Title Using Scoring in Ariba Sourcing
Owner- Robert Koczo
Moderator
Session
Format
Description 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
Session 2
answers into their decision-making criteria. In other words, the decision is not
11:30 - 12:45
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.

Title Creating Templates (ACM / ACW)
Owner- Robert Koczo
Moderator
Description 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.
Session 3
When creating projects or workspaces, one of the most important decisions is
2:15 - 4:15
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.
