Abstract:Gietart Kaltenbach designs, engineers and produces several types of shot blasting machines for steel service treatment. These machines are used to remove the unwanted corrosion and the metallic waste on finished goods. The reason behind this research is that Gietart is not able to give reliable information to the customer regarding the progress and the cost price of the project. This is caused by shortcomings on three different aspects. The first shortcoming in the current situation is that Gietart is not able to realize and use an accurate project planning. The second shortcoming is that the current cost price model and cost allocation are outdated and do not match the structure of the organisation. It is unknown whether the cost price of a project covers the total costs. Therefore, Gietart Kaltenbach has no insight in the profitability of the project types. The third problem is the absence of a clear pre-calculation and post-calculation method. Following the Heerkens method (2017), the following core problem is found: ‘The ERP does not provide the correct/reliable data’. Solving this problem supports Gietart in achieving the earlier defined goals. Therefore, the main research question addressed during this research is formulated as follows: ‘To achieve its defined goals, which criteria must Gietart’s ERP meet regarding the design and working method?’. The three goals of Gietart Kaltenbach are: 1. To realize a project planning. 2. To design a transparent cost price model 3. To be able o realize an accurate pre-calculation and post-calculation, which can be compared.
