Business Process Review Workshops
From July 7 to August 7, a series of 20 workshops will be facilitated by the EMMS Functional team to review key changes and efficiency gains for the go forward business processes with Phase 1 stakeholders. The workshops will identify any activities or tasks that may be unknown to the EMMS project team such as paper forms or spreadsheets that can be retired. The outcome of the business process review workshop will document end-to-end business processes in and outside of Planon and to support the creation of training materials.
The EMMS Change team is building a comprehensive training program to support staff to transition to Planon and related process changes. Training will help staff to:
- understand new Planon terminology
- learn about process changes as UBC transitions from paper-based forms to electronic forms and processes
- get comfortable using Planon’s functionality, interface, notifications and alerts etc.
- use mobile apps in the field including how-to’s to complete work orders
- use mobile apps in stores for inventory and stock management
We are busy creating training materials and a detailed training schedule.
The EMMS testing and functional teams have completed 1000’s of tests to ensure Planon is functioning as expected based on UBC’s configurations. Testing includes Planon functional areas, integration testing with other applications such as Workday and end-to-end testing which includes technical parameters such as single sign-on with UBC CWL. Testing will be ongoing to ensure Planon is fully configured for Go Live in November. In September, staff will be asked to participate in testing activities.
