Hershey s Halloween Nightmare All Too Common for Supply Chain Implementations
On October 25, Hershey Foods Corporation announced a sharp decline in revenue and earnings for its third fiscal quarter ended September 30, 1999. Consolidated net sales were $1.07 billion compared with $1.22 billion for the third quarter of 1998. Net income for the third quarter was $87.6 million, or $ 0.62 per share-diluted, compared with $107.5 million, or $ 0.74 per share-diluted, for the third quarter of 1998. Hershey Chairman and CEO Kenneth L. Wolfe blamed the poor showing on problems encountered since July, when the company switched over to new systems for customer service, warehousing and order fulfillment.

Business Software Firms Sued Over Implementation - Lawsuits Bring ERP Problems to Light
Although glitch-plagued software implementations are nothing new, the growing number of brand-name firms reporting big troubles with their multimillion-dollar projects is starting to look like a Who's Who of the Fortune 500.

HERSHEY FUNDRAISERS: This grim list includes Hershey Foods, Whirlpool, Allied Waste Industries, and the maker of Gore-Tex, W.L. Gore & Associates. Other stories of troubled enterprise resource planning (ERP) software implementations are also leaking out from additional companies, colleges and universities across the country.

long-term cost? Just ask Hershey [PDF download].  Deadly Software Selection Sin #2: Failing to get user buy-in. The Harold Camping sin: As anyone who watches television knows, “enough belief in something will actually cause things to happen” (source: Clap Your Hands If You Believe ). Sadly for Camping, however, his brand of theology failed to garner the support of a number of believers, including the Protestant and Catholic churches, thus undermining Camping’s inevitable fall-back position.

JDA FOCUS 2010 Impressions – Part 1 » The TEC Blog
the first was at Hershey, who blamed i2 for badly planning its Halloween 1999 season. At least there i2 could share the blame and point fingers at SAP and the former Siebel , due to the mishmash software implementation . Soon after came  the problematic project at Nike in 2001. Nike filed a lawsuit, which, unless I am mistaken, was settled . At one point, as rumor would have it, K-Mart/Sears did file a lawsuit, but then dropped it (perhaps taking pity on i2’s own sad state of affairs at the time).

Information technology infrastructure takes a back seat to applications investments for lack of a cost justification method. However, the infrastructure systems are breaking down in public; bringing significant attention to an issue that has been set aside far too long.

HERSHEY FUNDRAISERS: that caused revenue shortfalls. Hershey experienced lost sales orders and delayed shipments as did Whirlpool and Volkswagen in a rush to bring their Enterprise Resource Planning Systems on line. ASD Catalogs and Knight Ridder Shared Services had to deal with the proliferation of desktop computer models, configurations, and vendors before they could address business improvement initiatives.
