Objective:

Our Global production and Manufacturing client in the greater Atlanta area was reviving a failed ERP implementation and was in need of a hands-on, strategic Project Manager. The solution required strong full lifecycle implementation experience, technical acumen, business analysis, and excellent leadership and communication skills. More specifically, the Project Manager needed to possess strong project ownership and serve as the liaison to communicate with the development team to implement several Dynamics AX modules.

Business Challenge:
One example of the business challenges was regarding data integration. The Transportation module was eliciting erroneous data due to changes in the steps made by the 3rd party vendor outside of the test environment. The solution our consultant provided was to come in and scrub data, create data correction and add new data inserts as well to reverse the damage done.

•Handled production workflow.
•Production solution delivery

Results:
•Project was delivered on time and below budget.
•Only 26 issues were reported and only 1 was business critical.
•Streamlined the Supply Chain operational processes.
