EXAMPLES OF HOW THE JD EDWARDS ORCHESTRATOR IS BEING USED IN THE REAL WORLD
Ndevr’s Anne Thiele recently stayed awake on behalf of all of us to ensure she could watch live, the recent Quest JD Edwards Orchestrator week that was held online.
Thanks to her nocturnal activities, we are now able to share with you examples and some insight into the ways in which the JDE Orchestrator is being used by companies around the world (the USA) to streamline processes and automate tasks or integrate.
Printpack Use Orchestrator to Integrate Their Customised Customer Web Ordering Storefront:
This presentation was delivered by Stephanie Hatcher & Christel Craig of Printpack.
Printpack are a packaging company based in Atlanta USA, they have adopted a 3rd party customer portal which acts like an online storefront for their packaging and printing products.
In this presentation they discussed how they are using the Orchestrator to integrate their 3rd party customer portal with JD Edwards.
In their presentation they highlighted that not everything needs an orchestration. They adopted use of the Orchestrator where no standard business service existed and where the JDE Application had been customised. Using an orchestration allows them to take advantage of the custom logic without recreating anything.
They are using Orchestrator in the following areas:
- To create a production sales order and related work order
- To request a change to existing orders
- To request the cancellation of an order
Using an orchestration allows them to take advantage of the custom logic without recreating anything.
JB Poindexter use JDE Orchestrator with JDExcelerator to Improve the Accuracy and Speed of a Manual Data Import Process:
JDE Orchestrator Import of Part Numbers, BOMs, Routings and Attachments for Engineering to Order. Boyan Vukichevich – J.B. Pointdexter & Co, Inc.
JB Poindexter are a Diversified Manufacturing company servicing the automotive sector. One of their business units creates hundreds of new automotive parts weekly which involves all the related BOMs, Routings and attachments.
Before the introduction of the JDE Orchestrator, IT used to import parts, BOMs, routings and text attachments. This would result in inconsistencies which resulted in a lot of back and forth between the business end users and IT.
After the implementation of JDE 9.2, the IT team were able to build an orchestration and calling the information from JDExcelerator – an Oracle validated excel add-in, to import the information interactively. JDEXCELERATOR returns JDE errors directly back into the excel spreadsheet, so users can fix the data and rerun immediately.
Penn Engineering Print Labels from JDE Through Orchestrations
Muhammad Ahmed Matthew Hall- PennEngineering
Penn Engineering use an orchestration to send the label information to the label printing software.
They then trigger the orchestration from the shipping process to print the labels.
They explained that it took just 4 hours to design the orchestration and one day to develop and test.
