We are headed back to China for a week on Friday. This time around, instead of Powerpoints, we are going to be prototyping the implementation between us and a third party logistics (3PL) vendor.
The prototype will focus on the sales order life cycle and is expected to take 1-2 weeks.
Our team is mainly focused on providing consulting and best practices to the vendor to help enable both parties to reach a mutual goal of successful integration. At the end of the engagement, if the vendor has a solid understanding of the process involved, it will be up to them to implement the remaining interfaces.
Today begins the downhill slide into Friday and the checking and rechecking to make sure we aren't forgetting anything that we might need while on site.
