ABSTRACT:
Twice a year, the company undergoes a seasonal product creation process that requires a massive data transfer from the company's product development system into SAP. While a single team member oversaw this material creation process, an additional 10 production planners were required to leave their day-to-day jobs to help create materials over a grueling two-week period. This seasonal ritual was a major bottleneck in terms of productivity, so they started looking at ways that they could automate MM01 transactions.

Steve Walker, Manager of Supply Chain Systems and his team first saw a Winshuttle demo when attending an Apparel and Footwear Solution (AFS) user group in 2007. The Winshuttle support team gave them an orientation prior to purchasing the product, helping them write scripts for the material creation transaction. When they moved forward with the purchase, they were all set to run transactions from day one.

Under Armour immediately applied transactionSHUTTLE to the seasonal product creation process. The IT department loaded the script, trained the business side how to run it, and left the rest in end-users' hands. Since then, the IT department has used Winshuttle for several implementations, including new tax software that requires the transfer of hundreds of thousands of master records.
