Transaction Processing and Enterprise Resource Planning Systems

Goal of transaction processing l.jpg
Goal of Transaction Processing

  • Provide all the information needed to keep the business running properly and efficiently.

    • Provide timely documents and reports

    • Provide data for other systems

    • Safeguard information

Characteristics of transaction processing l.jpg
Characteristics of Transaction Processing

  • One of the first business processes to be computerized

  • Performs routine operations on a regular basis

  • Provides data to other systems

  • High level of detail, accuracy, security

  • Limited support for decision making

  • A lot of input and output; large storage needs

  • Limited sophisticated or complex processing

The steps in tps transaction processing cycle l.jpg
The Steps in TPS(Transaction Processing Cycle)

  • Data Collection

  • Data Editing

  • Data Correction

  • Data Manipulation

  • Data Storage

  • Document Production

An overview of tps l.jpg
An Overview of TPS

  • The input includes basic business transactions

  • The result is that the organization’s records are updated to reflect the status of the operation at the time of the last processed transaction.

Batch vs on line transaction processing l.jpg
Batch vs. On-Line Transaction Processing

Batch Processing (original)

A system whereby business transactions are accumulated over a period of time and prepared for processing as a single unit or batch.

On-Line Transaction Processing (OLTP)

A system whereby each transaction is processed immediately, without the delay of accumulating transactions into a batch. Always current.

Transaction processing cycle data collection l.jpg
Transaction Processing CycleData Collection

  • Begins with a transaction (e.g. an order)

  • Manual or automated

    • Source Data Automation

      (e.g. bar code scanners)

  • Examples of data collection?

  • Validity and completeness

Transaction processing cycle data correction l.jpg

  • Feedback regarding errors

  • Opportunity to re-enter

Transaction processing cycle data manipulation l.jpg
Transaction Processing CycleData Manipulation

  • Performing calculations

    • Classifying

    • Sorting

    • Summarizing

Transaction processing cycle data storage l.jpg

  • Updating databases

    • An output of TPS

    • Input to all other systems

Transaction processing cycle document production l.jpg

  • Paychecks

  • Invoices

  • Packing slips

  • etc.

Control issues l.jpg
Control Issues

  • Business Resumption Planning

    • Identify threats

  • Disaster Recovery

    • Identify solutions

      • Backups

      • Hot sites

      • Cold sites

  • System Audits

    • Create an audit trail

Traditional tps applications l.jpg
Traditional TPS Applications

  • Order Processing

  • Purchasing

  • Accounting

Order processing support systems l.jpg
Order Processing Support Systems

  • Order Entry

    • Captures the data

    • Suggests substitute, related, or “add-on” items

  • Sales Configuration

    • Ensures that products and services ordered will work together to accomplish customer’s objectives

    • Suggests options and eliminates mistakes

Order Processing Support Systems

  • Shipment Planning

    • Determines which open orders will be filled and from which location they will be shipped and by what means.

    • Prepares a pick list

  • Shipment Execution

    • Coordinates and confirms the outflow of all products and goods from the organization

  • Inventory Control

    • Updates the computerized inventory records to reflect the exact quantity on hand of each stock keeping unit.

    • Minimizes cash tied up in inventory

    • Often bar-coded (www.milk.com/barcode)

    • Just as important for service industries (e.g. airlines)

Order processing support systems19 l.jpg
Order Processing Support Systems

  • Invoicing

    • Generates customer invoices based on records received from the shipment execution TPS

  • Customer Interaction

    • Monitors and tracks each customer interaction with the company.

      • Contact Management

  • Routing

    • Determines the best way to get goods and products from one location to another.

  • Tracking (UPS, FedEx)

  • Scheduling

    • Determines the best time to deliver goods and services.

What is enterprise resource planning l.jpg
What is Enterprise Resource Planning?

  • A collection of software packages, which ties all of an enterprise's various functions into a cohesive database. These packages affect everything from order capture to accounting and procurement to warehousing.

  • Employees enter information only once and that information is then available to all systems company-wide.

  • This means everyone in the company can make decisions based on accurate, real-time information.

For example l.jpg
For Example…

  • The sales force enters an order on a computer, and the transaction propagates through the entire company.

  • Inventory lists and parts supplies are updated automatically, worldwide.

  • The ERP system determines whether the product should come from current finished goods in a warehouse, work in process, scheduled production, or new production….

For example cont d l.jpg
For Example, cont’d.

  • Production schedules and balance sheets will reflect the changes.

  • Best of all, every employee has only the information necessary for the job at hand…

    • Salespeople can promise firm delivery dates

    • Managers can gauge almost immediately the effects of decisions affecting credit terms, discounts, inventory, or supply-chain management.
