L’MIS – SMM

L’MIS

The L’MIS information system results from years of development activities at SMM. Our main activity derives from engineering, since we implement comprehensive projects from the fields of mechanical engineering, electrotechnics and informatics.

Based on extensive experience, our own problems and everyday commerce, the financial – technical Little Manager Information System (L’MIS) was developed. During development, we closely cooperated with experts from the Faculty of mechanical engineering (Chair of Modeling in technics and medicine) and the Faculty for computer science.

Years of hard work resulted in an information system, adapted for small and medium-sized companies. L’MIS is the perfect tool for project management in development and construction companies and enables simple and transparent monitoring of costs and quality. Because of its comprehensive features and intuitive user interface, L’MIS was accepted and verified as an appropriate information system carrier in companies. ISO applications are also possible.

Some of L’MIS’ important advantages include:

  • Data input (data is immediately entered on-site. Then, it is available in every sector of the company.)
  • Adaptation to processes (For example: the program can be adapted to the needs of construction processes)
  • Minimizes the staff, necessary for business support
  • Speeds up the communication with business partners and between personnel
  • Effectively connects scattered establishments to an integrated system
  • Ensures quality

L’MIS is designed for comprehensive business management, since it includes functions and overviews for all business aspects. By default, the functions are adjusted for companies from the field of design, construction and steelworks, heavy industry and industrial equipment, as well as research and development activities. Because of its unique and well-planned design, the system can easily be adapted for other industrial branches.

Integration with various ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) or PDM (Product Data Management) system is fully supported. In such a combination, L’MIS achieves (and exceeds) certain standards – for example TQM or ISO 9000.

L’MIS is designed for the prevention of deficiencies and errors. The basic process (modules Marketing, Development and Manufacturing / Production) can be upgraded by support processes (Personnel records, Business partners, Own investments, Finances) and are monitored by control processes (Analysis). This way, the program meets the strict criteria for accuracy, responsiveness, administrative control and preventative measures. L’MIS was developed with certain business goals in mind. This means, that the program is oriented towards project organization and standard acquisition. The software intuitively offers certain solutions and performs certain preventative analyzes. Some protective measures are carefully incorporated, so they help to prevent errors but don’t interfere with the overview or data access.

The L’MIS information system is based on a modular design with six levels:

L'MIS Structure

  1. Database
  2. Human resources and Business partners
  3. Marketing and Investments
  4. Warehouse management, Research and development and Production
  5. Finance
  6. Analyses

The first level (Database) is installed on the server; the other levels are performed in the applicative part of the program.

The modules Human resources and Business partners can operate independently, so they represent the smallest available package of the L’MIS information system.

The next structural level includes the modules Marketing and Investments. The basic building blocks (work orders), which are used by all the following modules, are created in this level. All projects and incidental activities (subcontracts, travel orders, …) are created in the Marketing module. Even though this level is the application’s basic functional core, it can not function independently (first and second level are required).

The true extent, usability and benefits of the program can be achieved by upgrading to the next level. The Warehouse management module is crucial for companies with commercial or trading activity. Companies, which develop or produce their own products, will considerably benefit from the Research and development and Sales modules.

The fifth level includes the Finance module for accounting and other financial activities. This level allows financial monitoring and control, invoice issuing, expense handling, settlement of bills, record keeping, accounting travel orders, …

The last level includes the Analyses module, which is designed for the leading personnel (management), since it offers business and performance analysis, overviews with various filters, analysis of individual business activities, analysis of the effectiveness of selected projects, …
