The Success Story
The Graphite Materials & Systems (GMS) and Composites – Fibers & Materials (CFM) business units both have KPI-driven strategy projects that directly influence how the company develops as well as projects in the area of Process Technology, which would constitute project business for SGL Carbon customers and require very precise resource planning. A solution is required that would offer a detailed overview of all projects, support resource planning, and provide a visual indication of the influence of measures on the KPI.
Clarity PPM, itd Advanced Resource Planning
Combining Clarity PPM (CA PPM) with the itd Advanced Resource Planning solution provides the ideal solution for taking reliable control over KPI-driven projects while at the same time enabling detailed resource planning in the area of process technology. A total of 250 users use the PPM solution implemented by itdesign.
