CP-96:  3 Reasons to Revolutionize Your Costpoint Solution

     Tuesday, November 15: 08:45 AM – 09:45 AM National Harbor 2

Does this sound like your Costpoint System? 1. Rapid integration of acquisitions has resulted in a “”hodge podge”” of configuration and data 2. You haven’t incorporated new or have underutilized functionality 3. Executives struggle to get consumable data they need for optimal decision making Does the system not jive with your way of doing business and is now more inefficient than ever because of the old design? Transformation means changes to important structures (i.e. organization, account, project) that have for the most part been in place for a long time. Economic dynamism, growth, mergers, internationalization, consolidation and diversification can be significant drivers of such changes. They affect the technology as profoundly as they affect the business itself; therefore, it’s time to address these issues with our proven strategies.

CP-81: The best ‘waze’ to get to destination ‘MRP’!

     Wednesday, November 16: 10:05 AM – 11:05 AM National Harbor 13

Looking to embark on that next leg of your manufacturing maturity journey to leverage full MRP planning? Unsure of which turn to take first and how long it will take? This session provides clarity to all the tasks to perform, potholes to avoid and the most effective route to utilizing Costpoint MRP planning. It also covers the significant enhancements made in Costpoint 7.1.1. No manufacturing organization is too small or unique to realize significant efficiency improvements by automating the planning function. Leverage lessons learned from those who have traveled this route before.
