Supply Chain Event Management (SCEM) is defined as an application supporting control processes for managing events within and between companies in real-time.
This integrated software functionality supports five major business processes including the ability to monitor what is happening within the supply chain, notify the right person in case of a delay or critical event, simulate activities, control your processes and measure your supply chain activities so that you can adapt your business process and make it more effective and efficient. In the graphic you see which core services exist in a SCEM system.
Through these services it is possible to receives updates to events and provides proactive alerts and responses to events throughout the supply chain.
You can take advantage of SCEM to support business in
- Monitoring and Tracking our Supply
- Sharing supply data globally
- Notifying the right persons at the right time when an exception occurs.
- Enabling event reporting
Capabilities of SCEM Application
Helps monitor and track end-to-end business transactions in the Supply Chain by providing a unified view of the business transactions spread across heterogeneous systems.
- Ability to monitor various notable events of a logical end to end transaction in multi-tiered supply chain including activities carried out by the supplier, carriers, to provide visibility beyond your department, beyond your company, to detect an exception and potentially automatically trigger a remedial action.
- Ability to correlate various notable events in multi-tiered supply chain and raise alert for action if delay or non-occurrence of one notable event impacts future activities of the same or other multiple transactions.
- Ability to view real-time auto-refreshed BAM dashboard showing progress and exceptions in color coded display of logical end to end transactions covering all notable events from begin to end throughout the supply chain.
- Ability to trigger email notification based on actionable exception to the transaction occurring in-house processing or during the vendor side processing.
- Allows real time detection and monitoring of business situations and exceptions from huge volumes of event data coming out of numerous sensors and systems, making it ideal for operation managers to quickly respond and take corrective actions.
- Ability to subscribe to an external event streams such as traffic alerts, Sensors, RSS feeds, RFID feeds , synthesize and correlate that massive date with state of the transaction in the system to arrive at potential exception or an action.
- Ability to identify trends and raise an actionable alert.
- Ability to filter out routinely progressing events automatically, and focus only on exceptions thereby improving efficiency of Logistics staff.
- Provides flexibility in modifying Alerts on a live production system without re-generation or re-deployment of the artifacts. Ability to declaratively change the recipient of the alerts/ notification
Oracle BAM Dashboard tracks end-to-end Field Service process too:
- My Oracle Support for issue capture
- E-Business Suite for Field Service & Spares
- Global Trade Management for export compliance
- DHL to track part shipping logistics
Oracle Supply Chain Event Management (SCEM) architecture components are as follows
- External Event Sources like B2B messages, Enterprise Event Sources like EBS, Fusion and other Enterprise Applications act as input sources.
- Events relevant to the business process are defined in the Situation template, which are then processed in the mid tier by Oracle Event Processor (OEP).
- Event Routers pick up the relevant events and get the payload associated with the events from the input systems and form the Logical Transaction Object which is cached using Coherence.
- The Situation Processor, or the CEP component, applies the business rules to the stream of events and evaluates them e.g pattern matching, aggregation etc., and arrives at the situation to be monitored which has critical business impact.
- The output (response) of the Situation Processor is sent to the Visualization layers such as BAM dashboards or mobile devices along with alerts and notifications
The current SCEM implementation uses the following Oracle components and technologies from Oracle Fusion Middleware (FWM):
- E-Business Suite R12.1.3+ (Business event source)
- Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g, (126.96.36.199.6) PS5
- Oracle Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) 11g [SOA composites]
- Oracle Event Processor (OEP) 11g [Processing events/logic]
- Oracle Business Activity Monitor (BAM) [Optional: Presentation layer]
- Oracle Coherence 188.8.131.52 [Caching infrastructure]
- Oracle TopLink [Persistence Modeling]
- Client technologies
- Oracle JDeveloper 11g (PS5) [SCEM Designer - Design Time, customizations]
- Eclipse IDE (Galileo) [Customizations - optional]
