TIPS is tightly integrated with SAP ERP, enabling the use of standard SAP with industry-specific extensions. TIPS has also a comprehensive sales order processing module designed for our customer industries enabling immediate automatic order confirmation and multileg logistics with manual/EDI-based communication.

Production and quality

TIPS takes care of material traceability, starting from received raw materials up to finished goods delivered. The system tracks waste components including machine time, material and quality-based waste. For order fulfilment, TIPS minimises unnecessary over- or underproduction ensuring the correct amounts are produced. In an industry with a high degree of automation, TIPS supports process automation towards operator-free manufacturing.

Costs, pricing and profitability

TIPS costing provides calculation of standard products. Using the consumptions from TIPS BoM, it computes actuals and variances in the cost tracking process. Simulation functions are available to achieve profitability-based raw material planning. For industries where easy article configuration is needed, our price calculator provides accurate calculations in the offering process before manufacturing and comparison with the actuals afterwards.

Data, analytics and KPIs

Our Reporting and Business Intelligence (BI) tools describe what happened in the past and by using statistical models can predict what will happen in the future. Advanced analytics provides predictive (what will happen), diagnostic (why it happened) and prescriptive (what should be done) analytics. Artificial Intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) provide new ways to perform analyses.

Integrations

The automation integration library contains ready-made interfaces with most of the devices commonly used in the industry.
