INDUSTRIOS Software-All About Make-to-Project Manufacturing


I recently had the pleasure of talking with Mr. Jacques Decarie, Vice President of Oakville, Ontario–based enterprise resource planning (ERP) company INDUSTRIOS Software Inc., which provides ERP software for small to medium manufacturing businesses. Mr. Decarie mentioned that his company offers a complete solution to this niche market for multiple types of discrete manufacturing operations

machinery manufacturing  machines or pieces of machinery to be installed on ships, etc. Owing to their large size or other design particulars, it’s better and easier to build all the parts and components at the manufacturing site(s) and to perform the final assembly, installation, and final configuration of the unit directly on the client’s site. To support this type of discrete manufacturing, the software includes a shipping bill of materials (shipping BOM) that breaks a final unit down into components to be transported and Read More

Primary Metal Manufacturing


The primary metal manufacturing industry includes manufacturers of iron, aluminum, steel, titanium, copper, and other metals—with steel representing the largest segment of the market by far. The industry also includes manufacturers and processors in related industries like automotive manufacturing, machinery manufacturing, and construction. Challenges for primary metal manufacturers are rooted in the highly competitive nature of the market, volatile global economic conditions, and the need to constantly employ new technologies to bring high-quality products to market. Manufacturers in this industry also require large amounts of ore and energy for their manufacturing processes.
