Final Delivery

The Final Solution: KoopaKonstruct Manager

The BPMN diagram below is a simple representation of our KoopaKonstruct Manager.

In summary we are using Hololenses to inspect a chosen area where we want to e.g. hang up a coat rack, build a table, and similar. In order to make the Hololenses smart, we have integrated OpenAI. We are using Function calling to provide instructions about the requested project, information about necessary materials and quantity.This is where we are making our KoopaKonstruct really smart.

As real #Crawlers we use OpenAI’s Function calling to dynamically create the search criterias based on natural language. Google Speach to text is used to capture the natural language query. We are really integrating into everything that flips bits #Embedding numbnuts! With help of the search criterias, we are able to provide critical information further into the supply chain, meaning all the way down to the FinOps where we are improving critical business processes (this will be explained later in this blog post).

Below is a picture from the Hololenses where we use a button to speak with AI:

GPTVision helps us interpret work drawings and breaks it down into the steps needed, so that we can get a clear instruction of what materials we need, how many and how to build the desired object. Using Power Automate, we are able to share and send the item details and necessary quantity into FinOps.

As an addition to the OpenAI magic, we have also created a canvas app that is integrated in the Hololense #PlugN’Play. From this app you can perform business processes, such as triggering sales orders, check inventory status, and 4 different Power BI reports to monitor sales orders and follow up late deliveries #Dash it out.

And here is where we really improve business processes; when the information is sent to FinOps we use X++ code to check inventory status. If materials are in stock, a sales order is created and sales order confirmation is sent. If there are no (or not enough) materials in stock, we also create a purchase order in addition to the sales order. A link between the purchase order and sales order is created, enabling the ability to understand where the demand is coming from. Additionally, to make the KoopaKonstruct Manager adaptable to e.g. construction companies, we have created the possibility to link the purchase and sales orders with projects. This provides a lot of possibilities for detailed project management for the finance geeks.

Below is our argumentation to why we believe we should score high on all 4 categories!

Most Extreme Business Value

Our team embarked on a quest to redefine the meaning of business value, and we present to you KoopaKonstruct Manager – a solution that not only orders products through Hololenses but catapults business efficiency into a realm beyond imagination.

Automating the Complete Supply Chain with Hololenses

We harnessed the power of Hololenses to revolutionize the way products are ordered. One user, equipped with the mighty Hololens, registers the necessary quantity with a mere wave of the hand, triggering a Power Automate flow like a seasoned Mario collecting power-ups.

The adventure doesn’t stop there! Our Power Automate flow seamlessly transmits the order information to FinOps using the Execute action. The magic unfolds as FinOps automatically generates a sales order and a purchase order based on inventory stock. But here’s where the plot thickens – these orders are not solitary entities; they are linked together, creating a dynamic duo that unravels the mystery behind each purchase. There is no need to spend as much as a second wondering how or why the orders were created; the link indicate that there is a demand behind each purchase order.

See yourself sitting in an ordering office at a company where the customers are able to generate sales orders by only entering a demand. And, in addition to the automatic creation of sales order, imagine that you did not have to study the master plan to generate the purchase order as it is automatically created! And as a side salsa, you did not even have to trigger the sales order confirmation as it is sent automatically. So, while you are sitting there wondering about what to do with your life (and how long it takes before the CEO finds out that you are useless as the power of Power Automate and X++ took your job), you can relax and focus on other more important things in life, such as playing a Super Mario game.

Power Stars: Automated Project Linkage

But wait, there’s more! We also increased the business value for construction and engineering enterprises. With the ability to automatically link both the purchase and sales orders to projects, we’ve bestowed upon industries that thrive on projects a golden opportunity to enhance their efficiency and project management. It’s not just about ordering; it’s about constructing a bridge to a new era of project-linked prosperity.

The Warp Whistle to Most Extreme Business Value

We make a bold claim for the “Most Extreme Business Value” category in this year’s ACDC Hackathon. Here’s why our adventure deserves the highest score:

  1. Efficiency: Our solution isn’t just about ordering; it’s about efficiency power-ups that automate the entire supply chain process, from order initiation to linkage in FinOps.
  2. Dynamic and Time-saving: The automatic creation of linked sales and purchase orders provides unparalleled visibility into demand and supply, laying the foundation for strategic business decisions.
  3. Project Linkage: For construction and engineering businesses, our automated project linkage is a treasure trove of golden coins, offering enhanced project management capabilities and business value beyond the ordinary.
  4. Adaptable: Our solution is not only limited to the B2B-market, but can also be used for the B2C-market. Making the app available to customers, they can create orders automatically and receive high quality service as the complete supply chain has become even more efficient.

Excellent User Experience

We have created a Super Mario inspired canvas app that is adapted into the Hololenses. In other words, our app transforms ordinary into extraordinary!

Giving Power to Retro

Based on the following article: X++ can be dated all the way back to 1998 (and maybe even earlier)!

With help from our own wise wizard – AKA Grandfather/Frank – we have been able to create our own magic in FinOps. The screenshot below shows a customized screen of item number and item related information, in addition to purchase and sales order and project links:

With the help from X++ and Power Automate we are able to send order quantity to FinOps which automatically creates a purchase and sales order. And it does not stop here – it also creates a link between the purchase and sales orders, which is critical to understand what actually triggered the purchase order in the first place. Additionally, we link the orders to project as that would gain a lot of business value for industries such as the construction business. The code below ends with returning the quantity that is going through the order process, which triggers email to the Hololens-user with an order confirmation.

Give love to the #Retro!
