Integrated software solution for elevator construction

In elevator construction price competition is forcing the industry to constantly rationalise and innovate. Technical innovations such as elevators without a machine room are a ray of hope. Orders received for cable elevators without machine rooms now form more than two thirds of the elevator market.

As one of the world's leading Microsoft Dynamics ERP partners and a certified industry expert, COSMO CONSULT offers industry solutions for the elevator construction industry that have been fully tested by Microsoft.

Specialist in elevator construction

Elevator construction products can differ greatly and changes to the designs are often made. The same components are installed, albeit in different forms. That is why it is extremely beneficial to be able to simply refer to checklists of the product requirements that vary from project to project. The resulting dynamic bills of materials increase efficiency during the design phase. Existing lists can be revised quickly and easily and stored as a new reference document.

When there are design RFQs, it is important that the designer (or engineer) can check the quotation from a technical perspective or support the company in creating the quotation. Simultaneous costing is vital to keep costs transparent from the beginning and view the current status across all departments.

A powerful, industry-specific ERP system provides elevator construction companies with the support they require in these areas.

Cost transparency throughout the entire production period

"Task-based scheduling” can provide support in utilising machinery and production processes. Companies that require a visual representation of their utilisation can configure their sequence planning using a graphical planning grid and then make changes directly to the grid with drag & drop. If customers send modification requests during the manufacturing process and there is a machine data connection to the ERP system, the elevator software allows a flexible response during production.

Project Management

Project management is also supported from the quotation calculation stage onwards. Decisive success factors include drawing up project structure plans to control procurement items and optimising the delivery process, for example, in which materials are delivered directly to the customer assembly point.

A powerful, industry-specific ERP system provides elevator construction companies with the support they require in these areas.

Seamless integration of Microsoft Office

The advantages of seamless integration of Microsoft Office are obvious: you can work across program boundaries without media interruptions. For example, you can easily make bulk data changes in Microsoft Excel by exporting tables to Excel, editing them and then importing them back into the ERP system. This import undergoes the corresponding plausibility checks, so that only valid data is sent to Microsoft Dynamics. The result is numerous seamless interactions between the Microsoft worlds.

ERP for all areas of elevator construction

  • Factory data capture offers the ability to use time more accurately as well as to illustrate time and time-related data more clearly.
  • Construction department: seamlessly CAD integration into the ERP system.
  • Mobile warehouse management is the holistic special solution for mobile field services seamlessly integrated in Microsoft Dynamics NAV.
  • Document archiving is aniIntuitive document management system in Microsoft Dynamics. The “document box” that is integrated into the ERP system serves as a central storage location for all kinds of documents. You can simply use "drag & drop” to move the documents there. Postings can also be initiated and sent directly from the ERP system and archived immediately (in PDF format). In addition, this approach can be used as a simple method of mapping cross-department project work with the SharePoint as an Intranet system.
  • With formatted documents, users have the ability to enhance and improve the appearance of reports or documents through the use of an integrated word processor directly in Microsoft Dynamics NAV.
  • Vendor rating is used as a basis for decision-making in the allocation process and also for the ongoing control of supplier relationships.
  • Workflow management helps the teams in your organisation work through their respective tasks on time and in the proper manner.
