We can also increase visibility of your operational performance. And if you are importing  metals, SAP Global Trade Service is designed to simplify your processes.

Stronger links in your metal distribution chain

In metal distribution centres, time is money. So the more efficient your customer service and business processes are, the more profitable your operations will be. If you’re operating value-added services, such as cutting-to-size, galvanizing, plus packaging and dispatching, we can help you increase your speed. We have solutions to meet all your challenges, whether you operate in local markets or entire regions. It is also the ideal solution if you make-to-order at high volumes or have complex logistics. We are the SAP experts in long-term industry contracts, optimising scrap and yield management and helping you meet demand with increased agility.

Giving foundries a foundation to grow

For metal foundries and casting, we’ve extended the functionality of the standard SAP solution to meet all your specific challenges. We can help you map the end-to-end production of alloys, including your scrap metal, blending and mixing requirements. Our solution automatically calculates the resources needed to meet your customer orders. And it helps you work with the furnace’s technical restrictions, as well as model and pattern management issues. So whether it is mass production or projects with a long lead-time, you can be more flexible. Our SAP technologies help you plan effectively, improve your simulation capabilities in integrated production planning and deliver jobs which require a lot of finishing with more certainty.

Operate more efficiently

In metal mills and metal fabrication, efficient production relies on optimised planning. For example, with semi-finished products, it’s critical to make sure you always have the right quantities of raw materials to fulfil your order book. This is exactly where our SAP expertise and industry experience can help. We can integrate systems to improve cross-plant planning, planning simulation and campaign management. Combined order and production data helps you meet demand. And makes it easier to deliver production configurations where there are multiple variants.
