After making significant investments in SAP® for product costing, many companies still have a need for flexible analytical tools to build budgets, calculate forecasts and compare scenarios. A versatile business modeling platform that mirrors or expands SAP product costing, ImpactECS makes use of core ERP and business warehouse data like BOMs, routings and activity rates, companies can establish an integrated scenario analysis platform that syncs with SAP product costing requirements.
Calculate the effects of raw material and commodity prices on each SKU manufactured
Flex foreign exchange currency rates to understand the real effect on costs
Shift volumes and mixes of manufactured products to identify optimal production levels
Leverage in-memory database performance to calculate costs and run simulations at speeds much faster than traditional relational databases.
The SAP Data Integration Module is an SAPAdapter built into ImpactECS based on the Microsoft technology stack and the SAP .net Connector that extracts data from SAP for use in ImpactECS models.
For manufacturing companies like yours, the ability to calculate and analyze the cost of the products you build and sell is the key to understanding your company’s profitability. If your company has complicated manufacturing processes, large product catalogs, or multiple production facilities, the ability to calculate costs can be a challenging proposition.
