Determining Planon Stream 1 Functionality

Following the Planon Accelerator Workshops in July, EMMS is focused on consulting the Phase 1 Process & Outcomes Committee members to determine Planon functionality that will be implemented to align with Workday’s April 2020 time frame for HR and Finance. The Accelerator Workshops provided UBC with an overview of Planon’s best practice processes to help determine what configurations are needed to meet UBC’s operational needs.

Key business decisions will be made for Stream 1 to ensure UBC is able to effectively continue maintenance management, inventory and asset management activities when Planon goes live. During the EMMS Summer Roadshow, we’ve communicated the intention is to deploy Planon “light” in April 2020 with additional Planon functionality to be implemented in the fall of 2020.

The main activities in August include:

  1. August 6 – 30– Complete EMMS Summer Roadshow with Phase 1 stakeholders (75% of Phase 1 stakeholders met)
  2. August 6 – 30 – Meet Process & Outcomes Committee (POC) weekly to review key business/operational decisions

Deliverables this Month

  1. Key business decisions and direction will be reviewed with the Steering, Process & Outcomes Committee and as applicable with the Integrated Renewal Program (Workday) Process & Outcomes Committee for sign-off.
  2. Finalize EMMS Project Plan and share a roadmap of what to expect in the coming months.
