Time/Day

In this workshop, you will learn how to effectively use the Scoring functionality in Ariba Sourcing. Frequently, organizations running RFxs have a need to incorporate subjective answers into their decision-making criteria. In other words, the decision is not always about the price or total cost of an item. In these cases, you may choose to ask the suppliers questions as well as their pricing for the items or services. When the supplier responds, you can either have the system calculate how good that response is, based on pre-configured criteria, or you can have team members assist you in the grading process. All of this and more will be addressed in the Using Scoring in Ariba Sourcing workshop.

Lunch Track Title OwnerModerator Description Session 3 2:15 - 4:15 Robert Koczo In this workshop, you will learn how to build templates for either projects or workspaces in Ariba Category Management, Ariba Contract Workbench, Ariba Sourcing Professional, or Ariba Contract Management. When creating projects or workspaces, one of the most important decisions is selecting the correct template. How did those templates get there? How can you modify them? What if you need to add an additional template? All of these topics will be covered in the Creating Project/Workspace Templates workshop, in addition to topics like conditionalizing template parts (i.e., how do I make a certain commodity-specific document only appear when the project is for that commodity?) and testing your templates.
