Grow Your Business with Microsoft Dynamics

In order to be efficient and therefore, successful and competitive, steel processing companies require not only necessary machinery but also, software technology, that may be leveraged to support agile business processes. Microsoft Dynamics, with Steel Processing Vertical Solution forms the cornerstone of such a strategy.

Microsoft Dynamics is an integrated system used for the complex management of companies. Such a system can be implemented quickly and effectively if the correct implementation methodology will be used.

Microsoft Dynamics is simple and intuitive and everybody can easily learn all its necessary principles.
Microsoft Dynamics gives your business an attractively priced way to adapt and respond to customer requirements and changes. Microsoft Dynamics connects all employees, information and processes across your organization.

Key needs of the steel processing industry

  • purchase planning optimisation of input materials
  • production planning and scheduling including capacity management of available resources
  • automatic registration of all logistics and manufacturing operations in the production process
  • mutual relations between customer requirements and production orders
  • on-line evaluation of the differences between planned and actual results
  • possibility of flexible modifications to routings and related production orders based on machine centre capacities and operating staff, customer requirements and availability of input material
  • specification of material, semi-product and product supported by batch cards
  • flexible system that can react to changes in production volume, weights, sizes, material specifications and changes in production orders
  • on-line posting of all entries to the general ledger

Key processes

  • slitting/ levelling
  • carving/ cutting
  • pressing/ compressing
  • polishing

The most important process at these companies is the transformation of one input material into a number of different output products.

The standard Microsoft Dynamics and Navertica Steel Processing Vertical Solution as an integral part supports above all these areas:

  • Supply Chain Management (SCM)
    • Purchase and Sales
    • Warehouse Management
    • Manufacturing
    • Maintenance Management
    • Quality Management
    • Despatch Management
  • Customer Requirement Management
  • Call-Offs and EDI communication
  • Finance Management

 

Causes

Effects

Increased purchase efficiency Lower consumption and better yield of raw material and thus lower direct costs of material and related increase in profit up to 40 %. The value of inventory could be decreased by up to 50 %.
Decreased production lead time Faster reaction to customer requirements and thus higher capacity to process new orders. Decrease in production lead times up to 70 % and an increase in due date fulfilment up to 45 % and thus increase of turnover by up to 60 %.
Increased flexibility Better use of raw material, faster reaction to customer requirements and immediate yield calculations help in decision making. This is the reason causes lower costs and better position on the market. The market share could increase up to 30 %.
Better traceability of stock Lower value of the stock and thus improved liquidity. Positive impact on quality and a decrease of rejected material up to 50 % and related costs up to 40%. Reduction of inventory area results in a reduction of manipulation and storing costs up to 50 %.
Faster inventory turns Lower value of stock. Less warehouse movements and due to this fact, lower manipulation costs by up to 50 %.
The ability to respond quickly to partnership requirements More stable long term business and due to this fact can assist in increasing of quantity of new customers. Revenue increase causes profit improvement up to 60 %.
Customers access to its stock levels over the Internet Quicker reaction time to requirements and due to this fact cost savings on orders could go up to 50 %.
Send out business alert e-mails Warning referring to credit limit, lack of material or MAD. Better transport planning. Less downtime and faster deliveries. All these factors help to increase market share up to 30 %.
Better capacity planning Shorter production lead times and lower operational costs. Better organization of staff capacities and their performance evaluation. The ration performance/ cost assigned to resource will improve up to 60 %.
Use of alloy adjustments factor Exact reports about real costs related to purchase and sold alloy and changes of these prices reported at regular intervals. The final effect is remarkable cost savings to precious metals (Nickel, Chrome, Molybdenum) up to 80 %. Furthermore, it helps to eliminate the unfavourable influence of price uncertainty (one year difference) up to 80 %.
Batch tracking system Direct impact to quality management and claims management on both sides, meaning mills and customers. The final result is lower operational costs no less than 50 %.
Maintenance management Less unexpected downtime due to machine failures and better handling of the resources during planned maintenance contribute to lower costs, faster reaction time to customer requirements resulting in profit increase up to 50 %.
