Methodologies

Auisy uses Oracle’s AIM (Application Implementation Methodology) methodology to implement Oracle Applications (ERP)

?



  • An AIM project is conducted in phases that provide quality and control checkpoints to co-ordinate project activities that have a common goal.
  • During a project phase, your project team will be executing tasks from several processes
  • Oracle AIM Project Phases as follows ( 6 Phases )


  1. 1.   Definitions
  2. 2.   Operation Analysis
  3. 3.   Solution Design
  4. 4.   Build
  5. 5.   Transition
  6. 6.   Production



1.  Definition

  • Plan the project
  • Review the organization's business objectives
  • Evaluate the feasibility of meeting those objectives under time, resource, and budget constraints
  • Emphasis is on building an achievable work plan and introducing it with guidelines.
  • Strategies, objectives, and approaches are determined for each AIM process

2.  Operations Analysis

  • Project team develops Business Requirements
  • Assess the level of fit between the business requirements and standard application functionality.
  • Gaps are identified and corresponding solutions developed.
  • Solutions for gaps evolve into detailed designs during Solution Design.

3.  Solution Design

  • Develop the detailed designs to meet the future business requirements.
  • Project team members create detailed narratives of process solutions developed during Operations Analysis
  • Supporting business requirements may require building application extensions to standard features
  • The project team carefully scrutinizes these solutions and chooses the most cost effective alternatives.

4.  Build

  • coding and testing of all customizations and other custom software
  • Coding & testing of enhancements, data conversions, and interfaces
  • Policy and procedure changes relating to business process modifications are developed.
  • Business system testing is performed to validate that the developed solutions meet business requirements.

5.  Transition

  • Deploys the finished solution into the organisation
  • The project team trains the end users
  • Technical team configures the production environment and converts data
  • Transition ends with the cutover to production, when end users start performing their job duties using the new system.

6.  Production

  • It marks the last phase of the implementation, and the beginning of the system support cycle.
  • The Information Systems (IS) personnel work quickly to stabilise the system and begin regular maintenance.
  • Provide the ongoing support to the organisation for the remaining life of the system.
  • Compare actual results to project objectives.
