Design and implementation of development programs such as ICT MASTER PLAN and ERP Organizational:

Today, information is recognized as a strategic resource, such as other organizational resources such as manpower, equipment, technology, and financial resources, and is an important factor in organizational decision making. One of the most common problems in developing and developing companies in the country is the lack of attention to the organization of data simultaneously with the development of physical and hardware and the development of organizational and administrative systems. In practice, as the systems of administrative and spread more data in the organization of production that define and establish the appropriate organization for their hard work and organizations because of difficulties in the making, of great importance to it do not. On the other hand, ICT has significantly influenced the way in which information is organized and accessed. Although the technology has many advantages, such as the possibility of various processes, the speed and accuracy of access and information exchange, but due to the increasing rate of innovation and the provision of new methods and equipment, has led to short-term and cross-sectional decisions, costs In the strategic planning process, three questions must be answered:
  • What is the current status of providing IT-related services?
  • How should these services be?
  • What is the best way to move to the optimal position?
By providing mission, vision, goals and strategies for developing information technology, this program will provide the convergence of related activities in the organization and will be provided with the views and views of the managers of the organization.
 The IT elements that are the subject of strategic IT planning are:
  • Infrastructure includes hardware, communication and Internet, and basic software.
  • Information systems include applications and related information.
  • Manpower includes things such as training and skills.
  • IT management includes organizing, strategies and procedures.
Since the strategic information technology program needs to be aligned with the company's strategic business plan, the role of information technology should be determined, the development and approval of a business strategy, mission, vision, core values ​​and long-term goals of the company it seems necessary.

Comprehensive ICT Plan

The purpose of the ICT-MP is to provide a roadmap for the company's future development in the field of ICT. This program will consist of a portfolio of various projects, projects / activities that will be developed in related areas and from different perspectives. In the formulation of a comprehensive plan - as its name suggests-is not emphasis on detail, but with a broad view from top to bottom, the organization's needs for ICT for a given time period will be identified and detailed planning will be provided to achieve this.
As a rule, ICT-MPs are routinely reviewed and reprogrammed in deployed organizations every three to five years. However, if there are significant changes at the organization level, or business conditions, or specific conditions, such as startup conditions, it can be reviewed and changed over time.
Once the ICT-MP has been prepared and approved by the decision makers, the program will be used as the basis for the information technology executive activities and will be provided to the contractor as the main component of the tender documents. As mentioned, the details of these activities are not within the scope of the ICT-MP, and in this section it will be limited to providing the Specification Block Diagram and Data Sheet.
Regarding the above and the current conditions of the Opal Corp Sangan Company, there were necessary studies regarding the company's existing circumstances, which indicates the organization's serious needs in the field of hardware and software. Accordingly, the first edition of the ICT-MP will focus on two parts of Telecom Systems and the Application System.

Telecom systems
These systems provide a set of IT tools and infrastructures that are needed to conduct and facilitate company activities. The following illustrates the exponential structure of the ICT-MP and provides a brief explanation for each of the systems:
It should be noted that each of the above systems is an independent project, and the Development and Technology Unit, along with the Technical Committee of the Comprehensive ICT Program, should stand before the implementation and implementation of these sections separately for each of the following Specification, Block Diagram And prepare a separate Data Sheet and execute tasks in accordance with these guidelines to make purchases and execution of projects.

Functional systems
These systems include all the software applications required by the company in different areas. The use of these systems requires the following steps:
  • Formation of organization vision
  • Evaluation of organization information systems
  • Assessing the organization's current structure and processes
  • Analyzing the Impact of Information Technology on Organizations
  • Architectural organization processes
  • Compilation of Information Systems Architecture
  • Compilation of technological architecture
  • Developing a Planner
  • Request for proposal
  • Tender and contractor selection
  • Installation, installation and deployment of systems

Water supply plans with regard to available facilities and resources

Power supply
Power supply for a specific and large load (at a rate of several hundred megawatts) is generally possible in two ways: the construction of a power plant or the provision of electricity through a global network. Obviously, in cases where technical specifications and load studies on a nationwide network are available on demand, this option is more economical than the construction of a dedicated power plant.
Therefore, due to the capacity of the national network and the power required by the Sangan site, the construction of the power plant is discontinued and the option of using the national network is suitable for electricity supply.

Water supply
The study on water supply to the Industrial and Mineral Market of the Parsian Sangan Opal shows that providing a significant amount of predicted water to the horizon of the project is not possible due to the existing conditions in the area and due to the high risk in the region, Sustainability is also not justified. Therefore, it is appropriate to provide water from water resources and different designs to the horizon of the plan. These resources include:
  • Purchase and transfer of water from dams and reservoirs of surface water available, including Dam and Hail Dam
  • Purchasing a number of wells and changing the use of these wells for industrial use
  • Construction of reservoirs and development of exploitation of surface water resources
  • Developing the exploitation of salt and saline waters in eastern and southeastern parts of the study area and desalting water at the standard level required for industrial use
  • New well drilling in parts of the Alluvial Aquifer Zone and transferring it for industrial use
