Diodes Brings Chengdu Plant onto Single Global Oracle Instance
By partnering with IT Convergence, Diodes implements Oracle EBS 220.127.116.11 and restructures Supply Chain operations in China.
Diodes Incorporated is a leading global manufacturer and supplier of high-quality, application-specific standard products within the broad discrete, logic, and analog semiconductor markets. Diodes Inc. serves the consumer electronics, computing, communications, industrial, and automotive markets.
Diodes Inc. was facing challenges arising from a very complex sales process that included many inter-company transactions. The supply chain operations were particularly complicated to manage, while the shipping process posed a special challenge due to the large volume of orders from around the world. IT Convergence had already worked with Diodes for its Shanghai Implementation in 2001. After the successful experience, Diodes decided to partner once again with ITC for the second phase of their global expansion project.
In only 6 months IT Convergence implemented nine Oracle E-Business Suite 18.104.22.168 modules for the Chengdu plant on a single global oracle application instance hosted by Diodes. IT Convergence designed an Oracle solution for SDC operation in Diodes Single Global Instance according to the company’s complex business process, including: drop shipment, regional warehouse replenishment, HUB process, authorization (RMA), HUB consignment and lot-based job integration with Legacy MES system. This business model included intercompany transactions for Diodes SDC, two China Manufacturing entities, Diodes Hong Kong, Diodes Taiwan, Diodes UK and US headquarters. ITC’s consultants also performed CRP1, CRP2 and UAT testing with the China and Global teams, and took care of all data conversion. After go-live, ITC provided post-production support and training documents through UPK; also offering training for Diodes Chengdu key users to ensure a smooth operation.
