TNPL - Geared for Tomorrow
 
Information Technology
TNPL believes and invests in state of the art technology. After implementation of the Mill Expansion Plan (MEP), the annual production capacity of the mill has nearly doubled to 4,00,000 MTs. The MEP project has resulted in increased operational activities relating to sales, marketing of new products and Supply Chain functions, etc. An agile Information Technology (IT) system is the back bone for a growing organization and TNPL has a good track record of implementing enterprise-wise IT systems in the past. However to meet the growing challenges and to remain state-of-the-art in technology, TNPL explored the feasibility to implement an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) solution for its core functions to enable TNPL to meet the fast increasing business/market demands while maintaining and enhancing the quality of service and achieving operational efficiencies.

After detailed study, TNPL launched the ERP Project - “Tamil OLAi” with Oracle E-Business Suite (EBS) R12. Tamil OLAi has been completed and gone live from April 2012. The major modules covered are Financial Management, Human Resource Management, Marketing & Sales Management , Materials Management, Production Management, Quality Control, Project Management and Plant Maintenance.

The infrastructure in the factory consists of Oracle Sun Servers (Rack & Blade) and Storage Area Network (SAN) providing for centralized data storage based on fibre channel with an automated tape backup system. These servers cater to the need of entire Oracle E-Business Suite with Production & Quality Assurance architecture.

The computers in the factory are connected by Campus Area Network (CAN). The computers in the corporate office in Chennai are connected by Local Area Network (LAN). The CAN and LAN are connected through a Wide Area Network (WAN). Similarly, the computers in the factory, corporate office and other marketing offices across the country are connected through a Virtual Private Network (VPN).
