Products | PSI - predictive saving identifier

AI-DRIVEN  | Next Level Procurement Excellence

Identify potential savings in mass data of up to 12% of your purchasing volume. Find similar items within seconds, automate the pooling of items, calculate scenarios and automate the selection of suppliers. The "PSI - predictive saving identifier" is your entry into procurement excellence with Artifical Intelligence.

Procurement Excellence with Artifical Intelligence

The PSI - predictive saving identifier for Advanced Procurement

The PSI identifies potential savings, finds similar or identical components, calculates prices of new components and also masters the caclulation of CO2 carbon footprint in mass data. The PSI answers questions, that arise daily in procurement and represents Procurement Excellence at the highest level. With PSI's state-of-the-art algorithms, our customers calculate the perfect target price formulas and use these formulas directly in the CostChecker 3D CAD module for Model-Based Cost Engineering.

AAS - automatic algorithm search

With "AAS - automatic algorithm search", the PSI finds the best and most accurate calculation method for the input data - fully automated. What additionally distinguishes the PSI - predictive saving identifier: High mathematics - easy to use. The PSI provides new, fact-based arguments for renegotiations with suppliers and can be fully integrated into existing IT Infrastructures (ERP, PLM, PDM).

SID - similar item detection

For companies it is impotant to find their way through large databases, in order to avoid redundancies and increase the reuse of items. With SID - similar item detection our cutomers are able to find similar components or assemblies within seconds. But in some cases, no 3D geometry, no 3D CAD file is available. With SID you can even find similar items based only on 2D drawings.

DCF - Data-Driven Carbon Footprint

Efficient analysis methods are needed, to determine the carbon emissions of products. However, the reduction of emissions along the value chains requires a high level of detail of the process chains. This knowledge is often missing at the beginning of carbon projects. For this reason, we distinguish between two approaches to map the carbon emissions of products:

DMA - dynamic materialprice adjustment

Prices of raw material will continue to be under constant observation in 2022. A slowdown in price increases is expected for 2022. However, the situation remains difficult and suppliers will continuously adjust prices. To ensure full transparency in this situation, the PSI includes the function "DMA - dynamic materialprice adjustment". For this purpose, PSI has stored the raw material prices of many materials over many years. This means that it is known at any time whether the suppliers' price demands are justified. With just one mouse click.

Aktives OSC - optimize supplier clustering im PSI

OSC - optimize supplier clustering

OSC - optimize supplier clustering, supports the procurement departments in supplier management. Intelligent algorithms allocate articles optimally to suppliers - based on criteria to be specifically defined. The PSI - predictive saving identifier knows, based on the integrated data models, which suppliers are the right suppliers for the items - from a technical and commercial perspective. For existing items, but also for new components or assemblies. It has never been easier to identify the most suitable suppliers for your items.

TSNE - T-Distributed Stochastic Neighbor Embedding

TSNE is the perfect solution to identify unlogical price structures in thousends of items.

DCC - Data-Driven Connector for Connections to the ERP System

DCC - Data-Driven Connector to ERP Systems

With the DDC - Data-Driven Connector Module, the PSI integrates perfect to your ERP and PLM- Systems and deliver answers, directly where they are needed.

HCC - hybrid cost calculation (Bottom-UP integriert)

With AEPC - automated enterprise product costing, a high amount of components can be calculated fully automatically. For certain items, it makes more sense to use a classic Bottom-UP costing process. The PSI offers all possibilities for this. The integrated Bottom-UP costing of costdata® is therefore fully integrated. The costdata® software, integrated in the PSI - predictive saving identifier, enable extensive Bottom-UP calculations and detailed cost-breakdowns. We rely on costdata® when Bottom-UP calculations are needed.
