A.I.M. Methodology Summary

Application Implementation Method is a proven approach for all the activities required to implement oracle applications.
The scope of the AIM is focused on an enterprise as a whole.
There are eleven processes of implementation.
1. Business Process Architecture [BP]
This phase outlines:

  • Existing business practices
  • Catalog change practices
  • Leading practices
  • Future practices

2. Business Requirement Definition[RD]
This phase explains about the initial baseline questionnaire and gathering of requirements.
3. Business Requirement Mapping[BR]
In this phase the requirements of business are matched with the standard functionality of the oracle applications.
4. Application and Technical Architecture [TA]
This outlines the infrastructure requirements to implement oracle applications.
5. Build and Module Design [MD]
This phase emphasizes the development of new functionality (customization) required by the client. It mainly details how to design the required forms, database and reports.
6. Data Conversion [CV]
Data Conversion is the process of converting or transferring the data from legacy system to oracle applications.
Ex. Transferring customer records from the legacy to the Customer Master.
7. Documentation [DO]
Documentation prepared per module that includes user guides and implementation manuals.
8. Business System Testing [TE]
A process of validating the setup’s and functionality by QA(functional consultant) to certify status.
9. Performance Testing [PT]
Performance testing is the evaluation of transactions saving time, transaction retrieval times, workflow background process, database performance, etc…
10; Adoption and Learning [AP]
This phase explains the removal of the legacy system and oracle application roll out enterprise wide.
11. Production Migration [PM]
The process of “decommissioning” of legacy system and the usage(adoption) of oracle application system.
