Match customer requirements to the best possible solution
Ensure the valid product during Order Entry
Provide the Guided selling with configuration Capabilities
Provide real-time feedback on the impact of user selections.
Challenges during implementation:
During the configuration process, Telkite found that the Oracle Configurator usage is cumbersome in validating the Configured item components, its price and cost in one step and also need to switch between multiple modules to configure model which increases the Engineer to Order cycle and the time to fulfill the order for Configured Product.
Main Challenges are:
No Single View of Information – need to switch between modules for validating information
No information sharing between departments and lack of communication
Validate rollup cost and price without creating and progressing order
No Proactive decision making Tool which makes the Engineer to Order Process Iterative for any changes
Manually delete Configured Item(used for testing cost and Price) BOM/Routing
Reprice features and option for a configured Item available only during Order Configuration process.
