ERP for Mill-based and Material Converting Environments

The ERP for Mill-based and Material Converting Environments knowledge base focuses on a range of industrial activities that add value to raw materials by processing them into a form suitable for further manufacturing or for immediate end-use. These activities include traditional mills that turn grain into flour or extract sucrose from sugar cane; the spinning and weaving mills of the textiles and carpets sectors; the rolling plants of steel, aluminum, and other metals semi-fabricators; to the continuous outputs of paper and board mills.

The Exacting Needs of Metal Service Centers


General enterprise resource planning (ERP) providers that are viable companies with a solid product, typically do not meet the dimensional inventory, chemical, and physical properties requirements that are vital to the metal service industry and material converter businesses.

sheet metal  steel grade standard size sheet that is an inch thick. Furthermore, end item variants must be handled under the same item number, but with a multiplicity of variations listed as attributes. Customarily, a generic ERP system cannot make such accommodations. It requires each order (or even worse, each order line item) to be treated as a new product or item number, creating redundant work, and item nomenclature glut and delays, to the dismay of customers and an enterprise''s employees. As a result, the Read More

Mill Industries: A Generic ERP Challenge


Mills are factories where value is added to raw material by processing it into a form suitable either for further manufacturing, or for immediate end-use. However, general enterprise resource planning software typically does not meet the requirements of these industries.

There has to be the flexibility for the user to determine what constitutes a separate item number (for example, a mild steel grade, a mild steel grade standard size sheet, or a mild steel grade standard size sheet that is an inch thick), whereas the end item variants can be handled under the same item number, but Read More
