Transcript of Untitled Prezi
In order to reduce cost, LEGO implemented a restructuring plan until today
LEGO outsourced part of their manufacture to Flextronics and reduce their labour cost
From a manufacturer, LEGO slowly switch to a marketing oriented firm, to react faster to changing global demand Question 2 Explain why distributed architectures are flexible Question 1 Question 4 Question 3 Identify some of the business intelligence in SAP's business software suite Advantages and Disadvantages of multiple databases in a distributed architecture Explain the role of the database in SAp's three-tier system Presented by Group 5 Lego: Embracing Change Combining BI with a Flexible Information System Third tier- consists of one or more relational databases, it contains the table that store data on products, daily operations, supply chain and thousand of employees.
It stores the data – business data, system tables, SAP programs – all conceivable data which may be present in a SAP system. The Third Tier The database layer consists of the database system - the database and DBMS (Data Base Management System). Managers are able to easily use the SAP query tool to obtain reports from the databases
Does not require any technical skill
Distributed architecture enables authorised personnel to have direct access to the database system from the company’s various locations
Europe, North America, Asia Distributed Architecture at Lego DSA delivers this integration amongst multiple systems while retaining a coherent, global security scheme.
Allows easier addition of new system equipment without affecting the operation of current equipment.
Future-proof the investment - expand the system without completely replacing it
With distributed traffic management there is no additional bandwidth requirement for existing sites as new sites are added, ensuring minimal impact as system capacity grows Efficiencies are achieved through the transfer of information between clusters of interested users, rather than between individual users.
Therefore, if multiple users are interested in the same data on another site, the request is sent only once.
Extremely efficient with its network usage, allowing satellite and other low bandwidth/high latency networking possibilities.
DSA being a single integrated system also does not require any dedicated networking and can leverage existing WAN infrastructure.
Firewall friendly features allow Distributed System Architecture to adapt to existing firewall configurations to allow existing infrastructure to be used. Why is it flexible? Distributed System Architecture allows multiple Process Knowledge Systems (PKS) to operate as one across multiple units, sites and facilities across the enterprise.
This single integrated system enables seamless global access to data, alarms, alerts, interactive operator control messages and history across groups of systems. What is it? Daily activities
