Short description:

The costing programme is extended by further service specifications in order to achieve a better costing quality. Furthermore, extensive functions are implemented in order to obtain benefits for further areas on the one hand and to increase ergonomics on the other. PTA conducts workshops in the departments to determine targeted functionalities and implements the functionality in the existing calculation programme.


The calculation programme consists of two parts: On the one hand, a Windows programme (desktop application, implemented in WPF, C#.NET), with which construction projects can be planned and calculated, and on the other hand, an SAP component. This provides SAP service items from suppliers (ABAP programme) and transforms created calculations into purchase orders (SAP MM or SAP PM interface) or tenders (FUTURA interface). The extension mainly refers to new functionalities of the Windows programme and includes extensive refactoring measures of the existing code base. This is stored in the TFS together with the user stories and the test cases.

Technical description:

The planning and budgeting process for new construction and maintenance work on the gas pipeline network is supported by providing the service specifications and the negotiated prices of the suppliers. In addition, this can be used to place an order with the supplier that is adapted to the customer's ordering process.
