ifp consulting has a wealth of experience with a wide range of ERP, MES & BDE systems through data-based factory planning and ERP implementation support. Our consulting team of engineers and industrial engineers brings a high level of process understanding to the direct areas in addition to 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 railroad construction machinery manufacturer. The BI solution from ifp consulting accompanied the ramp up in the test plant and combined information from the SAP S4 Hana database and the database of an ERP in-house development of the company. In this way, goals from a strategy can be quantified and tracked – digitization is not an end in itself.
To overcome crises, key figures can make problems transparent and promote dialog in meetings. In particular, there are often difficulties between sales and production in matching capacity requirements and available capacity. With the quantification of the problem, it is thus also possible to assess in the short term whether, for example, the temporary outsourcing makes sense or not. Standardized dashboards help to lead a fact-based discussion here.
