We are committed to providing experienced engineering consultancy expertise combined with expert knowledge about the use of innovative IT tools for the management of technical projects. Our efforts result in projects with significantly lower overall costs, more transparency in processes, and shorter project running times.
Operators of technical facilities must make investments at certain intervals in order to maintain and expand those facilities and adapt them market requirements. To do this, they carry out a series of technical projects, CAPEX (capital expenditure) and OPEX projects (operating expenses, maintenance, and standstill projects). Depending on their size and complexity, these projects have project running times ranging from a few days to several years. Due to their size, their technical requirements and the availability of the necessary technical facilities, they entail a considerable risks for operators. In addition, such projects are characterized by the interplay of many stakeholders, often a whole network (operators, contractors and suppliers). Applications, calculation, planning, execution, monitoring, feedback and controlling of corresponding projects present a challenge for every operator.
COSMO CONSULT’s EPM provides you with the methods, tools and resources that fit your needs. What distinguishes us from our competitors is our combination of engineering know-how, IT know-how and many years of experience in customer projects with successful references.
Our experienced project managers, some of whom have more than 25 years of experience in the field of industrial projects, have developed a toolbox set of applications for project management and project controlling. This includes a project management seminar with an introduction to Microsoft Project. During this seminar, you have the unique opportunity to learn from some of the most knowledgeable experts in the industry, who pass on their knowledge as senior consultants at the COSMO CONSULT TIC.
At the end of the workshop, the participants will be able to:

With Microsoft Project, companies can map all relevant project management tasks. With our many years of experience, we are able to advise and support you in the conception, implementation and adaptation of Microsoft Project Server or Project Online. On-premises, hybrid or cloud-based solution scenarios are possible. Of course, we can also support you in migrating data from old schedules and training your users.
On the basis of Microsoft standard software for scheduling, we have created add-ons that will make your planning easier. Our planning aids will help you with the conception, carry out routine checks for the planning, easily integrate external plans into your schedule and use one of the possible mobile feedback options.
Industry 4.0, the industrial aspect of the Internet of Things, is part of a profound transformation and is enabling new value creation networks and business models. Feedback from the installer or tradesman - digital tracking of equipment, components, machines, spare parts - communicating tools - here we see great potential for putting our know-how as process consultants and IT specialists to use and providing our customers with professional process and IT services assistance.
That's why we developed the digital construction site portal - a cloud-based platform - with the help of which the entire value-added chain can be mapped from orders to production, and intelligent tracking during assembly on site to predictive maintenance service. In an award-winning showcase at the trade fair Hannover Messe 2017, COSMO CONSULT demonstrated the use of business apps on the cc|smart cloud platform and the latest IoT technologies for tracking position and sensor data on pumps as smart assets. The digital construction site portal offers a comprehensive range of functions for all companies that want to support their product or their facilities and assets throughout their entire life cycle and offer services within the framework of new business models.
An important trend in industry is the combination of a collaborative project management with a powerful 3D visualization of digital models - Plan 4D. This opens up new possibilities for the planning, managing and communication aspects of extensive and complex industrial projects. In many fields, people are already working closely with 3D models and virtual reality. In these areas, the collaborative project planning is based on the 3D model, the 4D project planning, and the logical step of digitalization. In the digital construction site cooperation network, COSMO CONSULT TIC and Fraunhofer IFF are working together to develop solutions for Plan 4D - for example 4D construction site facility planning.
