  2. Agenda Review Process/Approach taken Review Core Team Review some technical details… Questions and Answers (maybe!) Wrap-up

  3. The Process or Approach Taken: CRPs

  4. The Process or Approach Taken: CRPs CRP Definition: –CRP is a Conference Room Pilot –Prototyping, according to APICS …a CRP is “a product model constructed for testing and evaluation to see how the product performs before releasing the product to production” –In this case: Product … Oracle Applications 11i Testing and evaluation … The upgrade to 11i via CRP Product to Production … Releasing 11i to the end users!

  5. The Process or Approach Taken: CRPs A typical upgrade using the CRP method goes like this…

  6. The Process or Approach Taken: CRPs Some important things to keep in mind: Liggett upgraded from 10.7 to 11i (11.5.6) in … ‘2003 Preserving/reusing Upgrade/Testing material : Reusing Upgrade/Testing Materials saved time & money! End-users … (familiarity, reproducible results) Auditors …

  7. Just like riding a bike! The Process or Approach Taken: CRPs An upgrade using previous CRP documents goes like this…

  8. The Process or Approach Taken: CRPs An upgrade using previous CRP documents goes like this… • Technical Upgrades are applied • Rudimentary testing is performed • Repeat until successful • Patches/Fixes/Setups/Profiles • User Unit testing • User Acceptance Testing • Final approval • …and then • Select the GoLive date, and • Upgrade production!
