Pre-ERP Scenario at Maruti


Maruti deployed an extensive extranet to reach business partners
in 1990
At Maruti, daily activities managed by small apps running on
dealers PCs
Dependency on home grown disparate systems to manage LOBs
Different divisions followed different workflows preventing real
time access to critical data
High turnaround time and human dependence
Information Asymmetry leading to high costs
Phased
or Big
So Should
Bang?
Maruti Change?
How
about
Oracle,
the
SAP or
costs?
any other?

What if
the
system
fails?

Implementation: Phased Or Big Bang?


Maruti Suzuki decided to go with the phased
approach and moved to Oracle e-business suite

BIG BANG

No need for temporary interfaces


Limited need to maintain legacy
software
Cross-module functionality
No going back
Lower cost if no surprises

PHASED
Smoothing of resource
requirements
Able to focus on a particular
module
Legacy system fall back
Reduced risk
Knowledge gained with each
phase
Finance-
Oracle consultants were
involved in the process

Procurement-

Adhere them to high quality std. , tight deadlines, lessen

small and big suppliers

Numbers: Cloud ERP implementation

Recommendations
Company can integrate other modules with the
existing ERP functionalities:
1) Oracle Advanced Supply Chain module
2) Oracle Enterprise asset management
With more consumers preferring SUVs, it can
pose a threat to Marutis market share. Maruti
must try to establish its foothold in this segment
