Sizing your ERP Production Environment
One question that comes often, how to size your production, this is not science it is an art, yes guidelines exists but no two client environments are the same.
I like to begin by using the following table to define the online user workload by EBS application family. This will provide a high level sizing based on blended metrics for multiple application modules within the application family. Also most vendors have detailed questionaires to help with the sizing exercise.
|Numbers of Users by EBS Application Family||# Sessions per User(default = 1)|
|* # Named
|# Concurrently Active Users|
|* Total||* Light||* Std.||* Heavy|
|Supply Chain Planning||6||6||5|
|Logistics & Transportation Management|
|Sales and Marketing|
