EvoBus GmbH: Tool based preference determination of new vehicles

Starting point

    • Extraction of cross-plant master data and production costing data from SAP
    • Data preparation, harmonisation and integration
    • Executing the preference determination
    • Cross-plant and cross-brand documentation driven by template


  • Significant reduction of execution time
  • Ensured compliance
  • Transparency across all plants and brands
