Charles Darwin said: It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change. The same is true for organizations in the new, globalized economy. Companies have to build flexibility into their supply networks to enable more rapid responses to ever-changing business conditions. Add to that todays changing trade compliance and sustainability issues, and the need for a responsive network becomes even more pressing. To help organizations the information age, with the introduction of sophisticated technologies, has made apparent vast Supply chain and logistics efficiencies. As a result, supply chain technology has been one of the fastest growing segments in the information field. The pace of change has been accelerating for transport and logistics organizations after global freight capacities eased over 200809. Their customers now want everything faster and more predictable. We came up with our concept of the project which was instantly accepted The project is done after a year of study and possible implementation stage The total initiative for the project is taken by Inspace technology thru myself and is provided a technology solution for SUPERMARKET PONNU BAZAAR AVADI CHENNAI Enterprise resource planning (ERP) is business management software that allows an organization to use a system of integrated applications to manage the business.

INTRODUCTION
This work provides a complete picture of the underlying skeletal structure that holds every supermarket business together while achieving its goals. The Supermarket model introduces a comprehensive framework for managing the complexity of a supermarket structure, and a reusable blueprint for visualizing how a supermarket company actually does business. The models clearly-defined core-processes and their functions provide a powerful baseline for improving business performance. By viewing a supermarket business as a single functional system, the nature of its underlying core processes becomes clear. Then by managing and improving them as parts of a single system, substantial improvements can be made on critical success factors, such as lead-time requirements and the precise availability of stock when needed, throughout the SUPPLY CHAIN. The method used to develop this Supermarket Model is a collaborative adaptation of an earlier technique called Integrated Modeling Method. That method showed how every business enterprise has the same inherent system structure. This new supermarket model incorporates basic elements of that method, with major improvements and a much clearer understanding of how a supermarket business operates in todays world-wide market environment.

Scope and Focus of the Supermarket A supermarket business enterprise is a large, very complex structure, involving many component entities: An array of repeat customers grouped in various local areas. A chain of retail stores. Various transportation systems. A set of warehouse distribution centers. An array of product suppliers under contract. A supermarket exists in a competitive environment, where it acts as a value-added intermediary between geographically dispersed supplier companies and the scattered individual customers who eventually buy their products. In carrying out its function, a supermarket business acquires and assembles a wide assortment of goods from individual suppliers, then organizes and distributes them asneeded to a chain of retail stores for sale to local customers. The supermarket model focuses on the work that is involved in physically handling stock as it makes the journey from supplier to customer. Although it references the business entities that are involved, the model does not include the life cycle development of the physical housing structures of warehouses, stores and trucks, or the equipment they employ. The model identifies key parameters that are involved, but this generic version does not include specifics, such as the actual number of product types that a store carries number of stores and warehouses, their sizes, etc. These are determined when the model is applied to a specific supermarket business. What is a Business Enterprise? As shown in Figure 1, a typical business enterprise exists in a competitive marketplace, where it acquires resources from its supplier market, adds value by transforming them into products or services, and sells the results to its customer market

A Supermarket A Supermarket is a business enterprise that provides a service. It does not produce a physical product of its own in the usual sense. Instead, it adds value by acquiring existing products from remotely-located suppliers, assembling them in regional warehouses, distributing them to local stores, and finally selling the suppliers products to local customers. Figure 2 shows the general flow of stock from suppliers, through the supermarket business to local customers.

Figure 2: Supermarket Business

A supermarkets CUSTOMERS are primarily local residents and small businesses that periodically need to replenish their stock of household products. A supermarkets SUPPLIERS are primarily producers of household products that are established far from the locations of their final customers. In effect, the supermarket provides a virtual marketplace that brings remote suppliers together with local customers. Given this arrangement, the supermarket product is its SUPPLY CHAIN.

BUSINESS PROCESSES
Goods Received Payment done against Purchase Invoice

The Supermarket Structure The model portrays a supermarket as a functional system for doing business. As a system, the sequence of work performed in bringing products from remote suppliers to local customers involves certain discrete business entities. Each of these entities provides a critical link in the supermarket supply chain. Figure 3 identifies these

business entities as subsystem layers of the model, and defines the functional activities they perform.

Figure 3: Functional Activities This sequence of business entities provides an initial breakdown to define the structure of supermarket subsystem layers. To complete the overall structure of the supermarket model, the structure of subsystem layers is overlaid with a sequence of four core processes, which represent the life-cycle of a supermarket business. Figure 4 shows the four core processes in a time sequence, overlaid on the previouslydescribed subsystem layers.

CORE PROCESSES This sequence of business entities provides an initial breakdown to define the structure of supermarket subsystem layers. To complete the overall structure of the supermarket model, the structure of subsystem layers is overlaid with a sequence of four core processes, which represent the life-cycle of a supermarket business. Figure 4

shows the four core processes in a time sequence, overlaid on the previouslydescribed subsystem layers.

Figure 4: Core Processes The core process sequence begins by defining the business concept in terms of a detailed set of system requirements. This definition of requirements is then transformed into a tangible design, followed by constructing of the structures, procedures and contractual agreements that make up the business. The final core process shows how the resulting structures are employed to provision the actual supermarket service. To fulfill the original business concept, the four core processes are implemented over time. This four-stage development sequence comprises the lifecycle of the supermarkets business enterprise product. SUPPLY CHAIN A more detailed subsystem structure is required as a basis for defining the core process structures. The first task is to translate the Functional Activities to be Performed (from Figure 3) into the sequence of Basic Functional Steps that bring product stock from remote suppliers to local customers. As shown in Figure 5, these steps describe the essential SUPPLY CHAIN of the supermarket business.

Figure 5: Supply Chain SUB SYSTEMS As the blue Basic Functional Steps column shows, the physical properties of the supplier Stock remain unchanged throughout the sequence of sub process steps. The Stock goes through a sequence of actions that affect only its assigned properties, such as its location, accessibility, visibility, and purchase price.

The next task is to interpret the Basic Functional Steps as business subsystems, which portray the supply chain in terms of business structural requirements. In Figure 6, the terminology shifts from action steps to the state of supplier stock at each subsystem level. For each step in the supply chain, this indicates which business entity owns or is responsible for the stock, its physical location, and how it is being accessed

Figure 6: Subsystems Application of the Supermarket Model The supermarket model can be applied to all types and sizes of supermarket businesses. The model is intended to be used as a standardized template from which the unique characteristics of a specific supermarket business can be clearly identified.

The unique features of different types of supermarkets may vary, depending on size, location and stock assortment. Further, differences in core process structure may vary with a given supermarket, depending on product size, whether perishable, and supplier location. All of these differences can be viewed as variations on the common underlying theme presented in the supermarket model. This allows the standardized supermarket model to be employed as a baseline template for understanding and defining all supermarket situations. Example 1: The supply chain of a supermarket that acquires much of its stock from outside its own country might have additional steps in its supply chain for greater bulk shipping, customs receiving, and bulk warehouse storage. Example 2: The supply chain of a supermarket that acquires perishable stock to be delivered directly to its stores by local suppliers might eliminate the warehouse subsystem layers for that portion of its business. Supermarket Business Functions Each intersection of a subsystem with a core process forms an essential business function. These business functions define the business capabilities and actions that are required to satisfy the original business concept. Each business function embodies characteristics of both a core process and a subsystem. The core process dimension breaks down into a set of sub-processes that defines the sequence of work steps to be conducted in this portion of the supply chain. The subsystem dimension defines how resources and schedules are applied to accomplish that work. Business Function Decomposition The overall sequential flow of work performed by each core process determines the flow of work as it encounters its sequence of business functions. In that context, the work performed by a given business function is viewed as a sub-process of the overall core process, and details of the work within the business function appear as lowerlevel activities within that sub-process. The supermarket model provides a framework that clearly defines all business functions that are essential to the companys product life cycle and operation. Each of these well-defined business functions can then be decomposed into lower levels of detail using well-established process modelling methods and techniques. How Business Functions Relate to Organization Charts

The supermarket models subsystem/core process matrix can be applied to help realign a companys organization structure with its inherent functional structure. This framework provides a tool for reassigning management responsibilities toward the more clearly defined business functions. The business functions that are defined within the supermarket models structural framework can be mapped to those found on the companys organization chart, as indicated in Figure 13. A companys organization chart typically shows a hierarchy of lower level organization units whose responsibilities have evolved over time. The supermarket models matrix can bring to light any fragmentation of a function across multiple organization units, as well as ambiguous paths of authority over essential functional work.

Figure 7: Mapping Org Unit to Business Function

The supermarket models functional structure could be employed by ERP SOFTWARE PROVIDERS, whose current views are often based on business functions derived from an organization structure. Providing them with a more accurate view of the inherent structure of a SUPERMARKET BUSINESS TO MAKE THEIR SOLUTIONS MUCH MORE POWERFUL.

The supermarket model defines the inherent system structure that is common to every supermarket business. It provides an architectural framework of function and workflow that can be applied to better understand and improve a supermarkets business performance. By identifying the supermarkets complete core process and function structure, this model provides a highly efficient tool for more accurate business process identification, improvement and design.

Then different products and solutions are analyzed meticulously and the process for the chosen products goes through several steps before implementation. The basic functionality of the product and the technology on which the product is based are considered. The vendor who supplies the product/solution is minutely scanned and checked for efficiency and reliability of product delivery. The prices of different products and solutions are also examined in great detail and the best deal is obtained for the clients for implementation.

Benefits The client gets the best ERP product and solution which is ideal for their needs and at the same time cost effective during and after implementation. ENTERPRISE INFORMATION SYSTEMS. While a departmental information system is usually related to a functional area, other information systems serve several departments or the entire enterprise. These information systems together with the departmental applications comprise the enterprisewide information system (EIS). One of the most popular enterprise applications is enterprise resources planning (ERP), which enables companies to plan and manage the resources of an entire enterprise. ERP systems present a relatively new model of enterprisewide computing (see Chapter 8). A special enterprise system that crosses several departments is the transaction processing system (TPS). The TPS automates routine and repetitive tasks that are critical to the operation of the organization, such as preparing a payroll or billing customers.

Reverse Supply Chain Reverse supply chain refers to the movement of goods from customer to vendor. This is the reverse of the traditional supply chain movement of goods from vendor to customer. Reverse logistics is the process of planning, implementing and controlling the efficient and effective inbound flow and storage of secondary goods and related information for the purpose of recovering value or proper disposal. Typical examples of reverse supply chain include: Product returns and management of their deposition. Remanufacturing and refurbishing activities. Management and sale of surplus, as well as returned equipment and machines from the hardware leasing business. In these cases, the resource goes at least one step back in the supply chain. For instance, products move from customer to distributor or manufacturer
