Investments need to be thoroughly considered – that also goes for software in the production environment. For this purpose, MPDV has developed the online tool ROI Analyzer: It offers manufacturing companies an easy and quick option to calculate the potential return on investment (ROI) of a Manufacturing Execution System (MES) before implementing one.

Regardless of the economic situation, it is beneficial to know the profitability of a planned investment in advance. The free ROI Analyzer of MPDV gives an overview of the savings that can be achieved in individual areas or throughout the company by implementing specific MES functions. The ROI calculation is based on selected business parameters. An assessment that is tailored to the needs of the user shows where cost savings can be achieved in the fields of lead times, machine productivity, personnel efficiency and quality.

If required, an extensive ROI report is sent by mail and used for a subsequent MES implementation project.

Now also available in English

Recently, the ROI Analyzer has been made available for companies outside the German-speaking countries. Thanks to an English language version, companies and globally operating industrial corporations can now benefit from the tool and check beforehand the profitability of a planned MES implementation.
