The future of mill products – and Iron and Steel – requires simplification
Companies that buy metals, building products, paper, or textiles from mill products companies want the right quality products, in the correct quantity, delivered on time. They want flexible pricing, delivery options, and reliable channel partners.
Mill products companies struggle due to significant complexities such as:
- ŸComplexity and lack of visibility in the global supply chain that limits their ability to promise, create, and deliver profitable orders on time
- ŸLimited control and visibility over asset utilization and maintenance, making it difficult to balance the sometimes competing needs of quality, cost, and safety
- ŸInconsistent product and price information across channels, which causes lost sales due to delays in responding to customer inquiries on order status, price, and availability
The iron and steel industry is facing tough times in today’s marketplace. In order to meet quality demands, management needs tools to better monitor equipment, materials, and budgets. HBIS Tangshan Iron and Steel deployed an Enterprise Asset Management solution with its existing ERP application, resulting in fewer spare parts and lower maintenance and overhaul costs.
