The client is a global Fortune 300 company that supplies atmospheric, process and specialty gases, high-performance coatings, and related services and technologies.
With 26,000 employees in more than 50 countries, the company is focused on making our planet more productive by helping customers become more profitable, efficient and environmentally friendly.
Coordinating the activity among many sites and in many countries, the client looked to JD Edwards and Smartbridge personnel to solve its worldwide coordination issues. They needed help managing multiple JD Edwards environments and projects worldwide.
In order to meet the client’s needs our professionals managed three concurrent projects and teams.
The first team implemented a standardized costing process for all North American companies. The second team developed a new Financial Chart of Accounts encompassing all businesses for Europe, Asia, South America and North America. The third team implemented JD Edwards Manufacturing, PDM and Shop Floor Control, in a subsidiary business that manufactures and refurbishes high pressure tanker trucks.
By standardizing the costing process between sites and establishing a standard Chart of Accounts to be used worldwide, the client could effectively define, measure, and manage their business across the globe. The manufacturing process resulted in increased efficiencies and less overhead resulting in greater profit for their tanker truck manufacturing division.
