Being in a highly regulated and complex industry, our client must follow extensive procedures and manuals, which makes both inspection and repair of incoming components time consuming, makes resource allocation difficult and predictions impossible. The manual quote creation process resulted in bottlenecks in 30% of the incoming cases. Furthermore SAP did not accommodate the granularity needed to fully support and to end maintenance process, resulting in various excel sheets, documents and physical paper.
- Manual processes, resource allocation and planning
- Lengthy quote creation, documentation towards customers and many invoice specification inquires
