The Analytecs Plant Maintenance mart extracts data from the plant maintenance (PM) module of ERP solutions. You can use this data to analyze, manage, and plan issues related to plant maintenance.
The Analytecs Plant Maintenance is made up of subject areas, each related to analysis of plant maintenance as below:
Notification — Stores data about maintenance notifications. Used for planning, notifications inform the maintenance department about required tasks. Stored data includes information about maintenance tasks
requested and completed at a plant, including damage, causes of damage, related actions, and system availability. This mart includes mean-time-to-repair data and mean-time-between-repair data. With Analytecs mart you can analyze the history of a piece of equipment or you can analyze functional location failures.
Service Order — Stores data about maintenance Service Orders. This data includes information about the type of Service Order, the scope and deadlines, the required resources, and the accounting requirements.
Using the Service Order section, you can analyze the backlog of work at each functional location
Service Operation — Stores data about operations, the items or activities required by Service Orders. With Analytecs mart you can analyze the backlog of work and the effectiveness of planning efforts.
Service Confirmation — Stores data about confirmations, which document the actual time to complete maintenance on an item. With Analytecs mart you can analyze employee performance, comparing estimated to actual time.
Service Order Cost — Stores data about the cost (estimated, planned, and actual) to complete Service Orders. With Analytecs mart you can analyze maintenance costs by functional location.
Service Master — Allows you to explore the “characteristics” (configuration) associated with both Equipment and Functional Locations. Allows analysis where and how these characteristics are used.
The Analytecs Production Planning mart, enables you to analyze the planning components that automate the production process. The data that supports these planning components—work centers, routings, planning strategies, bill of materials, capacities, and MRP results—can provide insight into the production process and help you improve and streamline both the planning process and the actual production and procurement of goods and services.
Work center Subject Area — Stores data about work centers—the machines, production lines, or labor pools capable of producing units of work as output. The amount of work that a work center can produce during a given time is its capacity. Basic work center data includes category (labor, machine, etc.), description, location (plant), and standard values for queue times. This subject area also contains the work center hierarchy, which allows you to roll up work center capacity to accumulate capacities at various levels and contains the work center assignment to cost center.
Capacity Subject Area — Stores standard shift times and operating times for various capacity categories (machine, labor). Work centers have one or more capacities, measured in terms of units of time, associated with them. The combination of operating hours, utilization rate, and number of capacities determines the standard available capacity for the work center. Additional capacity, called interval available capacity, might be available for certain intervals of time. Capacity requirements generated by
production orders and planned orders using lead time scheduling are also included.
Materials requirement planning (MRP) results Subject Area — Stores the results tables from MRP and master production scheduling (MPS) planning runs.
Production BOM Subject Area — The Production Bill Of Materials (BOM) Subject Area of the Analytecs stores data that describes what materials are used in planning production of a given material and the quantity needed of each of its constituents. The BOM usage supported in this component is production. BOM tables included are single level, BOM explosion with quantities, and BOM explosion with materials-only for where-used reporting.
Production order Subject Area — Stores data about production orders. When goods are required, planned orders are converted to production orders. The production order specifies how much to produce, the routing, the bill of material used to reserve, produce or procure dependent materials, the scheduled and actual start and end dates, and the status of the order.
The Analytecs Project Systems mart, supports analysis of project information entered within the Project
System (PS) module. Both large scale projects, such as building a factory, and small-scale projects, such as organizing a trade fair, require precise planning of the many detailed activities involved. The project manager has the job of ensuring that the project is executed efficiently, on time, and within budget – which he or she achieves by ensuring that the required resources and funds are available as and when needed. The Analytecs Project Systems mart, provides a framework for monitoring projects progress, resources, costs and revenue.
The Analytecs Project Systems mart is made up of several componentized subject areas.
Milestone Subject Area — In general milestones are used to mark the transition between various phases or departments. You can also use Milestones for other tasks and functions in the Project System. You can
create milestones for activities and WBS elements. They can be used for the following tasks:
- Milestone Trend Analysis
- Earned Value Analysis
- Billing Plan
Network Order Subject Area — A network can represent the sequence of activities in a project or the sequence of a single activity within a project. You can graphically display various structural elements of a project and their interdependencies in the Project System. The network order is a category of internal order. The Activities of the network order are analogous to the operations on the internal order.
Project Cost Summary Subject Area — You use Project Costing to plan, monitor, and control project costs, thereby achieving comprehensive cost accounting.
Project Costing features include:
- Cost planning in various degrees of detail
- Automatic cost calculation wherever there are price and quantity structures
- Funds management, effected by means of budget allocation
- Integration of project costs with Enterprise Controlling, such as reconciliation with cost center accounting
PRT Assignment Subject Area — Unlike machines and fixed assets, production resources and tools (PRTs) are movable (not stationary) operating resources that are required to perform an activity and can be
used repeatedly. For example, PRTs include documents, engineering drawings, and measurement instruments.
