RMP Goes Paperless with STRATIX

By on
Rolled Metal Products, a flat-rolled service center based in Alsip, Ill., is now running paperless operations using the STRATIX software platform from Invera. 
RMP's STRATIX implementation provided digital transformation in many areas of its business including online production planning, scheduling and recording, as well as shop-floor receiving and logistics.  The mobile app shop-floor functions implemented include location changes, physical inventory, load verification and more.

RMP's paperless solution started with the use of the STRATIX  online Production Planning function where multiple order items can be highlighted and grouped together to create a multi-step slitting and oscillate job. For slitting jobs, the planner can specify the arbor layout, OD breaks, as well as additional slitting-specific functions such as run full or partial, slit and re-slit, and trim. The planner also utilized the narrow coil single and multi-strand production functions available in STRATIX.
