Implementation of SAP
Before implementation The employees and management at Tata Steel faced a cumbersome task exchanging and retrieving information from the system. The reliability of information obtained was questionable because of inconsistency and duplication of data from different departments. There was no built-in integrity check for various data sources. Several times the information against certain items was found missing. Results of SAP implementation The manpower cost has reduced from over $ 200 per ton two years ago, to about $140 per ton in 2000. The overdue outstanding has been brought down from Rs 5170 millions in 1999 to Rs 4033 millions by June 2000. The inventory carrying cost has drastically deflated from Rs 190 per ton to Rs 155 per ton. With SAP's solution Tata Steel can now update their customers on a daily basis and provide seamless services across the country improving customer management. The availability of online information has facilitated quicker and reliable trend analysis for efficient decision-making.
