Informatization construction is divorced from the actual production or logistics enterprises of enterprises when they talk about the information needs, they just say that they see other people scanning commodities with handheld terminals very fast, so they want to introduce similar information systems themselves; other enterprises do not classify and organize the logistics operation process, and draw a few sketches and directly outsource them to software developers for system planning and development. Some enterprises, under the lobby of software developers, rush to make decisions and set up projects once encouraged.
Such understanding of logistics informationization and cases that do not understand the enterprise's informationization needs are ubiquitous and incomplete. Such development and establishment work often lays the groundwork for the failure of the final informationization construction.
From the case of failure, most enterprises often adopt the method of headache doctor and foot pain doctor to deal with the information needs of enterprises, that is, to solve one-sided problems in a certain logistics operation link or part rather than from the perspective of the whole logistics system. As a result, the software modules developed are incompatible with each other and can not achieve the unification and cohesion of the system. 。 Although there are already software systems to support operations in each part, it will also promote the improvement of automation degree of logistics operations in some parts. However, due to the independence of each link, the whole enterprise's logistics network platform and nodes can not achieve smooth information flow. Informatization has not promoted the improvement of overall automation degree, which greatly reduces the operational efficiency.
The effective way to avoid blindly setting up projects in the stage of decision-making preparation is to hire logistics informationization experts to give special guidance to the informationization work of the enterprise. The functional coverage of the system platform and application logic should be selected reasonably in strict accordance with the needs of the enterprise itself. At the same time, the systematicness, overall situation and integrity of informationization construction should be seen.
2. The choice of developers is not scientific. Many enterprises tend to choose developers who are familiar with themselves or recommended by acquaintances when choosing software developers. Enterprises always think that they are familiar with or recommended by acquaintances will be more reliable in reputation. From this point of view, the enterprise seems to be right. But if developers have only developed some small-scale applications and have no ability to develop backbone logistics information system, the final result of this choice may not satisfy the enterprise. Meaning.
Therefore, when outsourcing logistics information construction to software developers, enterprises should not take familiarity with developers as the main benchmark for selection, but should observe, analyze and compare developers carefully, and make comprehensive evaluation based on a number of criteria, such as comprehensive investigation of developers'visibility in the logistics industry, developers' technological research and development capabilities, etc., and ultimately with contracts. Formal identification of partnerships with appropriate software developers.
Five key technical capabilities for selecting software developers? What are the technical expertise of developers?
