Your way to smart costing: intelligent cost calculation with ORBIS

Calculation of product costs with ORBIS Product Cost Calculator directly in SAP with and without master data

ORBIS Product Cost Calculator (ORBIS PCC) is a costing software that was developed as an SAP add-onbased on ABAP. Do you use an ERP system from SAP? Our costing tool enables cross-company code costing directly in SAP ERP with a standardized calculation procedure.

Real-time accessto the up-to-date controlling and production data, as well as purchasing and sales conditions, maintained centrally in the ERP solution, enable accurate and quick calculation of product and production costs – from the design to the quotation phase. Contract work or external work processes are also taken into account by our software.

ORBIS PCC extends the SAP standard solution: With our costing program, all phases of the costing process are 100% in SAP – SAP is the leading system and therefore forms the foundation of the costings.

The following areas of application are supported:


ORBIS PCC as an integrator for costing processes

Integrated costing processes for sustainable business success

Profit is the only meaningful measured variable illustrating a company’s long-term success. Pricing is the strongest influencing factor against this backdrop. To setcompetitive prices and thus take into account all costs incurred, it’s helpful to use a program that enables quick and standardized calculation of both product and production costs, not to mention quotation costing and provides a complete overview – from design to sales and controlling. The more accurate the costing, the more informed the decisions based on them will be to manage your business with foresight and efficiency and to ensure profits in the long run.

Many manufacturing companies already use SAP ERP to plan and manage their business processes. But, in most cases, product costs (prices for materials, hourly rates, tariffs, etc.) and pricings are calculated and simulated in external solutions like Microsoft Excel or Access. Since these calculations are generated outside of the ERP solution, neither data flows nor calculation histories can be reproduced. Another disadvantage is the high error rate and the enormous maintenance effort in terms of time, as the costing data constantly needs to be manually copied or transferred between SAP and Excel and updated. This problem is exacerbated for complex products or products involving a large number of variants.

So it’s obvious that, for transparent and flexible costing, companies need software that prevents media discontinuity through integrated processes and thus ensures an overview of all costs, prices and quotations.

Smart costing in SAP: Continuous costing process without media discontinuity

The graphic on the left illustrates the costing process without ORBIS PCC, which is characterized by various data sources and media discontinuity, as well as a great deal of time-consuming manual effort. The optimization achieved by our costing program can be seen in the graphic on the right: One data source, integrated processes and transparency in all phases of the costing process.

With ORBIS PCC, all stages of the costing process are 100% in SAP – from the inquiry to the delivery. The software starts at the point where the SAP standard solution isn’t adequate and thus extends the costing possibilities within the ERP system.

ORBIS PCC’s functional highlights

ORBIS PCC is a combination of the most important functions from the SAP modules Controlling (CO), Production (PP), Purchasing (MM) and Sales (SD). As an extension of the SAP standard solution, costings can be carried out clearly and conveniently in ORBIS PCC, even without master data.

The special feature: In contrast to the base planning objects in SAP, ORBIS PCC also enables multi-level costing and thus allows the assemblies to be broken down to the lowest level. These costings can be based on previously created templates, document structures, sales documents and materials or routings. Costings can also be carried out without a template. If required, master data (material master, bill of materials, routing), quotations and customer orders can be generated automatically.

The costing process is simplified by extensive search aids, context menus and comparisons, as well as an intuitive and user-friendly operation.
