Project examples

Challenge:  Development of a premium system for employees of the production. The efficiency of the department is supposed to be illustrated in one characteristic number. The improvement of efficiency and the resulting time saving will be evaluated and rewarded after considering other factors. The evaluation should be comprehensible for every employee.

Solution: Calculation of an employee-OEE as a ratio of target time of the production (the base output volume times expected time) and the presence of all employees within the department. Determination of the saved time compared to the efficiency goal. Evaluation of the savings will be conducted with an average wage considering further factors. Afterwards, pro-rata distribution of the savings and expression of the calculation for the payroll accounting.

Challenge: Simulation and depiction of a profit and loss statement for divisions of the company considering the entries of the financial accounting as well as the results of the cost-center accounting (profit-center point of view).

Solution: Based on a control table, all cost-centers of the cost accounting will be matched with the equivalent results areas. Nominal accounts of the financial accounting such as turnover and material which can be matched immediately, will be allocated towards their parts list via article allocations. Indirect nominal accounts such as discounts and bonuses will be allocated accordingly based on the turnover per customer and article. A total transition of the financial- and cost-center accounting’s entries for illustration of the division calculation overview is controlling the relevance of the remaining positions.

 

Projektbeispiele: Bereichsergebnisrechnung

Challenge: Goal was to analyze the demand behavior of unique customers. This goal was provoked by the assumption delivery calls would fluctuate and those fluctuations were supposed to be highlighted by facts. The ultimate goal was to reveal systematic adjustments executed by the customers and to thereby support the planning security of operative processes.

Solution: The delivery calls are kept history of, so that all demand levels are recognized and utilized as a basis for statistic evaluations. In order to identify conspicuous customer/article combinations, the previous day is used for comparison and a transformation is determined. Moreover, a comparison with the LAB-status is conducted. A weighing of both factors induces a list filter. The report will be checked and edited daily in correspondence with sales, purchases, and production.

 

Projektbeispiele: Historisierung von Lieferabrufen

Challenge: Concerning the analysis of data derived from sales, purchase, and production, individual articles will have to be checked regularly in case they are conspicuous. This analysis usually requires manual and time-consuming gatherings of diversified information from the ERP-System.

Solution: We drafted a report representing all relevant information of an article on few report pages. Sales volume, turnover, prices and further operating figures are depicted; as well as the parts list and working plans/-processes containing information about expected time, throughput time. Information about purchases, average prices, following goods receipt, following order as well as inventory information.
For users, all information is now available integrated and for different questions.


Projektbeispiele: Artikeldetailbericht
Challenge: An evaluation of price changes occurs on a regular basis. Therefore, different prices (actual price, actual price previous year, ordering price, planned price) are consulted. Treatment of the different areas requires considerable personnel expenses and is subject to mistakes.

Solution: Evaluation of different quality structures with variable price versions. Different deviations can be displayed and assessed between product group level and individual level.

Solution: Furthermore, a referral to the article for sale occurs in order to reveal the impact of the changes in material price on the margin.

 

Projektbeispiele: Materialpreisveränderungen

Challenge: The logistic department is meant to be notified about material shortages early in case the customer demand alternates. The replication is supposed to happen daily, and its role is to check the inventory situation. Intermediate inputs such as intermediate goods from one’s own production should be taken into account.

Solution: For all upcoming customer requirements the material requirements are calculated with regard to every production level and are then contrasted to material inventory. Hence, it would be considered if the demand for one article had already been covered by an intermediate good (material consumption by a follow-up process) and therefore is structurally available (structure portfolio). The logistic department is able to choose if the planned sales quantity should be considered. After considering safety stock and throughput time an according reach is pictured.
