Business intelligence from ERP and MES
We develop a smart live reporting for you.
Smart live reporting as a success factor
Competence and methodology
To successfully manage a company as a socio-technical system, the complexity has to be broken down into representative KPIs and presented transparently at different levels of aggregation. At the top level, for example, indicators for customer satisfaction, process efficiency, finances and personnel development are displayed. If the top level is set up as an interactive dashboard, you can control more detailed key figures of an area or create new live aggregations by setting filters. Individual effects can be understood and evaluated in this way. As a result, communication in the company is more focused.
The balanced scoreboards form the top level of a business intelligence solution and ensure no one-sided approach.
Creating transparency, releasing resources
Instead of internal departmental KPI knowledge, you can use smart reporting to create a transparent system and a uniform understanding of target agreements. In addition, your employees can focus on the essential processes and are not concerned with manual data preparation. A structured structure in the form of a KPI tree (KPI driver tree) ensures the traceability of causes, thus fueling communication in the company. Thanks to live analyses, the feedback loop is significantly faster than with weekly or even monthly reports, which gives middle management levels an effective tool for performance control.

Whether corporate or project success – we make performance measurable
ifp consulting has a wealth of experience with various ERP, MES & BDE systems thanks to data-based factory planning and the support of ERP implementations. Our consultant base of engineers and industrial engineers brings along a high understanding of processes for the direct areas and an understanding of costs. In practice, we have intelligently solved complex BI cases: For example, SAP S4 Hana was introduced for the pilot phase in a plant of a track construction machine manufacturer. The BI solution from ifp consulting accompanied the ramp-up in the test plant and combined information from the database of SAP S4 Hana and the database of an ERP in-house development of the company. In this way, goals from a strategy can be quantified and pursued – digitization is not an end in itself.
To overcome crises, key figures can make problems transparent and promote dialogue in meetings. In particular, between sales and production, there are often difficulties in coordinating capacity requirements and supply. With the quantification of the problem, it is possible to estimate in the short term whether, for example, temporary outsourcing makes sense or not. Standardized dashboards help to lead a fact-based discussion.
