Installing the object-centric Inventory Management Control Center

The object-centric version of the Inventory Management Control Center app works with objects and events created for object-centric process mining. Before you set up the object-centric version of the Inventory Management Control Center app, you’ll need to enable and configure the Inventory Management process, load the object-centric data model with your data, and validate the perspective_celonis_InventoryManagement perspective. You’ll also need to set up the custom object types and custom Inventory Management perspective that the app requires. See Prerequisites for the object-centric Inventory Management Control Center.

You can download the Inventory Management Control Center app from the Celonis Marketplace. When you link the Inventory Management Control Center app to the perspective you’re using, it uses the objects and events that you’ve already built from your source system data and stored in the OCPM Data Pool. There's no Process Connector to download for the object-centric app.

Here’s how to install the Inventory Management Control Center app:

  1. Open the Celonis Marketplace from the Celonis navigation menu, and search for all or part of the app’s name. You’ll probably see an original case-centric version of the app as well as the object-centric version. Only the object-centric version is suitable for object-centric process mining.

  2. Select the Inventory Management Control Center (object-centric) app to see its information page.

  3. Select Request Access to request the app. Your request is forwarded to the product team. They’ll need 1-2 business days to validate your request with your account team, then they’ll give you access to the app and provide you with the setup guide for the custom object types and custom perspective.

  4. In Celonis, choose a Studio space to install the app in. You can use an existing Studio space or create a new one. (You can move the app after installation.) Click Confirm to proceed with the installation.

  5. Click Assign perspective when the app prompts you. This takes you to the package settings.

  6. Select the Assign Data Model button, then search or browse for the custom Inventory Management perspective that you set up for the Inventory Management Control Center app. Click to select it and click Save to set the Data Model variable.

  7. Open the Control Center, Plant Profile, Material Group Profile, and Material Profile views and validate that your data is shown. It might take a few seconds before all the tables are created. If you see “Table could not be found” errors, wait for a short time and then reload the page to see if they disappear. If they remain, you’ll need to fix this during app setup.

  8. Set up the variables for the app. The Inventory Management Control Center doesn’t have a view for its settings - you use the variables in the app’s Knowledge Model. Configuring settings for the object-centric Inventory Management Control Center tells you how.

  9. Check that the business logic used by the KPIs (key performance indicators) in the app’s Knowledge Model is correct for your business. Validating KPIs for the object-centric Inventory Management Control Center app explains how, and lists the most important KPIs to check. You’ll need Analyst permissions for Studio and the Knowledge Model to modify any of the KPIs and their calculations.

  10. Configure the tasks and actions for the app. Configuring tasks and actions for the object-centric Inventory Management Control Center app tells you how, and explains what needs configuring.

  11. If you want to customize the app’s views to change their look, fit your business process, or include custom attributes or relationships that you added to the Celonis object types used in the custom Inventory Management perspective, edit them in Studio. Editing views for the object-centric Inventory Management Control Center app explains the process. You’ll need Analyst permissions for Studio and the views to modify them.

  12. When you’re happy with your results, publish a version of the app. There's a Publish Package button at the top of all the screens in your Studio space.

When you publish the Inventory Management Control Center app for the first time, it creates the profile views for:

  • Inefficiencies

  • Plant

  • Material Group

  • Material Plant (SKU)
