Steel Projects PLM
Steel Projects, founded in France in 1994, provides innovative technology solutions to improve steel manufacturing processes. In 2013, Steel Projects became a business unit of FICEP group.
Steel Projects PLM (Product Lifecycle Management) software enables steel fabricators to manage the production flow and optimize time and raw material. Work orders for CNC machines and manual workstations are generated using automatic and optimized routing through the workshop.
Automatic data transfers eliminates repetitive manual work
Steel Projects PLM has a direct integration with Tekla EPM for stock, purchasing and cut lists. Data, including inventory and CNC for parts, are transferred automatically between the two systems with the Tekla EMP Open API.
Once parts are nested in Steel Projects PLM, a requisition can be automatically generated in Tekla EPM for items that need to be purchased. When material is received in Tekla EPM, stock is updated in Steel Projects PLM. When material is cut, both the Tekla EPM inventory and production parts are updated automatically.
The integration between the two software eliminates manual and repetitive work, thus increasing efficiency. It allows production information to be automatically up-to-date in both software.
Tekla EPM integration has a proven track record with many fabricators over several years
From Tekla EPM you get an efficient project, raw materials and cost management. You use Steel Projects PLM for workshop management, nesting, automatic CNC programming and production feedback. Thanks to the Open API, our users take benefit from an automatic integration of Steel Projects PLM with Tekla EPM, says Didier Bonnet.
“This integration has increased the efficiency and overall success of our shared clients. They can use each software for what it does best.”, says Didier Bonnet at Steel Projects.
“After many years of basic interfaces between MIS and production software using files export and import, the Open API gives new opportunities to make all software work as one.”, continues Didier Bonnet.
