Metal Fabrication ERP Software

Helping you maximise profits while maintaining accuracy

Whether the company is fabricating a complete product or sub-assembling as part of an extended supply chain, maximizing production yield, full traceability and fluctuations in metal commodity pricing are all concerns of the fabricated metals industry. Building relationships, understanding customer requirements and end consumers applications is also important for continuous growth.

Being an extensive, scalable and configurable system, WinMan ERP will help engineering companies remain competitive while maintaining high quality standards by streamlining operations and introducing 'Lean' practices. It will help organizations grow, adapt and diversify with ease.

Metal Fabrication ERP Software - WinMan

Benefits and Features of WinMan ERP

Product Configurator

Automatically generates a bill of materials, specifications and time allocation for the manufacture of the product. Popular configurations or standard specifications can be uploaded into the system to save time and minimize inaccuracies.

Available-to-promise

The serial barcode system for inventory and stock management can assist sales staff and account managers when responding to queries since they can base answers on the current inventory and resource availability.

Planning and Scheduling

Ability to provide actual time and cost of manufacturing on any given component with its profitability calculations. System planners can create schedules that include setup times, cost of resources, workforce availability, product testing and timescales based on the data within the ERP system. Required WIPs can be easily amended on the system, and copies of the amendments will be saved.

Productivity and Reducing Waste

Yield and nest processing can be controlled and monitored through the system to help reduce waste during the fabrication process. To aid productivity, WinMan will be able to review and suggest alternate manufacturing or process routes if the required resource(s) is unavailable. For manufacturers with lights-out production facilities, the system can help Production Manager organize these shifts to meet order deadlines.

Finance and Accounting

Comprehensive integrated accounting features will make purchasing of metal commodities, subcontract processing and cash flow management simple. Metal prices can be recorded at the point of purchase on the system for easy tracking and monitoring for accurate costing calculations. The level of metal waste or by-products can be logged and actively monitored.

Engineered to Order

Track ETO projects from start to finish using WinMan ERP. The total number of man-hours and all raw materials used can be tracked for accurate cost calculations. Projects can be created within the system to store detailed information such as materials required, technical drawings, invoices, and client conversations. Multiple quotes can be saved and accessed when required.

For more than ten years, the highly functional and versatile WinMan ERP system has provided the cornerstone for our successful growth, and we are particularly proud to have grown to become no.1 in the UK marketplace by supplying our acclaimed steel access covers and grilles which are 100% British made. WinMan is as important to us as ever, now that we are aiming our innovative products not only at the home market but also at foreign countries planning serious investment in new infrastructure.

The single, integrated business system makes our life easier in many ways. We felt from the start that WinMan is more intuitive in its operation than other systems. Vitally it allows me to monitor my business – take its temperature – at any time by providing live data across all operations and generating reports that can be fine-tuned to meet any demands. By viewing the live data, we can immediately identify which areas may be causing bottlenecks or other problems and hence where additional planning and resources are required.

Our WinMan ERP system allows me to directly and quickly access the management information I need to run the business – real-time reporting of key performance indicators such as operating efficiencies and deliveries. Vitally, more consistent pricing gives a truer margin on the work we perform. Meanwhile the system has supported our company’s strategy of investment for growth and its ability to meet delivery promises, hence strengthening its reputation in the marketplace as a reliable and trustworthy supplier. An accurate delivery date to the nearest day can now be assigned by our sales administration staff within half-an-hour of an order being placed. We proudly meet over 99% of those dates.

As a director of the business it was important to me that the system we implemented not only met our functional requirements, but also came from a supplier that was prepared to take on single source responsibility. Of all of the companies we evaluated, WinMan were the only one that ticked all the boxes.
