Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) and Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES) form the central backbone of your business, thus ensuring sustainable success. With our team of experts in business organization, production technology, production planning and control and information technology, and combined with our years of experience in the piece goods industry (for example, in machine and plant construction), we can support you in the selection of a new ERP or ME system. As independent experts, we place value on a requirement-, time- and cost-oriented system selection tailored to your needs.

Service modules

The service modules listed below represent self-contained work content in our ERP / MES area of expertise. We have sophisticated and proven methods and tools for efficient processing.

The selection of a perfect system requires an understanding of your processes. For this reason, we take your processes, analyze them and perform any necessary optimization.

From these processes, we derive the future system together with your requirements and then prioritize and document these in the specifications. We rely on a standardized catalog of requirements for this purpose.

We investigate the specific system functionalities for over 600 system providers in Germany, compare these with the requirement profile and make a preliminary selection (approx. 6-8 systems).

A detailed comparison of the required and available system functionalities and, based on this, a detailed selection (approx. 2-3 systems) take place for the system provider candidates.

Within the framework of supplier presentations, the systems are systematically assessed and the ease of use is evaluated with respect to critical processes. We also conduct a comprehensive cost determination process.

We can assist you in the negotiations, for example, by comparing the specifications with the requirements specification drawn up by the system provider. We support you in the introduction of the system through professional project management.
