Project-based manufacturing in real-time, a significant added value
Experience, a key factor for success
The success and accomplishment of a project always depends on the competence of its actors. But the pressure exerted today by the market in terms of margins, deadlines and penalties for delay require, in addition to experience, the use of proactive tools that let you manage uncertainties, anticipate the drifts and reduce administrative costs.
With over 30 years of experience in the management of industrial projects, ProConcept Projects has been developed to offer a tool adapted to the specificities of active SMBs in the development of capital goods, prototypes, series 0, in the construction of machine tools or metallic structures and in construction site management, whether they are in the field of road constructions, nuclear, mechanical or spatial, etc.
ProConcept Projects offers a wide and powerful range of features, including the progress figures and turnover, evolving bills of materials, invoicing due dates, retroactive or real time financial tracking, situation n/n-1, Gantt project management, margin calculation and risk management, real time multi-project consolidation, etc.
Calculating a deadline when completing the project requires a perfect control over the loads and associated capacities, in addition to the the company resources, at all times. Adjusting your teams is simplified, thanks to a highly efficient view of inter-functional loads (occupancy of an employee working on the project and carrying out external after-sales missions), or the long-term load view by competency groups.
ProConcept also manages the load by workstation (task scheduling, over a short-term or mid-term horizon) or load center (project planning, over a long-time horizon).
You can also manage your resources over short-term and long-term, and view their usage in relation to the deadlines fixed by planning.
For companies involved in serial manufacturing and project-based manufacturing (series 0, proto-typing), integrating all their resources lets them see the impact of serial production on the project, and vice versa.
Manufacturing modes (unique, mixed)
You can manage the manufacturing of unique projects as well as standard components, and hence work in a mixed manner, on the manufacturing order for standard components, in simplified management mode via manufacturing files for special manufacturing (reduced administrative management cost).
In both these cases, you have the entire power of ProConcept available, for example: operational or process traceability, post calculation, automatic creation of bills of materials from CAD/CAM systems, MRPII requirements calculation for the task based on a bill of materials that is still incomplete, which lets you anticipate the strategic procurements and provide real answers to simultaneous engineering, subcontracting orders generation, etc.
Furthermore, resource sharing between unique and serial manufacturing is transparent (the same resources can be used).
Control all possible scenarios (even website)
Via the expanse of its functionalities, ProConcept lets you control all possible scenarios, for example:
- Do you do subcontracting or manufacturing, or both?
- Do you order to project or on stock?
- Do you work on order or with provisional projects?
- Do you manufacture some of your products in series?
With the possibility of orienting only a part of your activities to 'Project-based management', instead of all the company activities.
Evolving Bills of Materials
As a solution to managing evolving bills of materials, typical problem in simultaneous engineering, ProConcept lets you anticipate the procurements by making requirements calculation for the task and for a project based on a bill of materials that is still incomplete.
This "just-in-time" calculation triggers the modification of requirement dates for one section of the project, in case of re-planning.
The integrated solution for project-based manufacturing
Realization of complex industrial projects, you design, manufacture, install special equipment, all while tracking different management axes.
