ERP For Metal Fabrication

Fabricated Metals manufacturers facing increased global pressure are stressed to find new efficiencies. Price sensitivity, volatile raw material cost, shorter product lifecycles, and adoption of quality and value added services continue to erode already thin margins. In response, many manufacturers are expanding their traditional business and looking for new opportunities-some in new and unknown markets and others centered in business performance.

Lean initiatives are driving many manufacturers to re-engineer business processes from the plant floor to the top floor to the extended supply chain. These same businesses are enjoying business-wide costs savings, reduction in raw material and work in process, improved throughput, and better utilization of existing resources, and improved customer satisfaction. Infor SyteLine ERP understands the demands placed on manufacturers today and helps you respond.

Success of Metal Fabricators

Acting as extensions of their customers’ engineering and manufacturing operations, fabricators must provide flexible capacity, continuous replenishment, collaborative designs and the ability to vertically integrate sourcing on a global basis. It’s imperative for fabricated metal manufacturers to strengthen customer service by creating a feeling of seamless extension with customers. To accomplish this across departments and among business partners, integrated processes and systems complement the manual workflows from design and product lifecycle management to after-sales service and customer relationship management.

Successful metal fabricators are close to their customers – designing the most effective manufacturing processes; meeting quantity, tolerance, and material specifications; and providing a full range of services from design to delivery. Many also profit from offering total outsourced management to service level agreements.
