We offer extensive industry expertise

IT for industrial customers has been our hobby horse since the early days of the company. Everything else grew from there. We support the safe production on old mainframe computers, as well as customer information portals and wide SAP systems for booking, production and staff scheduling. Our portfolio is rounded off with security checks, such as those of SAP systems.

3 EXAMPLE PROJECTS

PMO-Support: Project organizations from large corporations increasingly require support in the interaction of project, program and portfolio management. SMF renders support at a large German chemical company in activities related to Project Management Office. Whether a tool-based support of project managers or the monitoring and preparation of monthly status reports – SMF assists in the right places. We also advise in the development of specific project management methodologies. We have therefore defined our training programs accordingly in that they include and recommend approaches of introduction of a professional Project Management Office.

Transmission Line Management: We have developed the resource information system FM-Base especially to serve the needs of our customer, a leading German service and system supplier for energy infrastructure. This tool helps utilities in operation, management and maintenance of high-voltage transmission lines and cables. It forms the high-voltage networks, starting from lines, tension fields and posts and to bills of components.

Business Intelligence/Big Data: Our experts in the field of Business Intelligence (BI) and Big Data ensure that corporate operational and strategic decisions can be made more effectively. They cover the entire development cycle from: assisting in the formulation of the question that should be answered with BI/Big Data and analyze necessary data sources and underlying data structures (structured/unstructured). This may be a variety of business systems (ERP, SCM, ERP, WMS) and other data sources (sensors, social media). The identified data will then be into a centralized database integrated with the help of suitable ETL tools or individually developed interfaces, in whose design we use theoretical concepts, which are tested in theory and practice.
