Cost control is an essential part of running any business. It is organised by financial year using the three methods of accounting: cost accounting, management accounting and financial accounting.
Amounts recorded during a financial year are locked at the end of the year and subsequent amounts are applied to the following financial year.
CARL Source includes a complete library of print and analysis reports: business dashboards, ABC classification of assets by maintenance costs, mean distance between failures, mileage costs, fuel costs, availability of rolling stock, ABC classification of categories by inventory value, analysis of symptoms, causes, solutions, etc.
In addition to the standard print reports, users can create their own library of custom reports.
CARL Source contains a library of standard indicators: blocked rolling stock, open work orders, items in need of repair, etc. They can be viewed and new ones built very easily. Relevant indicators can be grouped to create custom dashboards that will automatically appear as simple and customisable graphics (e.g. red, green or orange lights) each time you log on to CARL Source. You see potential problems at a glance and with a single click you instantly access the information you need to make informed decisions.
