Oracle A.I.M. Methodology – template list

Oracle A.I.M. Methodology encompasses a project management methodology with documentation templates that support the life cycle of an implementation. The life cycle methodology and documentation templates allows A.I.M. to be a very useful tool for managing implementation projects successfully. This is a depiction of the A.I.M. methodology life cycle:

Application Implementation Method is a proven approach for all the activities required to implement oracle applications. there are eleven processes of implementation.

1. Business Process Architecture [BP] – This phase outlines:

  • Existing Business Practices
  • Catalog change practices
  • Leading practices
  • Future practices

BP.010 Define Business and Process StrategyBP.020 Catalog and Analyze Potential Changes
