Planning and Budgeting
Based on our vast experience in project planning and budgeting, we have developed our own methodology that we have named 3P – Priprema, Pozor, Plan (3P – Ready, Steady, Plan).
In the Ready phase a planning process is analyzed and defined with our clients.
In the Steady phase we use software tools to transform our idea into the final product.
The Plan phase involves production in which a user creates planned documents with the new solution.
For example, let’s say there is a sale per article plan with a specified gross margin. By implementing a component (production normative) into a model, we are able to analyze how a price change for basic raw materials affects the gross margin – for example what will the profit be if the price of a certain raw material goes up by 10%.
Project planning includes all business functions. After completing the sales plan, the production and procurement are also planned, as well as the costs (of raw materials, amortization, work process and investment). The planned profit and loss account is at the top, with its items being a synthesis of individual plans. An overall plan for the whole business process has its variants (e.g. optimistic, or pessimistic).
Applicative solution contains monitoring of all the planning phases and participants. It enables more scrutinized planning and with more accuracy than in a classic way. The plans are mutually connected. An added value for the management is the possibility of the simple testing of a plan’s version before making a final decision.
Our services include planning methodology analysis and help in its definition, all the way from the design to creating the planned application based on that methodology by utilizing IBM Cognos TM1.
