Business need
Mlékárna Hlinsko aimed to build a company wide planning solution that would integrate department plans and enable accurate profitability calculations. Existing spreadsheet-based solution didn't provide sufficient granularity, flexibility, security, integrity and performance. The new solution was to utilize existing MS SQL Server data warehouse.

For Mlékárna Hlinsko we created a comprehensive planning application, using SAP Business Planning & Consolidation, version for MS SQL Server. The application covered sales planning, production planning, standard financial planning and profitability calculations. The solution also covered standard financial budgeting, forecasting and reporting.

The project has been delivered by consultants of the MIBCON Group.

  • Enablement of fast, flexible and detailed product and customer profitability calculations and analyses.
  • Shorter planning cycles and reduced amount of induced FTEs.

Key features

  • Multi-level allocation of overheads to products and customers.
  • Support for flexible, scenario-dependent definition of overheads, selection of allocation keys and allocation targets.
  • Import of BoMs and standard prices from primary production system, followed by automatic calculation of material and packaging costs per product.
