Learn everything about implementing Oracle HCM here!

Let’s consider a real world organization where Oracle HCM is being implemented to handle all HR operations.

Now lot of things happen when an organization decides to implement any ERP solutions. It starts with a RFP to choose a system integrator (SI vendor). Once the vendor is identified, the vendor deploys a project team which will take care of the implementation.

The project team typically consists of a Project Manager, Functional Consultants, Technical Consultants, Testing team, Administrators etc.

The implementation project is divided into phases. Typically phases include Initiation, Requirements Gathering, Analysis/Design and Mapping, Configuration, CRPs, Testing, Data Migration, UAT and Go-Live.

A project plan is created and proper resource loading is done to execute the project.

Documentation are produced as outcomes of each phase of the implementation. For example: AIMS documents; BR30, BR100, MD50, MD70 are delivered

The sections below elaborates all aspects of implementing various modules of Oracle HCM taking a real world organization into consideration.

Let us first try to understand various HR Business Processes: Refer to the Oracle myoracle support note mentioned below. It gives you all the standard business process models in Oracle Fusion Applications

Oracle Fusion Business Process Models: Homepage (Doc ID 1542019.1)

The following are the 3 main business process areas of Oracle Fusion HCM

Workforce Deployment – Core HR, Payroll, Time and Labor, Absense

Workforce Development – Talent, Performance

Compensation Management – Compensation, benefits

Business Processes are categorised as L1, L2, L3 and L4 as shown below

L1: 21 Workforce Deployment
– L2: 2101 Plan Workforce Deployment
—L3: 210103 Manage Workforce Structures (Fusion 1.0)
—L3: 210103 Manage Workforce Structures (Fusion
– L2: 2103 Manage Workforce Lifecycle
—L3: 210302 Add Person (Fusion 1.0)
