Nowadays, customers demand that manufacturers of commercial vehicles, custom vehicle bodies, and mobile homes produce a large number of variants, at low costs, and to strict deadlines. The ability to compete requires extremely efficient management and production processes. The solution: An ERP system that enables single-item and variant manufacturing in series production.
What sounded impossible to reconcile just a few years ago is now possible, thanks to powerful variant management, simple self-customizable processes, and optimized production planning. We will gladly help you get where you want to go—automotive manufacturing is our passion.
As manufacturing processes become increasingly complex, traditional tools or manual planning methods can quickly reach their limits. APS software goes one step further and makes your production intelligent. This means that adaptive solutions—ones that can factor in all planning levels, automatically react to faults and optimize your production using intelligent control components—are the ideal way to expand your ERP system.
PSI offers cost accounting specifically designed for manufacturing companies, enabling you to accurately categorize operational developments in terms of direct cost-oriented cost unit accounting. In this way, it is possible to precisely plan for costs and revenues. The Cost Accounting ERP module provides an overview of planned, target and actual costs at all times.
Plants can be combined into one central area for financial accounting/cost accounting. Alongside cross-plant logistical and commercial processes, establishing centralized services for sales and procurement serves as an additional means of ensuring that commercial requirements are handled securely and effectively.
Service Management, integrated into the ERP system, is the ideal software for optimizing your in-house processes and using maintenance to generate business revenue. Predictive Maintenance can create additional benefits for companies.
Companies need to optimize their operations using effective variant management if they want to avoid chaotic internal growth, inefficient order processing and rising costs. The solution: Product configuration using PSIpenta Variant Management, directly in the ERP system. This gives the user an effective means of planning and controlling customized product designs.

Do you want to further optimize your logistics?
Alongside their actual production processes, manufacturing companies can become even more efficient by optimizing their logistics. This requires precise logistics for materials, starting with optimized delivery planning—taking into account transport volumes—through flexible approaches in bottleneck situations and the requisite access to new incoming goods.
Qualicision® technology optimizes production processes in which order sequencing is organized in line with variable target criteria by optimizing each of these criteria in turn. This sequencing is also automatically adapted to changes in the logistics conditions or to the optimization target criteria.
Want to improve your service management processes?
PSIcommand ensures optimal information flow in end-to-end processes. As part of our ERP solution, you benefit from functions that are free of system failures, including: materials planning; flexible allocation of materials to specific applications; direct material postings for replacing and expanding equipment; organization of mobile warehouses; and posting of excess consumption.
