Industry controlling

Industrial controlling describes the area of entrepreneurial activities in which the controlling function has so far been most widespread and deepened. Traditionally, most aspects of controlling in industrial companies were developed, tested and then transferred to other industries, such as the service sector (service controlling, bank controlling, insurance controlling etc.) or the public sector.
Industrial companies are characterized by the fact that they aim to provide services in kind through the processing and extraction of materials (manufacturing, production). They can only be distinguished from the craft business by their larger workforce, higher plant intensity, larger production volume and a multi-level production and sales structure. Therefore, from the controlling point of view, solution approaches for industrial companies can in principle be transferred to craft companies.

Typische Besonderheiten des Industrie-Controlling sind daher Beschaffungscontrolling, Logistik-Controlling (insb. Controlling der Fertigungslogistik), Production controlling, Anlagencontrolling, Marketing controlling, Projekt-Controlling sowie F&E-Controlling.

Within the industrial controlling, essential differences regarding the production have to be considered. One differentiates, for example, the following manufacturing principles as well as their corresponding sub-areas of controlling:

• Flow production: production controlling,
• Series production: production controlling,
• Individual production: project controlling.

These differences can still be specified for certain areas of industry (construction, chemistry, electronics, etc.), as has happened variously in the literature.
