What is EN4M™?

With the platform EN4M™ business applications can be implemented easily and are optional in scale. Based on the standard modules and functions of the platform there are several best practice solutions as for example for project management and issue management. These represent the longstanding experience of ENCOM and their customers in this field.
The first priority is to increase efficiency for customers and hence contribute to the increase of economic savings of our customers. This scalable and user-friendly solution serves as a central system for all those involved in the project and planning, and creates synergies for success - whatever the industrial sector, size of company, or company division.

Range of application

EN4M™ is a cross-sector business application platform both for service providers and manufacturing companies that develop and produce goods.

Automotive- & automotive supply industries

Automotive and automotive supply industries

'Dynamic' is the characteristic adjective of the automotive industry. And among OEMs and suppliers this dynamism comes to the fore in many ways. For example in the globalised highly competitive market, shorter product development cycles, yet with more complex production processes, as well as very high demands on quality, and in the challenge of efficiently coordinating project participants operating in a decentralised way across the globe. The continually expanding variety of products and variants and extreme cost pressures are just as typical of the industry as the imperative to open up new markets and build up production capacities to meet them.

ENCOM has been supporting successful renowned players in the automotive industry for almost two decades with well-designed standard and individual solutions. This wealth of experience is at the basis of EN4M™. EN4M™ cross-links the dynamic project landscape and connects decentralised structures both within the enterprise and in a context of external partners. Complexity is significantly reduced. The result: Greater efficiency at all levels, from projects and processes through to the finished product. For a sustainable position in global competition.

Plant engineering / mechanical engineering

Plant engineering / mechanical engineering

Just as in other industries, plant/mechanical engineering now has to deal with the issues of globalisation and protection of the environment. It's crucial to deal successfully with the challenges specific to the industry: Equipment is becoming increasingly complex, while there is a desire for straightforward and comfortable ease of operation.
The accelerating involvement of IT and communications technologies in the industry and growing combinations of individual pieces of machinery to form complete systems demands greater sophistication in planning and production from industry players - yet in the face of ever tighter budgets and rising project risks.

ENCOM's EN4M™ software forms a toolbox which helps to manage even the largest projects efficiently, and to reorganise processes and structures. This is done by the interweaving of information and stakeholders as well as incorporating a customised reduction in complexity at all levels: project, process and product.

Steel industry

Steel industry

The steel industry has a somewhat low-tech image, but the reality is far different: it is an industry of high-tech requirements and challenges to prevail in global competition against providers from emerging economies. On top of that it is vital to respond to ever-more demanding global markets with increasingly specialised solutions.

EN4M™ gives customers in the steel and plant engineering industries an effective toolkit to achieve successful positioning in the global market by improving communications between all stakeholders in a project, and by streamlining complex project procedures whilst increasing efficiency. From the initial contact onward through the stages of cost estimation, requirements planning, and later still controlling, EN4M™ provides the solution for each enterprise's individual problems.

Shipyards and yacht builders

Shipyards and yacht builders

Shipyards and yacht builders have to coordinate and unite very diverse areas of expertise, and both internal and external resources on the way to the finished product. Yacht builders implement such a wide variety of customer wishes that no end product is exactly the same as any other. Each luxury yacht is one of a kind, and the product creation process takes between 24 and 48 months. To achieve these throughput times, the processes have to be optimally tuned to each other. Conventionally the coordination of such projects has been mainly done manually - that is, with no IT support. The result of the project could be scheduled by only very few very experienced persons. The business know-how is largely personal, and this poses a significant risk to the industry.  Using EN4M™ channels this know-how back into the company and makes it available for future projects. EN4M™ also provides all the necessary tools to manage complex contracts and adhere to through-put times, or make time savings where possible.

Engineering & development­ service providers

Engineering & development service providers

There are three critical factors for success in engineering today: flexibility, speed, and cost effectiveness. Industry sectors which depend on engineering are characterised by global competition, cost pressures, continually shortening development spans and product cycles. This business environment is then passed on to engineering service providers. Efficient processes and interlinked project structures are more necessary now than ever before to be able to respond to these challenges and to ensure successful project control including monitoring and correction options at all relevant levels. The nature of sub-processes as an integral part of the product creation process chain is often hidden when they are performed by engineering and development services providers.
EN4M™ is a tried-and-tested solution for these situations and ensures efficiency at all levels: project, process and product.

Chemical industries and construction

Chemical industries and construction

The classic examples where project management of large contracts is needed is in the chemical industries and construction industry. Companies in these sectors make use of project management systems supplemented by standard software to meet the demands of project management.
EN4M™ unites the features and capabilities of these systems and becomes the central tool for the planning and control of processes and projects. EN4M™ interlinks all the stakeholders across the world and makes project information available in real time as appropriate to each user.

Power­ station­ development

Power station development

Main­ contractors for large-scale­ project

Main contractors for large-scale projects

The classic case where project management of large contracts is needed is for main contractors of large-scale projects, for example in industrial manufacturing plants (steelworks). Companies in these sectors make use of project management systems supplemented by standard software to meet the demands of project management.
EN4M™ unites the features and capabilities of these systems and becomes the central tool for the planning and control of processes and projects. EN4M™ interlinks all the stakeholders across the world and makes project information available in real time as appropriate to each user.

Municipalities and public administration

Municipalities and public administration

The challenges which industry has had to face for a long time now are now manifesting themselves in the area of public administration. Local authorities and rural districts feel the growing pressure upon them. The ever growing complexity of municipal projects, with their increasing numbers of separate tasks, demands efficient handling. It's no minor undertaking in the face of ever shrinking revenues from taxes and fees, staff cuts, and lowered budgets for new ventures.
ENCOM's EN4M™ software is a solution which can help take command of even the largest projects, and reorganise processes and structures. This is achieved through the improvement of communications between all stakeholders in the project and the streamlining of complex procedures while raising efficiency.
