About the Process Manufacturing SIG

The Process Manufacturing SIG is open to all users of the Oracle Process Manufacturing  software.  This special interest group is composed entirely of volunteers, charges no membership dues and is constantly seeking new members.  Our application is a broad one and so we are divided into subcommittees to narrow our focus.  These subcommittees are mini-SIGs within our Process Manufacturing  SIG.  As you travel through our site, you will find many links to the Chair persons for these mini SIGs.  Please feel free to get involved with as many of these mini-SIGs as you like.
