Future-proof bottom-up portfolio management for the early detection of cost trends
Targeted portfolio management requires access to a consistent and transparent database. Apart from historic data retrieved from ERP systems, FACTON EPC provides a number of future-oriented key planning parameters. Thanks to the centralised management of all data and the multi-project reporting tools, cost trends as well as strengths and weaknesses can quickly be identified. FACTON EPC thus becomes an indispensable tool for targeted portfolio management.
Targeted portfolio management requires access to a consistent and transparent database. FACTON EPC complements the historic data from ERP systems with key planning parameters for efficient portfolio management. Each costing for a future project can be assigned specific attributes such as customer, product group, region, and corporate division. Key characteristics required for management control – such as turnover, profit, ROI, and NPV – are fully available for project cost calculations. The EPC can thus base its forward-looking portfolio management on these data.
Flexible consolidation of data for targeted portfolio management
The information compiled in FACTON EPC can be analysed using the software itself or another BI tool. Such evaluations provide valuable indicators regarding future profits. In FACTON EPC, the information can be grouped by product group, customer type, or production plant. It is up to the user to define the format in which these parameters are made available and displayed. They have, for example, the option to focus on specific regions or products.
As a result, cost trends can be identified quickly. Strengths and weaknesses become transparent and are backed up with figures. FACTON EPC thus becomes an indispensable tool for targeted portfolio management.
