How can ERP software help the metal fabrication industry?

Metal fabrication is a tough, demanding process that involves taking raw materials, turning them into workable metals and creating products that can then be used to build other products again.

In the manufacturing industry, there are many tools and machines required to manage the process, make it easier and more efficient.

Gone are the days of the old-time blacksmith. Enter the days of the technology-supported fabricators who use everything from oxy-fuel or plasma torches to CNC cutters, benders and assemblers.

By incorporating an ERP system into the business, you will be able to have more control over work orders and control costs for estimating, budgeting and more.

ERP Software for Metal Fabrication and Assembly

As a manufacturer, there are many challenges that must be overcome beyond the manual aspect of the industry.

The push to make more money while remaining efficient and flexible with product capabilities on the factory floor will continue well into the future.

As the rise of the machines continues, processes must be developed to ensure consistency in an increasingly crowded market.

Accentis Enterprise has many production businesses as clients, so we speak the language and understand the requirements of your business.

An ERP system helps to bridge the gap between the factory floor and the administration team by consolidating data between the two.

Data only needs to be entered once, saving both time and money. It can be shared across multiple locations and can be reported on in real-time.

By taking advantage of the software capabilities, your factory floor can be streamlined to include processes and auditing, which can be used to gain certification and accreditation for your products.

See, Know and Grow Your Business as Needed

Using Accentis Enterprise, you can gain insights across the entire business because of the fully-integrated nature of each module.

If you need to see how much metal was used in the fabrication of a product in the past, the data is available at the press of a button.

When you want to know how much wastage you expect while an item is in production, an ERP system can provide a report that shows where the wastage is, and you may be able to adjust it.

As your business grows, you may want to integrate the machinery processes and CAD drawings into the software to improve efficiency and to limit time spent searching for documents.

Keep a record of each batch in case of a product recall and, if you need to change a design or swap a part, simply change it globally across all kits or for a one-off item.

Job costing is recorded for each kit production and can be used for the entire assembly line to work out the labour cost requirements that will be included in the final product.

Although metal fabrication and custom product creation can be a repetitive business, Accentis Enterprise can assemble the requirements in an easy to use manner for the whole industry.
