Machine and Plant Construction
Master complexity in machine and plant construction at a profit
The planning, production and maintenance of construction plants is a highly complex matter. Each construction project has its very own contractual features and specifications. Beginning with the tendering phase and on to inspection approval, straight through to plant maintenance later on, there are a large number of processes to coordinate: calculate and control costs, integrate vendors, suppliers and subcontractors into the processes, plan demands for materials and staff capacities, procure materials and services, monitor delivery deadlines and on and on… What you also need are analyses and assessments during each phase in order to have an overview of your project’s status. A capable ERP solution casts light on the darkness and helps you to achieve your tasks while meeting deadlines and keeping to your budget.

IT support during project business
For more than 15 years now QSC AG has supported machine and plant construction outfits in the course of daily project business. We deploy SAP components to your benefit that optimize your processes and lower your costs at the same time:
You organize individual construction phases using project structures and network plans for task planning, cost estimating and date scheduling in terms of demands for materials and staff capacities.
You make use of electronic marketplaces for material procurement in order to determine the best price-to-performance ratio via bid comparisons and auctions.
You monitor delivery of materials in alignment with dates: from the time the goods leave the vendor or supplier, all the way to the construction site.
You procure services with the help of catalogs of services and sample specifications, control the logging of services, inspection approval and release for the services, and monitor all budget details.
You register, calculate, review, enter and settle payment schedules and invoices on account.
Within finances and accounting you draw on invoicing plans and partial invoices for the individual construction phases that are typical for the field involved. In light of the major complexity of the accounting transactions here, the depiction of requests for down payments, of payments on account, ancillary costs and collateral securities reduces the susceptibility to error.
You directly access technical documentation, inspection certificates and other documents via interfaces to CAD, CAM or CAE systems.
