The Challenge
The automotive company, based in China, was struggling with the efficient scheduling and management of a large number of jobs within multiple software environments. The company had numerous jobs with complex dependencies running on multiple platforms. The limited capabilities of the company’s proprietary scheduling software and the largely manual processes in place for setting job schedules, monitoring job statuses and importing job attributes and dependencies within the company’s SAP ERP, database, Java and IBM InfoSphere® DataStage® software environments posed a significant challenge. The company was in dire need of an automated workload-management solution to increase operating efficiency.
About The Customer
The customer is a major automotive company based in China. The company manufactures and sells multiple brands of automobiles in mainland China. The company had a large and complex workload with numerous jobs running on multiple platforms. The company was using proprietary scheduling software and largely manual processes for setting job schedules, monitoring job statuses and importing job attributes and dependencies within its SAP ERP, database, Java and IBM InfoSphere® DataStage® software environments.
The Solution
The company engaged IBM Software Services for Tivoli to implement a suite of IBM Tivoli workload automation software. Initially, the company replaced its proprietary job scheduler software with IBM Tivoli Workload Scheduler software to schedule jobs across all platforms in the enterprise. Following this, it deployed IBM Tivoli Dynamic Workload Broker software to schedule dynamic jobs and IBM Tivoli Workload Scheduler for Applications software to schedule SAP ERP application jobs in the core production environment. This suite of IBM Tivoli software provided a centralized view of workload schedules and dependencies, enabling the company to run jobs in an orderly and timely way without conflict, while balancing resources and extending sophisticated workload automation to business applications.
Operational Impact
  • With the implementation of the IBM Tivoli software suite, the company now has a fully automated and simplified workload-management solution for its core production systems. The ability to centrally monitor and control workload scheduling has allowed the company to run jobs in an orderly and timely way without conflict. This has significantly improved the company's workload-management processes, business operating stability and production efficiency. The company can now balance resources and extend sophisticated workload automation to business applications, thereby enhancing its overall operational efficiency.
Quantitative Benefit
  • Reduced the total time required to orchestrate jobs by one hour per operator per day.
