Document in ERP!

Serpent Consulting Services Pvt Ltd is into ERP implementation since 8 years and have been actively working on various ERPs which mainly includes Odoo, Tryton, OpenBravo, ERPNext and TallyERP as main players.

As per our experience, 70% of ERP implementations fail. As an implementer, we see that the main reason is 'analysis' and transparency in showing up the complete business process. The other reason is, Bosses always want the ERP, but the operators/users do not!

From Panorama-Consulting
:

Baseball great Yogi Berra used to say, “If you don’t know where you’re going, you might not get there.”  This simplistic quote has survived through the years because it holds an undeniable truth – you need to have your direction and goal in mind before getting started or you’re likely to get lost and miss your target entirely. This saying can be applied to countless circumstances in life and an ERP implementation is no exception. Before you commit your time, effort, resources and money to a complex ERP project, you need to have a clear picture of where you want your business to be in the future.

The first step in determining where you want to be is to understand where you are. Knowing how your business currently operates and having business practices clearly documented is important for several reasons.

Knowing what you’re doing today and how it is done allows you to identify the unique differentiating factors that distinguish your organization from your competitors. This is important information to have when you’re headed into an ERP implementation because you can make sure you preserve the practices that provide competitive advantage. Without having your current state business processes documented, there is no way to ensure you are keeping the pieces that make your company stand out in the marketplace.

On the flip side of this equation, when documenting your current state business processes the inefficiencies involved often become obvious. The same exercise that allows you to identify and preserve the practices that give your organization its competitive advantage also gives you the opportunity to recognize areas where you can stand to improve operations. Ultimately, your business process documentation should serve as the foundation for the design of any new ERP software solution.

Even when inefficiencies are less obvious, having your current business processes documented helps to evaluate areas for process improvement. ERP vendors often have their software’s standard practices defined, which you can compare to your business processes by performing a gap analysis. Once you define the gaps between what you’re doing today and how the ERP software would handle a task, you can weigh the benefits and drawbacks to each method and make an informed decision as to how the process should be executed moving forward.

Another advantage of having clearly documented current state business processes is the reduction in the time needed to communicate with both internal and external parties. Whether you’re on boarding an outside consultant so they understand your business, training new employees in your company’s practices or proposing a new way to complete a task to your executive group, a picture (or well-structured, detailed procedure document) is worth a thousand words. This is especially true for complex business processes.

Being able to point to a standardized process document will also eliminate misalignment between individuals doing the same job. Without formal documentation, each employee in a certain functional area may have their own way to accomplish tasks, leading to arguments over the design of new ERP software. Such an inconsistency can wreak havoc on an ERP project’s timeline and budget.

Having clearly defined current state business processes is a distinct advantage that reduces the time, effort and cost associated with an ERP implementation. Clearly defined business processes can streamline communications, standardize system design and serve as excellent training materials. The upfront costs of putting together comprehensive process documentation will not outweigh the benefits.

From client's First:
Implementing a new ERP system, or upgrading to a newer version of the software, is a very time consuming process for any business. More often than not, the time needed for various stages of Implementation are highly underestimated and undervalued, including time needed for training, documentation, and testing. Additionally, in efforts to speed up a go-live date, companies often forego essential areas altogether, such as creating End-User Documentation.
    Importance of Business Process Document in ERP 
One of the biggest causes of ERP implementation failure is inadequate education and training. In order to avoid this, and ensure your team is fully prepared for testing and training in a new ERP system, it is recommended that companies create their own End-User Documentation. This documentation helps to ensure the new processes and tasks are understood, documented, and helps the team with testing.

Why can’t your Implementation team write your documentation?

Creating End-User Documentation entails knowing a company’s processes and procedures inside and out, and nobody knows this better than the client themselves. Additionally, creating the documentation helps to engrain the new processes and tasks in the memories of the team members and helps to further engage them in the overall Implementation.

What are the steps to create documentation?

Creating End-User documentation is a large and important task. The good news is that it can be broken down into smaller chunks over time, to become a more manageable project. Additionally, End-User Documentation is a work in progress and continues to grow and change as the Implementation project moves along towards go-live, and beyond. The steps below will help break out the various tasks into manageable pieces that should be integrated into the overall Project Timeline.

  1. Documentation Prep: This should be done at the beginning of your ERP project, before the Analysis/Design sessions. During this time, you should define your users and in-scope departments for the project. You may want to start breaking down each department into various groups. For instance, Accounting/Finance could be broken down into GL, AR, AP, etc.
  2. Choose a medium & create a template: Once you’ve finished with the documentation prep, you should have an idea of the overall outline for your documentation. You can now determine the medium for the document, whether it be printed or online. There are pros and cons for each medium, but for a complex implementation, such as ERP, an online format with links is a highly effective and useful format. You could use hyperlinks for key words, definitions, and graphics to help users navigate through the documentation. Finally, it is recommended that you create a template for the overall document. This will create a cohesive flow to the document with a more manageable look and feel to the end result.
  3. Design Work Flows & Test Scripts: After the Analysis/Design sessions in the Implementation, your new processes are set in place. You need to organize your new Work Flows and Processes and incorporate them into the documentation. A Work Flow is a series of related topics, presented in chronological order, as they occur in your business. An example would be:
    1. Create a Sales Order
    2. Create a Delivery
    3. Post Goods
    4. Create a Billing Document
    5. Enter Customer Payment
    6. These areas would then be broken down further into steps to complete each function, also referred to as Test Scripts.
  4. Testing: The goal for the “first draft” of the documentation should align with the Project Team Training phase of your project. You can have your team use the documentation created during their training sessions, and they can make notes accordingly on changes/revisions needed. This is also the time you want to test the system using the documentation created to ensure the Work Flows and Test Scripts are correct. If you’ve created online documentation, rather than in a printed format, you’ll want to test out the links you’ve created to ensure they are working properly as well.
  5. Modifications: After the Project Team training and testing, you should modify the documentation based on training/testing results and comments. It is also recommended to add a section, or incorporate “most common errors” or “common questions” into the documentation and steps to address those concerns.
  6. Final Testing/Review: After your modifications are complete, the Documentation is now ready for the End-User Training portion of the Implementation. It should be in place for their training and testing. Their comments and revisions should be incorporated as well prior to go-live. Ensure users are aware of documentation and know how to access it,
  7. Post Go-live: Processes and procedures change as a company grows. It is essential that the documentation is updated/changed accordingly as your business evolves.
From Sage ERP: This post will hopefully give some tips and tricks and useful ideas as to how to  analyze business processes.
  1. Analyze the right processes.  Focus first on the ones that are most important to the organization. Also focus on the processes that are broken vs those that are working. Others may have to be analyzed but having priorities will ensure the most value is obtained from the work performed.
  2. Start with a simple process vs a complex one. Use the simple process to refine your skills at analyzing and documenting the processes and move to the more complex processes as time goes on.
  3. Identify the key players. Make sure that the those key to the process are involved. We want to ensure their opinions are sought. Even the most clerical person may reveal elements to the process that senior management are unaware of.
  4. Identify bottlenecks in processes. It is important to try eliminate bottlenecks so they do not remain when moving to a new ERP. Significant value can be obtained from implementing a new ERP but often this value comes from eliminating inefficient processes that could have been improved with the previous ERP.
  5. Actually record and document the process.  Create a process flow diagram using flow chart software or use a pencil and a ruler or just use text but document, document, document.  Even if the information is not accurate to begin with the documentation will prove to be invaluable at some point in the future. Check out this document on creating business process flow diagrams.
  6. Test the above. Have an independent person test the above documentation. Have them walk through the process or observe other walk through the process. This ensure the process has been documented accurately and removes any unintended bias.
  7. Modify the process documentation based on the testing. Business processes change constantly and will need to be modified constantly. This exercise may have to be viewed as a long  journey vs a short trip. For ERP implementation purposes there are many processes that will need to be document quickly so that changes in the processes can be evaluated before the new implementation.
If at an organizational level you do not feel this can be accomplished consider hiring external resources to complete this task. Thanks.

ODOO Consulting - Reducing dependency on the vendors

Larger companies are often seen to opt for Open Source Enterprise Resource Planning commonly referred to as (ERP) because of its customization options and economic viability. To meet the core business needs, a new interface is needs to be created outside the regular system to keep up with the organizing part of the company.

ODOO Consultancy integrates software solutions with the management of the entire resources of the business, does inclusive planning, inventory management, processing of orders, accounting, purchasing, human resource, financing and more. As the company and its entire source content is owned by one unit single-handedly, there remains no dependency on the vendors. This is where the Open Source ERP is brought into the picture which pulls together the ultimate task of implementing the software.

 The benefits of using an ODOO Consulting are:

 Benefits outweigh the costs of the system, as the system that is selected is appropriate from all the aspects be it features, cost or even the technology standpoint. This provides one with an integrated system which overviews all the operations that are performed.

 The workflow and efficiency are maintained properly with improved and well-run processes. This helps in the reduction of inventory costs to a greater extent as the requirements are shortlisted quite early.

 Avoidance of duplication of data, hence the redundancy is reduced in a much greater extent. Broadening of the vision of the decision maker by bringing forth uniform processes which stand upright on the foundation of the best-admired business practices.

 Distribution of the information among the departments for better visibility of accounts, E-commerce ODOO, reduction in billing or delivery errors.

 Access to information improves over a large scale as the dependency on humans decreases. The quality of the output is made better along with the span getting shorter hence leading to customer satisfaction.

 The ODOO developers make very crucial back-end systems for any particular business. The Developer should know best the implementation method and the custom fitting for the exclusive requirements of the business.

 Hiring an ODOO developer requires them to be skilled, experienced, and to have the insight of the work field to maintain and uplift the standards of services of all the projects ensuring satisfaction to every client. The person should be efficient at:
Working in the ODOO framework like installation, implementation, hosting and configuring completely.

 The modules should be customized as per their specific requirement by the ODOODeveloper. Maintenance and support of the training are to be ensured by the hired ODOO Developer and also the training of the employees to do so. Operation of the ODOO e-commerce system and the setting up of the electronic point-of-sale is also to be done by the ODOO Developer.

For installing the Aeroo Reports (aeroo_reports) modules this script assumes you already have the following directory:

/opt/odoo/custom

and

/opt/odoo/custom/addons

and it also assumes that your /etc/odoo-server.conf file includes the following directory in your addons_path line, for example:

addons_path = /opt/odoo/odoo-server/addons,/opt/odoo/custom/addons 

Ubuntu 14.04 Aeroo Reports installation method:

#29    cd /opt/odoo/custom

Evolution of the Web – from ARPANET to dotNetNuke

ARPANET which stands for Advanced Research Projects Agency Network, became the technical foundation of the Internet. It was the first network which implemented the protocol suite TCP/IP and was also an early packet switching network. It was funded by Advanced Research Projects Agency (ARPA) and later by Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency(DARPA) of the United States Department of Defense. To formulate general communications among computer users, the earliest ideas were designed by computer scientist J. C. R. Licklider of Bolt, Beranekand Newman (BBN), in April 1963. Today Internet is far ahead of its ARPANET beginnings. In the beginning, around 1969, communication between computers was made for researchers to exchange information especially when US was under threat of nuclear attacks. In 1990s, Microsoft undertook the commercialization of the technology of Internet and today Internet has reached new heights in terms of the scale to which it impacts society. The earliest web programmers faced the most difficult situations. Back then, designs were very simple, yet it took meticulous codes to be able to make the sites work; it was not as easy as it seems today. As a result of these difficulties, veteran programmers were forced to come up with something to make web designing more convenient. DotNetNuke web service is one such technology through which dynamic and functional websites can be created using easiest and flexible tools both for personal and professional use. The DotNetNuke web service originally evolved out of the IBuySpy Workshop which was created by Shaun Walker. DotNetNuke Community Edition content management system i.e., DNN platform is an open source software whose intention is to allow management of websites without much technical knowledge. The look of a website can also be changed using DNN platform. DotNetNuke web service has revolutionized the availability of an exhaustive web-content management system which could earlier be done only by high-profile organizations due to extensive costs involved. Using DotNetNuke, website creation and management is no longer a challenge for a common person. DotNetNuke custom modules offer multiple advantages to users ranging from cost-efficiency to technical ease. It can be easily downloaded from the Internet and used without any licensing requirements. Installation is also easy due to usage of auto-install feature by most web-designing companies. Non-technical users can also easily use this content management system. It has a feature that defines the program's section for inputting and altering text and graphics. A user can, therefore, isolate manipulation of text and graphics without affecting either one. This is one of the major conveniences DotNetNuke differs old school web programming languages in this respect as these require users to begin from scratch without providing any options when designing a page with graphics and text. This was made more difficult as changes in graphics affected changes in text and vice versa. Vevocart web service can help developers to develop specific software service to support special requirements without modifying Vevocart original source code. Before using Vevocart web service, web service’s configuration needs to be set up as the developer must log in by only specified account while using service in another application. SerpentCS is one among such companies which can provide flawless services in the domain of DotNetNuke. With a number of satisfied clients all across the world, SerpentCS has become a leader in this market. For more info, check www.serpentcs.com or Kindly Contact Us.
