Inekon Systems Strengthens Its Position In Automotive Industry

INEKON SYSTEMS will supply modern management solution for tactic planning to company Magna Cartech. As a quickly growing company active in the pressing and welding of car body metal parts, Magna Cartech will be able to flexibly respond to changes on the market and get a better idea of what product lines are offering good prospects and what is their profitability. System implementation is expected to be completed in the second quarter of this year. Magna Cartech's customers include companies like Volswagen, Škoda, BMW, PSA, SAAB and Daimler Chrysler.

"An advantage of the Business Navigation System Advanced Budgeting solution is the possibility of a continuous plan update with constantly shifting target horizon or its parallel variants valid for the whole executive period," told Ing. Jan Hušek, Ph.D., commercial director of INEKON SYSTEMS, s. r. o. "Company managers are now able to respond flexibly to any customer requirements without the risk associated with sudden changes of the original plan. BNS AB enables simulation and modelling of business results which make it easier to decide on corporate strategy and shorten the planning cycle."

For Magna Cartech, the implementation of Business Navigation Systems Advanced Budgeting (BNS AB) means an integration of planning and analytical procedures into a comprehensive system. It includes deviation detection, deviation analysis, interpretation and navigation for correction. It is a positive feature that BNS AB is built on the top of the well-known MS Excel environment .

"One of the crucial moments in the selection of a new planning and analytic solution was its compatibility with the MFG/PRO information system that is currently in use in our company," said Petr Konopásek, director of. "We expect BNS to provide precise yearly plans that are not static but that enable quick and effective response to market development. We hope that the change will save the time of the management who will be able to pay their attention to processes for increasing customer satisfaction.“

The current collaboration of INEKON SYSTEMS and Magna Cartech can considered to be a pilot project. After BNS AB functionality is confirmed, implementation will be decided for other plants of Cosma Europe that belong to the international Canadian concern of Magna International Inc. which is one of the most important suppliers to automotive industry in the world.

It is an in-house concept of INEKON SYSTEMS that is capable of uniting planning and analytical processes with the main activity of the company. It helps create a complex navigation system to make all key corporate processes transparent and simple. Currently, the system is implemented in companies like Madeta, Kofola, Státní tiskárna cenin, Budějovický Budvar, Hamé, Metrostav, PNS, Mondi Packaging, Jitona, Meopta, Esa, SC Johnson, TRW – Carr, Matador Automotive Vráble, D Plast Efftec, Česká zbrojovka, Lanex, Jitona, Komterm, Unex, ŽOS Zvolen and Subterra.
