Subject/Special Instructions: MPS/MRP PROJECT IMPLEMENTATION
Dear Mr. Andereatini,
Thank you for your fax dated Sept. 28, '99 and the detailed project schedule prepared by your EDP department .
We understand that you agreed with us about the approach and the engagement of 2 people in the project. And
the total project process is 82 working days. However, we still have some concerns which we would like to let you
1. Based on your schedule, the process of MRP implementation is from Sept. 14 to Dec. 24 and AA consultants
will involve for 32 days (16 * 2 people). From the schedule we only get the information that our consultants
will provide service at any time you require. Since the schedule does not provide the exact date for AA
consultants to provide service, it is very difficult for us to arrange the work at this time. We would like to
know the exact day in which you require our consultants to provide the service in order to facilitate the job
2. As we had specified, we proposed to use the standard BPCS implementation approach which has proved to
the success of the previous project on Finance and Distribution modules. From your aproach and schedule, we
still do not understand fully the new approach and it may affect the implementation process. For example,
without proper involvement and the front end in the prototyping, it is very difficult for A.A. to easily estimate
the time in advance and to "check and solve problem".
3. If you still insist on this approach, let’s try our best effort to support you. Given that we are not monitoring the
implemetation progress in the coming phase and Mr. Chenxi requested that we are on a call basis to provide
the support service. In this regard it is difficult for our staff to stand-by and wait for your call. We would like
to emphasize beforehand that MTS shall be fully responsible for the project, while A.A. will adopt "loan staff"
method, i.e. our consultant will carry out tasks as instructed by your project leader.
In order to speed up the project, we will further discuss with your project team on the arrangement and the detail schedule in Wuxi next Monday.
