The ORBIS Product Cost Calculator (ORBIS PCC), an SAP add-on based on ABAP, enables calculation directly in SAP, across accounting and cost accounting areas with a uniform calculation scheme. The online access to current controlling and production data as well as purchasing and sales terms, which is maintained centrally in SAP, makes it possible to accurately and quickly calculate product and production costs, from the construction to the quotation phase. Wage labor or external work processes are also considered. ORBIS PCC extends SAP Standard: With ORBIS PCC, all calculation phases are located 100% in SAP – SAP is the main system.
THE ADVANTAGES OF THE ORBIS PRODUCT COST CALCULATOR AT A GLANCE:
- Up-to-date, accurate calculation data and quick creation and simulation of calculations through real-time integration into the existing SAP ERP system
- Low maintenance, as existing ERP data are accessed from almost all SAP modules: integrated data models, therefore no data redundancy
- Quick retrieval of calculations (centrally stored in SAP, various search functions)
- Uniform central calculation with or without master data in SAP
- Intuitive and user-friendly operation
- Quick creation and processing of calculations with calculation templates
- Cost and process transparency across product cost life cycles, tools and country borders for quick and sound management decisions
- Efficient calculating based on consistent process integration (e.g. request - cost estimate - order) and avoidance of media breaks
- Efficient “make-or-buy” decisions through market and supplier analyses based on average, global material, machine and labor costs
THE ADVANTAGES OF SAP TECHNOLOGY AND SAP INTEGRATION
- SAP basis technology: existing company SAP / IT resources can be used
- Users already work with SAP and can immediately create calculations without extensive training requirements
- No further investments into additional infrastructures (server, database) required
- Reduction of number of interfaces, systems and potential sources of error
- Investment protection: own SAP name space; ORBIS PCC can be extended through standardized SAP interfaces at any time
- Reduction of process costs through automated generation of master data
ORBIS PCC provides the best possible support for design and development costing, quotation costing and production cost plus with surcharges and variable items.
