With five plants, Butterball has a disparate technical environment that
includes a mix of Windows and AS/400 applications as well as SQL Server and
Oracle databases. Integration projects have included various EDI/B2B
improvements that have increased automation by increasing trading partners'
participation in Butterball's EDI program; connectivity between the company's
transportation management system and the 3PLs handling shipments; a
vendor-managed inventory (VMI) implementation that pushes inbound planning
information to the company's JDA demand and forecasting software and the
resulting orders into SAP; and more.
The projects have helped Butterball solve supply chain and technical
challenges ranging from heavy peak season volumes and rapid order turnaround
requirements to batch processing delays, growth in trading partner numbers and
serialization issues on inbound shipments.
Butner's session is scheduled at 3:30 p.m. Tuesday, May 14. The complete ASUG
agenda is available at
