Long-lasting Performance Improvement with Key Figure Analysis

Vienna/Reutlingen, October 17, 2012 – Manz, a leading high-tech mechanical engineering company, is optimizing its processes in strategic sourcing in order to recognize the risks and potential associated with each supplier early on so that the sourcing department can react to them in time. POOL4TOOL’s customized eSolutions localize and analyze key figures that are relevant to the decision making process, and displays these figures in a comprehensive and transparent way. Manz and POOL4TOOL will present the joint optimization project at the BME Sourcing and Logistics’ Symposium in Berlin from the 7th to 9th of November, 2012.

Manz is a world leader in high-tech mechanical engineering with various technology and business fields. Variations in the demand and the dynamic market environment rarely allow for reliable analysis. “In the solar sector, we are confronted with extreme variations in demand. The rapid switch between high demand and weak order situation make our forecasts more difficult,” Michael Deschenhalm, the department head for central purchasing at Manz, explains. In order to recognize and risks and potentials based on key figures, and to simultaneously run recurring sourcing processes automatically, Manz chose to implement an eSolution. This will allow sourcing actions to be more targeted and to run more efficiently.

Customized Analysis Tools Instead of Rigid Standard Reports

The challenge with key figure analysis is localizing data that is relevant to the decision making process. Manual combination of different ERP systems is time consuming and error-prone. This is why Manz chose POOL4TOOL’s Analytics application, which takes all of the important key figures from sourcing, development, logistics, and quality control, and combines them to create a cost and cause report. Instead of using inflexible, pre-programmed standard reports, Manz chose a customizable option. The individual reporting tool ensures that only information relevant to their company, such as volume data, delivery and payment requirements, and corporation affiliation will be displayed transparently by the tool. All of the corporation’s top sourcing executives will have access to the system, which will make internal decisions easier, and will lead to long-lasting performance improvements.

Joint Presentation at BME Symposium

Manz and POOL4TOOL will be presenting their joint optimization project at the 47th BME purchasing and logistics symposium in Berlin from the 7th to the 9th of November, 2012. The presentation, titled “KPI’s ad Process Optimization – Long-lasting Improvements to a Gloal Purchasing Organization’s Performance”, will be given by Michael Deschenhalm, the central purchasing executive at Manz, and Thomas Dieringer, the CEO of POOL4TOOL.
