What is Oracle AIM Oracle AIM provides templates for all the tasks that require them. . what order they should be completed in. and what resources are required The methodology is purpose built for Oracle Applications and the detailed deliverables produced are designed with the Oracle Application products in mind. Oracle AIM is a methodology showing what tasks are required.
It comprises a set of well defined processes that can be managed in several ways to guide you through an application implementation project. • It defines internal. external. . • AIM provides the tools needed to effectively and efficiently plan. and time sensitive business events and maps each event to the responding business and system processes.Oracle AIM . • AIM defines business needs at the beginning of the project and maintains their visibility throughout the implementation. • Client gains an accurate understanding of the business requirements that need to be focused on during the course of the implementation.Advantages • Oracle's AIM is a proven approach for implementing packaged applications. and control project steps to successfully implement business solutions. conduct.
A process is usually based on a common discipline. code. . A task is a unit of work. and deliver projects. schedules. I.Structure A phase is a chronological grouping of tasks. It enables a flexible way to organize tasks. e reports. or test results for example.Oracle AIM . which results in a single deliverable. A process is a closely related group of dependent tasks which meets a major objective. schedule major deliverables.
• During a project phase. your project team will be executing tasks from several processes • Oracle AIM Project Phases as follows ( 6 Phases ) – – – – – – Definitions Operation Analysis Solution Design Build Transition Production .Oracle AIM – Project Phases • An AIM project is conducted in phases that provide quality and control checkpoints to co-ordinate project activities that have a common goal.
Oracle AIM – Project Phases • Definition – Plan the project – Review the organization's business objectives – Evaluate the feasibility of meeting those objectives under time. – Solutions for gaps evolve into detailed designs during Solution Design. resource. Establishing scope early in the implementation gives the team a common reference point and an effective way to communicate. – Strategies. objectives. . and budget constraints – Emphasis is on building an achievable work plan and introducing it with guidelines. and approaches are determined for each AIM process • 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.
and interfaces – Policy and procedure changes relating to business process modifications are developed. . • Build – coding and testing of all customizations and other custom software – Coding & testing of enhancements.Oracle AIM – Project Phases • 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. data conversions. – Business system testing is performed to validate that the developed solutions meet business requirements.
• Production – It marks the last phase of the implementation. and the beginning of the system support cycle.Oracle AIM – Project Phases • 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. – Compare actual results to project objectives. – Provide the ongoing support to the organisation for the remaining life of the system. – The Information Systems (IS) personnel work quickly to stabilise the system and begin regular maintenance. .

10. Try to avoid Word. Ensure to fill the open and closed issues on all updates if any. Avoid providing internal intranet URL etc for reference. Excel. 9. Stick on to the Project schedule to submit the documents on time. Documents prepared by one person must be reviewed by another before submitting to Client.Get a sign off from client and as well as from PM on all docs. 7. reviewer with dates and approvers with version controls details in all documents. 3. PPT attachments to the templates. Collect enough details from client to prepare the process flow. Follow the documentation principle like Preparer. 4. Follow the uniformity in using templates across all modules.Some Recommendations 1. 6. . 8. Follow the Oracle Custom standards while preparing Technical Docs. 5. 2.
