Are You Ready for 2009? Systems for Costs Control and Optimization03. 12. 2008
The upcoming worsening economic situation forces companies to think about optimizing their costs. Definity Systems offers you a solution.
What are the costs of our orders at any moment? How can we easily measure the cost rate of our projects? Which worker will pay off for me and which one not? Are there any reserves that I am not aware of?
The upcoming worsening economic situation forces companies to think about optimizing their costs. However, effective optimization requires accurate and timely data. The only data available in most companies, though, are their accounting outputs supplemented with data scattered about Excel tables. Companies thus encounter a problem of such information being entirely insufficient for good optimization. There are usually the following basic problems:
- The accounting data are already out of date at the moment of processing.
- The data are often very rough and their structure does not correspond to the processes that are to be optimized.
- Subsequent data processing is very complicated and costly.
An ideal solution is to obtain data immediately when they originate, not after they are processed, and in a corresponding structure. The problem can often be solved by a simple software application which locates data during the process and evaluates them immediately.

The Produktivita (Productivity) system was designed for the monitoring of production costs in the TRW Automotive Company’s production plant. Its main advantage consists in immediate monitoring of production costs at different break down levels – plant, central, production line, individual product, worker. Based on these data, the production process and the appointing of individual workers including background documents for their motivation bonuses can be optimized more accurately and more quickly. More information about the Produktivita system can be found on Productivity page.
The BMS system (Business Management Škoda) was implemented for InterScreen, a consulting company providing among others, consulting services for the Škoda Auto sales network. The principle of the system consists in collecting economic data from individual dealers, their evaluation and comparison to average market indicators. Dealers thus obtain a valuable representation of their situation as compared to the market, which can then be used for their strategic decisions on costs optimization. More information about BMS can be found on BMS page.
The KMiDOC software tool was custom-made for KONICA MINOLTA. The system supports one of the most important services that KONICA MINOLTA offers to its customers. It helps the company’s consultants analyze and suggest printing costs optimizations for their customers. More information about KMiDOC can be found on KMiDOC page.
