How a Large Manufacturer Saves Time and Money Using Spreadsheet Integration for BOM and Price Lists

Abstract:
At Toyota Boshoku, large quantities of data took a long time to enter into Oracle EBS and flow through to other key data systems; a common problem of successful, fast-growing companies. Manual data entry also resulted in errors between systems, causing inventory issues. After an evaluation of the solutions in the market, we found the right fit in using a third party MS Excel Oracle integration tool. See how we improved our Oracle BOM and Price List data management to recognize the significant time and resource savings.
