The Future of Fabrication: Software Integration from Advance Steel Through the Shop
Collapse Expand


Follow an Advance Steel detailing software project through the process of approval, nesting, ordering, fabrication, and shipping and see how FabSuite manages and distributes information at each step. In the office, FabSuite tracks document approval and revisions to and from AutoCAD software. Nesting system integrations use inventory and computer numerical control (CNC) information to optimize material usage. In the shop, phones or computer tablets with FabSuite's Remote Link provide tracking of both inventory and parts as they are fabricated, assembled, and shipped. Observe the flow of data as FabSuite processes real-time updates from both the office and the shop-and, in turn, provides real-time updates and tracking to Advance Steel.
