Restoration of the control capability in plant controlling
There was great uncertainty within the company as to whether the various IT systems and modules still accurately depict the business processes and provide reliable figures for controlling the company – especially with regard to massive, unexplained deviations between planned and actual figures. This was mainly due to parallel operational process changes, IT system launches, customer portfolio changes and staff fluctuation. It was therefore necessary to check the figures in the system landscape, make appropriate adjustments in the systems or allocations and restore confidence in the reported figures from controlling within management.
Solution & result
Hypothesis-driven analysis of all possible influencing factors and potential sources of error. Workshops, interviews, analyses and process recordings for the identification of deficits in the settings or the application of IT systems, clarification of business management issues and development of operational improvement measures.
Achievement of transparency about the current business situation and clarity about the reasons for the budget/actual deviation. Comprehensive proposals to facilitate future business management analyses and reduce identified sources of error both in dealing with the figures and in setting up and using the IT systems.
»Thanks to the analyses and adjustments made by Valetis, I have regained my confidence in our figures and systems.«
