      Call for Candidates Submission Deadline: 11:59 p.m. EST, November 8, 2013

      The OTM SIG invites you to join your colleagues and contemporaries to represent a collective membership of professionals dedicated to promoting, shaping and leading the future of Oracle Transportation Management. As an OTM SIG Board Member, you join a dedicated team of professionals working together to:

      * Help promote the ideals and activities of the OAUG in the region
      * Enable communication with Oracle on direction and strategy
      * Share information and experiences among users, managers, and IT professionals
      * Be a conduit for recommended enhancements to Oracle products or processes
      * Provide feedback to Oracle from the user community
      * Facilitate conferences, training and education among the user community
      * Provide representation for the OTM SIG at national and local events

      The Call for Candidates

      The OTM SIG bylaws authorize 11 voting members, 5 non-voting members, and 1 Oracle liaison on the Board of Directors. OTM SIG members elect 16 representatives to the Board of Directors from a slate of current, active members. The 2013 election will contain 8 open seats. Directors serve staggered, two-year terms. Directors represent the OTM SIG membership at large on policy issues, relations with Oracle Corporation, conference planning and overall user affairs.

      OTM SIG Board Organization

      * The OTM SIG Board positions include:
      * 7 Americas Client positions, 3 Americas Partner/Consultancy positions
      * 1 Oracle Liaison
      * 4 APAC/EMEA Client positions, 2 APAC/EMEA Partner/Consultancy positions
      * Board Chair is elected by the OTM SIG board following each election. Preference will be given to a board member that has served at least one year. In the best interest of the OTM SIG and in order to maintain the focus of the user based community, the chair role is limited to client candidates.
      * APAC/EMEA positions will be mentored to begin an outreach in the APAC/EMEA regions in order to gain a global presence with the OTM SIG.

      OTM SIG Board Openings for the 2013 election

      To ensure continuity of the OTM SIG direction and strategy, we do not replace our entire board membership at the same time. Rather, every year a portion of the board is re-elected. Regular participation in quarterly conference calls is required as well attendance at weekly board meetings and more frequent meetings leading up to our annual conference. This averages to approximately 4-6 volunteer hours per month and is essential for the board to function properly and to be successful in all of its endeavors. The board may have one annual planning meeting per year prior to the OTM Conference.

      * 3 Americas Client positions, 2 Americas Partner/Consultancy position
      * 2 APAC/EMEA Client positions, 1 APAC/EMEA Partner/Consultancy position

      1. OTM Euro Conference Opening

      We, OTM SIG board, are happy to announce the second European OTM User Conference held in Amsterdam. Following on from the success in 2013 of the first event, we’ve gone a long way to bring this conference nearer to a large number of Oracle Transportation Management users in Europe. The annual OTM User Conference in the U.S. is already well established since 2007, attracting an audience of almost 400 people and our event in Europe brings together over 100 users and specialists from across the region. This European conference again connects users from different areas of the business looking at both Transportation Management and Trade Compliance. The collaboration with the VCS widens participation by Oracle and the leading consulting companies in the conference to promote discussion of current issues and opportunities.
      2014 OTM User Conference is the excellent opportunity to bring together users from Europe and Asia Pacific regions to share their knowledge, experience and thoughts. All together we have accumulated many topics we can now discuss in an informal way with other users that we could not reach before.
      Considering your wishes based on the survey we had after the first European conference we have done all our best to make this conference even more comfortable, useful and open to OTM community from all over the regions. We are sure that everyone will find opportunities for networking with other OTM users.
      Besides encouraging OTM user initiatives to share their implementation experiences in the conference sessions, we worked together with Oracle and leading OTM consultancy companies to bring in new interesting presentations and possibility to discuss your hot topics.
      We are happy to see you all in Amsterdam!

      4. Implementing OTM Dock Scheduling by Paolo Magini (Reply Business)

      BIO: Paolo Magini is Manager and OTM Practice Lead at Business Reply. He participated to different OTM implementation projects in Europe, both with functional and technical roles. He is currently OTM Project Manager for CNH Industrial and Fiat Auto Group.

      ABSTRACT: OTM Dock Scheduling functionality allows the optimization of loading and unloading activities at pickup and delivery locations. By sharing a common view of shipment appointments, all parties can contribute to reduce queues, delays and operational costs of the warehouses. Greatest challenges to take into account when implementing Dock Scheduling on OTM 6.2 are low customizability (compared with other OTM functionalities) … and some little product defects. Working in close contact with Oracle Product Support is useful to solve these issues, but strict business deadlines may lead to a requirement revision or to other workaround. The aim of this presentation is to share some real-life experience and lessons learned implementing OTM Dock Scheduling module in different contexts.

      BIO: Sebastian Musch is a project manager at Lufthansa Technik AG, Hamburg, department Information Technology and application responsible of OTM since 2011. In 2010 he got a degree (B. Sc.) at the University of applied science in Mittweida.

      ABSTRACT: After several years of functional specification and implementation Lufthansa Technik rolled out Oracle Transportation Management (OTM) in November 2013.
      The integration of OTM into the current system landscape – achieved by a complex connection to multiple other systems inter alia the central business process management system – was considered as the main challenge. The incorporation of OTM raises Lufthansa Techniks transport logistics to the next level by enabling the planning and steering of external transport processes over the whole process chain. Thus, OTM empowers Lufthansa Technik to automate the whole outbound process, which includes operative planning, ordering of service providers as well as the preparation of all related freight document information.
      The first go live was realized at the central distribution center in Frankfurt which is a unique rollout location as it is built to hold the customer promise of performing the whole outbound logistic execution within 15 minutes after receiving the order. This requirement could be fulfilled by the utilization of the different OTM modules and constitutes a unique selling proposition of Lufthansa Technik in transport logistics and airline industry.

      ABSTRACT: Shippers have learned that a professional and state of the art carrier integration is a major success factor for a TMS project. All carriers are integrated, trained and supported in their mother language; the carriers use one portal to be connected with several shippers; this is the basis for a high acceptance of the platform by the carriers. Carriers do not use an OTM Web- interface but the TRANSPOREON platform, which is well known by more than 40.000 carriers all over Europe. The shipper’s staff work in their OTM system. The robust interface between OTM and TRANSPOREON ensures real time synchronization between both systems, e.g. carries book their timeslots in TRANSPOREON and the booking information is transferred into OTM. An OTM shipper can easily be connected to TRANSPOREON (plug and play approach). UPM is connected to more than 300 different carriers via TRANSPOREON.
