GrafTech is a leading manufacturer of high-quality graphite electrode products essential to the production of electric arc furnace steel. With over 135 years of experience in the research and development of graphite- and carbon-based solutions, GrafTech provides highly engineered products, services and solutions for their steelmaking customers around the world.
GrafTech was on an older, highly customized version of JD Edwards (Xe). The purpose of this project was to get to a stable, supported release of JD Edwards.
GrafTech wanted a like-for-like approach to their upgrade but also wanted to look for opportunities to reduce the number of modifications within the system (over 3,000), as well as support their internal IT Strategic Road Map.
Terillium upgraded GrafTech’s JD Edwards system to a stable platform and release. The upgrade included:
- 73 Interfaces/Integration Points into/out of JDE
- Tools Release Update – 188.8.131.52
- Retrofitting Custom Objects/Applications/Reports – 1,500+
- Elimination of 1,400 Obsolete/Custom Objects
The JDE upgrade was completed on time and under budget with no unscheduled down time.
