The Business Process designs are intended to support an implementation of the merchandising products. These designs are a guide for both the business and implementation teams. They explain some scenarios and factors that need to be considered for a successful implementation. The designs are created for a generic retailer, with some considerations made for Hardlines, Apparel (Softlines) and Grocery. Hence, retailers may find that they wish to change the business processes to meet their unique needs, but the documents should provide a solid initial foundation.
This article gives information on how to use the Retail Merchandising System (RMS) Business Processes. The processes are written assuming that version 13.0 or higher of the following Oracle Retail products will be implemented:
- Retail Merchandising System – RMS
- Retail Invoice Matching – ReIM
- Retail Sales Audit – ReSA
- Retail Price Management – RPM
- Retail Trade Management – RTM
- Retail Allocations
While the processes are developed with the previous product set in mind, they can be applied to any retailer who has purchased the Oracle Retail merchandising products. There are four general audiences for whom these processes are written:
- Retail clients who have purchased and are implementing the Oracle Retail Merchandising Products
- Integrators and implementers who are implementing the merchandising products
- Business analysts who want to understand how the merchandising system can be applied to meet their business solutions
- System analysts and system operation personnel who need additional functional understanding of the merchandising products
- Any system not in the standard list above (e.g. store system, financial systems, warehouse system, etc.) does not have a step-by-step explanation within the process. The processes focused around the list of products above. Any other product referred to should be considered a generic product (warehouse system, planning system, etc).
- These business processes are tailored to the Oracle Retail systems; however, they do not include detailed technical information, such as interfaces or batch programs. Additionally, these documents should not be viewed as a substitute for product training.
- Each retailer will still modify some of the processes to tailor them to their specific business needs.
