The day will begin with Ian Steel from Eli Lilly giving an Overview of the company.

Chris Axton from Eli Lilly will deliver a presentation on Global Architect Production Planning. This session is about Eli Lilly and creating an integrated pharmaceutical network. Rather than build, own or control every capability in the supply chain they are outsourcing processes to vendors whose expertise and capabilities are greater than our own. A new version of Supply Network Collaboration (SNC 7.0) To implement SNC 7.0 as a ramp-up project they also needed to upgrade SCM 5.0 to 7.0 as a ramp-up project. They'll describe some of the new features of SCM 7.0 and their experiences in assessing, testing and implementing SCM 7.0 prior to general release.

Phil Gwynne from SAP will present to the group SAP's SCM Evolution to Being More Responsive.
Topics included will be:

  • Being Responsive and Extending the Supply Chain with Collaboration.
  • SAP APO Update and Partner Products.
  • Controlling Performance with SAP's SCPM Solution

SAP has been evolving its SCM solutions not only to better fit specific industries but more importantly to be more responsive to market demands to give greater flexibility whilst still trying to reduce working capital.

This will be followed by a Problem Corner where you are invited to bring your thoughts, problems or questions for discussion with the group.

Craig Dale from the SAP User Group will deliver a 2009 Conference Update.
