The chemical division of an integrated petroleum company engaged CSC to evaluate opportunities for further improvement in their existing ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) infrastructure. Working with the management client team, CSC identified five areas of special promise. The tactics included reengineering of key business processes, capture of best practices through applications of information technology, and commitment to a program of continuous improvement. The framework for the effort came from CSC's experience with the Four Levels of Supply Chain Optimization, as described in Advanced Supply Chain Management, by CSC's Chuck Poirier.
