Hi all. I'm looking for production planning software specifically designed, or at least well suited to, the wire manufacturing industry. Can anyone recommend a package worth looking at?

Hello,

Your question is a little simplistic from the perspective of a full blown MRP computer system using the replacement for the long obsolete IBM system 3. You would have a configurator which could generate quotations, cable designs and routers. The sky is the limit with MRP systems.

You might how want to look at AXIS ERP www.aptean.com/en/Solutions/By-Product-Name-AZ/Axis This is enterprise resource planning software but the major problem with these systems is to not get yourself in a software database corner that you cannot get out of..

Take a look at these companies:

ERP for Cable Manufacturing Software Reviews www.manufacturing-erp-reviews.com/wire-c...ing-software-reviews

Axis ERP www.aptean.com/en/Solutions/By-Product-Name-AZ/Axis This appears to be a pretty good software but again, it may not meet your needs.

Innovites - Cable Manufacturing ERP Software Application for Microsoft Dynamics AX (Axapta) www.innovites.com/11/Cable_erp_software.html

SISTRADE www.sistrade.com/en/Markets/cable-industry.html

Preactor might be a good fit for you, especially if all you want is a good scheduling software. It has been used in the wire and cable industry previously. www.preactor.com/Home.aspx#.U1BLW1dgx8E

Whatever you do, make sure you get lots of quotations after looking up and reviewing companies selling ERP for the wire and cable industry. Make sure you have really great computer people with you when you visit and evaluate software companies. Know exactly what you want and be super cautious. Good luck.

Southwire recently equipped one of its plants with wire and cable software from Advaris Cable MES 4.0 advaris.com/ as a part of its cross-group switchover to SAP’s ERP system to SAP. We understand that this software recently received SAP certification.from SAP AG. www.sap.com/index.html
