Problems are remedied in minutes, instead of hours or days, giving you exactly the right inventory, in the right place, at the right time.
     
Metals manufacturing is a complex industry where market restructuring, realignment and oversupply has become commonplace  

Adapting quickly to market requirements as they evolve is critical

Metals manufacturing is a complex industry where market restructuring, realignment and oversupply has become commonplace. Metals manufacturers are being forced to use outsourcing strategies to meet cyclical demands, to reduce supply chain inefficiencies and to enhance service so they can differentiate on more than price alone. Revenue, channel and competitive challenges make it increasingly more difficult for companies to survive and grow. Adapting quickly to market requirements as they evolve is critical.

Recall Protection/Risk Mitigation  

Recall Protection/Risk Mitigation

As companies seek to increase their control and in turn, minimize the risks, they discover that many varied activities, both within an outside the organization, must be considered. Operations up and down the supply chain must all be addressed.

SIMMS software helps you monitor, track and control your critical resources including activities and materials. Capabilities in the areas of end-to-end traceability of characteristics (i.e. heat traceability) provide flexibility to follow complete histories and audit trails, forward and backward, across the supply chain. Specification management and change management also provide the control and predictability to detect and address variability early in your process. When potential issues are identified, you can quickly determine the underlying cause, make the necessary corrections and provide supporting documentation.

From high volume make-to-stock to lower volume make-to-order to mixed mode environments.

Increased costs and reduced margins  

Increased costs and reduced margins

Growing revenue pressures compel metals companies to streamline production and distribution operations. Wringing costs out of these processes must be balanced with maintaining margins to support operations. With visibility across all areas of the organization from finance to manufacturing, companies can begin to fully understand and address how certain practices impact margins and bottom-line profitability.

SIMMS software provides the company-wide visibility through integrated information and capabilities to speed the flow of goods, eliminate waste and gain the efficiency necessary to meet product demand while keeping costs at a minimum. As an example, support for actual costing exposes all material and operation costs, including indirect costs or value resulting from co-products and by-products so you can better understand how margins are affected and to what degree.
     
SIMMS software enables metals companies to optimize product service and value, deliver high-quality products on time, meet customers and regulatory requirements, increase operational efficiencies throughout the enterprise, and embrace and leverage opportunities for business change  

Increasing Competition Up and Downstream

The traditional united front of the metals manufacturer where rolling schedules were harmoniously matched to mills based on availability and customer demand has splintered due to a number of factors. Industry drivers to use alternative materials such as aluminum and plastics for lighter cars have cannibalized traditional markets. New market entrants such as mini-mills with compressed production cycles and agile downstream processors can offer customers specialized products and services, lower costs and quicker delivery. The level set for specialized customer service is tough for the larger mills to achieve. SIMMS software enables metals companies to optimize product service and value, deliver high-quality products on time, meet customers and regulatory requirements, increase operational efficiencies throughout the enterprise, and embrace and leverage opportunities for business change. All of these areas are critical for to compete effectively and continually increase your business as market demands evolve.
